If you're taking care of a premature baby, shopping for clothing won't be top of your priority list, so it’s worthwhile knowing mothercare has a dedicated range, designed with the UK charity Bliss. In four different sizes perfect for babies as small as 2lbs, each item includes simple touch-and-close Velcro fastenings to allow access for any special care they need and designed to avoid having to pull anything over your baby's head.
Natural, breathable fabrics such as cotton are best for premature babies as their skin is super sensitive. But bear in mind that they haven't built up stores of fat yet, so they get colder more quickly: that means layers are even more important.
Newborns nap a lot in the early days and for peaceful sleep, clothes need to be comfy. Mothercare’s My First collection is made with super-soft fabrics and is specially designed to make dressing your baby easier. We’ve got all the basics, such as cosy white sleepsuits and bodysuits. And, of course, there are plenty of cute patterns that'll look adorable in their first photos.
Your baby will be much more active at this stage. It won’t be long before they are rolling over and sitting up, and then the adventure will really begin! You’re probably now a dab hand at getting them dressed, but practical, easy-care clothes are still a bonus.
Keep an eye out for dungarees with poppered legs, and leggings or trousers with elasticated waists. Comfort is still a priority, but there are also a wide range of cute designs and fun prints to match your baby's cheeky personality.
In summer, keep your baby cool in cotton shorts or rompers, loose-fitting t-shirts or pretty dresses. But have a cardigan to hand, for when it gets a bit chilly. In winter, layer your baby in cute knits that can slip off when the heating comes on.
Rolling around the floor, pulling themselves up on the furniture or crawling after the dog – your child won't stay put! So soft, stretchy clothes such as leggings and t-shirts are essential. Mix-and-match outfits also make it easier to find a clean, coordinating top when the baby food has missed the bib again.
We also have fun and fashionable pieces to choose from. Take a look at the My K range for cool contemporary clothes. Or the Little Bird collection is perfect if you’re looking for fun retro threads.
Whether they're off to a birthday party or going on a bug hunt, we have the perfect outfit. Your child is out exploring the world now, so you want clothes that are stylish and fun but comfortable enough for all that running and jumping. So we've brought together cute, playful prints with thoughtful, practical details such as elasticated or adjustable waists and popper fastenings.
