Having a baby in the winter can be a test of how many layers a newborn can actually handle. You’ll be able to keep them comfortable, while assuring that they don’t get too chilly with these winter newborn essentials.
Winter newborn essentials for surviving the first winter with your baby
Your baby will probably come home from the hospital with a couple of little beanie type hats. Those likely won’t fit for long, so it’s good to have backup options available. This two pack from Gap comes with a blue hat and a striped hat, perfect for a boy or a girl. The hats come down over baby’s ears to keep them warm and cozy. For those in very cold climates, this cable knit ear flap hat from H&M is another good gender neutral choice. It comes in a range of colors and patterns.
Babies don’t really need shoes until they start walking, but it can be hard to get infant socks to stay put. That’s where booties come in handy, especially in the winter. The infant Asher bootie from The North Face is fleece-lined for extra warmth. It’s also a good gender neutral choice. These knit booties from the Gap are a little less intense than the North Face pair. They’ll keep baby’s feet warm, but are lightweight enough to be worn inside, too. The bear sherpa booties from the Gap are a fun wardrobe addition. The fleece lining is good for days that aren’t as cold. Finally, these dinosaur claw slippers from Target are just fun!
A Bear Suit
This is really a just for fun addition to a newborn’s wardrobe, but it’s hard to resist a tiny baby in a bear suit. This one from North Face has covered feet and a hood with bear ears. Layer this over their regular clothes for extra warmth, especially if you’re going to be outside for an extended period of time.
Carter’s has a wide selection of fleece and cotton onesies for both boys and girls. This lamb print onesie for girls and this bear print onesie for boys will keep them extra snuggly while they’re napping or when they’ve gone down for the night. The fabric is lightweight enough that they won’t overheat. The asymmetrical zipper makes middle of the night diaper changes easy.
First Thanksgiving and First Christmas Attire
If your baby is coming before the holidays, these sweet outfits from Kohl’s will be fun for them to wear on those special days. There’s one for Thanksgiving and one for Christmas. Each one is perfect for boys or girls.
