Too much! I buy her clothes nearly every time we go out. The clothes are just too adorable to pass up.

Thanks *Kiliki* for my wonderful siggy

The clothes are hard to resist, but I've been able to do it. I buy as I need to. I don't want to waste money on clothes that will barely be worn. I have newborn sized clothes that he never even wore.

I might buy an outfit now & then on clearance but for the most part none. Because I have so many 0-3, 3-6, & 6-9 month clothes so she really doesnt need any more.

Thank you for the amazing siggy *Kiliki*

Haven't really bought any...easier to resist when shopping for boys. It's the girls clothes that are too cute but I'm still reluctant to do much shopping as he seems to be growing so much that he prolly wouldn't be able to wear it for long n I'm not getting him out of the house much that I wouldn't be showing him off as much being holed up in the house

Not much. I know how quick they grow out of stuff at this age. I got a ton of clothes at the baby shower and I have some clothes from my first son I use for baby. Plus whatever I bought during my pregnancy. Since he's been born I've bought a few items but he really needed warm fuzzy sleepers because of how cold it had gotten. That was one thing I did not have enough of for some reason, warm fuzzy sleepers.

I've been trying to control myself too, but the girls clothes is SO cute! Outside of the newborn clothes I had to get when she was born ( didn't expect her to need newborn size for so long), I've really only gotten more fleece sleepers and stuff on clearance as I've seen it. I got SO much while I was pregnant, so she's set for awhile

Too much. But not my fault that Emmett is a monster and majority of the clothes he have are newborn and 0-3 and my giant baby is already in 6 mth. We have some 6 mth stuff but it is mostly summer and we need some warmer things still. Never thought I would have a 15 lb 25 inch long 9 week old.

I'm trying to avoid spending a lot since they grow through the sizes so quickly at this point not to mention, I have hand me downs from Jack. It's my daughter that I can't resist buying for. Ugh, the girly clothes are hard to resist!

A lot but I haven't added it all up. Baby clothing is surprisingly expensive consider how little fabric is involved

B only had 2 or 3 "new" outfits, and I dont even think I bought them. I buy all my kids' stuff at consignment sales.

With 3 kids, the laundry is starting to add up. I think Im only going to have 10 outfits for each kid per season because it's just getting ridiculous! I NEED to buy some more 3-6 mo clothes for B, though, he has just a few outfits and he is busting through his 0-3 mo stuff. And the 3-6 mo stuff he has fits just right, so I dont know how much longer he'll be able to wear them! I need to go shopping when our tax refund gets deposited...
