Best Baby Clothes – A practical guide to dressing your newborn
This page is a Cliff Notes to Baby Clothes. Here’s what it contains:
A quick note on baby clothes in the early days: everyone and their mom is going to buy you baby clothes, whether you ask for them or not, so you really don’t need to register for a ton, except for a few key items, which is what you’ll find here.
Best Baby Clothes for Homecoming & The First Two Weeks
Right after birth, your baby will be sporting his umbilical cord stump for the first 10-20 days (mmm, looks like bacon). This stump can be short or long depending on where it was clamped. If it’s on the longer side, you may want to stick to newborn kimonos and such, which won’t rub and irritate it. Think of it as a really deep scab that you don’t want coming off too early.
Newborn Umbilical Stump
In addition to folding down her diaper (so as not to rub against the stump), stock up on a few “kimono” tops or any piece of clothing that wraps around and snaps on the side. The side snapping also means you don’t have to pull something down over your baby’s head, which can be a little intimidating in the beginning. (Seriously– it can be nerve wracking.)
Did you know? “Layette” is a fancy word for super cute Insta-worthy newborn clothes.
It’s also nice to keep a hat on your baby’s head for the first couple of weeks (god forBID you leave the house with a hat-less baby, all the old-timers and Chinese women will scold you). Most of the hats you will buy or receive as gifts are simply too BIG for a newborn. The ones from the hospital work the best; steal as many as you can.
Reminder: the AAP recommends that baby not sleep with a hat, so as to avoid overheating.
Also, get some scratch mittens to cover those sharp baby talons (did you see Edward Scissorhands?). They will get lost, so make sure you have a few pairs.
Some say newborns should have access to their hands to soothe themselves (to suck their hand, thumb, etc.), so a better bet might be to keep their nails trimmed instead!
Best Baby Clothes for Easy Diaper Changes
If the weather is warm, make it easy on yourself and get some adorable baby leg warmers. These make for the easiest diaper changes EVARRR (not to mention they are freakin’ adorable, gah!). If it’s cold, go for some footie pants. Footie pants are the BEST, but a little hard to find for some reason.
Babylegs Leg Warmer
Keep in mind that you are going to be changing A LOT of diapers throughout the day for newborns, so you want clothing that makes this easier for you, not more of a struggle. Remember too that newborns grow FAST, so you really don’t need to go crazy with newborn outfits. Especially if you’re a parent looking to maximize skin-to-skin benefits, you might even find it easier to just diaper and swaddle the baby a lot of the time, in which case you only need one or two clothing pieces for outings.
The Anatomy of Baby’s Wardrobe
Onesies are the staple of baby’s wardrobe (note: most stores call them “bodysuits” because Gerber has a trademark on the word “onesie”). People use onesies instead of regular shirts because they snap at the crotch, thereby preventing them from hiking up and exposing sweet, kissable baby bellies to the cold. Unless you live in a warm climate, long-sleeved onesies are preferred to keep those pudgy little arms warm.
You should have several onesies for each stage of development. You can buy them in 3 and 5-packs, and they’re not terribly expensive. Amazon has a great selection, as does Target. That said, the mommies agree that our favorite onesies are from Baby Gap. They hold up very well in the wash, last forever, and are stretchy around the neck and shoulders, which makes for easy on and off.
Gap Bodysuits – 3-pack
There are a TON of onesies out there. Too many to list. If you have a sense of humor, try Cafe Press. Where else can you get a “Does my butt look big in this diaper?” onesie?
No explanation needed here.
If it’s not warm, you’ll need pants to accompany the aforementioned onesie. Jeans are a great staple because they go with just about anything, but cotton pants are much more comfortable.
My favorite spot for jeans is Old Navy. Baby Gap also has cute pants, although they run pretty slim and tall. Izzie and Owie also makes adorable leggings that are so stretchy they’ll fit your kid until AT LEAST the age of two.
A note about baby pants…they’re not the easiest things to get on and off. It requires a bit of juggling, which leads me to the KING of all clothing necessities…
The footed onesie: remember it, write it down, take a picture of it (that’s a Friday reference. If you’re too young to know what that is, do yourself a favor and watch it. You’re welcome!)
Make no mistake about it, the footed onesie is the most awesome, easy, useful piece of clothing you can buy. Forget about a onesie, pants, socks, shoes, and mitts. The footed onesie takes care of it all! For practical (and lazy) mommies, this is the way to go.
Listen up: The problem is… the clothing industry simply cannot decide what to CALL this piece of clothing, so what happens is they lump it in with other types of clothing: onesies, jammies, dresses…you name it, and they get lost in the mix. Because of that, they’re kinda hard to find. I clearly remember having difficulty finding them when we finally declared war on Lucie’s wardrobe (after her socks and shoes fell off 17 times in one day).
There isn’t much distinction between footed onesies and jammies per se, except the ones that look jammy-esque are called jammies. Potato, po-TAH-to.
Jammies are easier to find because stores just call them pajamas, unlike the aforementioned situation. Footed jammies are the best to ensure those little feet stay nice and warm.
For newborns, you can also get sleeping gowns.
The big benefit of the sleeping gown is easy middle-of-the-night diaper changes, so they are perfect for the first month when your baby poops every couple of hours and needs EASY, frequent nighttime diaper changes. After about 4-5 weeks, the pooping-frequency slows waaaay down and nighttime changes are not as critical.
The downside of sleeping gowns is that they tend to hike up around baby’s tummy, which is very annoying. So to ensure warm feet and legs, sleeping gowns are best used in conjunction with a swaddler or swaddling blanket. Speaking of which…
Footwear for newborns is strictly for warmth. Let’s face it; they aren’t exactly running around in the street, right?
