9 Types of Baby Clothes Every New Mom Should Own

Newborns don't require an extensive wardrobe. But there are some basics that you'll want to have on hand when your baby comes home. Buy a couple of side-tie or side-snap T-shirts to put on the baby until the umbilical cord separates. After that, dress your little one in his "working" outfit, outlined here:

  • Bodysuits (4 to 6)
  • One-pieces (4 to 6)
  • T-shirts (4 to 6)
  • Long pants (2 to 4 pairs)
  • Gowns (2)
  • Socks or booties (4 to 6 pairs)

Average newborn clothes fit babies weighing 5 to 7lbs. Many babies will outgrow newborn clothing in the first few weeks. Newborn babies will wear multiple outfits a day because of messy blow outs and spit ups. The number of pieces you really need depends on how many loads of laundry you want to do a day.
