Welcoming an adorable little one into this world is one of the greatest joys a family can experience. Every aspect of this journey should be memorable, which is why a baby coming home outfit needs to be a staple for any family looking to welcome their tiny love ball into the world. Baby Beau & Belle has worked to ensure that anyone can have a summer baby coming home outfit that is both beautiful and functional in the higher temperatures.
The first year of your little one's life is both a hectic and precious time for all those involved. Finding the perfect outfit to adorn them in should not be an added area of stress, but a lovely time shopping for the most adorable and perfect item. Our family at Baby Beau & Belle understands this, which is why we wanted to put together this guide on what summer newborns should wear to ensure they are both comfortable and stylish all summer long. As our little ones grow up so fast, it is important to orchestrate photo shoots in order to remember them at this age forever. Having an outfit that proudly displays the beauty they possess cannot be understated.

Do Newborns Need Clothes in Summer?
Yes! We have to keep our cutie pies protected. Whether your bundle of joy is born during the hottest dry spell your town has ever experienced or just a warm summer day, dressing your baby appropriately is of the utmost importance. It can be easy to dress your baby during the day as you expect the warmer temperatures during the summer, but it is still common for newborns to be placed in too much clothing. To ensure that there is no problem, it is a good idea to put them in more breathable items. During the day, we would recommend something like our light linen shirts, a lightweight dress, or baby girl rompers. Other wonderful summer options include our petite fleur wrap top with bloomers, and the lola romper to keep your little angel comfortable and protected.

All of these pieces are a perfect layer for any occasion and any season, especially in the heat! The soft linen/cotton blends help keep the baby comfortable and looking their best. These can easily be layered over a onesie or worn on their own as well.
What Should My Baby Be Wearing in Bed?
While summer nights can remain relatively warm, the nights can actually get quite chilly depending on where you live. Newborns will cry throughout the night for a variety of reasons, so let's not let improper clothing be another reason! Newborn baby clothes for sleepy time can vary, but in general, it is a good rule of thumb to dress your baby similarly to what you, as an adult, would be comfortable wearing at the same temperature. It is all about breathability and making sure they are not constricted on those warm nights. If your baby is in a room without air conditioning, then on a warm night, all they may need is a safe lightweight swaddle to keep warm.

How to Dress a Newborn in Summer?
We believe that the best outfit is one that matches the occasion. There are a plethora of activities you can engage in with your new member of the family, and having a unique outfit for your sunshine to wear can be the icing on the cake.
Dressing your little ball of love can be tricky in the summer, which is why this topic can often raise more questions such as "how many layers should a newborn wear?" Once temperatures rise to the point where you as an adult are uncomfortable, it is already too much for a newborn. It is advised that your newborn wear a single layer of loose clothing to prevent overheating. Clothing made from cotton is also a fabulous choice as it is a very breathable material. To ensure that they are always safe outside you should be keeping them out of the sun, in the shade, and moving indoors whenever necessary.
