My daughter was a November baby, so well a truly a winter start! Lots of cardigans, I found them so useful and easy to get on and off, layering is best as can be warm when you go inside, so you want something you can take off quickly. Hats too, as can come off easily when in and out of places when out. A good sheepskin is great for the pram, really helps to regulate temperature. And a couple of good winter snuggly all in ones.

Lots of blankets and ling sleeve vests. Fleecy sleepsuits are good or little cardys over the sleepsuit or outfit. Socks and hat and mittens.

Sienna had a snowsuit but i never used it with her i found it too chinky for carseat. Obviously outfit wise just buy bits in the shop when winter range comes out and add layers :-) x

Eva was born in December and I was out walking the dogs with her in the carrier from 10 days old. Lots of layers-long sleeved vests under long sleeved sleepsuits. She had a snowsuit for the carrier with or without a blanket wrapped round depending on the weather. Blankets and hats on the car seat and pram. We also had a pram suit but didn't use it an awful lot. She kept kicking off blankets at night so had a sleeping bag with sleepsuits that had the folding over mittens at the end. Then added cardis or took off layers or went to short sleeve vests depending on the temp.

Remember that snow suits or padded or thick clothing can't be worn in a car seat.

We had a convertible car seat so we had blankets inside the car which we wrapped her in after doing up the straps.

She mostly wore footed sleepsuits with a vest underneath and then a cardigan on top, then we just covered her in blankets and a hat sometimes.

She was born in October I. Scotland so it was cold.

There are so many adorable winter baby clothes I'm not really worried about dressing my winter newborn even though my first son was a september baby. What I am worried are winter maternity clother
I will say this though...get a good pram winter cover/suit, it's essential for quick exits so that you don't have to dress your baby in its own snow suit all the time.

I'm also having a winter baby due February. I worry about it knowing if he's too hot or too cold but I planned to invest in cosy sleepsuits and long sleeved onesies for the first wee while anyway

I could have written this, only in reverse haha. I'm in Australia, soour seasons are opposite to yours, but I've got a similar deal with having a winter baby first time round, and now expecting a summer baby (both boys).

I feel like winter was easy.. I just got everything long sleeved, and layered up with cardies/jackets when it was really cold.
I'm at a loss for having a newborn in hot weather tho haha.. Maybe you can help me out?

Maria was a winter baby - indoors I'd dress her in a vest and sleepsuit and for outdoors I'd add on socks (the sleepsuits were footed but socks are needed because the extremities get colder quicker) and mittens and a snowsuit and balaclava or woolly hat with a blanket/pram sleeping bag over but that was in -20ish temps but the UK, despite not being that cold tempwise, feels cold because of the damp so at least a pramsuit outside and a hat plus mittens and socks.
Using a mosquito net on the pram helps keep some of the cold wind off baby.

Outside he wore his normal clothes under a fleece or wool all in one and then his snowsuit, woolly hat, gloves and socks inside his pram sleeping bag and I would let him sleep outside up until -10 degrees celsius.

Obviously this is an extreme and not something you'll experience in the UK but I wanted to show you it's not difficult to dress them in the winter and don't be afraid of taking them out in the cold.
How far north are you? Doesn't get much colder than -25 where I am thank goodness!!

My son was born right at the beginning of a heatwave (bearing in mind I think our idea of a heatwave is extremely different to yours, haha!!) but pretty much he lived in just short sleeved sleepsuits/vest for the first few weeks! It was easy (actually, I was disappointed he never wore some of his super cute newborn sleepsuits!) some days we even had him in just a nappy.

We're a couple of hundred kilometres north of the Arctic Circle! You probably have heard of the area but don't want to say it on here! Are you near Helsinki?
