What Not To Wear: Baby Edition – Rookie Moms

by Vaibhav Sharda

As mothers, we all know there are certain basics we should have in our wardrobes for the day-to-day life of parenting. However, the same could not be said for babies.

What Not To Wear: Baby Edition – Rookie Moms

This is an extra special edition to the What Not To Wear series because it is all about the baby. This is a very special time for every mother-to-be. You thought you knew what to expect, but the truth is that things change so much during the first few years of your baby’s life. I’m here to help you answer all of your questions about what to wear, how to prepare, and where to find all of the things you need.. Read more about newborn baby stuff and let us know what you think.

Winnie the Pooh is a sad character. He’s a lovely man, but mothers these days aren’t too keen on him.

We polled parents on our Facebook page to find out what kinds of clothes they refuse to put on their kids. While this is a very subjective issue, and I doubt we all have the same views on these trends, here are some of the items that some mothers have identified as styles they do not want their children to wear. 1. Camoflague is a term for a kind of camouflage. I believe it is too early in life to draft our children into war. Many of you do not want your children to wear camo, despite the fact that it is a current fad.

Bikinis are number two. The tiny weeny bikinis have received no “likes” on Facebook.

3. The terms “Mommy” and “Daddy” are used. Above an image of a boat, Mommy’s Little Sailor? With a cheetah print, how about Wild About Daddy? “No, thank you,” you say. Especially not this explicit depiction of Daddy’s connection with the infant. Umm.


4. Animals in pastel colors. There are also neon animals. There are also neon automobiles. Okay, this one is a little more subjective. I believe we’re talking about overall cheesiness here. Or is it simply plain ugliness? I’m having a hard time deciding on a product to depict.

Turtlenecks are number five. We don’t need to say anything else. We will, though. “Because a newborn shouldn’t look like Steve Jobs in a little black mock turtleneck onesie,” explains Val of San Francisco.

Styles for babies that moms hate 6. Proclamations that this baby may be a jerk. I Heart Boobies, Little Monster, Call Me Princess, Lady Killer, and other ostensibly haughty statements are all dismissed.

7. Scribbling on the buttocks What could be worse than a onesie with the words “Little Diva” on it? One who screams it from the crotch.


Skulls are number eight. Many mothers think they’re scary. Enough people dispute that Honest Co produces diapers with skulls, so I got them for my nephew’s mom since I thought she’d like them. But, oh well. These may be found at Target. If you hate skulls, don’t bother.

9. Apparel from the NFL, NASCAR, and NBA. Some parents are concerned about their kid being used as a billboard for multi-million dollar corporations. Disney is one among them. That’s all right.

11 styles for babies that no mom is excited about Overalls are a bonus conversation subject. Isn’t it true that overalls are cute? Or do you despise overalls? I’m not sure.

Whatever you think of the choices above, I’m certain that by the time our kids are grown, we’ll think they’re all cute — even NASCAR turtlenecks with neon animal-themed overalls.
