There was a little boy there who was seven months, and he was wearing comfy a comfy top and bottom, both organic cotton, super soft. We were jealous.
After about an hour, I changed her into the spare sleeper I had in the truck.
Go for comfort and comfort alone.
That. MIL always used to buy DD these fancy, frilly, poufy dresses and then expect us to dress DD up in them and send MIL photos, or dress DD in them when we visited. (That woman seriously needs to buy herself a doll, but that is another point.) Some people just do not understand that babies are not just miniature adults. They have a totally different lifestyle, and therefore different needs for their clothes. At 7 months old, DD and DS were always either: sleeping, nursing, in our arms, in a sling, in a carseat, or in a stroller. Maybe sometimes propped up on a boppy for playtime. But mostly, in a sling or arms. Some 7 mo's could add crawling or scooting to that list. How is a dress or suit possibly comfortable for any of that???? Grown-up clothes just bunch up or ride up when you can't yet walk. Our kids spent all their time in onesies or sleepers, until they were walking.
Anything comfortable and clean would be fine.
That said, that tuxedo onesie sure is cute!! Formal, yet comfortable! The price isn't bad, either.
Hope you all have fun at the wedding!
