My first two bambinos were boys, and I wasn’t a mama very long before I learned the cold, hard truth about shopping for them:
Baby girls’ clothes are just way cuter.
It’s true, there are cute things for little boys but it takes much more shopping prowess. You have to know where to look if you don’t want your little guy to look like every Caden, Braden and Jaden in his daycare class.
I’ve found that this is especially true when shopping for birthday togs. For girls, the special birthday outfit options are endless. There are tutus and tiaras and little dresses that perfectly capture their toddler style.
But for boys? Not so much.
That’s why I love Etsy. You can find lots of options to make your little boy stand out on his big day. Check out this collection of adorable birthday clothes for your little dude.
I dare you to not say Awww.
