When did you buy it?

When (if you did) did you buy a "going home outfit" for the baby when going home from the hospital??

  • I have already bought my son's outfit. He is due in Jan and I live in a state that has very cold winters. Needless to say I forwent cute and looked more towards comfort and warmth. He is coming home in a fleece sleeper that I found.

  • I bought a pant and kimono-style shirt set at Baby Gap in both pink and blue, plus a little stocking hat to match each, for my August baby. I donated the pink one to the hospital, since I ended up having a boy. :) I bought them a month ahead of time, but would have bought it a lot sooner had I been able to find something I liked to work for both.

    Oh, and it seems that most going home outfits are HUGE on the babies they're put on. The outfits I got were for babies up to 7 pounds, so I was bummed when my guy ended up being over 9...but it still fit just fine!

  • I bought an outfit for my girl the week before my ultrasound to find out her sex. I was just SO excited, and KNEW I was having a girl, and also bought it for good luck. It was my first clothing purchase based on sex. But I have my outfit that I went home from the hospital in, and I'm thinking about letting her wear it if she fits!
