Here at George, we always look forward to springtime! The days get longer (and warmer – we hope!), flowers begin to blossom and bees start doing what they do best!
As much as we can’t wait to get outside and enjoy the wonderful weather, we know transitioning your little one’s wardrobe for spring can be daunting – especially for new parents.
We’ve put together a few helpful ideas to get you started including the most adorable baby clothes and handy baby accessories.
What Should A Baby Wear In A Pram In Spring?
For newborns and little one’s who will be zoomin’ around in a pram this spring, choosing an outfit they would usually wear indoors is a good place to start.
Adding a thin outer layer like a cardigan or light jacket, a pair of knitted mittens, and little socks (aww!) will keep them at a comfortable temperature during the day.
If you’re lucky enough for the sun to come out and say hello, a pram parasol will protect your baby from friendly rays of sunshine and our latest collection of pushchairs is packed with tons of great quality designs for you to explore.
Since we never quite know what the weather has in store, always carry a baby blanket with you, so you can tuck them up if it gets chilly.
Make The Most Of Existing Baby Clothes
With the shift in temperature, it can be tempting to refresh your baby’s entire wardrobe. Hold up – it’s likely your baby’s lil collection is already packed with plenty of pieces that’ll double-up for spring – more money for ice cream!
Perfect for popping under their little look, baby vests will slip seamlessly into their collection. Pastel shades and easy-wear neutrals are lovely choices for spring.
Other mini essentials like socks and tights will keep tiny toes toasty and we have THE cutest baby girls shoes and baby boys shoes, perfect for little one’s who might just be ready to take their first steps outdoors!
Get Smart With Layers
Knowing how many layers your baby needs in spring can be tricky, especially when the mornings can be nippy and afternoons get slightly warmer. Dress your tiny trooper in a baby bodysuit, choosing gentle materials like cotton, and layer with a long-sleeved shirt and trousers.
Our number one tip: follow the ‘plus one’ layering technique, in cooler temperatures your little bundle of joy generally needs one more layer than you and checking your baby’s skin and back of their neck will give you an indication of their temperature.
Springtime Essentials For Little Ones
Whatever the weather baby rompers AKA onesies make up a big part of any little wardrobe! You can find all the sweetest girls rompers and cool boys all in ones in our collection, making dressing your little one as easy as ABC!
You can switch up between short and long sleeve designs and onesies can be worn on their own or are super simple to layer up. Our unisex baby clothes collection features plenty of playful designs and fun prints in dreamy gender-neutral colours.
It’s also good idea to have about 5 or 6 pairs of shorts for warmer days out, a handful of shirts and a few jumpers for when it’s a bit chilly. Check out our baby essentials for must-have additions to your springtime collections and pieces you can easily mix and match.
Wrap Up Tiny Tots
Be prepared for a drop in temperature and layer up in cute baby boys cardigans, and baby girls jumpers. The weather in spring can often be unpredictable – boo to April showers!
Don’t let grey clouds dampen your day and prepare for rainy weather with super snug baby girls coats and baby boys coats. Remember…when it rains – look out for rainbows! On days when they don’t make an appearance, turn to our delightful collection of baby clothes decorated with rainbow patterns. Perfect for bringing colour-pop cheer to dreary days.
Stylish Spring Pieces For Babies
Spring is the perfect season to try cute new styles for your baby such as denim jackets or dungarees. We LOVE florals and you’ll find tons of charming baby girls dresses in gorgeous flowery prints – aw! The best part – mini accessories! A baby hat is a fab way to protect little heads from the suns UV rays and keep your baby cool – to the park we go!
With the spring in full swing, it’s time to ditch the greys and burst out bright shades and sweet pastels.
To bring new season energy to their little look all spring long, dress your baby in everything from baby blues and powder pinks to happy prints in vibrant colourways.
