To wish people wouldn't put headbands on babies?

(262 Posts)

I hate wearing headbands. I last about an hour before the pressure behind my ears really gets to me.

Once they are old enough to figure out how, they will pull them off at every opportunity. They clearly don't like to wear them.

I know people think they are cute but babies are already cute! Little boys aren't put through this torture. AIBU?

And all her tutus have a cotton underskirt anyway.

Dd just turned 1 has masses of hair so hair accessories are sometimes needed to keep it out of her eyes.

She's also got a tutu on at the minute...... Oh the horror! But it's cotton underneath so it doesn't irritate her skin.

If people think I'm a chav for how dd is dressed fine people probably think I'm chavvy for my fake tab habit anyway. Calling my baby chavvy because of my dress choices is mean.

As long as a baby is in weather appropriate clothes and there clothes haven't got poo or anything on them what's the problem.

"Agree that babies with bone-conducting hearing aids need to wear headbands to keep the BC aid attached"

And once again MN reminds me to think before judging.

I'm not keen on hairbands (agree Bunty's baby is very cute but she'd be cute without the hairband too!) but as long as they're not hurting/causing discomfort to the baby then "meh"

I actually wish I'd paid more attention to putting DS in cute clothes now I look back at the photos and blush but it was hard because he threw up so many times a day (reflux until 15 months) that even if he started the day in matching clothes, within an hour at least one piece of clothing had had to be changed.

My favourite is "Sometimes I put Quinoa in Time Out just to adore her outfits"

I think that's really cute! I fail at mumsnet I guess. blush I actually can't wait for DTs to get bigger so I can buy them lots of shoes, right now they live in slip on trainers.

I do think tutus look very cute, but I'm biased because of a traumatising bridesmaid experience where I had to wear this hideous taffeta dress that gave me the worst rash!

Where do you get bubblegum scented shoes, want them! I don't like seeing newborns in overly fussy/restrictive outfits as they look uncomfortable, can't tell you they aren't enjoying it etc but a one year old in a tutu seems pretty standard to me

The bubble gum shoes are from mini Melissa + campana.

Oh I quite like baby headbands. Dd had a few and she was a real baldy sad. I must be chavvy then.

She's 3 now and has shoulder length hair that I can plait and she loves to wear dresses.

I don't care how other people dress their children and I hope they don't care how I dress mine!