If your baby is not wearing a footed outfit, you’ll need some socks to keep those feet warm — and if it’s pretty cold outside, some shoes or booties.
The problem with baby socks and shoes is that they really, really do not stay on very well, with a few exceptions.
The socks-that-stay-on-the-best award goes to Best Ever First Socks by Hanna Andersson. Trumpette makes the cutest little socks-that-look-like shoes for both girls and boys that stay on fairly well. Another highly rated sock is from Baby Gap. Lastly, Babyfit FOREVER are comfy, breathable socks that stay on and have underfoot ribbing.
Shake Your Booties
Robeez makes cute little baby shoes that stay on as best as one could expect. Zutano makes ugly-but-necessary baby booties (right). I also LOVE these baby mocs by Nowali – I used these every day in the winter. Two Little Beans also makes the most wonderful little baby slippers in tons of amazing designs.
When it’s cold outside, you’ll want a jacket and/or a heavier coat, especially if you spend a lot of time outside walking, going to the park, etc. If you’re in a milder climate, a simple hoodie may do the trick.
For your stroller, I loves me a good footmuff (insert “that’s what he said” here). Blankets do not stay on well, but a footmuff will stay in place and allows you to zip it up around your baby.
Washing Baby Clothes
Yes, you can use regular detergent to wash your baby’s clothes.
“Unless your baby has allergies or very sensitive skin, this shouldn’t be a problem for her, no matter how young she is.”
Mary Spraker, pediatric dermatologist at Emory University in Atlanta.
Be sure to choose a liquid detergent, as it tends to rinse more thoroughly, especially if you have hard water. Powders are more likely to leave flakes on clothing that can irritate baby’s skin and to strip flame-retardants from clothes.
If her skin does seem irritated or she seems itchy, try a detergent that’s free of dyes and fragrances (this still doesn’t necessarily need to be baby-specific). If you still notice a reaction, try rinsing the clothing twice or use a baby detergent until she is at least a year old. Dr. Spraker says, “Allergies to fragrances in laundry cleaners are rare, but they do occur occasionally.” Bottom line: unless you have a specific concern, whatever detergent you are using for the rest of your family is just dandy.
The “Best of” Baby Clothing
We asked our Facebook friends to name their favorite brands/stores. Here are the results (by $$$):
$ ~ Economy
$$ ~ Medium Priced
$$$ ~ High Dollar
If you’re having sticker shock, look up a local baby consignment store in your area. You can usually get nice, second-hand clothes for a fraction of the price. You can even sell them back when they no longer fit. It’s a win-win!
Onward. Time for our very favorite time of the day…
9. Playtime! With lots of fun toys for babies and infants!

35+ Best Baby Clothes & Brands (2021 Picks)
Are you preparing the shopping list for new baby clothes but not sure where to start?
Bringing home your newborn is an exciting yet terrifying experience. Undoubtedly, it will be an unforgettable time that you’ll cherish forever.
But before all this, we have to make sure we’ve got everything on our shopping list checked off — that includes clothing.
We’ve searched high and low and put together this comprehensive list of the best baby clothes and brands.
Onesies are bodysuits for babies. They’re probably some of the most convenient and easy to use baby clothes there are. They suit pretty much any occasion, from naptime to nighttime to playtime.
Onesies are also super easy for us moms. If you buy those that snap closed all the way down, you can get them on your little one in no time.
Not to mention that they’re perfect for winter, as little to no cold air is let through. Because it’s one piece, you don’t have to worry about the shirt gliding up, exposing the tummy chub. On the other hand, they also serve our babies well during the summer, as your little one will wear less clothes.
I wish I knew this tip with my first child, but a onesie is also designed to roll down past the baby’s shoulders and can be taken off by the feet. This is helpful because if your little one is a mess you do not have to pass dirty clothing over their head.

1. Simple Joys Baby Boy Onesies by Carter’s Baby
These bodysuits from Carter’s are so cute and will fit your little boy perfectly.
Simple Joys gives you a pack of six different onesies, all with cute designs and colors. The onesie is a classic pull-on type, with expandable shoulders, and snaps at the bottom.
The material is a cotton blend, but may vary depending on the design. They do tend to shrink a little after the first wash, so it’s best to buy one size up.
2. Gerber Baby Girls’ Short-Sleeve Onesies
Gerber is a well-known brand, and they sure don’t disappoint with this onesie.
The material is 100 percent cotton, soft enough for delicate skin. Gerber gives you a pack with five different colors and designs.
The onesies feature a pull-on neck with expandable material by the shoulders for easy on and off. There are bottom snaps for easy diaper changing.
However, they are short sleeved, so not suitable for the winter unless under layers, but still, they’re super cute!
3. L’ovedbaby Unisex Baby Bodysuit
This onesie from L’ovedbaby is the perfect suit for your newborn. The material is 100 percent organic cotton, making it durable for multiple washes and super soft for baby.
It’s in an adorable kimono style, with buttons running down the side and a strap keeping it in place on the inside. So it’s very easy to get on and off.
That said, this is quite expensive, although it’s a very good quality product.
Leggings and pull-on pants are another essential to include on your shopping list. Onesies are convenient for quick and easy use, but separate items, such as leggings and pants, allow you to make quick changes to just a part of an outfit.
Leggings and pants are also excellent for the winter months, where it’s good to add a layer of clothing to little legs. Buying some of different textures and thickness may help with this.
One thing to look out for is the size. Make sure that the item isn’t sitting too tight around your baby’s waist. That said, you also don’t want some that are going to slide off with every wiggle.
