Why can't babies be dressed like babies?
TWENTY years ago when my babies were little, they were in their prams nestled in a cloud of white blanket, snug in soft pastel baby-grows and cosy cardigans.
Now glance into a pram and lying there will be a little 'new born labourer', dressed in denim jeans, striped T-shirt and navy blue hoodie. Tiny baby girls in black or drab dresses, with what appears to be a garter round their heads (it can't possibly be comfortable). Little baby boys dressed as miniature granddads in old fashioned Argyle pull-overs, dark anoraks, duffel coats and sometimes with a flat cap – only replacing the pipe with a dummy! Come on mums, babies grow up so quickly; they have all their lives to wear jeans, lumberjack shirts and overalls.
If this is designer wear, then how about reversing the trend and once again dressing your little ones as babies, (they often look like little refugees). Baby girls in pretty dresses and little boys in cute outfits are so much more appealing than the unattractive current baby wear.
