The first year of your baby's life is very important, and it's easy to feel overwhelmed about what you need to get as essential baby sets. We know that feeling well – which is why we created this ultimate list for new parents like yourself. From clothing and blankets to cribs, we have everything you will need in the coming months. All you have to do now is decide on a name for your little one (don't worry, there's plenty of time!)

What are some essential clothing sets for babies?

Your essential baby sets can be as large or small as you like, but there are several must-have pieces you will want to have on hand immediately after your arrival home from the hospital. Here's a list of what to include on your checklist:

Short sleeve bodysuits: Bodysuits have expandable shoulders, so you can easily put them over your baby's head. If poop gets smeared all over their bodysuit, you can pull it down and not risk dirtying the child's face with the waste.

Long sleeve bodysuits: During those cold days and nights, you may need to dress your baby in a long sleeve bodysuit underneath their clothing. It might depend on the brand, but some long sleeve onesies may be folded over at the wrist to prevent the baby from scratching their face.

Woollen socks: Since babies are so tiny, you'll want to keep them warm with a few pairs of woollen baby socks. Wool is naturally insulating and breathable – perfect for your little one's delicate skin.

Pyjamas: Pyjamas for a new baby are always an essential part of the shopping list. With that in mind, here's what you could get:

Zipper pyjamas: Button snaps can be frustrating. Using a zipper is much faster, and they are easy to get on and off a squirming baby. Ensembles: These pyjamas come with matching pants and shirts to suit any style. They also have buttons in the front for easier diaper changes. Built-in mittens: Mittens are also great to have on pyjamas since the baby's nails grow so fast. You wouldn't want them scratching their cute faces

Footed PJs: You put your baby's feet into these cosy footies before pulling them up over their legs. It saves you from having to put socks on their tiny bare feet each day!

Swaddlers: The swaddle is a must-have for every baby. It provides the security that babies need to sleep soundly, and it prevents them from waking themselves up with their hand movements or startle reflexes.

Hats: One of the best ways to ensure your baby’s comfort is by ensuring that they stay warm. Especially during cold weather, always have them wear a hat or beanie on their head as that will help them maintain more heat.

Where can I buy essential baby sets?

Baby stores: These are the best places to find everything you need because they carry different clothing brands, crib sets, strollers, car seats, and more. You could opt to stop by one of these stores for all your essential baby sets.

Online: You may not be able to find everything you need at one store, but online retailers like Best&Less have a wider selection of and better prices on most items. One important thing about buying from an online retailer is that you will have to pay for shipping.

Baby Fair: Tons of different companies will come to your local area and offer what is available. You can find everything from clothing to high chairs and strollers without having to go from store to store.

Factors to consider when buying essential baby sets

Durability: When buying essential baby items for your child, make sure they will last. The best way to do that is to go with brands you know and trust.

Price: This is a significant factor. You will have to buy more of some essentials whereas you may only need one or two pieces for others. Either way, it's important to keep the price in mind when making purchases for essential baby sets because kids grow out of things so quickly.

Quality: You also want products made from quality materials, so they can make it through all those wash cycles without fading or wearing out.

Eco-friendliness: It’s preferable to buy products made with non-toxic materials so it’s not only safe for your toddler but good for the environment too. There are many eco-friendly choices on the market today for both newborns and babies.

If you're looking for baby gift ideas like baby outfits, baby knitwear, baby accessories, baby shoes, baby bibs, and baby wraps, look no further than Best&Less.
