Dress Your Favorite Child in One of These Cute Valentine’s Day Outfits for Girls
One of the best things about being an aunt for the past 30 years has been buying adorable outfits for my nieces and nephews. Now, all these years later they are adults who are married and are having babies of their own! Even though I have been a great-aunt since I was twenty-five years old (my niece started her family really young), I have never gotten bored or tired of going to the baby department and picking out a gorgeous outfit for the latest family addition to wear. I love shopping for those precious little outfits, as I know all too well how fast they will grow and one day have their own opinions of what they want to wear!
When my three children were infants and toddlers, family members gave them adorable Valentine’s Day outfits for them to wear. I now look back on those pictures and smile at how adorable they all looked-especially my twins in their boy/girl thematic outfits!
With two new babies born in the family in the past two months, and a two more on the way, I have been looking in the baby department to see what I can buy for our family’s latest blessings. Valentine’s Day is fast approaching, and I have my eyes set on a few outfits that would make the perfect gift!

What to Look for When Buying Valentine’s Day Clothing for Girls
Ok, I admit that dressing my children was fun-it was like dressing little dolls! No one spoke back to me about what I chose for them to wear until they could talk and have opinions of their own. I could buy items that I liked, at my own price point, and there were no huffy breaths or eye rolls to contend with.
As a black belt shopper, I did learn several things about how to choose the right clothing for my children, especially, when I received gifts that I would not let my children wear.
Children have different clothing needs depending on their age. Wobbly headed babies should not have anything that has buttons in the back, as they cannot hold up their heads when you try to dress them. Everyone ends up frustrated. Clothing should be easy for Mommy and Daddy to take off when it is time to change their outfits. The quicker you can change a baby, especially when the weather is cold, the better.
Most importantly, when it comes to babies, clothing must be made so it is easy to change a diaper. If an outfit does not fit right on the bottom, it will be a very messy experience for everyone. Then the outfit goes into the laundry hamper and may not be put on the baby again.

For toddlers who are still wearing diapers, outfits should be easy to put on as they typically do not stay still for long. Be aware of necks openings that are too small and pants that are difficult to button. These will lead to a tug of war when you are getting dressed and undressed.
For preschoolers who are now able to use the bathroom on their own, they need to be able to pull pants up and down by themselves. Young children wait until the last minute, and if she is struggling with buttons or snaps, you may wind up changing outfits and the cleaning the bathroom as well. Comfort is also paramount, since preschoolers can (and will) express their comfort level over and over and over until you change them into something that they like.