The best thing to do is look for those with stretchy waistbands, which will grow with your baby’s expanding tummy.
4. Luvable Friends Baby Cotton Tapered Ankle Pants
Best Pants/Leggings for Active Babies
Active babies need a pair of pants that will stay on while they wiggle, roll over, and perhaps crawl. These pants from Luvable Friends are flexible, yet durable.
The material is 100 percent cotton, making them soft and expandable for growing legs. The waistband is elastic and will stay on, yet won’t sit too tight around the little tummy, and the ankles are tapered for extra hold.
5. CozyWay Baby Tights Seamless Leggings
Best Dress-Up Pants/Leggings
The footie leggings from CozyWay are perfect for a fancy Sunday, where you feel like dressing your little one up. The material is 80 percent breathable cotton, suitable for different seasons.
Even though CozyWay advertises them as girl’s leggings, the white, black and gray color options make them suitable for small baby boys too.
However, if your little one is beginning to walk, these may not be the best choice. The feet can be slippery.
6. Leveret Solid Baby Crawling Pants
Best Lounge Pants/Leggings
This pant/legging set from Leverat is perfect for lazy days when you don’t have anything planned. The crawling pants are a blend of cotton and polyester, while the leggings are 100 percent cotton.
They’re very simple, and suitable for both genders. Plus they have a stretchy waistband, so you’ll be sure they can accommodate a growing tummy.
In saying this, some moms do complain that the leggings aren’t as soft as the pants.
Unless you’re planning on dressing your little one in onesies all the time, you’ll need some tops and shirts.
Much like pants and leggings, these are essential. They’re excellent for putting small outfits together, as well as when your little one needs changing. You can simply remove the dirty top and replace it with a new, fresh one.
But remember, when buying shirts and tops, look for those with expandable necks or snaps near the opening. Trying to squeeze your baby’s head through a tight turtleneck won’t be a fun experience for your baby — or you. It might even result in them dreading changing time.
7. Simple Joys by Carter’s Baby Side-Snap Long-Sleeve Shirt
Best Homecoming Tops/Shirts
When the time comes to bring baby home from hospital, it’s always nice to have something gender-neutral to dress them in. This set of five white long-sleeved shirts from Simple Joys by Carter’s is a perfect choice for homecoming clothes.
The shirt itself has side buttons all the way down so is quick and easy to put on a newborn. This is a definite plus for first-time moms (dressing a newborn can be daunting).
8. Moon and Back Girls’ Infant Organic V-Neck T-Shirt
Best Shirts/Tops for Baby Girls
This set of five short-sleeved T-shirts from Moon and Back are exceptional for little girls. The fabric is 100 percent organic cotton, making it soft and comfy, yet stylish. The v-neck is stretchy and easy to slide over the head.
Although these are for girls, there are color options suited for boys as well. If you like gender-neutral colors, I highly recommend the Grey Heather set.
9. Baby Boy Funny Letter Printed Tops
Best Shirts/Tops for Baby Boys
Baby boys are so energetic and fun to be around. But this shirt will give the other parents something extra to look at. The shirt is all black with white bold letters spelling out “Ain’t no Mama like the one I got” — adorable!
As it comes in a set, you also get a pair of pants. The material is a cotton blend, super soft and snuggly for your little one. The neck is elastic, and will readily glide on and off a little head.
However, the sizes do run a bit small, so if you want to keep it for a while, buy a size up.
OK, confession time. When I became a mom, I didn’t think so much about sleepwear for my baby. Well, not until they were more than six months old, and I had established a routine.
Before that, my little one would generally sleep in the first top/pants/onesie I could find. Still, sleepwear is essential.
Avoid buying outfits, pajamas, or onesies that have straps, especially as your little one grows. Anything that your baby can get caught in, should be avoided (1).
Additionally, getting up at night to find poo smeared all over baby’s PJs is a nightmare. So make sure you look for sleepwear that’s easy to put on and take off.
This will make it easier for you to navigate the changing process, even when you aren’t 100 percent awake. Although there’s nothing more likely to wake you up than the pungent aroma of a full diaper.
Sleep sacks and PJs with zippers are the easiest to get back on your baby in the middle of the night. Snaps are impossible at the wee hours of the morning.

10. Carter’s Baby Microfleece Sleepbag
Best Wearable Blanket for Babies
Wearable blankets have always been a favorite of mine. They’re safer than traditional blankets and will keep baby warm.
These sleepbags from Carter’s Baby do not disappoint! They’re super cozy with a material of 100 percent polyester fleece. They zip all the way down, and at the neck there’s a small snap strap.
The colors are also gender neutral, so suitable for both girls and boys.
11. Leveret Striped Baby Footed Pajamas
This footed pajama onesie from Leverat is ideal sleepwear for small babies (boys).
The material is 100 percent cotton and the pajamas come in cute stripes and different colors. What I love the most is the zipper, which goes all the way down. This really comes in handy during nighttime changes, when you just want to go back to sleep (so much quicker than snaps!).
12. Burt’s Bees Baby Unisex Pajamas
This two-piece pajama set from Burt’s Bees is excellent for older babies as a nighttime outfit. What’s great about two pieces is the easy change, in case some pee or poop gets on the pants, or spit up on the top.
This item is 100 percent organic cotton. There are tapered ankles and an elastic waistband to ensure a snug and comfortable sleep.
The sizes tend to run small, however, so buy one size up, unless your baby is small.
For pre-walking babies, shoes are unnecessary. Putting your little one in shoes too often can make walking difficult for them when they do finally attempt it. Shoes can also have a bad influence on the natural growth of the feet (2).
