Pants, long sleeves, short sleeves, onesie with a blanket? I live on the gulf coast of Mississippi and it gets sooooo hot! Sorry I'm no help, but I'm curious, too. I am a FTM too. I talked to my mom about this, she had summer babies. We were in northern Michigan at the time, and it was still way too warm for all those clothes! I loved not having to bundle the cuteness all up. Short sleeve onsies, or short one pieces or even just a diaper or the most part. Obviously we always had light blankets on hand in case it cooled or to shade from the sun.
You can also carry them with just a diaper on to reduce layers. We live in CO now, I've been looking into what carriers are best for high heat. Sounds like lightweight woven wraps are probably the way to go. Most newborns need to be wrapped because they are used to being snug that way.
At home at night I wore the gowns and a diaper They are cool and easy to change baby at night if needed. No buttons or snaps.: My first was also a summer baby. Most of our time is going to be spent at home in the ac so my daughter wore sleepers and had a fleece blanket.
When we went out I dressed her in cute rompers and had a blanket. But really I went out a hand full of times. I was lucky to have 2 summer babies because they do allow a more flexible you have to stay at home with baby for weeks versus during the cold and flu seasons. This time we will have to leave often with big sister for school and her activities. But they weigh pounds so that's why they always had a sleeper on. So their little bodies were covered. Idk worked for me. Who knows what is actually right: My first was born in August so I have all her clothes.
I think it all depends if you have central AC at your home We do but my parents don't, so I remember at home I had DD with a onesie and pants, sometimes even a long sleeve something But at my parents she would wear shorts or sometimes just a onesie because it was so hot. The going home outfit was pants, onesie, a little long sleeve cover up that came with the set and baby hat and socks DH had the AC running in the car so it wasn't hot at all for baby.
Summer days vary in nyc. I always figured a baby had to be snuggled when newborn so i planned on snuggling him but now i worry if he would be hot. I use cloth diaper with no plastic imagine your bum sitting in a grocery bag: I wear in a rapsidy breeze woven wrap. I can single layer it to keep baby cool. A muslin Blanket is fine too if I am not wrapping. What you are comfy in is what baby should use too. I have always heard to put one extra thin layer on baby than you yourself would be comfortable in.
I had an August 1st baby and she was brought home in a light weight pants, onsie, long sleeve wrap around top, hat and socks. I like to put the extra layer on and if they become too warm you can take it off. Keep in mind how often your own family will actually be in the excessive heat. I always tried to keep the baby indoors as much as possible but didn't have too long before it got cool with an August baby.
So an early summer baby will be new for me as well. I have July and August boys and live in Florida and due this time in June I never even thought about this with my first two and I will wear this little munchkin.. It gets super hot here and one of my boys loved to be in clothes as an infant and the other loved being naked just a diaper. My first was born the beginning of July and I just dressed him how I was comfortable, then I carried an extra blanket, also clothes in case we were out after sunset.
You have to consider what temperature you will be in, inside or outside, AC or not. I also used a baby carrier but tried to make sure he never got to warm if we were outside and took breaks to allow him some air if needed. The summer months often mean outdoor time during family gatherings, barbecues and other social events.
Dressing your newborn requires more than a keen sense of baby fashion. Your baby's safety and health play a role in the clothing you choose in the summer since the heat might lead to overheating if she is wearing too many clothes.
The sun's rays hitting her skin directly increase her risk for sunburn and skin damage. A balance of coverage and cool clothing keeps her content and safe during summer. Dress your newborn in a base layer of a cotton onesie, which is a T-shirt with snaps that fasten between the legs to hold it in place.
Choose light colors to keep your baby cooler if he goes outdoors. The onesie allows you to add layers or take them off as necessary with the onesie still providing coverage. Add a pair of shorts, a skirt or a pair of lightweight pants over the onesie. Choosing a short item to go on bottom allows your newborn's legs to stay cooler, especially when she goes outdoors. For a girl, a newborn sundress can replace the onesie and bottom combination.
Dress your newborn in additional layers, such as a lightweight sleeper or long sleeved shirt if he is indoors in a cool, air-conditioned room. Feel his hands and feet periodically to ensure they aren't chilly. Add socks if his feet get cold indoors.
