Baby socks simply slip off my babies’ floppy ankles, or they manage to rub their feet together and slip them off. So I like footed one-pieces – they are my favorite kind of baby clothes. But when I have them in something non-footed, I LOVE Zutano booties to put on their feet. They are so soft, have adjustable snaps around the ankles so they won’t slide off (key!), and come in truly fun fabrics. My latest favorite for my newest baby (born the day of this post) is a turqoise cotton with multi-colored owls all over.

We wore ours to pieces. Great call!!

Though a friend gave me the sweetest little pairs for my twin girls (11mths) and I have been putting them in them for church.
I love onesies my girls live in them and those bundler things for night time great for sleeping not so great lol foradventurous crawlers. i only dress the girls on weekend- cause we may have visitors and just because they grow so fast and I want them to at least wear some of the cutie outfits once.

As Jamaican say Happy landing when it comes :)

We had a boy, Konrad. Anyway in addition to the Baby Gap I have been in love with Dwell Baby from Target. They have the cutest stuff, well made and fits great. Here is the link:

Folding brand new, freshly laundered, tiny clothes is my favorite thing about preparing for a new baby.

No overalls, jeans or anything that prevented them from moving freely. I also love bare feet or just a little something to keep baby feet warm. I so wish the baby clothes that are available now were available 30 years ago!

I am pregnant with my first baby who is due in late August. I was actually in babyGap on Friday staring at all the clothes feeling pretty overwhelmed and realizing I had no idea what babies actually wore. All that to say, this post came at just the right time. Thanks so much! I am now planning to head to Gap on my lunch hour:)

I thought for sure you’d have chosen something more interesting and more design-oriented (?) with more color or flair. Tea, Kate Quinn, Zutano? That being said, the simplicity of the BabyGap pieces is lovely and oh-so-soft and cozy. Getting so excited for you and your coming wonder. Yahoo!

I did the little gowns with my first by I like the sleepers best. I also like to have a large stack of carter onesies.

And I much preferred footy pj’s with zippers. Because my kids are the masters of getting socks off. My 6 month old still will not leave a sock on. I tried putting shoes with it – they both find their way off.

Both my kids were born in October and I think the #1 purchase for me was the J.J. Cole Bundle Me for the carseat – no having to put jackets and snowsuits on the little one. Just toss ‘em in the carseat and zip it up. The one I have is fleece lined and awe.some. Lasted until they were a year and moving to a regular (non-portable) car seat. (I tried one of those covers that had the face hole, but the first tot hated it.)

So, kimono-style onesies, gowns and shirts, along with zippered sleeper suits were what we used.

Those are such cute things. You are so lucky you get to buy for a girl. My bank account is probably thankful I don’t have a girl but their clothes are sweet in a way that boys won’t ever be.

I loved zippered pajamas. When I was changing the 6th or 10th or 12th diaper in the middle of the night, I hated having to line up those snaps.

And call me insane, but I always changed my kiddo out of his pajamas in the morning. Somehow it made it feel like a new day and would give me a little mental boost when I was exhausted beyond all exhaustion.

I had a ton of outfits for my little guys that were simply never worn. I definitely go for comfort – footed onesies (winter baby in Boston) or rompers (summer baby) all the time! Shoes can wait, although Robeez-like shoes do help keep socks on. Even after the first few months, I tend to stuck to easy and comfortable clothes – cotton pants and bodysuits.

I felt like such a dope! But putting a baby who is constantly sleeping in clothes seems cruel and uncomfortable. I’m all about comfort when it comes to infants, so I say skip the outfits ’til they’re awake more and a little bigger. They look cuter then anyway.
