Baby clothes may be tiny, but what they lack in surface area they make up for in volume when amassed in bulk. For mamas who live in smaller spaces, having your baby’s wardrobe take over your house is less than ideal, especially since they outgrow things so quickly. But when building your registry, there are ways to choose versatile items you can get multiples uses out of (read: No need to replenish your supply every three months), and we’ve compiled some of our absolute favorites for you below.

Tenth & Pine
Happy Camper Organic Long Sleeve Body Suit
Apart from the adorable moniker printed on the front, we love this organic cotton short-sleeved bodysuit by Tenth & Pine because of its versatility. It’s neutral in color, making it easy to coordinate with other pieces, has an easy snap closure and a lap neck for changing ease.
Tippy Tot Shoes
A good pair of booties can be paired with a variety of everyday looks—they’re really the only shoes your infant needs. These suede crib shoes by Tippy Tot are as cute as they come. With a breathable lining and lightly cushioned foot bed, these moccasins are a photo-worthy part of your little one’s looks.
Yinibini The Owlets One-Piece
These baby owl-emblazoned organic cotton onesies by Yini Bini are a versatile pick for your little owlet. Screen printed with non-toxic fabric paint and heat set so they’re wash-friendly, these neutral-colored onesies are a win for baby girls or boys.
Janie and Jack
Strawberry Button Romper
Apart from the fact that we would wear this if it came in adult sizes, this romper is a favorite because it works hard in your baby’s wardrobe. With a fairly gender neutral appearance and easily layered construction, this space-efficient special occasion piece is just darling.
Just One You 3-Pk Long Sleeve Bodysuit
A trio (or two) of well-made white bodysuits are the utility staples your baby’s wardrobe needs, be it on their own (because even newborns can’t get fancy every day) or as a base layer for a larger look. Basics are important, and these simple onesies are a must.
Baby 2-Piece Sweatshirt Set
Two-piece sets are a staple of baby wardrobes—they make diaper changes so easy! The upside of dressing your little one in separates is that if one item gets dirty, you can just swap it out without changing the entire outfit. This saves you a little on laundry volume, and what mama can’t get behind that?
teat & cosset
Matching (multi-purpose!) Sweatshirt
Flattering, functional + lightweight! Hidden zippers for easy nursing and/or pumping. The perfect top for your workout, yoga class, or stroll with baby; this staple works for all three trimesters, breastfeeding and beyond!.