Nevertheless for smaller babies, the footwear they can wear includes booties, socks and flexible shoes. Tiny tootsies tend to get cold and the best way to keep them warm is by covering them up.
Socks are generally for when you’re at home. Make sure you buy in bulk! Tiny socks have a tendency to get lost (typically eaten by the washer). But look out for the size and any elastic — you don’t want them to sit too tight, squishing the ankle chub (3).
Booties are usually for going out, where it might be a bit colder or you want your baby to look more put together. As with socks, make sure they fit right.
And lastly, flexible shoes. These come in handy when your little one begins to walk. However, and I can’t stress this enough, look for comfort and support, rather than cuteness.
13. Hudson Baby Cozy Fleece Booties
These fleece booties from Hudson Baby are as comfy as they are adorable!
With a material of 100 percent polyester, these booties will serve growing feet well. They have a hook and loop closure, but are still machine washable.
You can choose between cute animals or a simple two-color design, suitable for boys and girls. The sizes are a bit small, so buy one size up to make sure they last.
14. Silky Toes Non-Skid Infant Socks
These super soft socks from Silky Toes are just amazing for babies. The material is polyester, with anti-skid dots on the bottom, handy for when your little one gets on their feet.
One fantastic feature is the smooth toe seam. This tiny detail will keep the little piggies safe from harsh threads and seams. The sizes do run a bit small, so a size bigger will fit them longer.
15. Meckior Infant Baby Canvas Shoes
These shoes from Meckior are the perfect fit for everyday use.
This slip-on shoe is made from materials that are breathable and features an anti-slip sole that is soft and flexible. If your baby is still crawling and beginning to stand, these will move and flex with their feet.
They’re also super cute, both for girls and boys.
During the colder months, it’s essential that we keep our babies warm and cozy. You’ve probably already heard of the rule of applying one more layer of clothing to your baby than you feel comfortable wearing. But if you’re planning to go out for brisk walks through snow-clad scenery, your little one might need something heavier.
Thicker winter wear items can include anything from fleecewear to snowsuits, hats, and mittens.
But like anything else, it’s vital that you don’t smother your little one in extra padded jackets and hats. Breathing and mobility are still important!
You can also avoid all the excess bulk by using a fleece-lined stroller sack while out and about. Just be sure that you protect your baby from the harsh winter air.
16. oenbopo Baby Winter Knit Hat
For babies living in colder states, hats are essential, and this beanie cap from Oenbopo is excellent.
It’s a knit design, available in various colors and suitable for both baby girls and boys. On top is a synthetic hair bob, adding a cute twist.
The hat itself is super warm, soft, and comfortable for small heads and ears. The sizes do run a bit small, so you may even be able to use it as a part of your baby’s homecoming outfit.
17. London Fog Newborn Baby Puffer Carbag Snowsuit
If you’ve just had a winter baby, then this carbag snowsuit from London Fog is perfect. It’s similar to a wearable blanket, but it has holes to allow it to be fastened to a seatbelt.
The material is polyester and the cuffs can transform into mittens to keep little fingers warm. It also has a hood with cute animal ears on top.
The suit can keep your little one warm and cozy in low temperatures. Beware, it does run a bit big on newborns — but fortunately, babies grow fast. I like the fact that it will last a few months, so you can get your money’s worth!
18. Columbia Tiny Bear Bunting Snowsuit
Sharing the joys of a winter wonderland with your new bundle of joy is priceless. But keeping them warm is crucial.
This Tiny Bear Bunting suit is available in a wide range of colors. It’s made from a soft fleece fabric that will keep your baby warm without them feeling restricted.
The zipper runs asymmetrically from midway on the leg up to the chin, making it easy to take off or put back on when it’s time to change their diaper. Also, the hand and feet cuffs turn down to add an extra layer of protection for mini extremities.
One of the best things about the suit is that it can easily be used in a stroller. And did I mention those adorable little bear ears? Who could resist that?
Summer is the time for T-shirts, shorts, and swimsuits. These are the months where your little one can go out and flash those little ankles and arms.
But it’s also a time where we must be extra careful. Make sure that you stock up on loose fitting clothing, something breathable yet able to protect your baby from sunburn and mosquito bites.
Watch out for overheating. Small babies can’t yet regulate their body temperatures; in fact overheating is one of the leading causes of sudden infant death syndrome (SIDS) (4).
Fortunately, there are plenty of options for keeping cool when it comes to summer baby clothing.
19. Sansi Baby Beach One-Piece Swimsuit
For the long summer days at the beach or by the pool, you really want something comfortable yet protective. This one-piece swimsuit from Sansi does just that.
The suit acts as a T-shirt/short onesie with a material made from a blend of stretchy nylon and lycra. This will not only keep your little munchkin comfy, but also provide some sun protection.
It does have quite a snug fit, but is fairly easy to put on and take off.
20. Touched by Nature Organic Cotton Dress
This summer dress from Touched By Nature is going to be the summer essential for your baby girl. The dress is 100 percent organic cotton and the designs available are to die for. Throw in some sunglasses and a cute headband, and your little one will be full of sass.
Touched By Nature gives you two dresses in a pack. The sizes available range from 0 to 24 months, so you can easily buy a new pair as your little girly grows.
21. Derouetkia Baby Boy T-Shirt & Geometric Pants
Best Baby Boy Summer Wear
This T-shirt/pants set from Derouetkia will have your little one ready for summer.
The T-shirt is so adorable with a quote saying, “Mama’s Boy.” The pants come in a geometric design, adding some x-factor. The colors are perfect for summer, and so is the cotton blend material.
However, the sizes are a bit small and may shrink after the first wash, so be sure you buy a size up.
