Q for those who had summer babies....... Rss


Hey girls,

Wanting to start stocking up on some clothes for bub to be, but DS was a winter baby. I have NOOOO idea how to dress a summer baby! I'm assuming in hospital I should still use onesies (long ones) coz of the air conditioning? Do I use singlets still?? And once I'm home, what do I dress him/her in?? Also, what do they sleep in? Do they still need wrapping, etc? I live in Melbourne, so summer can be extremely hot, but can also have it's cooler moments. Thanks in advance! Winter babies are so much easier!! LOL


hi i live in Melb and DD was born late dec. I got some singlet body suits from big W (no sleves no legs) I found these great cos you could easy drag some pants over them if i came in cool (as it does in Melb, 3 seasons in 1 day)

My son was born in January so smack bang in summer. Honestly I found the best investment I made in the way of clothes was those singlets that button up between the legs, I had some long sleeve and some short sleeve. There great because they stop there tops riding up and them getting a draft on there midrift. I would use the long sleeve ones usually just with some pants chucked on if it was a colder day and on the really hot days he'ld just wear a short sleeved one on its own. At night I would usually dress him in a stretch n grow/all in one (not too thick though of course) and I would still wrap him but I would use a cotton wrap and a thin blanket over (he would not sleep any other way at night). You should probably just need a couple of new born jumpers at a geuss 5 pairs of pants and I had about 15 of each type of singlet (short/long sleeve buttun up), about 5 wraps and 3 cotton blankets.
