Parenting after a Loss

Baby Clothing Anonymous

Hi, my name is Jessica, and I'm addicted to baby clothing!

Am I the only one? I can't be, can I? It's all just so darn cute! DH and I were out this past Friday, and I needed a sleeveless onesie as an undershirt for B's baptism. I went into Baby Gap and got the undershirt, but also left with 2 other outfits! Why does it all have to be so adorable? My biggest problem is I'm running out of room for all these clothes- I know, I know, total FWP.

 

Are any of you other mamas addicted to baby clothes? Please join me!

Re: Baby Clothing Anonymous

  • YES!  I will definitely join you.  I think I get on the Baby Gap, Old Navy, and Carters websites daily, not to mention I check Zulily every morning too!  Now the DD is growing so much she is going through clothes like crazy and it makes me sick how much stuff she already doesn't fit in to that she didn't wear or only wore once.  You would think this would stop me from all the shopping but it doesn't.  I have a ton of dresses for her and they all seem too dressy for every day so she rarely gets to wear the cutest stuff I have for her.  I take pictures of her almost daily to record the cuteness so I'm not the only one who gets to see it!
  • Yup.  I have SO many clothes for DS.. and, he grows like a weed so I'm constantly buying more because he's outgrown what I've already bought!!! He's 10mos and wearing 18-24mos already!!

    I justify it by saying since we're having another boy at the same season (and, probably also a chubber, too!!), the clothes will get the use!

    I also have 2 nephews, and have gotten tons of hand-me-downs from them, too!! DS's closet (a full walk in!), and 2 dressers are all stacked full =)

    This!  I wish people wouldn't buy me clothes!  I feel like I have to dress DD in them to show we appreciate it, even though they may not be what I would pick, and I feel like a wasted a day when she could have been in something I thought was cuter!  I know that is ungrateful but what I would really like are some diapers, not another frilly outfit that is so not our taste and really could use an ironing before wearing....  I am so not ironing baby clothes...

    Old Navy and Baby Gap are like my crack, lol! I love Zulily, too. I'm so bad about Gap, that when we got home from B's baptism yesterday and were going through all the gifts, when I saw we got a Gap gift card, I hopped right onto their mobile site and got him 2 pairs of jammies (they were only $18 each if I bought 2) and an adorable romper!

    DH says I need an intervention, but really, he's my biggest enabler. If we need to run to the baby store for something, on the way there I prep myself- "Okay, Jess, all we need is _____ today. No more clothing! Just stay out of that section." DH laughs at me, and then when we get there, he will inevitably head over to the clothing section and start picking things up saying- "Oh, this is really cute." and "Hey look at this!" Totally not fair!

    Agreed!  Some stuff comes pretty quickly and others take forever.  Usually when it shows up at the door I haven't a clue what I ordered.  I try to order at least one size in advance because otherwise there is a good chance she will have outgrown it by the time it arrives! 

  • I'm find baby clothing so cute too! Right now, I'm loving these tumsies, which are these special onesies that comes in the cutest prints. They are so soft and comfortable too! After I got these, I stopped getting basic, boring, white onesies. You should check them out here - www.tumsie.com

  • Hi, my name is s0ulchicken, and I too, am addicted to baby clothing.

    Seriously, I've bought stuff all the way up to 24 months, and have it stored in Rubbermaid tubs.If I don't stop soon, I am going to run out of room before they're 1!

  • Yup, me too! Ive become a huge baby gap snob. But...if I get the stuff in clearance it's usually cheaper than other places. Gap knows how to do a good discount! Plus I have a boy and it is so much harder to find cute clothes without them all having animals plastered over the butts.

    I live at the Gap and Children's Place. Both of my boys were different seasons so other than some PJs and onesies it was new stuff. I have 2 closets and dressers filled with stuff. What's bad is I do grocery shopping at Walmart and Meijers and both of the stores have the baby stuff by the food, so I can't help it. They have cute boy clothes too without the animals on the butt.

  • Omigosh, yes. And it's especially bad because I can't actually afford new baby clothes for DD, let alone the super cute stuff at Baby Gap and OshKosh. They're my favorites, and the jammies from The Children's Place! Drool. I try to shop at Once Upon a Child whenever I can, and DD has gotten a lot of high-end hand-me-downs from a mama in my mom's group. She is only stylin' because this mama is so kind!

  • I am! Thankfully DD is petite so she's getting lots of wear out of her clothes. She is just barely into 3-6 months at almost 5 months. But there are so many clothes in that size, she can probably go two weeks without repeating an outfit. Now I am trying to only buy 12 plus months.
