With our baby boy due to arrive in just 14 weeks, I am loving all the new Autumn Winter range of newborn baby clothing available in the shops. I’m a sucker for sleep suits with cute patterns, adorable designs and beautiful detailing. One of my absolute favourite baby clothing retailers is The Essential One and their Autumn Winter range this season is just perfect for our new bundle of love.
I couldn’t wait to see their new collection and it got me all very excited as I imagined my newborn being dressed in one of their snuggly sleep suits sleeping peacefully in my arms. We were introduced to The Essential One brand when my now four year old was around six months old so we missed being able to dress him in their adorable newborn range so I can’t wait to dress his baby brother in clothing that I know is going to be perfect against his precious newborn skin.
The Essential One kindly sent me a set of their Unisex 3 Pack of Animal Frames sleepsuits and an adorable Khaki Fur Trimmed Snowsuit from their new collection ready for baby boy’s arrival and I just love it all.
One of the reasons why I love The Essential One clothing is their attention to detail. They certainly know what newborn babies need. There’s integrated scratch mitts on all sizes (up to 18 months) which is great for little ones with sharp nails and to keep little hands toasty warm.
All their clothing is made from super soft cotton and there’s a fantastic range of patterns and designs. Perfect for whether you’re on team yellow, team pink or team blue. We know we’re expecting a baby boy but love neutral colours with greys, creams and beiges all being a popular choice for us.
The Animal Frames sleep suits feature the adorable characters of The Essential One family; my favourite characters are Blinky Bunny and Maxie Monkey but they’re all really cute and ideal for newborn babies.
The sleep suits feature a range of openings with easy access in mind; with poppers down the front or to the side or poppers around the bottom and down the legs. One of the sleep suits in the set has an envelope neck (see photograph above) which helps parents remove the sleep suit down the body to reduce the risk of getting any accidents up near baby’s face.
I mentioned the attention to detail earlier and I love the little labels on the sides of the sleep suits and the labels on the back. They add another little touch which clearly show the quality of the brand and their clothing. These sleep suits come in their very own drawstring bag which will be so handy in my hospital bag and then my changing bag in the new year.
We will be packing these sleep suits in my hospital bag ahead of baby boys arrival and it could be one of these snuggly outfits that he comes home in.
Khaki Fur Trimmed Snowsuit for a snuggly baby
One of the pieces of clothing that baby boy will definitely be wearing in the new year is his new snowsuit. When Olly was born, we were given a second hand snowsuit which I didn’t love but wasn’t in a position to turn down so I’m looking forward to dressing baby boy in this super snuggly snow suit. I love the hood, it’s just so cosy and with him being due in January, it’s bound to be cold and there may even be snow on the ground so it’s perfect for a newborn in the winter months.
The detailing on the snowsuit is adorable featuring The Essential One labelling and cute character motifs.
I love the double zip feature which will make it super easy to get baby boy dressed ready for bracing the cold. I’m really looking forward to taking him out in the pushchair being all snuggly and wrapped up against the elements. It’s something I didn’t do much of with Olly in his very early months but I’m hoping to get out more with baby boy in the new year.
The snowsuit also has fur trimmed detachable gloves (with poppers) which are bound to keep little hands warm in the cold months and can be removed when needed.
Since the new AW17 collection has been released, I have snapped up lots more newborn clothing from their Autumn Winter collection as it’s all just adorable and I can’t wait to see my baby boy wrapped up in it all. Keep an eye on my Instagram in the new year to spot baby boy’s new threads, I’ll no doubt be showing him and his clothing off with absolute pride. I am so excited I could burst!
