Thanks to generous friends and family, you’ll likely end up with a dresser full of pint-sized apparel for your babe. But beyond frilly pink dresses and itty-bitty bow ties, there are a few practical pieces you’ll want to have on hand for everyday wear. As you take stock of your wee one’s wardrobe, make sure these essentials are included.
4+ side-snap shirts or bodysuits (so you don’t have to tug them over your newborn’s wobbly head)
5+ pants or leggings
7+ bodysuits (both short- and long-sleeved)
5+ sleepers or gowns
8+ pairs of socks (because you’re sure to lose one or two on outings)
3+ infant hats
2+ mittens (to keep those razor-sharp nails from scratching)
Shoes (which are optional, really, but you don’t want those tiny tootsies to freeze)
