I’ve got to admit that I LOVE shopping for baby things. It’s so much more fun to pick out baby clothes for our baby boy than it is to shop for myself.
Particularly as I am living in all things elasticated at the moment!
That being said I’m trying not to go too crazy – a) because we don’t have a lot of room but also b) because I would rather my kids have a more minimalist wardrobe.
I’ve put together a little wishlist of all of the baby clothes I am loving, featuring some of our favourite kidswear brands.
Baby Clothes Basics
H&M and the supermarkets are great for baby clothes basics. You can’t go wrong with their ranges of bodysuits and sleepsuits.
Not only do they tend to wash and keep really well, but they are also really reasonably priced.
I love newborn babies in plain white baby clothes – they always look so cute and fresh. I have picked up these plain white bodysuits and these plain white sleepsuits from Asda. They were only £5 a packet which is really budget friendly.
Honestly, I don’t think you can ever have too many plain white sleepsuits and bodysuits – I’m going to pick up more in bigger sizes as at the moment we have lots of newborn ones.
H&M do some gorgeous baby clothes – I love these wrap-style bodysuits which come in a variety of designs and colourways. The wrap front makes them really practical for changing time too!
I also love these two packs of soft legging style trousers they do. Again they come in lots of designs and colours and they are really comfortable for babies.
Newborns spend so much of their time lying down that I always think they must be uncomfortable in ‘proper’ clothes and so I much prefer them in soft pieces like these.
Most of the baby clothes that I have picked up so far for Theo are quite plain – lots of white, navy and grey.
I’d like to inject some colour, playfulness and fun into his wardrobe. I’ve picked two accent colours that will go nicely with the plainer pieces – red and yellow/mustard.
Luckily for me, there are lots of lovely red and mustard coloured pieces available on the high street at the moment.
So is this fab yellow jumper. Of course, Theo will be a summer baby, however, what with our British weather, summer can be unpredictable and layers will always be handy.
Sticking to the same colour scheme I am loving these bright pieces from Boden. Boden makes the cutest baby clothes with fun prints and designs.
These skull print dungarees are so cute – I love a baby in soft dungarees, and they would go with the other basics in his wardrobe for days out.
Another skull print – this time with a touch of mustard, with this cute striped top.
And I love the little happy smiling face of the octopus on this stripy t-shirt.
And these John Lewis organic cotton sleepsuits with the Tower Bridge and Big Ben design would be perfect for our London baby!
I’ve put together a seperate wishlist of baby things that I’ll be posting next week.
Do let me know if you have any other brands you recommend for cute baby clothes!
