Cute and Comfy Going Home Outfits For New Moms

After all the planning you’ve done and all of the excitement that you’ve been building up for the last nine months, it’s finally time to take your new bundle of joy home! 

While you’re packing your bags for your hospital stay and checking off all of the essentials you’ll need to welcome your baby into the world, don’t forget to include a comfortable and functional going-home outfit for yourself as well. It might be one of the last things on your mind, but being prepared will help make the transition from the hospital to your home more seamless for both yourself and your baby. Read on for inspiration on planning your going-home outfit, plus some of the cutest and comfiest options by Dreamiere. 

Tips for choosing your going-home outfits

Comfort comes first!

After the joy of bringing a new life into the world and spending time in the hospital, your comfort is going to be essential for a seamless ride home. While the ideal going-home outfit is anything that you feel comfy in, packing loose outfits in breathable fabrics is an especially good idea. Look for features like elastic waistbands and drawstring ties so that you can adjust according to your post-partum needs. Pajamas and loungewear are especially good choices for going-home outfits if they are relatively loose-fitting and moisture-wicking to prevent unnecessary irritation and rubbing.

    Functional fits are the best.

    Since you’ll have your new bundle of joy in tow, functionality will be key especially if you’re setting off on a particularly long journey from the hospital to your home. Look for functional, nursing-friendly features like tops with snap closures to make the ride and your first few hours at home a little easier. 

      Consider choosing a matching Mommy & Me option.

      Matching outfits with your little one is a sweet way to establish your bond from the get-go (and get some great going-home pics in the process). Dreamiere has plenty of matching outfits that are suitable for everyone in your family including your newborn. Click here to see some adorable matching Mommy & Me outfits from Dreamiere. 

        Pack with the weather in mind.

        It’s always a good idea to pack some layers — not just for inclement weather on your trip home, but for drafty hospital rooms as well. Plan outfits with plenty of layers for colder weather and air-conditioned hospital rooms. Meanwhile, if you’re planning on taking your baby home during the hotter summer months, choose fabrics like bamboo that are breathable and moisture-wicking. 

          Stay prepared with blankets.

          Having a couple of blankets on hand can also come in handy during your hospital stay and the ride home. Dreamiere’s Adult Blankets are made with the same cooling, moisture-wicking bamboo fabric as our pajamas so you can stay warm and cozy without overheating. They also come in tons of patterns so you can match your PJs and going-home outfits. 

            Don’t forget your footwear.

            Finally, you’ll want to make sure that you have some supportive shoes to round out your outfit. Look for comfy shoes and slippers with slip-on options, supportive footbeds, and plush comfort so that your feet aren’t pinched or pressured during your ride home.