Best Brands for Baby Boy Clothes
Baby boys are generally full of energy and cheekiness.
But for younger babies, it can be difficult for strangers to tell genders apart. Have you ever been walking with your little one in the stroller and a friendly stranger says “What a cute baby girl you have!”? Oh, if I only had a dollar for every time that has happened to me, I wouldn’t have to work another day.
That’s why I always look for brands that grasp the essence of boys. It doesn’t necessarily have to be blue or black, or full of Spiderman prints, but rather something funny, cool, or even a little sophisticated.
I think you’re going to love the brands below as they’re truly my favorites!
1. Mini Roudini
Oh my, Mini Roudini is one of my favorite brands. They don’t cater exclusively to boys, but most of their collections have a boyish vibe. I especially love their jacket collection — it’s a bit pricey, but the quality is outstanding.
What I love the most about Mini Roudini is their cause. They offer clothing that’s made with 100 percent organic materials, some items are even recycled polyester. Their sustainable concept is enough to get me coming back for more!
2. Kids Case
Kids Case is an indie-inspired brand, starting back in the early 2000s. It’s a Dutch company, with its headquarters in Amsterdam. But wait until you see their collection of boy’s clothing!
Their clothing is modern, laid back, yet still stylish for little boys. They have all the basic tops, plus those that are a little fancier. Kids Case uses 100 percent organic materials that are perfect for growing babies.
They deliver to the U.S., but make sure you convert the prices from Euros to USD.
Best Brands for Baby Girl Clothes
Baby girls are soft and cute, sometimes sassy and bubbly. They need outfits that complement their personalities.
For girls, it doesn’t always have to be pink and cute ballerina outfits, it can also be gothic black or sailor blue.
When searching for brands for my babies, I always looked for those that favor comfort over appeal. Fortunately, more brands have found ways to incorporate both. So without further ado, here are my favorite brands in girls’ clothing.
3. Tea Collection
Tea Collection is one of my favorite brands when it comes to baby girls’ clothes. Their items fit a large range of different personalities and they’ve found ways to incorporate every style.
Most of the materials used are stretchy and durable for many washes. I especially adore their collection of rompers! These are some of the cutest, yet comfortable items a baby girl could wear.
Joules is a well-known name. Starting out in Britain, they’re now one of the favorite brands in the U.S.
Their collection of baby girl clothes is simply amazing, I had to force myself off their page (cuteness overload).
Most of their materials are 100 percent cotton. They have a number of collections and even outfit sets with tops and pants/leggings for your little girl.
Plus, if you can’t find something for your little one, you’ll surely find something for you (dare I look?).
Best Brands for Unisex Baby Clothes
Unisex clothes are perfect for expecting moms who don’t want to know the sex of the baby beforehand, but need to prepare. They also serve well later on. Personally, I’ve always dressed my babies in neutral clothing, especially when it comes to casual wear.
While I’ve never looked for brands catering specifically to unisex, I did manage to dig out some that I’m sure you’re going to love.
5. Tobias & the Bear
Tobias & the Bear is simply amazing. They first came onto the gender-neutral scene with a collection of unisex leggings. Now they cater to our needs of unisex rompers, tops, and pants.
The collection I love best is the Tobias & the Bear X Miffy. This features everything from rompers, to bibs, t-shirts, and shorts. All come in gender-neutral designs and colors.
If you’re on the hunt for gender-neutral clothing, look no further! Organic Zoo has the cutest collection of baby unisex clothes.
They give us all sorts of clothing items, from onesies to tops and bottoms. But it’s the bodysuits that caught my attention. These are cuter than cute and work well for both boys and girls.
Best Cheap Baby Clothing Brands
Baby clothes are cute and most are essentials that we can’t avoid. But they can also be a bit pricey, especially when you’re shopping for brands.
I get you — it can be hard not to splurge all your money on a cute onesie for your little one. The reality is that we still have to eat. When you’re on a budget, look for cheaper brands that are still good quality. Here are some affordable brands I love.
Carter’s is a trustworthy name. You know you’ll get good quality at a fair price. Most of the material they use is cotton, sometimes even organic.
They cater for both girls and boys, but with plenty of gender-neutral styles too. They always have good deals, and if you really want to save, keep an eye out for their clearance sales.
8. Cat and Jack (Target)
Target certainly got it right with their brand, Cat and Jack. This collection of affordable baby and children’s clothes is simply wonderful.
They’ve got everything for babies, from onesies to two pieces. All the materials are stretchy and durable, suited for growing babies. Not to mention their adorable designs.
Best Brands for Organic Baby Clothes
While on the hunt for baby clothes, you may have stumbled upon some organic items. These are actually what we should all strive to buy for our little ones, since they minimize chemical exposure.
That said, some organic brands tend to be a bit pricey. You also have to be sure the quality is good — even though it’s organic, the fabric may still have poor durability.
9. Finn + Emma
Finn + Emma really know how to create fantastic collections of organic baby wear. They offer GOTS certified organic materials. The items are a blend of organic cotton and eco-friendly dyes.
The style is very contemporary, perhaps a little sporty, and perfect for growing children. Their new Sloth collection will surely become a favorite.
10. Kate Quinn Organics
Kate Quinn Organics is quite unique. They use a blend of organic cotton and bamboo for their baby clothes collection.
The style is very muted, with modern nature-inspired prints. The colors are gender-neutral, although some styles are more clearly for girls or boys.
You may wonder, “why bamboo?” Well, bamboo is a sustainable plant, capable of growing fast and without the need for chemicals. Mix this with the organic cotton and you’ve got a soft, durable material for your baby.
