You’ll be spoilt for choice when it comes to choosing clothes for your newborn. All-in-one rompers made from soft cotton are the most practical option, and most are available in lots of prints and colours. For girls, think ditsy prints and cute headbands, whilst dungarees are brilliant for little boys. If you’re looking for a gift for a new arrival, try gender-neutral grey, yellow or green.
