Wardrobe Essentials for Babies 0-3 Months Old

When it comes to dressing babies at 0-3 months of age, you’ll want to stock up on the essentials. Onesies or bodysuits are a versatile must-have that can be worn as a base layer or paired with bottoms for a complete look. Additionally, baby footies are a cozy option perfect for tummy time or sleep.  And, let’s be honest, those first few months are filled with a lot of clothing changes—between spit-up, blowouts, and other messes—so it’s best to opt for practical and convenient styles that feature lap shoulders, easy-to-access closures, and two-way zippers to make diaper changes a breeze.

What to Consider When Choosing Clothes for Your Baby

When it comes to choosing clothing for your newborn, there are a few important considerations to keep in mind. First and foremost, you'll want to prioritize comfort and safety. Opt for clothing made from naturally soft, breathable, and hypoallergenic fabrics, like Tencel Lyocell, to provide maximum comfort while protecting your baby’s sensitive skin. Popular synthetic fabrics, like polyester, tend to trap heat and are often processed with harsh toxins and additives that can irritate your baby’s skin. 

Additionally, avoid styles with features and embellishments that could pose a choking hazard or increase the risk of suffocation. Although cute, clothing with loose buttons and beads can pose a choking hazard if they come loose. Similarly, strings and hoods can pose a strangulation risk if they become entangled around a baby's neck or limbs.


Babies typically wear clothing sized specifically for newborns for the first month or so of their lives. However, clothing sized 0-3 months usually has a little more room for growth, allowing babies to wear them for the first couple of months before needing to size up to 3-6 months.  

Ultimately, this will vary depending on the baby's size at birth and rate of growth. Some newborns may outgrow this size sooner, while others may be able to wear them for a bit longer.

You should consider going up a size in your baby's clothes when you notice that their current clothing feels snug or tight on them. After all, no parents want their baby to be uncomfortable. It might be time to move up a size if you notice difficulty fastening snaps or buttons, tightness around the neck or limbs, or clothing riding up or becoming too short. Additionally, you can always check your baby’s measurements against a brand’s sizing chart to ensure your baby is wearing the right size according to their height and weight. As always, pay attention to your baby's comfort and mobility in their clothes, and trust your instincts as a parent to determine when it's time to transition to a larger size.
