One for the buggy. One for snuggling. Yes you can use sleeping bags with newborns, except tiny premmie babies. Check the weight range on the label and make sure the baby can't wiggle down inside. You might need a couple of blankets for the crib, depending on how warm your house is.
I like handknitted and hand crocheted granny square blankets best. Very retro and made with love!!
thanks Cattleprod our house is relatively warm but was thinking of getting some cellular blankets in white and a granny style one sounds nice actually! Only I don't think the "Grannies" will be making any ;) I will ask my mum to make a canopy for the crib with crochet detailing (she's good at that) so maybe will convince her to make a blanket too
Thanks Handmini and joshandjamie ! Actually the baby hoodie seems like a good alternative to snow suits? I am thinking I probably might need one but I guess this could be useful when I am moving in and out of warm/cold temps?
The hoodie is also safer than a snowsuit as you shouldn't put babies in thick coats in car seats, something I didn't know. And you don't end up with a blanket dragging on the ground when used in a buggy. I'm a bit of a fan and buy them for all my new mum friends :-)
