Things New Parents Should Know # 8 - Fashion [Sep. 2nd, 2008|12:46 am]
[mood |sleepysleepy]

Some days your child will go through more clothes than Elle Macpherson at the height of her modelling career. This is because babies are actually very fashion conscious, and don't like to be seen wearing the same thing for more than a few hours in a row, lest it seem they are behind the times.

The child has at its disposal a variety of ways to try to achieve the maximum number of changes in a day. It will use each and every one of them at every opportunity. It is ruthless in its pursuit of what is called, 'The Look.'

Wash a load of baby clothes as soon as you have enough to justify it. If you wait too long, you'd be surprised how quickly you can end up down to your last oufit for bub.

Also, more than one pattern per outfit is always a fashion no-no.

And this pattern continues for quite a few years, with complications once the child starts choosing for herself, and insists on skirts every day, so that they can spin around in them.

Your posts are bringing back all sorts of memories.

... and as soon as you start a wash of baby (kid) stuff, the very next nappy will be a poo... even if you wait until after they've done one... the next will _still_ be one!

There is _always_ a pooey nappy in the bucket.

I gave in not long ago and bought a clothes dryer, (also because of merve damage making things difficult to manage). PS: get used to never being able to find a matching pair of baby socks!

This in fact is not a problem as mismatched socks are very "in"...all the big kids do it. :)

Parental fashion tip: climb into the equivalent of a bin liner for several years.
