I’ve heard many a mom complain about the lack of clothing selection in the baby boy’s department, and while I personally love shopping in the boy’s section, I can completely understand. Mamas with little boys have the opposite problem that I have when shopping for Fern. I find that most of the clothes in the baby girl’s section of stores have a little too much flair (not every article of clothing needs to have a butterfly and glitter and a bow on it) and I prefer things that are a little more simple. But the boy’s section is the opposite…not enough flair — and an overwhelming abundance of primary colors and shirts with sports/construction images on them.
This is why, just as I shop for my girl in the boy’s department, you should totally check out the girl’s department to spice up your little man’s wardrobe. I’ll admit that it’s a little more difficult to find pieces that will work for a boy in the girl’s section, but it can be done!
Here are some of my favorite items for boys from the baby girl’s section of the store!
