If you have a Prem baby our beautifully designed gown is made from soft, warm merino which makes it an ideal choice for your brand new baby. It really is the perfect start before you begin to think about sleeping bags or blankets and it's a great item to pack in your hospital overnight bag.
The Prem gown is made with the same design and attention to detail as our standard size gown set - just sized to fit a PREM baby:
Our envelope neck is designed for easy fit and our generous length will allow for plenty of kick room. With a drawstring at the bottom to allow for easy access at nappy changes, night times will be so much easier for mum and dad. And as with all our Baby Caterpillar garments our night-gowns are machine washable and able to be tumble dried (on a cool setting). Click here for more help with caring for merino.
SUMMER weight (150-165grms) - This is equivalent to wearing COTTON, but with all the cooling benefits and the lightness of merino. Wear this during the hottest months of the year with a single layer of merino and nappy underneath. OR, this option is also ideal if you like to layer, for example in Spring and Autumn you would add a merino singlet or bodysuit underneath the drawstring gown or sleepsuit underneath, and then even have the option of adding a blanket over top.
STANDARD weight (170-190grms) - This is our all-year-round 365 days of the year merino. This is perfect for wearing without the need for extra layers. So you would ideally wear a drawstring gown or sleepsuit against newborn skin, and then the wrap over the top and you're done.
WINTER weight (200-230grms) - The ultimate in softness and warmth. Wear this weight in Autumn, Winter and Spring, with clothing alternations underneath, but it might be a little warm for the heat of Summer. This is also ideal if you have a prem baby with low body weight or an extra cool house. Wear it with merino drawstring gowns or sleepsuits, and add singlets and bodysuits as required. Make sure whatever you wear against the skin is merino.
