Dressing children can be a bit of a pain sometimes. It can be awkward keeping them warm and comfortable while still making sure their clothes allow them enough freedom to play and kick around! Here at Littlewoods we’re always thinking of ways to keep mum and dad in pocket and the little ones in some stylish outfits: so here’s our pick of baby and toddler essentials!
Newborn babies require a lot of attention and their temperature needs to be regulated carefully. These little Mamas & Papas Bodysuits are easy to put on and feature nickel free button poppers for simple undressing at bathtime. The all-in-one design means that they won’t get too hot from their legs or arms being covered. The pack of seven suits offers great value for money and come in both boys and girls colourways – a collection of fab fruity spots and stripes for the Girls Bodysuits, and a nautical colourway with t-shirt style logos for the Boys Bodysuits.
For slightly older babies, Ladybird has a great range of sleepsuits that are ideal for providing freedom of movement but comfy, secure clothing that won’t move about too much in the night. For the lads, this pack of three Ladybird Sleepsuits in cute skull print, grey marl and bright stripes will keep them looking super cool. Our favourite for the lasses is the Ladybird Rose Print Sleepsuits. The beautiful rose print patterns in shades of delicate pinks, combined with a basic suit in pink stripes, make for an adorable outfit with a ‘shabby chic’ feel.
An essential item for little ones is a garment suitable for outdoor use in warmer weathers, or as a layer under a coat when it gets chilly. This Ladybird Boys Cardigan is super-fashionable with its Nordic-inspired pattern of white reindeer on a baby blue background; the full jersey lining also means it’s extra cuddly and great for keeping the little adventurer warm. Our pick for the girls is a cute, fluffy Ladybird Fleece Jacket in a fabulous pink colour! With adorable ears and patch pockets, this is a fun but stylish way to keep them toasty when exploring outdoors.
One last wardrobe essential is an outfit that will work successfully at parties or other formal events, but won’t be too stuffy. Two and three piece sets offer great value and an easy way to keep the kids looking smart: the pieces can also be worn separately so increase the use you’re likely to get from them. We love this versatile Ladybird Two-piece Set in red, white and black for little girls – the sweet bow detail and ruffles keep it girly, while the spotty leggings are practical and cute. Boys will look top dollar in this Ladybird Three-piece Set, featuring a jersey cardigan with sporty details, quirky t-shirt, and hard-wearing pull on trousers. Smart, sweet, and still practical enough for play!
