Alternative Clothing For Babies

By Kirsten Hawkins

While the concept of "baby tees" has taken on a whole new meaning in the new millennium, some companies have made a real dedication to the original intent of the phrase. Of course there is always the basic "I Love My Mommy" and "Someone in Tallahassee Loves Me" t-shirts, but in keeping with the times, some companies have designed some shirts that really let baby and parent's personality shine through.

Take, for example, Wry Baby, a company that specializes in humorous baby t-shirts. Some of my favorites include "I'M NOT A BOY," "NEW," "SCENTED," and a special twin set that reads, "STOP COPYING ME." There are also onesies that come complete with baby care directions for everything from feeding to carrying.

For the breast feeding baby, there are shirts made in the style of the "I Love New York" shirts that read, 'I Love Big Boobies." A shirt that reads "Blankie, Boopie, or Bottle, Nobody Rides for Free" and features a picture of a tricycle is a nice take-off on a popular bumper sticker that's a little bit more PG rated than it's predecessor.

At Baby Wit, online shoppers can find a wide range of baby and toddler t-shirts. Whether your baby wants to make a political statement, hang out with the cool kids, or just have a cute monkey on his or her shirt, there is something for them here. Here you can find some more controversial t-shirt sayings, like "He Thinks He's My Daddy" or "My Mommy Drinks Because I Cry." There are also some amusing, but more tame shirts for the family set. Shirts like, "Come Closer So I Can Spit on You" and "Been Inside for Nine Months" (in prison suit font) make this site a well-rounded source of baby novelty bliss.

For the most creative parents, there are sites that feature personalized t-shirts for babies. It is also pretty easy to pick up the paint and stencils necessary to create a super-personal look for your newborn fashion plate. So if you think you can come up with something better than "Look, Maybe Someday I'll Be Changing Your Diapers" than get thee to a craft store.

If you're politically minded, mypunkbaby.com, a company based out of Massachusetts, donates five percent of all proceeds to a different charity each month. All shoppers are given a ballot at the end of their checkout to decide which of the highlighted charities will receive the five percent donation for the month. This way, your money is not only helping a good cause, it's helping a good cause that you get a say in deciding.

You can, of course, go with the method of using your baby's clothing as a way to instill the values that you hold nearest and dearest to you, like moral fiber, ethics, and rock and roll. Recently, at a baby shower for a friend who had recently graduated from college, the new mother got a baby t-shirt that had the Guns'n'Roses logo with the words, "Sweet Child O' Mine" printed across it. It's good to know that the next generation will be a good, hearty stock.
