You’ll be introducing your child to the world outside the hospital, and the warmth and comforts of home. The joy simply can’t be understated! We feel it with you!

For over 30 years, the Baby Beau and Belle family has worked hard to handcraft high-quality clothes for the most memorable moments in your new treasure’s life. And it all starts with the coming home outfit! Let’s review the style trends to be aware of, as well as the best quality materials and layers to keep your special delivery comfortable in rain, snow, or shine.
How Should I Dress My Newborn for Bringing Home?
How to dress your newborn for their first homecoming is a personal decision. To start, you need something to protect their delicate skin from the elements, whatever those happen to be in the season of your new arrival. While you could put them in an old t-shirt or something basic, that decision might not reflect how excited you are or the momentousness of the occasion! This special time deserves a special outfit.
We believe the key to a great baby first outfit for bringing your newborn home from the hospital is elegant simplicity. You want an outfit that will be comfortable for your son or daughter, and easy to get them into at the hospital. Remember, this is also one of the first outfits your gumdrop will wear in life! Save the complicated buttons, clasps, pull-overs, and snaps for later!
The ideas on our lists below hit the perfect note, providing just the right accessory to your munchkin’s natural adorableness. Any of these baby coming home outfits will be all sweetness, no stress.
Ideas for Newborn Going Home Outfit for a Girl
- The Evelyn Knot Gown combines our softest cotton with a timeless style. The delicate shade of pink is beautiful on any posh princess, with natural lace along the neck and cuffs. This lace has all of the elegance with none of the itch! The gown knots at the bottom to keep her tiny tootsies warm…until a diaper change. Match this gown with a cap or bonnet to suit your needs, plans, and photos.
- The Lola Lace Bubble Romper is a truly unique, bespoke coming home outfit for your little lady. Intricate floral lace is lined with the softest cotton for comfort and style. A sash at the waist makes the romper fit like it was tailored, while sheer cap sleeves are an adorable accent in even the warmest weather. The only question—will you pair it with the lace bonnet or the velvet headband? (Or both!)
- The Victoria Cotton Gown is a stunning outfit which combines timeless elegance and comfort to set your daughter’s first day at home off with style. Pink champagne silk and Victoria lace define the bodice with sweet detail, while the soft pima cotton skirt keeps her comfy and cozy. Lace at the gathered hem extends the style from head to toe. This is what little girls are made for!
