Am I the only one who can’t wait to pick out Baby’s first outfit? I am seriously frugal when comes to any kind of shopping, baby clothing included, but when it comes to that very first outfit, for some reason, I just don’t care how much it is. It needs to be perfect. Even if he might spit up on it, poop on it, or something equally as messy. Why do I feel like this matters so much?
Anyway, I’ve rounded up a few of the top contenders right now (they seem to change weekly) to get some opinions. Which is your favorite?
The two piece: Sweet and simple. Kimono opening will help so I don’t have to pull something over my fragile new baby’s head. Footed pants will keep his little toes warm in the cold January air. Neutral color palette means I can use and reuse this outfit for other newborns in our future.
The navy footie: Ralph Lauren, so obviously I love it. Footed, so again, warm toes. The navy with the white piping is right up my alley. I am a little concerned about the collar. Will that be irritating to a little one who can’t hold up his own head yet?
The hooded striped: You obviously cannot go wrong with navy and white stripes in my book, but this is maybe my least favorite of the three. The hood may be extra annoying to the little guy, plus there we’d have to go with socks… which are cute as can be (mini-socks!) but I fear he will kick them right off.
I’m not sure if the winner is in this group or not… but this is definitely the road we’re going down… What do you think? Does it really matter what I bring him home in the hospital in?
