Neither of my children wore denim until they were 12 months old - hate seeing little babies in 'grownup' clothes.
Licensed clothing -loathe the stuff (except for Peter Rabbit - I think that's classic and my little boy had some beautiful Peter Rabbit onesies). One Christmas, my daughter who was 3 at the time, received 'Dora' nighties and t-shirts from my in-laws and they were all returned to Target on Boxing Day! I can't stand 'Dora' anything!!!
Runners/Sneakers worn with jeans, shorts, etc. My children only wear runners with trackie pants and only at home.
