I have already got 2 girls, Makenna and Eden and I took a 2 little outfits and hair slides for them when they was born and going home. But with our baby boy coming this December, we need to plan! I have totally forgot what sort of clothes I took for Makenna or Eden, so can somebody tell me what type of clothing would be suitable, and what else I may need.
I have all types of clothing for him so fire away with comments:)

I would honestly just bring a little sleeper. Its going to be cold and you guys will probably just be driving from the hospital to home, right? If you want to "dress him up" i would put a long sleeve onesie, pants, socks, and a litttle hat. 'But like i said if it was me i would probably put him in a sleeper and a hat and wait until you get home and stuff to dress him up in cute little outfits.
Good luck and congrats! :D

I had sleepers for laying around in the hospital. My oldest went home in a cute little onesie, and my youngest went home in a simple t-shirt and pants combo with a bow. This baby's going home in a mossy oak camo onesie and booties.

I just hate not being able to put them in a carseat with a coat. :( My daughter was born in November so i put her in a little sister sleeper, put a bow in her hair, and put a blanket on her after we buckled her in the carseat!

Don't leave the coat on him when he's in the carseat, it can mess with the proper fitting of the straps. Make sure you bring a nice warm blanket to put over his car seat in the car :)

I was thinking this with the coats, but the coat I am taking is thin material, so hopefully he will strap in his car seat! If not I will wrap him in a blanket!
