Dressing like a girl

I recently posted about whether you could dress a girl in her brother's old clothes. I've been thinking about clothes a lot lately because we're having a bit of a clearout and I've been bagging up the baby clothes for the charity shop. Mia is also starting to finally outgrow her 0-3 month clothes (she's nearly 5 months old!) and I've been sorting out clothes for her in the next size up. We've been lucky enough to receive some really lovely little outfits, so I'm making the effort to dress her up properly, rather than just being lazy and popping her in jeans and a top.

Some of her dresses are a bit summery, so I've been layering them up with vests and a cardigan, as well as faffing about with tights. It's a bit undignified though for girls when they are wearing a dress and you put them in the baby carrier, pushchair or car seat with a strap between their legs. Just another one of those things that never crossed my mind with a boy. I imagine that the dresses will cause problems later when she starts to crawl as well.

It won't be long before I need to start thinking about hair bobbles, can't wait!

  1. You will have to get the ruffle bum pants for under dresses!
    It is heaven isnt it all this girls stuff. I'm even worse after the 4 boys. Boys just have top and trousers. With girls its the matching cardigan, tights, hat etc!


I love reading your comments!
