Did you ever dress your infant in jean-like materials?

Posted by Anonymous   + Show Post

I only dress my son in cotton type material. I just feel like harder fabric would be uncomfortable. He's 8 months old. Do you think this is trashy? This woman said that after 6 months they should always be in pants and that cotton was trashy.

I always had him in cotton onesies. They were practical and comfy. Now that he's 1 he does wear jeans a lot.

cotton is not trashy, what an odd thing to say!  Yes I dress my little one in denim once in awhile but I also like to stick w/ the softer cotton for the most part.

I don't think it is trashy. Your kid, your choice. My DS wears jeans, but I always make sure that his jeans are pretty soft. He even has some fleece-lined jeans for winter. He had some last winter too, when he was tiny little guy. I feel like they keep him nice and warm, but he looks good.

What woman?
Trashy is not the fabric, its the fit and how worn or stained it is.

I think after 1 year it's tacky. I hate seeing children walking around in cotton sets.

I was always raised the opposite of what that woman said. Babies should be in soft baby clothes :)

Quoting nataliesmom2012:

 I wouldn't say that's trashy at all. What's wrong with cotton? But to answer your first question, yes I do dress DD in jean material. She has a cute little denim jumper dress that she wears and she has two pairs of jeans and a pair of jean shorts that she wears. She's also 8 months old.

Awww. I didn't think there was anything wrong but she acted like they aren't actually dressed if they don't have on real pants. I have had quite a few overalls and jeans for my son by the all constrict him really bad. He's pretty long and he couldnt even pull his legs up when he was crawling.


I think they are soo cute though.
