Nothing compares to the nervous excitement before your baby’s arrival. So, along with a good
stash of hand-me-downs, what clothes do you really need to have ready for your new bundle of delight?

It’s easy to get overwhelmed when you're planning for your baby’s arrival so when it comes to clothing:
keep things simple. If you don't know the baby's gender or just prefer neutrals, our unisex newborn collection
is a good starting point. Aim for at least ten sleepsuits in size 0-3 months and a few in 3-6 months so you are
prepared for the next stage. Helpfully, people tend to buy sleepsuits as gifts too so you should amass a good collection.

In those first few fuzzy, bleary-eyed weeks, along with nappies and sustenance for you, you’ll need a
few must-haves, all within easy reach of where you position yourself with your newborn. I've whittled it down to
the following: a fold-out changing mat, a couple of muslins, a lightweight-but-cosy blanket, tissues, cotton wool
and water (for cleaning baby) and two or three sleepsuits. Enjoy these precious few weeks when you can
sit still while all baby does is eat and sleep.

As much as you may dream of dressing your newborn in exquisite outfits, the reality (and
milky burps) mean sleepsuits and bodysuits are the most practical and comfortable everyday option.
But of course, you are bound to want a few adorable outfits for your newbie, especially for key
moments and special occasions. We've got those covered too.
