Do you dress your baby like a little doll?

I love to put cute clothes on my daughter, buy her cute shoes, and do her hair in pretty bows. I want people to think I take good care of her. If she gets a stain on anything, I change her right away. Anyone else like me? By the way, it doesn't cost a lot to make your baby look good. Even Wal-Mart has cute styles for cheap. I even buy her stuff from thrift stores.

  • I make sure my kids are clean and well dressed. They have nice looking clothes and they always look well taken care of. I don't intend to make them look like dolls, but I do make sure they look presentable.

  • yessss. I had a son 1st, so it was even worse. She had a million bows, dresses, hair things, etc

    I also bought a "jingle baby" anklet for her.
    She was always pink and perfect as a baby.... now at 3 she is even worse, lol.
    Little girls are a direct reflection of us, right?

    the outfit she came home from the hospital in was a hand stitched tulle baby ballerina dress.... and the nurses all wanted a picture with her

    As awful as it sounds I think ugly children can be fixed with the right hair and clothes.

  • I like my son to be well-dressed and clean when we go out. It drives my fiance nuts. I will even dampen his hair, comb it through, and put detangler mixed with some natural-based hair gel in his hair. He has defiant curly hair like I do... and I refuse to cut it. It's a huge plus if I can find clothes that are unique. Like a doll? I don't know. But he always looks good.

    I think it's because I used to spend hours on myself before stepping out of the house... now I can't. It has been cut down to 15 minutes tops. So while I may not be as styling as I used to be, my son has taken my place.

    When he was an infant, I hated anything baby blue and cutesy. He wore a lot of green, and even blacks. Had a small faux mohawk. It was fun. :)

    Have fun with your little mini me!
