Newborn Baby Essentials

This post contains affiliate links to make your shopping easier

Who doesn’t love to shop for a new baby? The clothes are so tiny and so adorable that often times you find yourself wanting to buy the cutest, most ruffly, and over the tops outfits. These outfits may be the cutest thing you’ve seen in a long time but before you make that purchase think about the life of a newborn baby. The life of a newborn baby consists of sleeping, eating and going potty, not much more than that. So with that said, fancy and frilly clothes are not necessary. As a mom that has raised a lot of babies, I’ve compiled a list of some of the most useful newborn baby essentials. These baby essentials are a must and will make your day and night with your newborn much easier.

When you are buying baby clothes for your newborn, my biggest tip is to think comfort and easy diaper access. Newborns tend to go potty more often than older babies, so you will not want to have to fight buttons or snaps, especially in the middle of the night. In addition, make sure to buy top quality socks. The cheap socks will roll , fall off and eventually get lost. So the next time you are shopping, if you see an over the top adorable outfit with lots of buttons and layers, buy a few sizes up instead of the newborn size. Do you have any newborn baby essentials that you’d recommend?
