Do any of you moms of boys find it hard to get cute clothes for your sons?

Do any moms of girls feel that the clothes available for their daughters are too "grown up?"

What other problems do you feel you face when clothes shopping for your children?

Yes! I find it SO hard to shop for Harvey because either I am way too fussy or else some clothing stores just don't have a great selection :-/ It is beyond frustrating! I went to Next to pick Harvey up a few things and while I usually love that place and get most of Harvey's clothes from there, I did not see ONE thing that I liked. Most of it was little cardigans, shirts and ties or pink t-shirts...yuck! I picked up a few things in Asda the other day though, their clothes are very cute. Or Sainsbury's which aren't too bad either.

Likewise. We shop at Target and Old Navy, for the most part, and it's always age appropriate in the kids section.. in my opinion, anyway. I've never looked at anything and said "yikes!".

Yes, I hate buying clothes for Jackson here. Everything seems to be so 'jocky'. Like it's all sports numbers, or stuff like that. What is so hard about just having plan cute shirts, etc?

i dont like girls clothes because they mostly all are "to grown up" looking around here. boys clothes i hate because they are mostly character clothes but ds loves cars and toy story so we have a lot :/

I found the exact same with next recently. They even had NOTHING for harry. Most of the shop was girls clothes. even the boys "section" had a few rails of girls clothes. and the things they did have for harry were all navy and grey. I dont want to put such dull colours on my tiny baby. I want nice pale blues, and pretty baby colours!
The stuff for jake was so awful! it was either pinks and purples or black. no happy in between colours.

We dont have sainsburys or asda, i can usually get a few bits for jake in tesco, but i'm finding it so hard to get nice things for harry. i'm actually browsing online atm to see if i can find anything. I'm beyond frustrated.

Yes, it is hard. It's either super preppy or sports or characters. gag
