These are truly the best merino long-sleeve onesies you will find. Soft, warm and beautifully designed to be worn against the skin underneath whatever you want.
Our classic merino long-sleeve onesies are sized perfectly to fit right from the start of life. They are a great one piece to use against your newborn skin, without adding bulky layers for the first few months of life. With strong nickel-free domes along the bottom, nappy changes are easy. Plus our onesies are simple to get on and off with the envelope neckline.
During the warmer months, they might be all you wear over the nappy, and then as the seasons change, you can use to layer as needed.

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.
