Nice grin

Can you wash it first and 'accidentally' shrink it?

Or sneak it into the next charity bag you get?

You'll hate it, she'll love it.

She'll soon grow out of it

Ha ha when I read the title my mind was racing......

Red and green? (expect if a beauty Queen).
White after Labour day?
Socks with sandles?
Jeans with no belt? (no belt, no mates!)

But purple fur coat does not sound that bad......but not that good either grin at least he tried.

i like babies in furry stuff. I prefer teddy bear type fur fabric than something with the texture of a weasel stole a gin hag might wear. But in general, furry baby clothes = lovely snuggly cuddles. grin

bedhog I love the image you have conjured up with gin hag soooo going to nick that one.

Oooohhh she looked like a right gin hag.... up there with oooohh she is a right dirty bag or carrotts that one grin

Ah your DH wants to choose something he likes for his daughter, whats wrong with that? I am sure you choose plenty of things and its just a coat.

3 month old babies can get away with wearing absolutely anything (except lingerie and spike heels, obviously).

Furry stuff irritates the hell out of me, it tickles and it is annoying, so I can only imagine how much it will annoy a baby.

pointythings Mon 03-Oct-11 21:13:26

And if this is the coat, then YABU - it's adorable.

ILikeToMoveItMoveIt Mon 03-Oct-11 21:14:33

Ha ha, that sounds awful.

What did you say? are you a convincing liar?!

scottishmummy Mon 03-Oct-11 21:25:12

fake fur is adorable on babies i had a white fake fur looked like a wee polar bear

mynameis Mon 03-Oct-11 21:29:26

Aww someone bought that for my new DD I think it's quite sweetsmile

Zippylovesgeorge Mon 03-Oct-11 21:32:56

She'll look gorgeous if its the coat in the link - all snuggly & cuddly smile

fluffywhitekittens Mon 03-Oct-11 21:34:25

I like it smile

ChippingIn Mon 03-Oct-11 21:35:20

I was all ready to agree with you - but if it's the one in the link then I think it's really cute.

babycham42 Mon 03-Oct-11 21:35:21

It sounds lovely. I would like a purple faux fur coat too.


Eglu Mon 03-Oct-11 21:36:22

Oh that coat is much cuter than I was picturing in my head. However I think that a 3mth old is better in a cute snowsuit and something lighter in colour.

(I also have a 3mth old DD)

babycham42 Mon 03-Oct-11 21:37:51

<sneakily looks to see if they do an "age 40+">grin

Primafacie Mon 03-Oct-11 21:40:50

Your DH buys baby clothes???

AllGoodNamesGone Mon 03-Oct-11 21:42:51

Aw! It wouldn't be my first choice but I think it's lovely that he's bought her something - why should mums get all the fun of clothes buying? I reckon you'll grow to love it because he chose it for her and she'll soon grow out of it anyway.

Just make sure you get in first when she needs a new one grin

I can remember someone asking me in the street if my baby was ill ( as i d taken them out in a plain white sleepsuit )

I wonder now if it was the parent who dressed their child in said fur jacket !
