    Default Bringing baby home

    Bit of a ridiculous question...
    But did you/do people still take a 'bringing baby home' from hospital outfit??
    If you did-why?
    Did you take lots of photos to keep for sentimental reasons ?
    It's not a big deal just wondering!

    Ummm, yes, they need to wear something home. Mine wore onesies probably.

    I just brought both bubs home in a wonder suit, no special "going home" outfit. I do know lots of people who buy a special outfit and keep it for sentimental reasons.

    Yep I took an outfit & got lots of pics. It was nice cause when Bub was in hospital he just wore hospital singlets & gowns so I was excited to dress him in a cute little onesie :-) it wasn't anything expensive, just from Target & I'm not gonna worry about keeping it for sentimental purposes.

    Default Bringing baby home

    With my first, I didn't know what I was having, so I just had bonds wondersuits, but mum bought him the smallest pair of denim shorts and the tiniest button up shirt I've ever seen for him to wear as his 'going home outfit'.

    For my second I knew she was a girl, and I had bought loads of things for her, and had picked a sweet little dress with a onesie attached to it.

    If I have a third I won't bother. Honestly. Babies don't belong in ANYTHING other than onesies. Lol. I sound like my mum - she and I argued over this for years. But now I hate seeing their little shirts riding up and their poor bellies being exposed. I also feel like the tiny belly buttons are better protected by an all in one.

    I do still feel sentimental about their going home outfits, but mainly because they were so tiny.

    DS just wore a cute striped onesie from Target.

    We were just so happy to be bringing him home after 5 1/2 weeks in hospital, the outfit wasn't a focus for us.

    I can't even remember what DS wore home from the hospital. Certainly nothing 'special' I was so keen to get out of there that when they finally gave me the ok to go I pretty much grabbed my baby and ran. LOL. I even forgot to go to the chemist and pay for my pain meds, oops.

    Yes, with my first, we purchased a 00000 lemon yellow onesie. All my children have worn this outfit home from hospital The sentimental value of that little onesie is high!

    I brought a gorgeous outfit for my DS to come home in - and I've kept it for him to have one day (or perhaps his wife who will care more )

    I would have loved to see the outfit I came home in, so I thought it would be a nice sentimental thing. I'll do the same for this bub too

    Awww that is sweet!

    I've never been in to 'going home outfits', but in saying that, when I took my DD home she was dressed in a cute little floral jumpsuit in a 00000 that my mum bought for her because none of the other clothes fit her, and now 7 years later I still have this jumpsuit and pull it out occasionally and go "awwwwwwwwww "
    I didn't do this for my boys though LOL. But I have kept a favourite newborn outfit from each of them. As said I'm not really into keepsake type stuff but these teeny tiny outfits are just so wonderful to look back on, I'm so glad I have them, and the kids find them really fascinating as well.
