So why do you need this set:

Our beautifully designed gown is made from soft, warm merino and perfect for your brand new baby. It is the perfect start before you begin to think about sleeping bags or blankets and it's a great item to pack in your hospital overnight bag. 

Our envelope neck is designed for easy fit and our generous length will allow for plenty of kick room or for those extra tall babies. With a drawstring at the bottom to allow for easy access at nappy changes, night times will be so much easier for mum and dad. And as with all our Baby Caterpillar garments our night-gowns are machine washable and able to be tumble dried (on a cool setting)

BEANIE DESIGN:

Our knotted beanies will generally fit from newborn to approx 3/4 months old and are designed to fit, so they don't fall down over babies eyes.  Simply tie the knot to fit your baby's head and adjust the knot as they grow.   The knotted hat are perfect for daytime strolling and all out and about activities - just make sure you don't sleep your baby overnight in a hat (as they may overheat).

BOOTIE DESIGN:

Our newborn booties are extremely warm and comfortable, and an essential for any little one. They are designed to be worn alone or with socks underneath, these booties can be worn at home or out and about.  They are perfect for layering and because they are made by Baby Caterpillar, you know they have been sized a little bit bigger, so you can get more wear out of them - and they are oh-so-cute.

Which merino is right for you?

SUMMER weight (150-165grms) - This is equivalent to wearing COTTON, but with all the cooling benefits and the lightness of merino.  Wear this during the hottest months of the year with a single layer of merino and nappy underneath.  OR, this option is also ideal if you like to layer, for example in Spring and Autumn you would add a merino singlet or bodysuit underneath the drawstring gown or sleepsuit underneath, and then even have the option of adding a blanket over top.  

STANDARD weight (170-190grms) - This is our all-year-round 365 days of the year merino.  This is perfect for wearing without the need for extra layers.  So you would ideally wear a drawstring gown or sleepsuit against newborn skin, and then the wrap over the top and you're done. 

WINTER weight (200-230grms) - The ultimate in softness and warmth.  Wear this weight in Autumn, Winter and Spring, with clothing alternations underneath, but it might be a little warm for the heat of Summer.  This is also ideal if you have a prem baby with low body weight or an extra cool house.  Wear it with merino drawstring gowns or sleepsuits, and add singlets and bodysuits as required.  Make sure whatever you wear against the skin is merino.
