    NOOOO my kid will not wear heels or a bikini. She can wear swimming trunks and no shirt when we go to the beach or pool but that’s only until she turns about 3.

    Let kids be kids. Let them run around in the mud and outside without worrying about society and gender expectations. Dress up is fun, but I’ve seen little 3 year old girls who refuse to leave the house without “doing their hair and face” and needing to get a new mani/pedi…its disgusting and unacceptable.

    The ‘heels’ aren’t meant to be walked in. They are for crawling babies. But I totally agree that we are oversexualizing our infant daughters way to early. It disgusts me to see things like toddlers and tiaras, and string bikinis, and mini skirts on babies. Sorry but my daughter will be in a one piece, or at least a tankini til shes a teenager. Call me old fashioned, but I don’t agree with flaunting a babies goods, and I feel thats all skimpy clothing does. Not appropriate

    my daughter found a pair of heels her size in payless at 15 months and asked me, more like begged for them. we use them for special occasions or when shes wearing a dress. And as for the bathing suit she has a zebra print two piece(not string) and she LOVES wearing it she also choose this. I’m teaching my daughter it is okay to wear whatever you want as long as she does it correctly with class. you don’t teach your child simple life things once “they are old enough” you teach them young so they know and understand when that time comes.

    I totally agree with this woman. Not only does it look better to have your baby dressed like a baby (covered up), they grow up so fast already why would you want to rush it.

  8. No way… It is cute to dress a little boy up like a man but not a little girl like a woman. Biased I know but there is nothing “cute” about a baby dressed like a woman.

    stupid clothes for babys

    "Fashionable or fad"

    How about seuxalizing minors? dressing them up for the pedophiles. How about child abuse? Dress up is one thing but this goes beyond that.

    Kids love to play dress-up, yes. But that doesn’t include heavy make up designed for only one purpose, to make the child look like a sexual adult. Shows like Toddlers and Tiaras and others like it are nothing more than a pedophile’s wet dream. These families that do this to their kids are nothing more than exploiters and are unfit for parenthood.

    Good interview and comments. I linked from an ad in the middle of an article and comments about a mom who has been convicted of 8 felony counts on child porn, sexually exploiting her 14 year old daughter including planning, transporting and filming her being sexually assaulted by two men on different occasions, and performing oral sex on the girl herself. One film was "a keepsake video of her daughter losing her virginity" according to the FBI analyst. The mom is a lawyer (soon to be disbarred).

    One reinforcement on inappropriate dress. No one should wear heels as high as is currently fashionable. I’ve taken care of many women who wore them in the 40’s and 50’s and regretted doing it. They are very bad for the skeleton, starting with the feet. A child’s developing foot should be in well fitting, supportive shoes that allow proper alignment and movement all the way up the developing body.
    Having raised a boy and girl, now 32 & 28 – doing very well, let them choose what they are comfortable wearing- as long as it is not inappropriate. Forcing them to conform to your preferences just sets you up for clothing fights. Encourage independence so they don’t become psychologically hung up and financially over invested in fashion. My daughter especially appreciates the freedom. Honor engineering student at a nationally ranked university, accepted into a 130 year old professional engineering society two years ago.

    Mothers dressing their babies up like whores. How disgusting and repugnant.

  20. Robert says:

    Hey…let’s dress our little babies up like whores so people look at them like objects. How freaking stupid can these mothers be?

  21. I’ve never seen baby high heels…and I am glad.

    Now toddlers seem to be very much into dressing up, be it like cowboys, army guys, princesses, or what not. I think both my kids have or had a supply of given ‘dress up’ clothes for their romps of dress up time. Little high heals included. However it was for DRESS UP TIME. It was never worn outside, unless it was on the patio to invade the incoming army, or walk down the ‘runway’. My niece has several pairs that she clomps all over the house in. However, no one should ever buy these things as anything other then that, toys. Taking children out in these things as regular clothing, parading them around in these things is just wrong. It should be stopped. My mil entered my daughters name into a child’s beauty contest and I warned her do it again and you will never see the child again. It should NOT be allowed. We can build up the self esteem of our young women without making them trashy sex symbols by the age of 3

    I am not trying to judge, but this article was about baby wear. Would you dress a baby boy in a dress? While I am not against a boy who has decided that he wishes to wear a dress, that is after all his decision and there is nothing at all wrong with that. However when they are small baby’s clearly in the infant/toddler stages, would you make the decision to dress the boy in a dress? I fear that would run a huge risk of not just getting the boy stigmatized but run a huge risk of confusing him in the realm of being gay or straight, as well as running a huge risk of having your parenting questioned.
