Over the past five years, I have given birth to four children (yes, my hands are full). I have learned a lot while raising my little tribe of misfits 😜, and I feel quite confident in my abilities to build a comprehensive wardrobe for a newborn.

With that said, one of my absolute favorite pieces for a baby is the Sleep & Play (also known as a footed 1-piece and very similar yet not identical to footed pajamas). They are so easy and versatile, as they work for both daytime and bedtime (hence the name). I have been through my fair share of brands, styles, and fabrics, and I definitely have my favorites! The best part about Sleep & Plays, you ask?

No.👏 Lost.👏 Socks.👏

If you are having a baby or know someone who is having a baby in the near future, I highly suggest you get your hands on a few of these for yourself or for the mother-to-be. They are without a doubt my number one wardrobe staple for baby. Below you will find some of my top choices organized by category, and at the end of this post I will share my all-around favorite Sleep & Play.

Magnolia Baby

 Yes, you read that right. Chip & Joanna have a line of baby clothes, because Of. Course. They. Do. And I am obsessed. These pieces are sweet, Southern, and classic.

 

Overall Favorite

This footed one-piece from Old Navy is my absolute favorite for a few reasons. For starters, the fabric is incredibly soft. The sleeves also fold over at the wrist to form mitts around the hands, which is so helpful with a newborn. The mitts protect their faces from scratches and they can’t fall off like other baby mitts do. Best of all, Old Navy’s footed one-piece is zip up, which is crucial when changing a fussy baby during the middle of the night.

Valentine’s Day Lookbook 2019

Valentine’s Day is about a month away, which means it’s time to start shopping for an outfit for the big day. Although I am personally not a huge fan of the holiday & my husband and I usually skip out on the forced romance of it all, my kids love it. Probably has something to do with all of the candy they get to eat! #duh

I have to admit that Valentine’s Day is more enjoyable now that I have kids, but isn’t every holiday?!? And would I really be doing my job as a parent if I didn’t drench them in head to toe hearts for their classroom parties? The answer is no, I would not.

Below are some of my top picks for this year. My advice is to shop early before the inventory is low and you are left with a less than stellar choice. Been there, done that (sorry kids)!

Happy Shopping!

 Gap

I love Gap because they frequently have sales (oftentimes up to 40% off). I rarely purchase anything at Gap for full price. If you would like sale alerts, be sure to sign up for our newsletter.

This is my all around favorite Valentine’s Day outfit for a baby. 

The perfect set to coordinate sisters. I would pair the onesie with these ruffle trim leggings to keep baby warm.

A practical choice for your little one. 

Old Navy

Like Gap, Old Navy always has a sale of some sort going on. I like Old Navy when I am looking for something cute & affordable.

This dress is perfect for a party or the playground! You can find the matching shoes here.

All of the pieces below were selected to be a complete outfit. At the time of publishing, the ENTIRE outfit cost less than $20! 

Janie and Jack 

Although not always practical, Janie and Jack never disappoints in the ultra-adorable department.

 These pieces are all the heart eyes! 😍😍😍 Pair with some red Mary Janes and it’s amore!

A daintier version of the Gap footed 1-piece. I love the sweet, girly details. 

I’d describe this dress as “sporty chic.” Pair with these socks and these white shoes (less expensive option here) for a winning combination. It comes in sizes 3M-12Y, so it is also a great option if you like to dress your daughters alike. #twinning

I love the quilted heart pattern on this matching set. If Don Draper had a baby girl, she would most certainly wear this outfit on Valentine’s Day. 

Boutique Selections

Because sometimes it’s fun to shop off the beaten path.

This is a more low-key V-day look that will work for spring and summer, too. I love the ruffled leggings to keep your girl warm during the cold winter months.

  

How cute is this smocked dress? I’d pair with a big red bow to complete the look.

etc.

A girl can never have too many accessories, amiright? I’m also including two options for the boys in your life.
