Your layette list outlines every piece of clothing and swaddling clothes your baby will need for those first six weeks. You want your baby clothes to be simple, soft, and easy to put on and take off of your baby. You also don't want to do laundry every other day during those six weeks and this checklist takes that into consideration. When planning a layette, use this checklist to help you decide which items you want in your layette and stick to the quantities- you really don't want to do laundry every second day.
