An essential part of any newborn's wardrobe, this hat & booties set will see you through your first 12-weeks. So adorable and perfect to finish off any outfit. Have you checked out our fitted wraps or gown sets which are perfect for any newborn baby.
Let's be honest babies in booties are oh-so-cute. Not only do our booties look sweet and adorable, but you get the extra layer of added warmth. 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.
Merino should be used for all newborn babies 365 days of the year for night-time sleeping. In fact on those warmer nights, it works BETTER than cotton to help regulate temperature and keep your newborn baby cool. Newborn babies can not regulate temperature for around 12 weeks of life - this means they might be cold even when it's hot in the house. So it is really important to use merino against the skin so the merino garment can do the job for them.
Merino will draw the moisture away from your newborn delicate skin when warm and then as the temperature drops (between 3-5am) the merino will push the warmth back into the skin - so they don't wake up because they are cold. If merino hadn't been invented by nature, you'd be forgiven for thinking it was invented by magic.
This Pure Merino babywear is exclusively available online and just like all our Baby Caterpillar products, is made to machine washable on a wool cycle, using a wool approved detergent.
