In a world where clothes for girls generally come with inspiring slogans about being super-cute or Daddy’s Little Princess, I was ridiculously happy to find these at Asda.
While I’ve never really felt the need to clad my child in clothing that displays her gender to the world, I do want to fill her life with colour and fun and I’ve struggled trying to find clothes for my little girl that I like.
It seems like there are three kinds of baby in the world – pink, blue or grey.
I don’t want to label her a Mermaid in Training, Future Supermodel or Not Allowed To Date Ever, or Cute As a Button.
Before I get angry messages from people telling me to grow up, it’s important to me that when she’s older she can look back at photos of herself and know I did everything I could to raise her to be strong, independent and to have big dreams.
I get at three months, my little girl can’t read and she doesn’t care what colour her clothes are, but I don’t want to label her a Mermaid, Unicorn, Future Supermodel, Not Allowed To Date Ever, or Cute As a Button.
Blue stuff comes with robots, monsters and dinosaurs, pink stuff with bunnies, rainbows and flowers. Grey stuff is so dull and neutral it hurts.
It’s so refreshing to see some fairly badass slogans for your tiny but mighty daughter.
And that’s why I love these bodysuits from good old George at Asda. Admittedly, they are pink but they aren’t frilly or floucey and it’s so refreshing to see some fairly badass slogans for your tiny but mighty daughter.
Thanks to feminism, social media pressure and parents who don’t want to pigeon-hole their children, these days clothing companies are a bit more savvy abcout what they print on kids clothes.
It’s fab to see places like George at Asda bringing out bodysuits like this – and I hope that more places follow their example.
I also hope that one day, suits like this will be the rule, not the exception.
Till then, if you’re looking for bigger things than unicorns for your little girl – and on a budget, too – it was £8.50 for – get your ass down to Asda.
