You just found out you are having a baby girl and you couldn’t be more excited. You are especially thrilled to go shopping for baby clothes, because they are so dang cute and you can just picture your precious bundle of joy looking like a real life baby doll when she wears them. But before you spend a small fortune on a closet full of items your little one will only wear a few times, it’s important to make sure you have the basic items covered:
These one-piece wonders are what your little girl will be wearing almost every day. In fact, most days she will go through three or four of them (from spit-up to diaper blow-outs, be prepared to be changing her clothes a lot). While they do make a great layering piece, in most situations, your daughter won’t wear anything over her onesie. For this reason, you want to find several different varieties that can hold their own in the style department.
These stylish, and oh-so-adorable, pants are one of the most versatile pieces of baby clothes you can buy. You can pair leggings with a onesie for a no-fuss outfit, or you can put them under a dress or tutu for added style and warmth. You can either purchase several different colors to go with each outfit, or just get a bunch of black ones so you don’t have to worry about what’s clean and what’s dirty.
For most circumstances, a simple onesie and legging combo will suffice, especially if you are just hanging out at home (they can also double as pajamas). But for special occasions (and even when running errands), you are going to want to have a few irresistibly cute outfits on hand. You want the entire world to see how adorable your munchkin is, and the more dolled up she is, the more people will notice.
Okay, now that all of the basic items are out of the way, let’s talk about the fun side of baby girl clothes: tutus and headbands. No, they are not a requirement, but they will bring your daughter’s cuteness factor up a notch or two. They also ensure that strangers won’t start asking you questions about your son.
That about covers it. If you can stock up on all of these basic items, you will be armed with all of the baby clothes you need for the first few months of your baby’s life.
