Coming home from hospital outfit

With a baby due anytime in the next 3 weeks I have started to think about the clothes I want to pack in my hospital bag. I have packed an assortment of bodysuits, sleepsuits, hats and cardigans, but I would like something special for a ‘coming home’ outfit. I have been thinking about taking one girl outfit and one boy outfit as we don’t know what we are having.

Finding a place to buy these outfits has proved hard. I have looked on all the usual websites – Next, Mothercare, Frugi and other tried and trusted baby sites and despite seeing lots and lots of really lovely outfits, nothing has really jumped out at me. I took a look at Melijoe over the weekend as they often have something a little bit different than the high street stores. I found these 2 options – one for a girl and one for a boy.

I do like babies in sleepsuits – they are so comfortable and pretty convenient for nappy changes too! But these 2 options just look a bit more ‘special occasion’ than the average sleepsuit, and I love them. I think they would be perfect for the big day we bring our child home from hospital, and introduce them to the world, and their new home. 

Although I am having a June baby, we may need something warm and cosy for the first trip outside, so I am definitely going to invest in one of these beautiful knitted cardigans too.

They remind me of the real traditional style of cardigan that my nan used to knit – perfect for all year round as they are not too heavy, and in a style that will compliment any outfit from sleepsuit to party dress. Max has a similar one in cream, and I adore it – he wears it so much, and I will definitely be getting him another when he outgrows it. 

So all in all, I think that’s us sorted. The hospital bags are packed, the crib and pram are built and now we have coming home outfits sorted. We are ready for you baby!
