DDC jumping, I'm a late January so I'm coming over here b/c all the Jans are already born.

I so agree about those ugly little teddy bears!! Ruins all the cute Baby Gap clothes for me.

My first was born in the summer and the side snap Gerber shirts and a diaper cover were the best.

We also have a lot of those cute Carter's terry cloth sleepers. I also just like little tshirts, with a little snap at the neck, and little pants.

I think onesies are a pain - they always get wedged in too close in the crotch and end up getting pee on them. And the snaps, ugh.

I thought the gowns were kind of weird and tangly.

I got a lot at used places. I *love* Gymboree clothes, they are so cute and just a pleasure.

I haven't bought anything new. I've gotten free hand-me-downs, 50 cent garage sale clothes, and $2 thrift store clothes. And lots of homemade blankets.

The main thing I've been avoiding is clothes with flame-retardant on them. Unfortunately, a lot of clothes will not say if they are covered in flame retardants, and I know most sleepwear is required to have it. I only buy things that say "not intended for use as sleepwear", are organic, or are made by Carter's (who does not use any flame-retardants). I like the baby gap style, but I cannot be sure their sleepwear is not treated with chemicals.

Loving my girl since Feb 2010! vax!
