Baby sleepsuits

Advice on what to look for when choosing a sleepsuit for your baby, plus the opportunity to purchase a range of baby sleepsuits.
A sleepsuit, also known as a babygrow 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 sleepsuit 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 sleepsuit also makes life easier for nappy changing.

When buying newborn clothes, such as sleepsuits, 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.

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.

Sleepsuits are fantastic for little ones, I used to put my daughter Izzy in a sleepsuit all the time. They wash well, you don't have to iron them so it cuts down on the dreaded ironing! and you can get some really funky styles now. Makes changing a doddle and makes baby so cuddly. I have kept my daughters really cool sleepsuits eg Toby Tiger just incase she has a little brother or sister in the near future!
