We went shopping today for some clothes for the baby and we were confused on what to buy. We had a winter baby before and it seemed so much easier--long sleeves all the way! We're in Wisconsin and it does get pretty warm in July, August, and into September. So, we picked up some one cute short-sleeved outfits in newborn and some light cotton long-sleeved sleepers in newborn and 3 months. I figure we often have the air conditioning on...
What are you guys picking up?
Babies have a really hard time regulating their body temperature, so you should always dress them the way you would dress. If you are hot in a long sleeve shirt, then they will be hot in it too. It drives me nuts when I see a mom in a tank top in the middle of summer carrying around a baby that's all bundled up. I think the clothes you picked (onesies for daytime and long sleeve sleepers at night with the A/C on) are perfect. I would probably add a sun hat and socks (love the ankle socks, because they actually stay on!) because otherwise they are not going to tolerate socks and hats come winter.
