MUST HAVE - KNOTTED POD COMING HOME OUTFIT
Bringing your newborn home from the hospital can be both the best feeling and the most overwhelming, especially if you’re a first-time parent. For these moments, comforting your baby in a comfortable homecoming outfit is the key.
That’s why we recommend a KNOTTED POD for your newborn’s first outfit. This classic one-piece has been beloved by generations of new parents for good reason. The easy-tie bottom closure makes diaper changes a breeze. And the traditional gown style is wonderful for temperature control, as the bottom opening is easily adjustable so your little one feels snug and cozy without overheating.
In addition to these benefits, there is just something magical about the timeless look of an adorable newborn in a soft, knotted gown. Be sure to take lots of pictures of your baby in this sweet and simple outfit—you’ll treasure them in the years to come!
REASONS WHY KNOTTED PODS ARE PERFECT COMING HOME OUTFITS?REASON #1: KNOTTED PODS ARE PRACTICAL AND FUNCTIONAL
During the first few months of having a new baby, new parents appreciate those practical items that make life a little easier. Knotted Pods are at the top of the list of favorite outfits to take babies home, because they’re so wonderfully functional.
No matter the time of day, a knotted baby gown is super easy to get on and off, thanks to NO snaps, or zippers at the bottom. Not only is the fabric closure soft and cozy next to your baby’s skin, but it’s also fast and easy to unwrap for a speedy easy diaper change. After all, you’ll be doing a lot of them!
REASON #2: STYLISH SIMPLICITY THAT CAN'T BEAT
Full outfits tend to look extra-large and out of place on a small infant. Plus, it can be hard to guess proper sizing before birth.
During the first few months (or especially days), little ones can look like they’re swimming in other newborn clothing. But the classic baby gown can be adjusted for a perfect fit as your baby grows.
The simple, traditional style of a knotted pod on a newborn always looks charming. Plus, you can also pair a gown with super-cute newborn accessories. Coordinating knit beanies look precious while keeping little heads warm and cozy. For easy, picture-perfect style, add a chic bow headband (soft and stretchy ones are best for newborns).
And, of course, it’s fun to mix and match your baby’s pods with a stretchy swaddle or blanket.
REASON #3: STRETCHY AND SAFE COMFORT
We love how baby gowns provide the snug, cozy feel that newborns crave without being too restrictive, thanks to the sack style design. The best gowns are also stretchy enough for infants to wiggle and move, which is essential for their development in their first months. Another reason we prefer fabric made with elastane is because the fibers are stretchy, so your baby will have plenty of wiggle room.
During this time, it’s also important to remember that your newborn’s umbilical cord stump can become irritated. It usually takes between 1 to 3 weeks after birth for the stump to dry out and fall off. And because the skin in the belly area can be sensitive even after the stump falls off, selecting breathable materials that are naturally hypoallergenic is best.
Fold-over mittens are another feature of knotted baby gowns that add a measure of comfort and safety new parents appreciate. The newborn sizes in our baby gown collection (0-3 months and 3-6 months) include soft, built-in mittens to keep those tiny hands extra-warm and prevent scratches. While it’s good to let infants stretch and move their hands throughout the day, when they’re sleeping, the soft fold over cuffs can protect them from self-scratching. Even if you regularly smooth and trim those little nails, they can surprise you with how fast they grow!
