    Hi my baby is due on 1st August so the weather is going to be quite warm
    I was packing my babys hospital bag and realised I havent bought any newborn bodysuits (just 0-3)
    Then I started thinking, would I need bodysuits under sleepsuits in summer?

    Im planning on dressing baby in sleepsuits even through the day for comfort

    i have some of those all in ones that have no legs in for bubba to wear if its hot
    if i remeber correctly it was scorching when i had my first and we just used to have him in body suits instead of sleepsuits as having his feet covered made them really hot and sweaty :-/ maybe worth having a few

    I've got both but intend to use the bodysuits for during the day (if its hot enough and not raining) and sleepsuits at night - being in Scotland its unlikely we'll have as good as weather as you guys

    I have both vests and sleep suits for lo. I always used both for my dd and she was a June baby as well. I had always been led to believe baby should always have oneore layer on than you?!

    I was told LO should always have one layer more than you on too. Harvey was born at the beginning of August and we dressed him in vests under his sleepsuits. We didn't bother with newborn vests though - he just went straight into 0-3 (he was 7lb 7oz) although he did wear newborn sleepsuits.

    Yeah I wasnt sure what to buy either as our british summers can be non existent at times but I would say buy some and if its hot you could have LO in a bodysuit and if it does get really chilly you could use one under a sleep suit, either way I would have a few handy.

    Can I just check?

    vests - all in ones with short sleeves and no legs?
    onesies - as above
    sleepsuits - long legs and feet and long sleeves
    bodysuits - ?
