There are pitfalls to buying fashionable baby clothing. The main pitfall to buying fashionable baby clothing is that the clothing of this nature is higher priced than the basic outfits that babies wear. If you want to buy items of clothing that will not be very expensive you should buy clothing that is purely basic articles of clothing like sleepers, bibs, tee-shirts, and night gowns.
Fashionable baby clothing is cute and the mother of the child will inevitably save the clothing for times when the baby will be out in public. That means if you buy the child this clothing then they will likely not get to wear it more than once before they outgrow it. If you are lucky they will have their picture made wearing it before they outgrow it.
Fashionable baby clothing does not mean that it will be comfortable baby clothing. Remember that a baby spends the majority of their time lying down. If the fashion of the day is constricting clothing then they may be uncomfortable for the infant to wear. Think about what you like to wear when you are going to be lying down. I bet you said sweat pants and a sweat shirt before you said a three piece suit with a tie.
Buying the best of everything is something that each parent strives to do, but when it comes to clothes for the infant the best clothing may not be the most fashionable clothing. The best clothing is pieces that are comfortable, easy to wash, and feel good to the baby that is wearing them.
Fashion does not mean comfort, it does not mean style, and it does not mean that the people wearing it have made a smart choice. Many young men wear their pants so large that they sag off of their behinds. These gentlemen could not run if they needed to because their pants would fall around their ankles and trip them. This is a fashion that is not smart or practical.
