You asked: How do you dress an infant?

How many layers of clothes should a newborn wear?

You should dress your baby one-to-two layers to sleep—make sure they don’t have any strings or ties—and never cover baby’s head. Until the baby can roll on their own, a swaddle or sleep sack can be one of those layers.

Should babies always wear a onesie?

Usually all they need to wear is a onesie with a light blanket placed over them once they’ve been buckled in. A pair of pants or shorts for hot days can help provide an extra layer of protection against pinching from the buckle.

Can Babies wear onesies with umbilical cord?

Try not to cover the stump with baby’s diaper (plenty of newborn diapers come with a U-notch to ensure baby’s umbilical cord isn’t covered up). Use comfortably fitting—not tight—onesies, or just dress baby in diapers and T-shirts.

How should I dress my baby to sleep without a swaddle?

Baby can graduate to a sleep slack or wearable blanket instead. These are also great options if your munchkin didn’t take to the swaddle from the get-go. If neither swaddling nor sleep sacks work for you, that’s fine as well. Choose footed sleepwear or slightly warmer fabrics to increase warmth when needed.

Do babies wear anything under swaddle?

A short sleeve onesie under the swaddle should be plenty. If you think it’ll be over 80° in the house while baby is sleeping, just swaddling over a diaper is a good option to ensure they don’t get hot and fussy.
