What is the most practical coming home outfit for a winter baby? A one piece with feet? Pants and shirt?
I'm thinking something like this, but STMs, tell me if it's better to have separates for some reason I'm not thinking of:
I BOUGHT THIS FOR MY LO'S COMING HOME OUTFIT!
So...yea, that's what I ended up thinking would work best. I'm a FTM, but a friend who had a baby a couple of months ago told me that something that snaps up the front works better than a onesie that snaps at the bottom, and I thought a one piece with feet was the most practical, so this is what I bought!
emriley84:I think that is perfect. My advice- bring a spare. I had DSs outfit all picked out, and I was so excited to put him in it. It wasnt anything terribly special, just a cute little onesie with pants. I got him all dressed, and while the nurse was going over our d/c instructions, he peed through everything. I had to change him into another outfit. I was a little sad because I loved the one I had picked out, but it all worked out just fine lol.

We'll have a long sleeved onesie, and then put this over it. (Sorry, no clickie. Using a Mac)http://www.carters.com/null/Out-N-About-Sherpa-Pram/714442755328,default,pd.html?start=
ETA: I think that one-piece is perfect. It looks warm, and if you live in a colder climate, it's silly to heavily layer a newborn. They aren't hard to change, per se, but it's easier to just have a single thing to take off, not an entire assembly of clothes.
ta78:We have the same outfit.. I haven't decided if we'll use it for coming home, but will do something similar if not. What size did you get? the up to 7lb or 03?
