    Default What did you dress your March baby in?

    I live in SE Qld and due to have #2 in late feb/early March. I am going through DS box of onesies etc and wondering what I need, as he was born in mid-winter in Melbourne. It's going to be quite humid here in March, I'm thinking the wondersuits won't be suitable...

    What did you dress your newborn in at night? During day? Around the house etc?

    Nappy and singlets if really hot or a short or long sleeve cotton onesie. For sleeps sometimes just a nappy as he was swaddled.

    I cannot remember! DS was a March baby. I think it was onsies at night with a lightish wrap and singlets that clip up under the bum for the day. I think it might be a longer/hotter summer this year. It also depends if you have aircon etc around the house - if you can control the temp it's easier.

    I found during that time the best options were things to layer - short sleeve cotton onesie with no legs during the middle of the day, pop leggings over it early morning/evening, light jacket over it if going out at night and it's a bit cool.

    For night time sleep we usually went with something similar, or a long cotton onesie with no feet, with a light wrap.

    Depends a bit on where you are though in SEQ - We get about 4 degrees hotter in the day and colder at night than Bris. But the coasts tend to stay a bit cooler due to sea breezes. So yeah - layers are good!

    Think I might need to invest in some short sleeves by the sound of it! We do have ducted aircon but it's whole house so we don't run it all day or all night, it's more just to cool the house down etc. March is normally super humid and we usually run the ceiling fans all night.
    So hard to know! Am sure nights will be easier once bub is in a grow bag & I can go by the temperature guide.
