    You and I seem to be of one mind about dressing newborns! I would add one point to your advice about pulling clothes over baby’s head, though.

    Instead of pulling straight down from the top of their face to the bottom of their chin, start by putting the neck opening around the top back of baby’s head then sliding forward/down until it’s approximately where a hat would sit (imagine a circle going around their head from the forehead, behind their ears, to the lower back of their head, and back to the front). Then, when the shirt or outfit is in this position, swiftly (but gently!) pull the bunched-up cloth down across their face while holding it out a bit from their skin so they don’t feel smothered. Voila!

      You described it better than me! That’s what I pictured (and do). :)Syrana

    I also look for soft material – not only in the tags, but in the outfit itself. No matter how cute it is, if the material feels “stiff” “hard” or “scratchy” to me as I touch it, I don’t choose that outfit. I also try to avoid outfits that have lots of detail around the neckline, babies seem to be perpetually “squished” down into their shirts, and it looks uncomfortable (to me anyway, maybe they are perfectly happy!) to have a lacy ruffle, or big applique smashed into their neck and chin. Thanks for the info about Niteo – I had not heard of them, I will be checking them out.grapet7

    Primarily something that is easy on/easy off! Nothing like trying to wrangle something with a lot of buttons or some silliness onto a wiggly baby!

    I agree! Snaps are so much easier! I always worried I would pinch mine with zippers.
