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!
Oh and how about these for amazing value and style
Having picked a few of my faves above from the new collection from H&M, here is my Newborn wardrobe guide for the first few weeks that are useful to have washed and stored away ready for their arrival, you don’t need a lot, you just need quite a few of them!
