How to dress a newborn?

(1/3) > >>

Laura:
A newborn is to be born in the summer months (June-July).  How would one dress the infant when leaving the hospital?

spud:
depending on time of day and temperature etc, but a diaper shirt and a wee hat goes a long way :D  If its a girl a little dress and a a bonnet or just the little hospital nighties that tie on the back .. I was never into really dressing up my little ones during the summer..so I stuck to what was comfortable..Loose cotton pajamas with no feet...do you know someone havign a baby this summer Laura? :)

Carrie:
I dressed my little one in a light PJ and hat and covered her in a receiving blanket.  (not so sure how well little ones regulate their body temperatures-first time mom)

Laura:
With the way the weather is in Canada you never know how to dress yourself, it's better to use layers and take a layer off if it's too hot, or add a layer if too cold.

spud:
Very good answer!
