Just wondering if anyone else bought a lot of 'pretty' outfits for their baby and then regretted it. I had been collecting clothes for years for my future babies, before I got pregnant, and among them quite a few very cute little outfits like pretty dresses, or tops and frilly bloomers etc, and she keeps just growing out of them and they get packed away again before she's even worn them because they're so impractical (especially in a carrier) and mostly just look stupid on her because she's so little and can't walk yet etc. Wish I'd just stocked up on plain onesies instead. I don't even like to put her in onesies with pictures on them, because they've either got that mesh stuff on the inside where the sewing is - uncomfortable - or that paint type stuff on the front. Am I crazy or do other mums feel this way too?

Do you like your babies' clothes plain or fancy?

I like 100% cotton clothes for my babies. I like them to be pretty with frills etc but not the stuck on pictures etc.
I find until they are sitting up well and crawling I will only use comfortable clothes on them (no dresses etc) once they can sit I get a bit more fancy with them then when walking its all pretty frills etc. but no I don't like logos, sayings, Disney characters etc. I like more hand made sort if clothing. I think it generally wears better also.

I like well made plain-ish clothes on kids under 1. My girls lived in onesies but I tended to buy Eeni Meenhi or other brands that made them in more subdued colours. DD1 also wore bonds in her first year because they were still good quality back then.

I think that nothing looks worse on a baby than OTT outfits. It's tacky and trashy. I don't see the point.

I think fancy means different things to different people. I mostly had my dd in plain clothes under that age of 1, but I definitely had some pretty dresses that she wore for special occasions. I loved those dresses and she could crawl quite well in a dress too! I love pretty things and pretty or plain she grew out of them quickly, so that was just part of life.

Plain clothes here. I hate all the Dora and barbie stuff out there!

My kids only had plain clothes, in fact they really only have plain clothes now. My DD has a few dresses but I've never actually bought her a dress (except the one for her first birthday which she didn't appreciate at all! ) The dresses she does have are very short because she is a climber and it's not really practical to climb whist you're wearing a long dress. I put little bloomers on underneath, very cute. DS lived/lives in cotton shorts and t-shirts and DD mostly wears the same. As babies they mostly wore plain onsies and rompers with one or two cute outfits for when I was feeling cr@ppy or they were going somewhere special.

As a little girl I was a girlie girl. If I wasn't so overweight at the moment I'd wear more girlie things...
Anyhow my little girl has a mixture, we have homely, practical items and we have items that are for parties etc. a little bit of everything now she is one.
