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.

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.
