How to dress an end of August beginning of September baby

I am due September 1st. But will have a scheduled c-section, so baby could come at the end of August. I live in Pennsylvania, and I'm not sure how to dress a end of summer beginning of fall baby. My first born was born in December so that was simple. I always read that you dress baby just how you would dress yourself. Which at that time of year would be a tank top and shorts, I always feel the baby would be cold wearing a t-shirt and shorts. Some help please :-)

get alittle bit of both, you can always put blankets or lil jackets over short sleeved outfits :)

OMG I had my daughter August 30th, and it was warm. casual two piece sets, like the infant jogging suits. Not the heavy material, your baby will have the onesies on anyway (which we know usually come short). In the end a blanket is a good standby. Your baby is going straight from the hospital, to the car, to the house, right? You will know what to do. This time around for me, it will probably be the beginning of August. Good luck!

I agree with the first post. Though sometimes the end of August beginning of September can be hot. Just prepared to have layers. Short and long sleeve onesies are great to have on hand anytime of year. If you get the really cute ones they can be worn alone or with a pair of pants if you run into a hot day. Get them a little big and have them on hand. Also, stock up on different warmths of blankets.

I was told when I had my son (end of July) that, whatever I wear, put an extra layer on him (but not an extra thick layer or anything). I would get long-sleeved onesies and pants and socks along with the short-sleeved onesies and shorts. Whatever you put her in, make sure to at least BRING the extra layers if you don't think she needs it right then. Follow your instincts, and you should do fine.
