My long-legged baby has grown out of almost all her pants! So I have had been waiting anxiously for some decent warm weather so I can move her over to her spring wardrobe.
Being a long, skinny baby I have found myself in a bit of a tough spot when it comes to her clothes. She needs pants that are longer in the leg, but the tops are still quite baggy on her. So she is currently in a mixture of 6 to 12 month, 9 to 12 month and 12 to 18 month clothing (Thank goodness for Mr Price which makes baby clothes that are nice and long in the leg as well as in 9 to 12 month sizes!).
Also our needs have changed. Her spring wardrobe is dominated by good, cheap basics as she is on the floor a lot – its where she prefers to be these days; she is an avid explorer and is very mobile. Also she is eating solids and most days insists on feeding herself. So we needed clothes that wash well, can get dirtied up and stained without breaking my heart and are comfy and easy to move in.
Here is a quick look of what Willow will be wearing this spring and where we got them.
