Layette commonly refers to baby clothes purchased for a newborn baby.
Many stores also include linen, accessories and baby care items in their ‘layette’ section and gift sets.
Layette items are usually essential, basic items such as sleepsuits, bodysuits, bibs, blankets, bedding, t shirts, towels, wash cloths, nappies, socks, hats, mittens and vests… basically everything the new parents need in the early weeks and months of parenthood.
