Anyone who knew me when I had Hanna knows how much fun I had dressing her. I was really into shopping for her. And how could I not be. Little girl clothes are SO darn cute. I didn’t mind splurging on her wardrobe because I made sure I took really good care of her clothing so I could resell it when she was done with it to fund the next seasons clothes. However, there were a few pieces that I just couldn’t part with. This green and white pinstripe dress with little cherries on it was hands-down one of my favorites.
In fact, I loved it so much that I bought it twice. She wore it once when she was about 6 months and then again the next summer when she was 18 months. I have this dress packed away for safe keeping.
They were my favorites on her and I was really hoping that one day she’d have a little sister that could wear them too. Even if she doesn’t get that little sister I think it’s fun to keep a few items of baby clothes from each child to show them when they are older. Either way, keeping those outfits in great shape is important if you want to hang on to them. Really, I honestly couldn’t pick just ONE favorite outfit. There are so many sweet pieces from her wardrobe that I love. They’ve become even more sentimental now that she’s older and developing opinions on what she thinks she should be wearing.
I managed to keep all of her clothes in great shape by doing a few things. I washed all of her baby and toddler clothes with Dreft because it’s made to combat all of those icky baby stains (breast milk, formula, poop explosions, toddler food, etc.) while still managing to be gentle on their sensitive skin. Then, I would hang dry all of her clothing to help prevent fading and wear from the dryer. I admit, might have been a little obsessed. It was well worth it though; everything stayed in amazing condition!
All of my favorites seem to be sweet little sundresses. I had a blast looking through pictures of her from when she was a baby and toddler to find these treasures. Even though I might have gone a little further than the average mom does to keep her clothing nice it was well worth it to me. I hope I can pull them out of the bin they are packed away in sometime in the future and put them to use again.
Whether you’re a first timer or the greatest, grandest mother of them all, there’s on thing moms have agreed on for over 75 years- Dreft makes your little one’s fabric feel as clean and soft as can be.
