  • My girls wore 2 of my dresses from when I was a baby but they were too big on them (they were under 5lbs) so it looked a bit silly, I also forgot to take onesies and such to the hospital so they were in those horrid shirts they give... I would so go back and do that over.

  • I spent about a year in Benin (West Africa) and fell in love with the people and the land. My husband and I would LOVE to take the kids there to visit. I had a little shirt made by one of the ladies in the village. Each of our kids has come home in that - our little African babies! I love that they all wear the same thing

  • I had about 5 outfits that I bought because I could not decide which one. Then the day I brought him home, I was so worried that I would break him by dressing him (first time Mom!) that I put him in feetie PJ's and a cardigan & that took me about 1/2 hour to do! So he wore his outfits a little later! LOL!

  • to be honest i didnt put too much effort lol there's so many cute baby clothes and at affordable prices ( depending where you go ) for boys and girls there's really no reason to stress over it or to overthink it. if anything the only thing i thought about while picking out my baby's outfit was the weather. Because my due date is in January i bought her a cute warm knitted outfit and a thinck jacket for her to be ready to come home in for them cold mornings or nights lol So it depends on what season your due date will be...i think that's how we should determine the outfit lol hope this helps! :-) **Take Care**

  • I searched HIGH AND LOW for the outfit I wanted him in.. - A SAINTS UNIFORM. took me a few weeks but i found one that he'd fit.

  • Lol I love the Saints uniform. I have a Falcons cheerleader outfit for her but its way too big. I have a knit sweater, cap, and booties outfit that someone at my gram's bingo hangout made for me. Under it I'll just put a white onesie and pink pants :)

  • I didn't have a choice. My son was 3 1/2 weeks early AND he was small for his gestational age too, so I had to get whatever fit. The clothes were so big on him! Poor guy...
