In brief: Close fitting

Make sure the baby's sleep clothes fit well and are approved as sleepwear..
.This usually means that they are made of special fire resistant materials. Avoid extremely loose clothes that may get tangled.

In brief: Temperature decides

The clothing should fit well, allow for movement, and be temperature appropriate.
Use your best judgement with layers, generally one layer more than what you are wearing to sleep.

In brief: A onesie!

Gosh if i knew the answer to this with my first baby, i would have saved a lot of money! babies don't need to be dressed up fancy in the first few months.
In fact, some baby clothes may be uncomfortable to newborns. A comfortable, cotton onesie is really all she needs to sleep in. If it is cool in the house, purchase one that covers the arms, legs and toes.
