H&M new baby edit

I was very excited to see that the new H&M baby collection has just landed online and instore this week. You can’t beat H&M for pricing, style and variety can you, and as the mounting costs of starting up for life with a newborn grow, I don’t see the point on spending a fortune on clothes they’re only in for a matter of weeks. So below are a few of my faves from their new baby SS18 collection. 

I’ve also featured below a handy newborn wardrobe tick list of what I think are probably the wardrobe essentials/basics you need in the first couple of weeks. You’re bound to get a flurry of gifts, but you’ll want to dig out from storage or buy a few special bits you like for those first cuddles. I’ll also feature a blog soon on my ultimate baby list which I used when preparing for Louis, and have updated for this time around.

So whether you’re expecting your first, one of the opposite sex (to your first), or simply fancy a browse at a few new items to see your baby in for their first few months, and why not, then here’s my pic of the gorgeous unisex essentials from H&M. I’ve chosen to feature unisex for ease of this edit, but what does colour matter anyway when they’re this cute!
