So, our older son was a summer baby, and this one is going to be a winter baby (due in late December). I pulled out our baby clothes, and it looks like I'm going to have to get a whole new wardrobe for our new little guy (for his first year, anyway). What would those with winter babies recommend?
I'm thinking 8 or 10 cotton footed onesies? I can put him in fleece swaddlemes at night and a warm bunting when we go outside. Or should I get some fleece footie pajamas for him? Or should I layer with jackets? I remember liking one-piece outfits that button down both legs for ease of changing with my older son. Am I crazy?
And what bunting/outerwear would you recommend? We have a nice patagonia fleece bunting that our older son used his first winter, but I think it will be too big for our younger son to use this winter. Should I get a new patagonia in the newborn size, or is there something less expensive that works well? We obtained a used Bugaboo with a bassinet for this baby. I think that should help to keep him warm on walks, but I'm sure I'll need something else, either a bunting or a bundleme-type sleeping bag. I'm really interested in hearing what those who had winter babies think. It was the middle of summer when I was on maternity leave with my older son, so it was a whole different ballgame.
