I need a homecoming outfit!

i have gone to target, and several other stores, and i can't find anything that i want to bring this baby home in! we only have about 12 weeks left (i know, still some time), but i want to find an outfit to bring him home in asap.

i would love some wool longies (boy), and a matching shirt. if possible.
i also wouldn't mind just a super cute outfit to bring him home in that may not be homemade.

either way, i can afford a little bit, but it wouldn't be for two weeks or so until hubby gets paid.

anyone got anything/know of anything? i am out of ideas/places to look!

eta: i have larger babies. ds3 was 10#1 at birth... anticipating this baby to be in the 8#8 to 10# range as well.

oh man! i've been looking for weeks! i just can't seem to find anything i really want. if i was having a girl, i'd have a million choices! being our fourth boy, i want something 'different' but there just isn't much 'different' for little boys.

Have you tried Etsy and Hyenacart?

That's funny b/c ds1 had an outfit that was given to us at one of our showers (so easy!). For dd, i kept finding cute boy stuff and it was hard to find anything for her but since she was born just before Christmas i went that direction w/ her outfit. Now w/ds2, all I can find is cute girl stuff. Ugh.... So frustrating!

no, i haven't. mainly because i'm afraid that i would find something that i REALLY liked, and then someone else would snag it before i could come up with the money to pay for it. ;( i prefer bigger stores, so that there's plenty to go around, so that i know it is still likely to be there in 2-3 weeks, lol.

yeah. we were told this one was a girl at around 16-17 weeks, so i was becoming overwhelmed looking at all of the girl stuff, rofl. now we know it's a boy (no denying that weenie!) and i can't find anything for the life of me. he won't fit in it long, obviously, so i don't want to spend a boatload of money, but i want something cute. not something that everyone else is going to have, or be taking their baby home in, lol.

Re: I need a homecoming outfit!

I feel kinda bad now because I didn't put DD in a special "coming home" outfit. The clothes I took to the hospital with us didn't really fit and I was so ready to get out of there when we were discharged that I didn't even care! She wore a tie-dyed onesie and purple babylegs and a jacket. Cute, but nothing special. I guess just be the first of many things I will do differently with future kiddos and she'll look back and pics and say, Why did you dress me in that? LOL

I've got some yarn that would be great for newborn longies and some connections to good shirt makers to make a custom outfit if you are interested. Check out my siggy for yarn options.

This was me, because dd surprised us 5 weeks early on Christmas morning and 3 days before my baby shower no less! Was waiting till after baby shower to see what we got. I didn't even have hospital bag packed yet!

OP good luck. There's a lot of cute things on hyena cart that have been sitting for some time, I bet as soon as you get the money you could look and find something fast.
