What did you...

What did you dress your child up in for the new born pictures at the hospital? For the ones with girls, did you put her in a dress?

  • We didn't get prof. hospital pics. But we took our own and had her in a cute purple little sleeper.

  • For my first I just did a sleeper, for my other 3 girls I used the same outfit. It's floral, light colors, mostly pinks, kinda jumper outfit. For my son, just a little boy outfit.

  • Oiiii. That was a disaster. See, I had an adorable outfit for her, complete with tights and everything. But while I was waiting for the photographer to come, she pooped and peed and I didn't have time to get the outfit on her. I ended up putting her in a sleep sack. The pictures turned out great, but I would've liked the other outfit for her : /

  • We didn't get ours done at the hospital. We waited until she was 4 weeks and took her to Sears. We had 3 differnt outfits (a dress, tights w/ cute top and summer outfit).

  • If you can even think about doing tights, buttons, etc, within a couple days of giving birth, I would be amazed. Tights would be a bad idea because of the unbilical stump anyway. Do yourself a favor, make it easy and find a cute sleep sack or something easy. There is plenty of time for fancy pictures later. Besides, everyone will just be looking to see which one of you she looks like, not at what she's wearing :)
