The Day-1-Baby Heirloom Layette

Made from finest New Zealand merino wool!

In my opinion: 
Best clothing for a brand new just-born Baby… ever!!

For decades I have needed to educate parents-to-be about the enormous mismatch between the size of a just-born Newborn, and the size of Newborn clothing. There is HUGE misunderstanding out there. The clothing size Newborn or 0000 is designed to supposedly fit 0-3 month olds.

However, in my experience
 it generally averagely fits 6-week-old babies (ie, after a newborn has gained 1.5-2.0kg from birth). 
That means that Newborn-size clothing is massive on newly born Babes, who typically only weigh 3.5kg. It is equivalent to a 120lb woman wearing clothing designed to fit 180lb woman!
And if there is one thing a brand new baby does not need, is loose fitting clothing, because it won’t keep them warm enough. Also, ALL brand new babies are best in woolen clothing … but man oh man, there is some nasty cheap woolen clothing available for newborns that is scratchy and loses its shape after the first wash.

I want to introduce you to my most favourite of products!

The Day-1-Baby Heirloom Layette
