For the first few weeks, your baby will live in sleepsuits, which are far less fiddly to put on than ‘normal’ clothes. Buy at least four or five and look for ones with integrated mittens to stop your newborn scratching their delicate skin.
Cosy socks are a must on any newborn baby checklist for keeping little feet protected – buy multi-packs so you always have a pair to hand. Choose colourful, eye-catching designs that are easy to spot – you’ll find out how easily baby socks can go missing…

You won’t need to buy a coat for your new baby in the warmer months – instead, layer a knit over sleepsuits and vests to keep little ones cosy. This sweet hooded cardigan is ideal.

It’s always useful to have a couple of blankets to hand – they’re great for layering over your baby in the pram or swaddling at night-time. This cable-knit shawl has a fleece lining for added luxury.
Make sure you choose bodysuits with wide envelope necklines, meaning they can be taken off down the body as well as over the head – essential if you’re dealing with an explosive nappy!
Babies love to dribble, so a bib is a must to mop up milk and stop clothes getting stained. These cute bandana-style bibs look gorgeous teamed with sleepsuits.
Young babies get hot and cold much more quickly than adults, especially in the early weeks, so a hat is vital to help regulate body temperature. This sweet two-pack of hats is just what your newborn’s layette needs.

Babies don’t need proper shoes until they start to walk, so choose soft and flexible booties that won’t restrict growing feet. Pop on over socks on colder days.
