The big day is approaching – baby’s first Christmas! You want your baby to look cute, which means you need to find the perfect outfit. One that makes you go awwww as soon as you see it and means your little one will be the star of Christmas photos.
Choosing the right outfit is hard, because there’s so many options and they’re all stinking cute. Do you want to go formal? Classic Christmas? Loud and proud frilly? Costumey?
Depending on how old your baby is, you’ll also want to consider comfort and ease of diaper changes!

Are you planning a Christmas Eve box or want to start a family pyjama tradition? While your baby may be too young for a matching pyjama set, it’s never too early to wear Christmas PJs… unless you start in say July.
These pyjamas are perfect for lounging around the house on snowy December days and enjoying Christmas morning with the family.
