Take the time to prepare for your baby’s arrival
So you’re getting ready to welcome your new baby into this world, it’s one of the most exciting seasons of your life, filled with anticipation and nerves. Maybe you’re going to become a parent for the first time, or a little brother or sister is about to join your family, whatever the case, you’re about to experience a new love like no other.
Taking the time to prepare for the arrival of your little one and their first few weeks by getting their room ready, or gathering garments for them to wear can be a lovely way of mindfully processing how your life is about to change and all the wonderful things you have to look forward to.
When it comes to babywear, H&M has all the garments your newborn will need; they also actively work to find the softest, most comfortable, and more sustainable materials for their babywear. All the cotton used across their kids wear collections is organic, recycled or produced through the Better Cotton Initiative (BCI). H&M also uses two internationally recognised and fully impartial certifications for products made from organic cotton, so you can feel completely safe.
By choosing more sustainable clothing from H&M, you can know that you’re a part of their work towards bringing about change for a circular and climate-positive fashion industry.
H&M’s five essential garments for your newborn:
- Wrap-around bodysuits
Wrap-around bodysuits are completely open, which makes all those nappy changes in your soon-to-be future much easier. Plus, there are no side seams, so they won’t irritate your baby’s soft skin, and they’re designed to easily fit around a nappy. It’s a good idea to buy several bodysuits so you always have a clean one on hand for the next change.
- Two pairs of cosy pyjamas
The soft pyjamas in H&M’s collection don’t have any irritating side seams, and the feet have a comfy stretch to stay in place. Best of all, they’re super easy to put on and take off.
- A pair of soft leggings with room for feet
H&M's leggings have an extra-soft waistband that’s perfect for your baby’s sensitive tummy. They have no side seams that would irritate the skin, and this practical garment has sewn-in feet, which means you won’t have to search for tiny socks again. The feet are also made of comfy stretch to keep them in place.
- A cotton hat
No matter the season, a small cotton hat is always a good idea. Changes in temperature can cause drafts around their tiny head, which might not yet have adjusted to the air outside of mum’s tummy yet.
Baby nails can be sharp, and babies can easily cut themselves. To avoid this problem until you have a chance to cut their nails, it’s helpful to have a pair of protective mittens within reach.