Best Brands for Trendy Baby Clothes
OK, I get it, most brands offer trendy baby clothes. But have you ever looked at those who are truly fashion-forward?
Generally, we have to look for the big name brands, but their price tags are just as big. So instead, I managed to find some less known brands.
When looking for baby clothes, we tend to choose what looks aesthetically appealing. Here’s some inspiration.
11. Ice Cream Castles
If the name doesn’t grab your attention, the clothes surely will. Ice Cream Castles based their kid’s collection on traveling children in an imaginary world, who leave their mark where no one has ever been before.
Their style is a little retro/vintage, with some really cute, yet novel pieces that will without a doubt set your little one apart.
12. Nununu World
Nununu World is perhaps one of the priciest brands on our list, but sometimes we’ve got to splash out.
This brand certainly does provide some trendy collections. Their usual style is very neutral, using lots of gray, black, and white tones with cool prints.
The bodysuits are my all-time favorite. They’ll give your little one a rockstar makeover.
Best Brands for Designer Baby Clothes
So, I’ve included some of the cheapest baby clothes brands I could find. But now I think it’s time for something a bit pricier.
Designer brands are usually what we see celebrities spend their money on. It’s also those brands that most of us could never afford (raising my poor hand). But I’ve always enjoyed looking at them and perhaps finding inspiration or a copycat design.
13. Baby Dior
If Carrie Bradshaw from Sex and the City had a baby, it would be covered in Dior clothes.
Dior’s baby collection looks like something that would fit a royal. It’s very clean cut, without any extravagant colors or accessories.
But all in all, it’s super cute, especially the babysuit collection. Excuse me while I go break my piggy bank in search of my missing money.
14. Ralph Lauren
Ralph Lauren is another well-known designer brand, usually catering to adults’ needs for polo shirts and other luxurious items.
But their baby collection doesn’t fall far from the tree. It’s super cute, taking on a traditional, perhaps vintage vibe.
Their newborn neutral collection would be the perfect homecoming outfit for your little one. Why not make a first impression with style?
Best Brands for Newborn Clothes
It can be hard to tell exactly how big your baby’s going to be before delivery. Some might tell you just to buy size 0 to 3 months clothes. However, newborn clothes are usually your best pick.
You see, newborns will still have the stump from the umbilical cord, at least for a few weeks. During this time, it’s best to use clothes that won’t irritate the area.
Here are two brands you might like.
15. Monica + Andy
Monica + Andy is a brand on the rise to fame. Their collections of baby clothes rarely disappoint. But their newborn collection in particular is catching our attention.
All of the materials used are organic. They give you cute designs and colors, perfect for newborns. Plus, they even offer a “hospital cuddle box” of a few newborn essentials, such as hats, swaddling blankets, and onesies.
Gymboree has a vast collection of newborn clothes. In fact, they dedicated an entire section just for newborns.
Their newborn collection is adorable — everything you want in clothes for your new baby. They set themselves apart from the usual gender-neutral onesies and, instead, add color and ruffles.
Best Brands for Preemie Baby Clothes
While we all hope that our babies will arrive around their due date, sometimes that’s just not going to happen. In fact, one in 10 babies in the U.S. are born preterm, according to the CDC (5).
Babies born too early are likely to be really tiny, and then even newborn sizes are too big.
Fortunately, there are brands that cater to these specific sizes.
17. The Preemie Store
I can’t do this list without mentioning The Preemie Store. This brand is a gift from above. They make the tiniest sizes for the smallest of preemies.
The style is perfect for premature babies. Some even sport a funny quote such as “NICU nurses are my heroes.” They’re not too pricey either, which is a huge plus!
18. Magnolia Baby
The online store, Lilly + Liam, has now included a brand called Magnolia Baby.
This brand also caters specifically for smaller sizes and preemies. The collection includes anything from sleeping gowns to bodysuits, all made of Pima cotton.
Some of these even have an open bottom to make diaper changes easier.
Best Brands for Funny Baby Clothes
Sometimes we all need to enjoy ourselves a bit. And let’s be honest, although small babies are cute and we love them, it’s good to add a bit of humor into baby life occasionally. This is where funny clothes come in!
Cute slogans can give us a good chuckle. Perhaps try a silly outfit for the annual family get-together, or for some funny Instagram photos.
There are plenty of brands catering to this particular request. Here are two.
19. Sarcastic Me
Sarcastic Me is the go-to brand for funny baby clothes. They provide a range of onesies with hilarious quotes and sassy sayings.
Examples are: “Pretty fly for a small fry,” “I only cry when ugly people hold me,” and “I’m glad to be out, I was running out of womb.”
VulgarBaby do funny baby gear slogans but take things a little further. It’s the perfect father’s day gift to dress your little one up in a onesie saying “I’m cute, Mom’s Hot, Dad’s Drunk“.
They have plenty of categories, ranging from breastfeeding to computer nerd, full of funny quotes.

15 Baby Clothes Brands To Buy In Australia In 2021
Whether you’re shopping for everyday basics or a special occasion, these clothes are so awesome you’ll wish they came in adult sizes.
Ever found yourself perusing the aisles in your favourite kids’ clothing store and thought, “Damn! I wish they made that in my size!” Same. I see little girls toddling down the street in leopard-print tutus or see boys rough-housing in retro-inspired corduroy overalls and have massive fashion envy. But while we might not be able to buy dino-covered trackie dacks or waltz around in a dress adorned with unicorns (or maybe you do, in which case, YOU DO YOU!) we can live vicariously through our kids, because there are endless amounts of great fashion options for every tiny boy and girl.
Here are our favourite baby clothing brands – and where to find them.
