Barbie my baby for Easter

7 Apr

A true Barbie my baby post today based on a little bit of Easter shopping. The trip started out of a need to get the babe’s feet measured. We have been through this experience once before and it was lovely but for some reason today she was not happy. A child of mine not enjoying shoe shopping, very worrying! They had barely started measuring before the wailing began and not a tantrum, proper crying. I am told this may have been because she had her MMR this week and it’s made her a bit nervous of strangers… Let’s hope that all it was.

Anyway the shopping results are below. Most importantly properly fitted but also patent for easy cleaning and white to go with everything for the summer.


The babe is at a bit of a tricky age clothing wise. At just one she is growing out of a lot of her 9-12 month clothes but is too small for 12-18 months. Trousers are the main problem. I find H&M sizing quite small so managed to find her jegging type skinny jeans that came in pastels as well as regular denim. £5.99 bargain!


H&M also came through on this very cute Beatrix Potter tee which solves a mid seasonal problem. Long sleeved tees are hard to get a hold of for the summer season so very useful at £2.99.


I have posted earlier in the week that I thought I had solved the babe summer footwear dilemma with some very lush baby Converse. They were very lush but they were too small and not very supportive hence the trip to Clarks. I did have a hankering for baseball boots though so I couldn’t resist these little beauties.


I have just looked at the preview of the post and realised that I am somewhat pink heavy! Oh well, she is a little girl and at least everything goes together! I have checked the H&M website and all this is available there. The baby shoes are on the Clarks website too although they do recommend fitting in store. (The babe had to try three pairs to get a good fit so worth it I think!).
