Even though we are adding another girl to our family in early December, it doesn’t mean that she will be wearing all hand me downs from her older sister. So I’ve been on a search for her very own coming home from the hospital outfit, which may very well be her only new outfit for a while. My criteria was simple in this search. First they have to be footies, because I’m not dealing with socks falling off. Second it must be affordable as baby sister will outgrow a newborn outfit quickly and will most likely have some sort of blowout and won’t wear it for long. And third, it must be comfortable and cozy. I’ve learned my lesson from big sister Abby as to what brands to avoid as some outfits, though cheap, tend to be stiff. Here are some of the top looks I’m contemplating bringing baby sister home in, plus some baby boy and unisex options for you to gander as well!
