I was discussing how to dress a newborn in winter with my mum and she reckons you use a romber (long sleeve type onesie) with legging underneath a wondersuit. Is this the usual go? Ive never had a baby before so really have no idea. I was thinking maybe a vest then onesie and blanket but now I just don't know. Mum reckons that the vests can pull up and does not give much coverage.
I can see where she is coming from as I wear multiple layers in winter.
What have other mums with newborns in winter done previously?

We use snappy bottom singlets and stockings under a onesie on really cold days.

I used a singlet under a onesie and leggings if it was really cold and socks underneath. Plus a beanie and the mittens if it was extremely cold

We did Xmas in uk with our bub and we used singlet onesie, full length sleepsuit/romper thing with feet and a jumper. When we went out she wore a hat and had a blanket. Those were temps around 5C and below though.

I was always told to dress them as you would dress yourself and add a layer. I used to dress my babies in a long sleeved romper with feet, a jumper/jacket and a blanket.

Dress them in one more layer then you
I used the singlet type suits that button at the bottoms because I find singlets roll up their backs then I put them in a romper with built in feet then a blanket if going out or if going to sleep I would put them in a sleeping bag
Sometimes I would had a jumper or jacket over there romper
