To put my baby's in birth arrival outfits?

When I take my children home from the hospital, I have always had a special outfit for them and will again have one for this baby. Been reading some old threads and people think this is tacky. I really don't know why!
Is it that bad of an idea? I like getting a few photos!

To put your baby's what in birth arrival outfits?

No one puts baby in a tutu.

Babies look really crap in dresses, imo. They only start to look good at about 18months. Before that it's all a bit "Phil Mitchell in a frock"

Absolutely great idea if it floats your boat op!

Whatever makes you happy. But since you've asked, yes, I think it is tacky.

They are rather frilly.

Very cute! grin I love these.

Oops sorry about spelling mistake!

Interesting that a thread advertising these was just deleted...

They are dreadful. A cute babygro with slogan, fine. But tutus on a newborn. So uncomfortable for baby and a faff to get on. But it's a free world, do as you please.

Doesn't it depend largely on the weather?

ScarlettDarling Sun 23-Apr-17 21:23:31

Of course yanbu to get your little ones a new outfit for coming home. They're your babies, you can dress them how you want. My only concerns are that the girl outfits look really scratchy and uncomfortable for a newborn. The boy outfits are far nicer.

I think a tutu style outfit for a baby is a bit odd, also glittery bow ties. But it's your choice!

SoloDance Sun 23-Apr-17 21:23:35

They would go well in that frilly buggy that's just been deleted.

RedLemonade Sun 23-Apr-17 21:23:36

The "boy" ones are cute. The "girl" ones are indeed tack-tastic.

But hey, if you've just pushed a baby out you kind of get a free pass.

If your baby is dressed appropriately for the weather and is safe (so for example none of those headband things, purely because they are dangerous and a baby recently died wearing one as it slipped down) then dress them how you want.

Not @JakeBallardswife!
I do genuinely want to know whether you think it's tacky.
And I would agree with the Phil Mitchell thing but all my kids have had full heads of hair at birth.

SaucyJack Sun 23-Apr-17 21:25:20

Whatever floats your boat.

I just concentrated on scraping the lumps of fanny matter off of their heads meself.

I like the boy outfits, but I'm really not keen on the girls outfits
