You want to jump right into it, right?
Well, before we get right to the nitty gritty recommendations, let me guess how you landed here. You're adding to your baby registry, and maybe you googled something like...
"How Should I Dress My Baby For Boston Weather?"
It's such a big question! But you've come to the right place.
I'm Jess, and I've been a baby photographer here in the Boston area for a long time. I teamed up with local boutique-owner Jodi Tormey, and we wrote
--> a 16 page resource guide <--
for you to answer exactly this question.
The resource guide is chock full of specifics. We've got:
--> clothing ideas for the first six months (i.e. how many onesies will we really need?)
--> brands we’re loving
--> due-date specific recommendations for what you'll need
--> and links to so many local Boston boutiques…
Here’s what it looks like. Isn’t it so pretty?
I understand if you don't want to download the whole thing right now, so I'll break it up into bite-size chunks for you.
Oh, wait, you *do* want to download the whole thing?
We wrote it especially for the members of my Boston Baby Photos "Year One Together" VIP Group on Facebook - and it's hosted there. I'd love to have you come join us in there! I interview local baby experts every week live in the group, and I have lots of resources and connections in the area. If you live in Boston and you're expecting a baby or you have a baby under a year, I'd love it if you'd join the group here.
But I digress. (As usual, sorry.)
Let’s just open it to any random page of the Dressing Your Baby for Boston Weather Resource Guide.
OK. Page 5.
Awww. Look at that sweet boy, I remember that photoshoot. Cutie pie.
Sorry, got distracted by the cute chubby baby.
Take it away, Jodi!
Pajama Brands We Love
The brand of pajamas (sometimes called footie pjs) I’m loving right now is Little Sleepies, which are made from bamboo viscose – a naturally hypoallergenic, antibacterial fabric that regulates body temperature.
Their zippered rompers (Zippers make it SO quick and easy to dress baby) have foldover cuffs on the hands and feet.
Although they are not a true “footie,” these fold-over cuffs actually give you the ability to expose the feet and give those tiny toes some kisses. Plus, they have super cute matching PJs for mom, dad, and siblings.
Here's all the brands of footie pajamas we're loving right now:
Also, Magnetic Me produces select 100% organic styles that have magnetic closure, which is perhaps the smartest invention I wish I thought of.
Do invest in at least one Magnetic Me footie to try it out. Your mind will be blown!
The only problem I see is that babies can't suck their toes when they're wearing footie PJs. Aw, the trials and tribulations of being a baby who lives in the Boston area.
That’s it for today’s tiny snippit from my Dressing Your Baby For Boston Weather Resource Guide. It's really chock full of good stuff.
Want to read/download it all?
I'd love to give it to you. Come join us in my Boston Baby Photos VIP Facebook Group - that's where you can download the whole thing. My group is new, and it's called Year One Together. It's a group for new parents who are getting excited about or already navigating their baby's first year here in the Boston area. I interview local experts in all things baby every Friday, and then those interviews are saved in the group archive so you can watch them anytime. Topics the experts are covering in their interviews with me will include: "Do I want a Doula? A Midwife?", "Buying a First Home around Boston", "Postpartum: The Emotional Side", "Year One With Twins - Ideas That Might Help"... and so much more.
Hope to see you in there!
I'm Jessica McDaniel, and May 2021 will mark my 18th anniversary photographing babies and their families all around Boston.
