Now the weather is getting colder and she can't just wear short rompers, I am struggling to dress DD - she has such long legs!
She is only 3 months, I would like to have her in babygrows, but ones with long enough legs have her upper body completely shrouded in baggy swathes of material.
She is not especially chunky, just long - does anyone know where I can get nice, soft trousers or dungarees, appropriate for a young baby (ie not denim etc) which are long in the leg without being massive in the waist, and don't cost a fortune?
Petit Bateau is good. Their clothes are perfect for long skinny minnies. Make sure you go up at least two sizes though - they are ridiculously small. At 3 months you will need 6-12 months. They will advise you in the shop, they automatically tell everyone to size up as French clothes are notoriously tiny. Which is weird, because French children are no shorter, bu I suppose they are slimmer. DS is 18 months and we are in 3 years! The beauty of them is they are very narrowly cut so no shouler gapeage or baggy tummy.
Off into town this afternoon to try and find something (liking the leggings idea, guessing they would be less likely to be too loose). I have looked at the one pair that she has already that almost fit right and they are M&S 3-6 months (no way they will last to 6 months, they are just the right length now and she is barely 3 months). Will people look at me as if I am mad if I try clothes on her in the shop?
