What will you need for a Newborn BabyWhich newborn baby do you need?
I am in an MSE/Shopaholic predicament.
What is the sufficient number of newborn clothing?
Regardless of the shoe you buy, will not match correctly, so they are too big (10 pounds) is not a big deal. What matters is whether you have a baby that makes explosives or is a lot ill, how many you need! Then I went mad with my first one and purchased 0-3 loads in sales, only in the event that I didn't do her laundry every day but I did, so I think I ended up with about 20 pyjamas in the same sizes (all I put her in for at least the first 3 month since it's simpler with so many diaper changes!) and that was way too many.
Value with a few more waistcoats, so I have about 14 waistcoats (variation of some long sleeve - not so many, mostly short sleeve) max and about 20 pajamas areh. Pyjamas: about 8 x newborns, 10 or 12 0-3 (I have a few seconds, so I know they get smaller and used when the baby first goes to 0-3 but in my mind you don't need 12, just got more in the package I purchased than I thought!) and then some "Up to 3 months" and "Up to 1 month" - about 3 of each I think, but it means I don't have to think about it as I have cover all my different packs.
And I know I probably still have too many pyjamas! Muslin can be used for all kinds of things - baby covers, duvets, blankets, covers, napkins, drip/nasal wipes, ill clothing, covering mothers breastfeeding, etc. Just purchased a package of stockings because I didn't use them often because we used pyjamas.
Scratching gloves are good, but drop off! Tesco's are good and don't come off, but if possible, get the pyjamas with gloves on your sleeve (there's a pleat that goes over your hand or not, whatever you want - IMPORTANT for the first months at least!
Buying a snow suit this year, although my two dd's never fitted very well, so I used a cushioned jacket and cover over the leg in the back of the vehicle, which was always better. Got two cloaks ( Oct baby ) - always good to have a replacement (but my replacement is 0-3 and the other one is newborn if it's not used that often).
I' ve reduced this amount of work to a bare minimum as it will be our last, and I'm sure we'll get a few beats. I' m sure I have a c-section, so I know I won't be able to go out and get material, although OH knows what to get now, first case around it had no clue!lol! what do you mean?
So I put a few different sized carry cases in which the weights for the hospitals were marked so that OH could quickly see which were the best outfits. Also, I labeled the drawer at home so he could choose the height and height while I was in the infirmary and could carry more - that made it easy for him to know what height the baby was in and then he could get more if needed!
