@iarebridezilla:  ..urpy kids are the WORST!  But I can tell you, they  always grow out of it….when she starts being a little more self contained, can do the rolling over and the sitting up all by her lonesome…the mechanism that keeps her from essentially being an open container of liquid, gets activated….and the urping…stops.

Don’t feel bad about it….I think every kid I raised lived in their jammies…I mean, since life at that age is just one long punctuated nap….why bother getting dressed at all?

Take pictures of her in some of the outfits…have a couple of dress up days and send them to some of the people who you know gave the outfits showing how cute she is in them.  For those couple of days, clean her up and put her in a new outfit after instead of pjs, and take another photo.  Then you might not feel as bad, you’ll have lots of cute pictures for a 3 month album and then donate them to someone who needs them.

Oh my god, she is so precious.  Those cheeks make my uterus clench with glee! ^.^

I don’t think it’s a bad thing to let her wear PJs all the time – after all, they’re comfy!  Maybe take on the challenge of putting her in one gifted outfit a day, take a photo, and then change her back into PJs as she spits up?  You can share those photos like thank you cards, LOL.

So, I don’t have a child, but I do work in fashion, and I really believe that clothes should not make anyone’s life WORSE.

In my opinion, having brand new unworn clothes that you wish had been used is better than having a bunch of stained, puked-on clothes that you have come to hate. Now you have these beautiful things that will make LOVELY gifts to friends, or donations to those who couldn’t afford them!

I’d say keep a couple for special occassions and don’t worry about the rest. Your baby is happy as long as she’s comfortable, so don’t beat yourself up over it!

@iarebridezilla:  poor thing. i think you should just let her wear the cute clothes. if she spits up, she spits up. toss them in the wash, and move on. baby clothes are meant to get dirty. just give up on the bibs, and let her wear the cute outfits.

@iarebridezilla:  First off, she’s gorgeous.

Secondly, what are the most comfortable items of clothing one can wear? Pajamas. I’m sure Audrey appreciates feeling comfy a lot more than she would if you dressed her up for the sole purpose of wearing “going out” clothes. Don’t worry about it. My nephew didn’t get a chance to wear any of his gifted baby clothes either. They were all donated with the tags still on them.

@colorofmyheart:  +1. I guess I don’t see the difference between pukey PJs and pukey cute clothes. It’s just as much work to change regardless of what you’re changing.

@iarebridezilla:  My daughter spits up a LOT, with a projectile vomit thrown in every once and a while for extra fun. I dress her in all her cute outfits, but put bibs on her. She ends up wearing 5 or 6 bibs a day. It’s just so much easier to change the bibs rather than entire outfits. This way I can see her in her cute outfits, take pictures, etc. They have bibs at walmart that are super cheap, huge, and with plastic lining on the inside so baby doesn’t get wet. They’re ugly, but I lurve them.

Here she is… bibs all day errday.
