@Nona99: 

You are not alone on this front.

Babies live in whatever clothing works …

Babies born in the colder months, tend to live in sleepers with or without feet (terry or fleece)

Babies born in the hot months, tend to live in just their diapers or a onesie (no sleeves / no legs)

So altho you have a lot of cute outfits I wouldn’t worry about it too much.  Do what works.

She’s cozy, she’s fed, she’s rested, she’s taken care… and most importantly SHE’S HAPPY

(Lol, if you have more babies… there will be a chance for someone else to wear the cute outfits…)

@iarebridezilla:  She is SO CUTE!  Must. Squeeze. Cheeks!  As for the guilt- would you feel more guilty if you put her in the cute outfits and she spit up on them?  As someone above said, babies are a mess.  She’s gonna get her cute outfits dirty. Maybe if you know you’re going to be out for a short amount of time, put her in an outfit.  That way she gets to look cute out of the house, but you also know that if (when) she spits up you she won’t have to be in dirty clothes for long.

What a cutie!

I am babysitting my niece and nephew (twins) right now and they live in pj’s!  It’s just so much easier!  They are a little over a year so they are trying to feed themselves and it gets everywhere!  When the weather was warmer they were just in onesies all the time, or just a diaper!  My sister got sick of doing so much laundry!

Don’t worry about it.  Hang on to the cute clothes in case you ever have another girl.

@iarebridezilla:  I liked the idea of dressing her up in hte outfits for pics or having one dress up day a week or something.

However, like a PP said, I WISH I could wear pjs all day. Your adorable daughter will thank you for it.

@iarebridezilla:  you said…

I try not to wish her life away by saying things like “I can’t wait til she’s old enough to _____” but I must admit, I CANNOT WAIT UNTIL SHE’S OLD ENOUGH TO STOP THIS NONSENSE. Haha this morning she managed to puke on me as I carried her downstairs from bed. She hadn’t had a bottle in four hours. Where did the puke even come from? How was there so much of it!?!?!?

This reply brought back such intense memories for me…

When I first went back to work after Mat Leave, I found that I’d get up have my shower, get dressed for work, and then get my baby up.  Inevitably they’d do something to ruin my clothes and I had to change.

It got to the point where I’d get up at the same time… throw on my ratty sweats… get them ready / going for the day… drop them at the Sitters (in our Neighbourhood) … and then come back home to have my shower and get ready for work.  Only way I could stay realtively clean.

Don’t RUSH things…

Wait til you get to teething…

That is a whole other mess (HINT – other end)

I honestly think the reason that Moms are pregnant for 9 Months is so we will fall in LOVE so completely before the little devils get here… cause the first year ain’t pretty.

Hope this helps,

@iarebridezilla:  There’s an additional 25% off of clearance at Carter’s right now! I know they didn’t email it… I don’t know why, it’s frustrating. It drives our business down. Also, there are a TON of 60% and 70% off rounders, and you can use your 20% off coupon on top of that! Some people are getting outfits for like $3 and $4.

@iarebridezilla:  I had the spitting up problem with DS until about 4 or 5 months of age- it was really hard, especially combined with poop blow-outs… I couldn’t keep up! I did put him into cute outfits and take pics so his nice clothes did get some use, but usually he’d be in Jammie’s most of the days. Bins didn’t really help- way too much spit up for a bib to be of any use! Once the spitting up stops, life got a lot easier:)

@MrsPanda99:  False! Changing an outfit with onesies pulled over the head and potentially more than one piece is much more difficult to change than a one piece snap up sleeper. I know, I do it all the time at work lol.

@iarebridezilla:  We have a ton of sleepers on clearance right now, they’re all the fleece ones. If they’re not on clearance, they’re on 70% off. However, obviously your stores are going to be stocked different than ours in Florida. But they should still be having the same sale, and they should be starting to move their fall/winter clothes to the sale racks because they should already have some spring stuff in. We already have bathing suits in, and Valentine’s Day, and St. Patrick’s Day, etc.
