I’ve shared what was on our baby registry and how we’re getting organized for baby so today I thought I’d share a few of the things I’ve picked out for our little one’s wardrobe! We received so many beautiful gifts from family and friends that I really didn’t need much, but I went ahead and ordered some basic pieces in a variety of sizes (newborn, 0-3 months, 3-6 months) so we have some everyday options once he decides to make his debut!

So far I’ve found my favorite items are from Kissy Kissy, Ralph Lauren, and a handful of boutiques on Nantucket (I got a little carried away with this brand), but I’ve also been introduced to several new-to-me brands thanks to baby shower gifts! Would love to hear your favorite baby clothing brands… this is a whole new world I can’t wait to explore!

  1. So cute! You will definitely need an abundance of outfits in those early days the little ones tend to mess up outfits quickly haha! Record was 5 outfits in one day 😉

  2. 💙💙💙The Beaufort Bonnet Company, Kissy Kissy, magnolia Baby, Tea collection for everyday, little English, Cecil and Lou, rylee and cru, mayoral, The proper peony, Baby Gap…I could go on🤣I have a problem! 💙💙💙

  3. I am a grandmother to two little girls and my daughter loves, loves, Hannah Andersson, a tad spendy, but fill in with Carters, Oshkosh, they wear well and wash well. She saved the more expensive things for pictures and special occasions…She couldn’t live without Boogie Wipes and a suction bulb for colds…especially infant ones.
    And, her personal favorite..Boudreaux Butt Cream…regular and heavy duty, overnight. She swears by it…never a diaper rash. My daughter was 37 and almost 41 When her babies were born.. she says she overthinks everything, but now they are healthy, happy and adorable…so try to relax. Easier said than done. You’re going to be fine!

  4. Here’s a question… I’m trying to find toddler sizes of Barbour coats , the waxed type. If anyone can find them it’s you! I think they sell them in GB but so far no luck in the states.
    And i second the Magnetic Me sleepers.

  5. I live in Charleston, SC so I definitely have more of a southern style, but I love Hug Me First, Little English, Beaufort Bonnet. Auraluz (the shadow embroidery!), Bailey Boys, and Proper Peony. 💙💙💙

  6. There are two things I would recommend for the first few months. The gowns with the elasticized bottoms bottoms are so great for nursing and changing the baby throughout nights of feeding. You whip it up, change the diaper and pull it down quick and easy and you don’t have to focus on snaps when delirious. Also long sleeves with the built in hand covers. Baby’s inadvertently touch their face and scratch them and cutting those teeny tiny fingernails is terrifying. If you can find the gowns with the long sleeved hand covers you are golden, snatch them up!! I love the brand Absorba, very soft and cozy, Baby Gap has great basics, Ralph Lauren which I can see you do as well!! Hannah Anderson is great too, very soft cotton and cute and comfy. Oh and also, Janie & Jack and Nordstrom has a great newborn section.

  7. Kissy Kissy is the best! So soft and comfy for baby. I always find the cutest stuff at Janie and Jack – I find that most places have so many more girl options, but they definitely seem more balanced. Also, second the zipper one pieces, especially for jammies, way easier for middle of the night changes. We have some cute snap ones but I always pick the zippers! Hope you’re feeling well in the home stretch!

  8. #2 due at the end of the month as well as I definitely learned with my first to have plenty of basic long sleeve and short sleeve onesies, plus footed pajamas. I always have a few ‘cute’ outfits handy but honestly they end up living in the basics. Old Navy, Gap, & Carters are my faves for affordable baby clothes that are good quality, plus you can usually find pieces that aren’t too baby-ish (ie ones that have words or characters on them).

  9. Also wanted to mention it’s nice to have a variety of options for the footies/pjs: some with snaps (make for quick diaper changes since you only have to undo the bottom snaps), some with zippers (make for quickly putting on an outfit or full outfit changes), and some with magnets (amaaaaaaazing for nighttime changes MagneticMe is a great brand made of soft cozy materials — you’ll LOVE them).

  10. Kickee Pants are our absolute FAVORITE jammies! They are stretchy, soft, and fit for a long time. My 7 month old just grew out of wearing their 0-3 size! L’oved baby has the softest organic cotton footies. They get better and better with every wash. We also love Lou Lou and Company we used the gowns at first and now two pieces and hats! I love following them on instagram the owner Karen is so sweet.. and they release a few new prints/colors every week. Other faves are Oeuf and Misha + Puff for sweaters and novelty knit items. Hanna Andersson great standby for sleepers they tend to fit for awhile bc they don’t have feet (note they also run big).

    1. Carters 2-Pack sleeper nightgowns
      So easy at 2 am-no snaps etc No
      Dealing with feet etc Find ones with hand covers too