The best brands to stock up on basics
Best & Less
Cotton On Kids
The best brands to buy for a special occasion
Marks & Spencer
The best brands to buy something unique
Rock Your Baby
Kip & Co
Goldie & Ace
Best places to stock up on basics
As Australian as Vegemite, everyone knows Bonds. In fact, setting up your Bonds online membership is pretty much the first thing you do after you find out you’re pregnant. Bonds is arguably the place to go for basics like singlets, tees and leggings… not to mention the famous Wondersuits AKA the only thing Aussie kids live in until they’re about 12 months old. You can get Bonds at Amazon, The Iconic, Myer and, of course, Bonds!
For simple, organic, soft-as-silk and beautifully made basics, you can’t go past Purebaby. They make everything from essential singlets to sleepsuits, rompers to jumpers and cardigans, made from certified organic cotton so you know it won’t irritate your baby’s precious skin. They’ve also just launched a brand new beautiful collection inspired by native Australian flora and fauna, and will be donating $1 from every sale of select styles to the Australian Wildlife Conservancy, set up to help protect Australian wildlife. Which means you can feel good not only about the fact you’re dressing your bub in the softest, most beautiful fabrics and materials that are gentle and kind to their skin, but you’re also helping protect our native species, now and in the future.
Image: Best & Less
If you want good quality without a high price, you can’t beat Best & Less, who make amazing basics for everyday use. You can get pretty much your entire wardrobe at Best & Less, with cute slogan tees, patterned rompers and everyday essentials like socks, bibs, and wraps.
Image: Cotton On Kids
Beloved Aussie favourite Cotton On has clothes for the whole family, including the littlest members, with great, often retro-inspired clothes for your kiddo. Want to dress your bub in a throwback to your own childhood? Cotton On is likely the place to go, where you can pick up Space Jam tees, Snoopy Rompers and baby boilersuits. You can also get Cotton On Kids from THE ICONIC.
There are so many great basics to be found at Uniqlo. Everyone knows them for their winter fleece and puffers – and if you have a winter baby they are definitely worth checking out because their heat tech range is next-level cosy. But they also stock great everyday essentials like rompers, leggings and printed tees.
The best places to buy clothes for special occasions
If you’re after something special, you can’t go past Seed. A little pricier (but often on sale) Seed clothing is always well made, durable and comfy. We love these twill overalls, this linen floral dress and these gorgeous zipsuits.
Image: Country Road
Another “adult” brand that makes gorgeous clothes for kids, Country Road should definitely be one you check out for something special. We love these railroad overalls, and this straight-up adorable flower tie jumpsuit. (Again, can it please exist in adult sizes?) You can also get Country Road from THE ICONIC.
Image: Marks & Spencer
From the basics – like a five pack of organic cotton bodysuits – to the special occasion – like this two piece cord pinafore dress – there’s a lot to love at Marks & Spencer, who also stock school uniform fashion, homewares and accessories.
Another British brand, Boden offers fast shipping to Australia and great savings – including regular sales – so while it can be a bit pricier than shopping locally, it usually evens out. Boden’s whole brand is based on bright colours and gorgeous patterns and that certainly applies to their littlest offerings. We love this adorable stars three-pack of bodysuits, this cosy veggie body and legging set and this absolutely gosh-darn delightful honeycomb cardigan.
Where to shop when you’re after something a bit different
After something no other kid in the playground will have? Look no further than some of these more unique brands.
Image: The Iconic
I’m a big fan of Rock Your Baby. If your own aesthetic isn’t super cutesy and you like clothes with a bit of an edge, this is where you need to shop for your kiddo. RYB (and their older brand, Rock Your Kid) make funky, cool and colourful clothes for confident kids.
Image: The Iconic
Another brand offering a slightly edgier look for babies, Huxbaby’s range is full of animal prints, bold colours and cool graphics.
Aussie brand Gorman is beloved by so many mums, so it was pretty exciting when they announced they were expanding to create Gorman Playground. The range is bright and colourful (no surprises there) and made from organic cottons and fabrics so you know they’ll be soft, cosy and super durable for even the toughest of playground tumbles.
Available at Myer, Sprout does great basics and focuses on bright colours, cute patterns and designs that kids will love. They have a huge range of styles and options available from rompers to tees to dresses and shorts.
Image: The Iconic
Kip & Co’s aesthetic is nostalgic Australiana, inspired by our native flora and fauna and I have to say: I’m a fan.
Image: The Iconic
Fun-loving prints for kids on the go is what Goldie & Ace have on offer, with bright and colourful designs like this adorable retro-floral romper.
What should I consider when buying clothes for my baby?
The most important thing when they’re really little is the quality of the fabric and how easy they are to get on and off. Soft cottons and terry or fleece fabrics are best as they are low-irritant and breathable, and unlikely to aggravate any sensitive newborn skin. Secondly, you want to consider how easy it is to dress and undress them. If you’ve got a wriggly, cranky or tired baby, the last thing you want to do is be fussing with buttons and press-duds. Choose clothes with zips or stretchy fabric that will slip straight on and off. The other thing to consider is how durable and easy to care they are. Newborn and baby clothes should always be machine washable because they get so much poo, spew and spit on them.
Should I size up so I get more use out of it?
This is a tricky one. In the first year of life, babies grow pretty fast. I would generally say avoid sizing up for the first two years because you just don’t know how fast your baby is going to grow. If they’re in size 000 now and you’re thinking of shopping ahead for summer and buying size 0, I would just say you don’t know just where they’ll be, size-wise come December. They may have a growth spurt, they may not. You can probably shop ahead for jumpers, tees and rompers as it’s not a huge deal if those are slightly big. But when it comes to things that need to stay around their waist – like leggings, pants, shorts and skirts – I’d advise buying their regular size until it’s clear they’re growing out of them. I would also only advise buying ahead if the price is good or if you’re simply stocking up on basics because there’s nothing more disappointing than buying a special outfit that never gets worn because it doesn’t fit at the right time.

