It’s fall, y’all! In this time of preparing for hibernation, you’ve been blessed with new life—what a joy! Now you’ve got a cute little addition to bring to the pumpkin patch, but what baby coming home outfit should you put your newborn in while enjoying the crisp, cool weather? No matter what the unpredictable autumn sky looks like, your ray of sunshine will light up your world, especially when dressed in a newborn coming home outfit for fall.

How Should I Dress My Newborn in the Fall?

Fall is proof that change is beautiful, and you’re celebrating the most beautiful change to your family—a newborn little bean! From our family to yours, here’s a few suggestions for what to dress your little hazelnut in during this season of festivities:

Sweater Weather!

  • There’s nothing better than pulling out a favorite sweater once the weather turns. Just like you, your baby should embrace the layered look for autumn. While this is a fun fashion, it’s also important because the temperature can change drastically throughout a fall day. It might start out cold in the morning, warm up, and then cool off again. Rain showers can pop up out of nowhere or cold winds whistle in unexpectedly! Wondering how to dress a baby for 60 degree weather? Fall is the time to take the “bundle” part of “precious bundle” seriously — wrap that babe up with layers! That way you can remove or add layers as needed to keep your apple-cheeked angel comfortable. 

Our Gwen Quilted Cotton Sweater & Cap is the perfect piece to keep her warm and fashionable.

Accessories give your sweet chickadee some fancy plumage as well as keeping them comfortable.

The Grayson quilted newsboy cap is made with quilted cotton with a soft elastic back for a stylish autumn ensemble to bring your cutie patootie home.

  • Adding socks pulls together an autumnal ensemble for the stylish newborn. Our super soft cotton blend ribbed knee socks create a flawlessly layered look for a newborn cherub.

  • Tuck a blanket around your darling boy to keep him snug on his special day! The Dylan blanket will keep your baby toasty. Made with a very soft 100% quilted ivory cotton, the camel and brown plaid ribbon around the perimeter hints everything fall. Add his name on the corner in champagne thread for a personal touch!

How Should I Dress My Baby in Autumn Outside?

If you’re wondering how to dress a newborn for capricious weather, think about building a base and then adding on top. Use long sleeves, warm pants, and socks as your base layer. Wrap-style shirts like the Lucy Wrap are ideal for newborns, giving space for their sensitive umbilical cord to dry. It’s also made of 100% cotton to insulate and wick away moisture. Surround your little doll face in plush and soft cotton so she can travel in style and comfort to her big debut or special moment. 

Layering is the perfect approach for dressing your baby for fall weather. There are so many cute and practical looks to try! From sweaters to booties, hats and mittens, there are many options to explore. Don’t forget about blankets! Sometimes adding a layer is as simple as wrapping your babe up—after all, babies have been swaddled for centuries since this technique not only keeps her warm but also helps her feel safe and secure. 

Another layering alternative is the Aiden Layette. This lovely and functional design for newborns is made with 100% Pima cotton, known for its soft texture and heirloom quality, in a lovely shade of blue. The beautiful blue linen along the neck and cuffs adds a delicate touch of whimsy. With kimono style and shell buttons, it’s easy to get your newborn dressed and changed. Top off this easy-breezy outfit with a matching cotton knot cap and send your newborn off to nap with pumpkin kisses and fall wishes!

In general, your growing and glowing babe should wear one more layer than what you have donned. This is particularly important when the weather starts cooling off. However, be sure to look out for signs of your sugarplum getting too cozy! Watch for your little flushing or fussing to remove layers.

How Should I Dress My Baby to Sleep in Fall?

Newborns tend to get chilly easily. They can have trouble regulating their body temperature. Footed pajamas or a sleep sack are great options for a comfortable nap! Just like all baby clothes, make sure that they fit appropriately, not too tight or loose, so that your baby is comfortable and safe while sleeping.
