rosefox: Nine icons depicting different items of clothing. (clothes)
Here's our inventory of baby clothes acquired thus far. Parents, how insufficient is this? :) I'm including the stuff for bigger kids for the sake of completion, but mostly I want to make sure we're stocked up on newborn/0-3 things and 3-6 things. Our baby's weight is at something like 70th percentile right now, so I expect them to size out of newborn clothes pretty quickly; we're also planning to try cloth diapering, which may mean getting leggings a size larger than we otherwise would. We have a washing machine, and I already do laundry several times a week (three adults generate a lot of laundry), if that helps with estimating how much we need to have in stock; I don't plan to let pee-soaked things sit around. Fortunate we're getting the diapers from a service and don't have to factor those into the washload.

One size:
1 lightweight swaddle

Newborn/0-3 months:
2 lightweight sleep sacks
1 heavyweight sleep sack
4 pairs leggings
1 pair jeans
1 pair overalls
5 short-sleeve kimono shirts
1 long-sleeve kimono shirt
1 long-sleeve pullover shirt
6 short-sleeve onesies
2 long-sleeve onesies
1 long-sleeve gown
2 footie sleepers
1 bib
2 hats
6 pairs socks

3-6 months:
1 lightweight swaddle
1 hoodie
1 pair leggings
1 pair jeans
1 long-sleeve kimono shirt
1 polo shirt
4 short-sleeve onesies
1 footie sleeper

6-12 months:
1 short-sleeve onesie
1 footie sleeper
1 button-down shirt
1 pair awesome sparkly purple shoes

12-18 months:
1 hoodie
1 pair shorts
1 t-shirt
1 long-sleeve shirt
1 button-down shirt

I am deeply indebted to [livejournal.com profile] vschanoes, [livejournal.com profile] schrodingersgnu, and [livejournal.com profile] d_aulnoy (and their babies, who conveniently predate ours by six to twelve months) for the many many hand-me-downs they have already given us and will undoubtedly provide more of in the near future. We also received many baby shower gifts of nice neutral white, gray, beige, and yellow baby clothes. Meanwhile, when X and I go out and buy baby clothes, we go straight for the gendered things, e.g., the button-down shirt and sparkly purple shoes, which I bet will look awesome together. It's nice to have options.