90,000 What kind of children’s clothing is better not to save on? / GORDON
Panties, T-shirts are those things that have direct contact with the baby’s skin. Therefore, when choosing them, it is necessary to give preference to linen, which is sewn from high-quality and natural materials. The fabric must necessarily pass air well, absorb and remove moisture, and not cause irritation on the skin.
No less important is the cut of the underwear. It should be comfortable, not interfere with the baby’s movement, and the seams should not chafe the skin.
Since the child spends the whole night in pajamas and she is in contact with the child’s body, when buying it, you should be guided by the rules for choosing underwear. Pajamas should be made of soft and high-quality fabric, not have hard decor and crushing elastic bands.
Cotton is considered the ideal material. In order for the product to retain its shape well, a small percentage of synthetic fibers may be present.
Coats, jackets, down jackets should protect the child while walking, not letting in wind, moisture and cold.Therefore, good outerwear consists of several layers. One will prevent heat loss, and the other will protect from the penetration of cold under the clothes. Quality jackets have cuffs, a windbreak, and drawstrings to adjust the volume.
The child will have to wear a school uniform every day, so it is also not worth saving on it. It should be taken into account that it needs to be washed often, so the fabric should be of high quality (not fade, not stretch).
We should also say about sportswear. The suit should be made of breathable fabric that keeps its shape well even after repeated washings. The fittings must be reliable and safe, and the elastic bands must not be squeezed or chafed.

The natural desire of every mother is to envelop the child with warmth and care, to give him all the best that is in this world.One of the issues that young parents face regularly is the acquisition of things for their child. First of all, caring mothers pay attention to the composition of fabrics for children’s clothing. It is not uncommon to find a quality item made from natural and safe materials, and even good tailoring is an overwhelming task. An excellent way out of the situation is to choose the fabric yourself, and we will help you with this.
It is safe to say that this type of fabric is preferred by most parents.The reasons for this are clear – the material allows the skin to “breathe”, absorbs excess moisture, is pleasant to the body and does not cause allergies.
The most widespread are:
- cotton – ideal for the production of clothing that is in direct contact with the body. The only drawback of such things is quick wrinkling. There are many varieties of cotton fabrics – batiste, chintz, flannel, bikinis, etc. They differ in the density and type of weaving of the threads.Cotton fabric can be underwear, suit, wardrobe;
- linen is one of the best materials for sewing a summer wardrobe. In the heat, it can cool the skin up to 3-4 degrees relative to the ambient air. It perfectly conducts heat, is durable and wear-resistant, is a natural antiseptic;
- silk is a shiny, durable and absorbent fabric. Best for festive kids’ outfits;
- bamboo is a delicate material, comparable in its characteristics to cashmere.Such clothing retains 100% of ultraviolet radiation, its air permeability is 20% higher than that of cotton;
- wool – has excellent thermoregulatory properties, thanks to which the child will not sweat and will be reliably protected from the cold.
Natural fabrics for children’s clothing have always been and will be absolute favorites, despite their minor flaws.
The name of the painting has French roots.In literal translation, knitwear is a “knitted product”. The huge variety of materials on sale is due to the different types of weaving of the loops. The composition of such fabrics most often has a cotton base, sometimes with the addition of synthetic threads. Knitted fabrics for children’s clothing are considered one of the best. They are practical to wear, elastic, and able to stretch. Due to the knitted structure, the fabric becomes softer, more airy.
In the production of children’s clothing from knitted fabrics, the following are often used:
- Kulirny smooth surface – diapers and undershirts, dresses and sundresses are sewn from it;
- footer – suitable for sewing sliders, pants, bodysuits, hats, sweaters.Some of its varieties have a characteristic fleece from the inside, giving the product additional softness;
- interlock is indispensable for babies in winter, while being very pleasant to the body. It makes excellent golf shirts, sweatshirts, jumpers;
- kashkorse – has good elongation, thanks to which it is used for the manufacture of cuffs and collars in children’s clothing.
A lot of things are made from knitwear for babies and older children – T-shirts, panties, socks, tights, romper, blouses, dresses.They are quite elastic and able to fit the figure, but at the same time they do not stretch after washing. Clothes wrinkle significantly less cotton fabric, easy to clean.
Synthetics in children’s wardrobe
Often, many parents have a negative attitude towards the idea of sewing children’s clothes from unnatural materials. However, many artificial fabrics meet the high requirements for products for the smallest:
- Viscose is made from cellulose and has many of the properties of cotton.Dresses, light T-shirts are often sewn from it;
- neoprene is water-resistant, resistant to fading and mechanical damage, which makes it an excellent choice for the production of outerwear;
- fleece is made from polyester thread. Differs in hypoallergenicity, elasticity, provides sufficient ventilation. The advantage of fleece is the preservation of heat-shielding properties even when wet, and the absence of the need for ironing significantly saves parents time;
- velsoft is made from polyamide, but according to its characteristics it replaces natural materials.The fabric is soft and fleecy, does not form pills, withstands frequent washing. The fabric does not fade, is breathable, dries quickly and does not shrink.
In artificial fabrics, the basic requirements for materials for children’s clothing are met. They are also hypoallergenic, conduct heat well, and prevent overheating. Do not be afraid of the presence of artificial threads in the composition of the selected fabric – most often they will only improve the quality and appearance of the product, make it more “wearable” and comfortable for the baby.
