Clothes For Those Special Days
Baby clothes are a necessity more than anything else, but there are
a couple of special occasions that make the baby the center of attention.
It is moments like this that the mother's keen sense of fashion gets
to shine. Here, the fact that the baby will undoubtedly grow out of
the outfit quickly is of little to no concern, and style is of the utmost
importance. In most cases, so is tradition.
Perhaps the most obvious of these occasions is baby's homecoming. Almost
any mother can tell you what they brought their baby home in. Depending
on the time of year, this special outfit can range from a fruit print
romper to a pair of footsie pajamas. In this case, it is the sentiment
attached to the moment that makes the outfit so special. It is a good
idea to save this outfit in a memory box for when your child has children
of their own, or make it into a treasured stuffed animal. Any way that
you think is fitting to preserve the memory works, but doing something
to set this outfit aside is important.
The next big day is the baby's introduction to family. What is your
baby going to be wearing the first time they meet their grandparents,
aunts, uncles, and close friends? If this is a small secular gathering,
then something informal is an easy out. However, you may want to dress
the new family member up for the multitude of pictures that will inevitably
be taken. Of course, there is also the weather to take into account.
If the baby is going to be in a hot crowded home, then keeping them
cool is they key factor in choosing appropriate attire. A thin cotton
dress for a girl, or a onesie works great. Think of the day as an excuse
to let others change the diapers for a little while.
There is of course the more common baby coming out, either christenings
or a bris. The traditional christening attire is, of course a white
garment. This can take many forms, from a gown to a suit, and a whole
host of materials. The important thing to remember is that the baby
is going to be passed around a lot on a day like today, so make sure
that he or she is comfortable no matter how angelic they look.
For a bris, the attire is clearly gender specific. Therefore, baby tuxedos
and suits are a hot item. You would be surprised at the inexpensive
prices at which you can find a tiny tux. For less than thirty dollars,
your baby can be in his very own penguin suit. There are also more traditional
items, which are very much like that of the Christian baptism ceremony.
That is, long white gowns with blue trim. These are also modestly priced,
and generally work for either ceremony (which could potentially be a
big money saver for an interfaith marriage).
The special occasion that all mothers look forward to at the end of
a stressful but joyous year is the baby's first birthday. This outfit
is much like the baby's coming home outfit (except significantly larger),
and can be a whole host of different styles or degrees of formality.
The most important thing about this outfit is, of course, its resistance
to cake stains.
