Hrm. The only suggestion I have is to consign a bunch of the unworn clothes and at least turn around and buy her stuff that will fit so the money isn’t being wasted. No one will judge you for that. ๐Ÿ™‚

My SIL said to me once that kids don’t remember infancy, so it’s just for moms in training. My nephews soak through clothes like it’s their job and she just changes bibs or changes to pjs. ๐Ÿ™‚

don’t feel bad… my daughter is three weeks old, and she too is wearing footed jammies all the time. She’s in three months, too, and we have cute clothes… But she’s still wearing sleepers. It’s cold! And she kicks off socks…and week, she and I are still home for the most part. 

I love jammies!

My 7 week old lives in a diapers and blankets! The only time she actually wears clothes is when we got out, maybe once a week. Ugh, the clothes are just sitting there going to waste. It’s just too hard to change outfits all the time. Plus, we already have way too much laundry as it is. My mom always comments like “Still not weating clothes?” And I’m like “Nope! :)”.

Hey, as a preschool worker I thank you! If she showed up in that outfit I would think nothing of it. She’s a baby. 

Some parents have their babies in onesies, with freaking overalls. Can you imagine my frustration?? I have enough diapers to change, please don’t hassle me with trying to get overalls on/off a small, leaking, crying thing.

personally, i think babies are at their cutest in their jammies ๐Ÿ™‚ my nephew is pretty darn cute… but as soon as he’s in his jammies after dinner, my heart just melts. there is nothing cuter than a baby in snuggly, fleecy footed jammies. so take comfort in the fact that you are, actually, increasing her cuteness factor even more ๐Ÿ™‚

I secretly wish I could do that… wear PJs all day. Lol! So I have nothing useful to add.

don’t feel bad… most people’s babies grow so fast that they don’t get a chance to wear a lot of their clothes, spit up issues or not. The spit up issue will sort itself out very soon, so she will have a chance to wear those fancy clothes all the time ๐Ÿ™‚

My daughter is 1 year old and had really bad reflux as a newborn, so I know about the spitup! She wore nothing but sleepers for the first 6 months of her life. After that it was summer, so she wore only a onesie or shirt and nothing else (or she wore nothing but a diaper when we were at home and it was really hot).

This winter she’s not wearing sleepers only because she won’t stay still long enough for me to get them on her! She wears shirts and pants but I wouldn’t call them “outfits” because they don’t match or look nice or anything. She still needs 2 to 3 clothing changes a day because she spills food everywhere. I honestly don’t care about nice clothes at all, for her or for me, so it doesn’t bother me. I buy all of her clothes used and many are gender-neutral (so they can be used for the next baby) and you know what, she is still the absolute cutest baby I’ve ever seen. 

Babies are seriously adorable no matter what they’re wearing! Sometimes I actually think that special outfits take away from their natural cuteness and look like they’re trying too hard to be cute. When you look back at pictures when your baby is older, you will be nostalgic for even the rattiest pajamas because she was wearing them.

iarebridezilla:  besides the fact she’s growing out of clothes that have already been purchased, there’s absolutey nothing to feel guily about in terms of putting your baby in PJs all the time.

 

Baby numver one- who just turned 6- wore all the outfits and junk.  What a pain!!  Whether baby number two (who isn’t even on the way yet) is spitter upper/vomiting machine or not, onsies and PJs will be the daily norm.  Babies are so dang cute in anything– and I find them more snuggly in PJs than anything else.  And they can really only get away with it full time for about a year/year and half, depending.  

 

My siz year old has some really cool PJs off of etsy– they are PJs, but they are more like “lougewear”– kimono style (and he’s a boy)– cute prints– he’d live in them if I’d let him– and truthfully, I’d let him if I didn’t think I’d get flack for it.  Who care if you just want to be comfortabe?!?  This shop has the CUTEST kimono style onsies/prints for babies– they are PJs, but with style.

iarebridezilla:  It’s totally ok. My son still spends most of his time in onesies. Now if he’s dressing like this when he’s 15, we’re going to have to schedule an intervention.
