What do newborn babies really need those first few months of life? While personal preferences play a part in what your little one needs during the newborn stage, we recommend having these Newborn Baby essentials on hand to make this season of life a little bit easier!
A Muslin Swaddle is a must for your newborn baby; swaddling helps them sleep, keeps baby on their back, and mimics the feeling of being in the womb — helping to keep them calm. The soft and breathable material means that you won’t need to worry about your baby being too hot or too cold while they sleep, and it’s also gentle on baby’s sensitive skin. We often recommend having at least three swaddle blankets on hand - one in use, one in the laundry, and one for emergencies (you’ll go through them fast). These swaddles are also great to use for breastfeeding covers, stroller covers, a changing blanket, and more. A versatile muslin swaddle is a purchase you won’t regret making!
Layette Gowns are great during the newborn stage, especially for those late night diaper changes. They have an elastic opening at the bottom of the gown, so when it’s time to change your baby’s diaper, you only need to lift the bottom of the gown up. No need to fuss with getting baby’s legs through the footies or finding the buttons or zipper in the middle of night! Our Coco Moon Layette Gowns also include fold over mittens to prevent baby from scratching.
Kimono Newborn Coverall
We love Kimono Coveralls during the newborn stage! Because the snaps are located on the side, it means less irritation between the umbilical cord and the clothing for the baby whose umbilical cord hasn’t fallen off yet, and bonus - this product doesn't need to go over baby's head (something that can be a challenge during the newborn days!). We offer Kimono Coveralls in the most adorable prints, so baby can look cute while also wearing a practical piece!
Muslin Baby Quilts are great for tummy time, staying cozy while being rocked to sleep, and can even grow with baby over the years. Our muslin baby quilts feature 8 layers of buttery soft muslin material that is gentle on baby’s skin and will keep them comfortable during any time of year. We love these baby quilts for newborns because they are large, versatile, and will be one of baby’s favorite blankets as they head into their toddler years.
Hooded Towel Set
Terry-cloth Hooded Towel Sets are a must for your little one! They are buttery soft and gentle on baby’s skin, and when you shop our Coco Moon Hooded Towel Sets, they are made big enough to grow with baby — making this an investment that will last years, not months! The great part about these hooded towel sets is that they are absorbent and high quality, without sacrificing the comfort and softness baby needs when getting out of the bathtub.
We hope this small bit of advice helps as you gear up for the precious newborn stage! As long as your baby is receiving lots of love, you’re doing great!
