Oh Boy…Here We Go


I have a confession to make.

When I found out I was pregnant with a little boy, I was perhaps slightly let down that I wasn’t having another little girl. I’m a creature of habit, so I already knew what to expect with a tiny girl. (Plus, she has all the same parts as me. Just seems easier, you know?) I am truly worried that I won’t know how to be a boy-mom! (Trucks? Dinosaurs? Huh? )

I also already have all these really cute baby girl clothes that I was really hoping to reuse with baby #2. I mean, we have heaps and heaps of clothing gifted from family and friends, and from too many sessions of late-night-breastfeeding-online-shopping. These will never be used again! Sob.

As I get further into my 2nd trimester, I’ve finally started to buy a few items for Baby Boy Che. Specifically, I’m looking at little clothes and swaddles – and I’m pleasantly surprised to see that I was sorely mistaken – cute clothing for little boys does exist! Okay. I’m not going to lie, baby girl clothes are still way cuter. But I’m not as disheartened as I thought I would be – designers have started to move away from the typical dinosaur or superhero decals and moved into beautiful colors and unisex patterns. Now THAT i can get on board with.

One last question though, for those of you who have little baby boys already…. can infant boys wear leggings? Genuine question. Please help.

Hope your Monday is going well.

    Hi there! I have 3 boys and yes! Boys can wear leggings. I’ve found a lot of cute ones from Zara, cotton on kids and Uniqlo.

    Hiya Jody! Congrats! I had the same question and concern about boys clothes. I like h&m and cotton on kids for their little pants/leggings. I also find myself putting him in jeans. Janie and jack has cute boys clothes as well as Zara and jcrew cuts (when he is older). Gymboree is ok as well. The oh joy city blanket is adorable and so soft. I got those city blanket sheets as well. And I love the Estella taxi and metro card rattles. There are cute things for boys too. :) Janie and jack has some cute stuffed animals. And they can wear cute paper boy caps and vests and scarves.

    Yes!! I have a 2 1/2 year old and he still wears leggings. I don’t think his Dad appreciates it as much as I do but I buy the clothes so I win!!


Oh hey, leave a message!
