Ah. Some hospitals may have that policy because you know a baby in hospital clothes hasn't been discharged. I could see that.

Re: Clothes for baby at the hospital?

Our hospital provides NO clothing for baby. Baby gets two receiving blankets and a hat. Parents must bring clothing. I brought onesies, gowns and "sleep n' play" type outfits for DD. This time I'm packing onesies and gowns because they were easier, IMO.

Re: Clothes for baby at the hospital?

Our hospital has plenty of newborn sleepers and receiving blankets. We can just use those, though I'm not a huge fan. Often my girls were dressed in blue, or the sleepers were kind of rough from being washed so many times... and the laundry detergent isn't exactly gentle in a hospital! So we'll see what happens this time. There is no policy stating you can or cannot bring your own clothes for baby.

Re: Clothes for baby at the hospital?

As long as the babe isn't in the NICU, and is rooming in with you, there shouldn't be any issues. I won't lie, Nico has a huge bag packed, all organized in zip lock bags as to shirts, onsies, socks, hats, matching outfits and so on. My OCD got the better of me, LOL. Plus, I am bringing Preemie, NB, and a few 0-3mnth sizes to be safe. Aaannnnddd....My older kiddos are absolutely slobbering to see him in all the items they picked out for him...

My hospital recommends hospital clothes because of washing, but other than that babies in-room can wear anything.

We were told we could dress them however we wanted as long as their temp stayed up. NB clothing is normally big on my kids so we never dress them until we go home. They spend half the day naked on me (under a swaddle) anyway

Re: Clothes for baby at the hospital?

I could see that, like the pp's mentioned, if baby was in the NICU. They'd definitely need access to baby, possibly very quickly in an emergency, so they wouldn't want full dress and swaddled.
But for a normal birth and baby in with mom, there shouldn't be any problem with normal clothes.

Our hospital does have some sleepers and whatnot for babies, but they're more for those who don't have anything. Everyone is asked to bring along clothes and blankets for baby.

Ours said we could. When we took the birthing unit tour we were told we could if we wanted to. I didn't put DS in anything we brought, but our stay wasn't the best experience. I'm contemplating bringing a few tees for dd on the way this time around.

I just don't like tees because it seems like they're always pushed up around their armpits from wiggling around. So I was always partial to something that kept the tops pulled down - onesies or sleepers.

Just me though
