No hospital bag would be complete without a multipack of babygrows for your newborn. These Twins Unisex Baby Bodysuits are ideal for baby’s first days. They are made from high quality 100% cotton and are machine washable. We also love the YKK-button crotch which makes for fast, fuss-free, comfortable nappy changing for you and your little one.
