    Default Summer babies

    hello

    So bubba will be here during the first week of december i think (c-sect) possibly during the second week. I live in nsw (and we have hot summers, but not crazy QLD summers) so what kind of clothes will bubba need, especially in those first few weeks, where i wont be able to get out and about much.

    Those summer legless onsies? Do i get any long ones? Chillier nights maybe? The cotton ones without the feet?

    Winter bubs are so much easier to dress imo...


    So hit me with advice/suggestions

    TIA

    I have had 3 summer (2 GC and one nth qld) mine lived in short sleeve onies with short or skirts for the days and light wonder suits at night in the air-con or light nighties/onies.

    I also swear by using cloth nappy (terry/flannel/cotton squares) to be used between bub and me when breastfeeding so we both were sweating messes.

    Have a few wondersuits because you just never know. DS was born in November and we had some really hot days but then had the heater on for a few days in January! We had days where he was just in a nappy and days where he was rugged up.

    Remember that they can't keep themselves warm, so try to dress bub in one more layer than you.

    In hospy I needed wondersuits for dd3 (born in Feb) it was cool in there. When we went home she was in shirt onsies and socks most days (her feet were always cold, apparently that's normal but i know how much i hate my feet being cold) and muslin wrap when sleeping and on cooler nights the long sleeve no leg onsies or shirt onsies with pants and wrap. Both my other girls were winter babies, so much easier haha
    (sorry went on a bit of a ramble there lol)

    Hi bunny! DD was born in January and she wore long sleeve wondersuits in hospy due to the air con, then we came home to a heat wave and she lived in singlet suits. At night time, she was in short sleeves too. We took a muslin wrap with us out to keep the sun off her if we were outside (only for short peripds obviously!) and for if there was a cool breeze. We had socks and a light cardigan JIC but didn't use them much until late Feb/march. Cardigans etc are good as you can get a size that should fit through autumn and just roll the sleeves up
    So yep.. Umm the singlet suits were the bomb. I bought 5 x 0000 wondersuits and used them for 2 days in hospital!
