Advice on choosing bodysuits for your baby, plus the opportunity to purchase a range of baby bodysuits including long sleeve and swimming varieties.
A bodysuit, also known as a babygrow, sleepsuit or stretchsuit is a one-piece, long sleeved outfit with poppers down the front and down the legs. Most babies dislike having anything pulled over their heads, so look of for garments that are easy to put on and take off. Putting your baby into a babysuit means that your baby is dressed immediately, no need to pull clothes over heads or trying to get waving legs and arms into arm or leg holes. A bodysuit also makes life easier for nappy changing. Short sleeved bodysuits are also available, these usually have capped sleeves poppers under the bottom and no legs.
When buying newborn clothes, such as bodysuits, do not buy too many newborn size clothes. They may be too big at birth or you baby may grow out of them after few weeks. Consider buying larger sizes and roll up the legs and sleeves. It may be more practical to buy 0 to 3 or 3 to 6 months sizes. Remember one manufacturer's 6 to 9 months sizing may be different from another's. Bodysuits are available in a variety of sizes from pre term babies (a size smaller than newborn) up to either 2 or 3 years depending on the make.
Family and friends may want to buy you clothes, so fill in gaps in your baby's wardrobe after responses to your birth announcement. When buying clothes think about neutral colours and younger designs so any siblings you may have could wear them again.
