From the stunning and vibrant foliage to cozy nights snuggled in with your little bundle of joy, having a fall baby comes with many unique blessings. When bringing your little autumn sweetie home, you of course will want to dress them to match the season. Every harvest-time darling should be warm, snuggled, and look as sweet as pumpkin pie. As the first set of clothes your precious child will ever wear, your baby coming home outfit should be nothing short of spectacular. But what do newborns wear in fall? And how do you know your coming home outfit is the one? Baby Beau & Belle can help you there. We’ve outlined all of the tips and tricks you need to dress your newborn for the autumn season.
What Should a Coming Home Outfit Be for a Baby Born During Fall?
The enduring beauty of the fall season is the perfect backdrop for celebrating your little darling’s first moments. But with those chilly fall days and nights, you’ll need more than a romper to ensure that your sweet one is snug as a bug in a rug. Here are just a few things to keep in mind when choosing the perfect fall ensemble for your bouncing baby.
A Mini Guide to Choosing Fall Newborn Outfits
Comfort is key. A newborn’s silky soft skin is one of the most delicate things on Earth. Naturally, the clothes you choose should be gentle and high-quality. This means avoiding clothing that has been treated with harsh chemicals. Silks, linens, and cotton materials are all safe and natural options that are guaranteed to be gentle on your baby’s precious skin. At Baby Beau & Belle we primarily use 100% Pima cotton, making our clothes luxuriously soft and exceptionally durable.
Keep that little one as toasty as a marshmallow. When dressing your baby for the fall season, you’ll want them to be warm but not too warm. It’s important to avoid overdressing or underdressing your baby. Since this is the case, layers really are your best friend. This way you can easily remove an item of clothing as the temperature ebbs and flows, and when you travel from outdoor to indoor settings. The general rule of thumb for dressing your little darling in colder temperatures is to add one additional layer of clothing compared to what you’re wearing. To provide more insight into dressing your baby for all seasons, we found this helpful temperature guide for dressing babies.
Accessories are your allies. As we mentioned above, layers are the way to go when dressing your baby for autumn. This includes accessories! Booties, hats, headbands, blankets, and soft stuffies to snuggle. Hats are especially important for keeping your little angel nice and toasty. Accessories are also a great way to add some additional flare and style. For example, if you’re interested in a more personalized newborn outfit, we offer custom embroidery on a selection of our hand-made boutique baby blankets. Aside from being absolutely adorable, these blankets can be a great gift idea for a new mom!
You and your baby deserve the best. Quality is everything when it comes to your newborn’s clothing. Before deciding on your coming home outfit, or any item of baby clothing, don’t be afraid to take a deep dive into how that clothing was made. Choosing a reputable and established seller will ensure the quality of your baby’s coming home clothes reflects the special nature of the occasion. You want your baby’s coming home outfit to stand the test of time and preserve the memories of your baby’s first moments. The last thing you want is for a poorly-made frock to rip and ruin a picture perfect moment. At Baby Beau & Belle we take quality seriously. Our handmade and completely unique heirloom designs are tailor-made to last a lifetime.
Choosing a Newborn Going Home Outfit for a Boy

Creating a Picture Perfect Outfit for a Fall Baby Photoshoot
Once you’ve found your flawless fall baby outfits for pictures, it’s time to schedule a photoshoot and capture those magical first moments at home with your little one. At Baby Beau & Belle, we’re in the business of making memories. With this in mind, we came up with a few tips and tricks to styling your baby for flawless pictures!
Keep things cozy. To emulate that comforting fall-time vibe, you should choose cozy warm lighting and props for your photos. This includes blankets, the sweetest stuffed toys, and (of course) the snuggliest coming home outfit.
Combine neutral clothes with vibrant backgrounds. We all love the vibrant colors associated with autumn, but dressing your baby in bright colors to match the season could actually cause them to blend into the background of a photo. Instead, we suggest keeping your baby’s clothes bright but neutral. This way your baby stands out in the photo while the colorful autumn ambiance serves as a beautiful background.

Take a trip outside. Fall is the season where nature’s beauty really shines. Why not take advantage of this and snap some photos outside? Before heading to your outdoorsy photoshoot, make sure your baby is dressed warmly. This means accessorizing with booties, hats, mittens, and even a little blanket. All of these accessories will make the photos even more adorable. As for your outdoor location, try and find a place that embodies fall. This could be a pumpkin patch, state park, or even your backyard.
Consider hiring a professional photographer. When it comes to photographing your baby for the very first time, cellphone cameras can’t do the moment justice. Using a professional photographer to capture and preserve the image of your newborn baby gives you photos you’ll want to keep for life and share with all of your family and friends. If hiring a professional isn’t in your budget, you could always enlist the help of a friend who has a nice camera. When thinking about these photos, it’s so important to dress your baby in timeless designs that are worthy of this once in a lifetime occasion.
No matter how you decide to take your pictures, our newborn outfits are sure to highlight your baby’s sweetness and create images you’ll continue to revisit as the years go by.
