Which size should I buy before my baby is born?
While we can’t give a definite answer, we generally recommend that you buy a few items in Size 50, one or two in Size 44 and one or two in Size 56. If you keep the original tags on, any item that’s too small can be returned after your baby arrives (a full refund is available for 14 days). And any item that’s too big will fit your baby eventually. Here’s our list of the clothes you need for your new baby!
Which size should a windproof fleece pramsuit be?
Your baby needs enough room to wear 2-3 layers underneath. Our pramsuits give your baby plenty of growing room. You can fold over the sleeves and leg cuffs at first. When this is no longer possible, you can add mittens and booties so that your baby can get more wear out of the pramsuit. But a pramsuit is too small if it’s tight, or there are gaps at the legs or sleeves. Important! It is not safe for a baby to wear a thick or bulky pramsuit in their car seat – it creates too wide a gap between the baby’s body and the safety harness!
Which size hat should I choose?
A hat should not leave any marks on your baby’s forehead and you should easily be able to slide two fingers under the edge. The hat should cover your baby’s ears. If the hat starts sliding up, it’s too small. If you plan to buy a hat before your baby is born, our sizes are usually a good match to a baby’s age.
Which size booties should I choose?
We usually recommend choosing the smallest size at first. But if your baby’s toes are pressing against the front of the booties, they are too small. If booties tend to fall off in the pram, our mitten clips can help to keep them in place!
Which size socks should I choose?
Socks should stay up, the heel should remain in place and the fabric should not be too tight. A very young baby’s socks will rarely need washing, so two pairs in Size 10-12 and two in Size 13-15 are a good start if you’re buying before your baby is born. Our soft ribbed socks for newborns stay on your baby’s feet and are hugely popular!
Which size should I choose for my baby’s first shoes?
As soon as your child starts to walk, it’s time for their first shoes. Choose lightweight, flat shoes with smooth soles, as too much traction will make walking difficult. Choose a higher style shoe that stays on your child’s foot and gives better balance. The shoes should also have good breathability because young children perspire a lot.
