After I washed all of the clothes, I decided to sort them into size categories. I hung all of the newborn and 0-3 months in the closet. And I put the rest of the clothes in clear containers up on a shelf in one of his closets. I have a 3-6 month bin, 6-9 month bin, 9-12 month bin and 12+month bin. I think the child has a polo onesie in every color possible. But I noticed I am slacking in the newborn clothing area. Do any of you mamas have any advice as far as the amount of newborn clothes I should buy? As of right now, the doctors are predicting he is going to be around 7 pounds. And I noticed a lot of the newborn clothes only go to 8 pounds. So am I better off just have a very small amount of newborn items and sticking with the 0-3 month size that seems to fit 8+ pounds? I guess some big babies skip the newborn size all together. I don't want to waste money and buy newborn clothes if he is not going to wear them but I don't want to have to worry about going to the store and buying more clothes when he is home for that first week. I would love to hear your thoughts!
And as far as boys clothes are concerned, they definitely get the short end of the stick. Now that is probably a good thing because it will cause me to spend WAY less money. But I wish they had a little better selection! So far my two favorite stores for boys clothes are Gymboree and Janie and Jack. We don't have a Janie and Jack in Spartanburg but we had one in Nashville and I got some really cute outfits last time I was there. I just ordered some awesome clothes on the Gymboree website. I only spent $82.00 and I saved $283.00!! They had some great clearance items and I had $75.00 worth of Gym bucks.
I was on their website today and I noticed the new Rock n' Roll 101 section! I refrained from buying anything but I think it is all adorable. All of these outfits would look great with baby Chucks! Check out the Rock n' Roll line of clothing here! What are your favorite places to buy baby boy clothes?
This is my favorite outfit:
These shirts are on sale for $10!
