When I was pregnant with my fifth baby, I felt such peace. It was almost weird — I’d worried so much about random things with my other babies, and yet, I had no worries this time. I felt like I was connected with him (although I didn’t know it was ‘him’ yet). It was all very Earth-mother hippie-like.
Part of me wanted to dress my baby more like a hippie, just totally embrace the ‘natural’ ways and show it off to the world. It’s silly, really. But also kind of fun.
That’s why I thought I’d share this. How you, too, can dress your baby like a hippie!
8 Ways to Dress Your Hippie Baby
#1) Wear Nothing At All
This is my 3-year-old’s favorite — and judging from pictures of my friends’ kids in my newsfeed, many of their favorites, too. What’s more natural than your birthday suit?
#2) Keep That Hair Long
For boys and girls alike. We have several friends who have boys with longer hair. There’s just something that screams “hippie” about flowing tresses.
#3) Just the Diaper
A cloth diaper alone — and it’s gotta be cloth — is totally hippie! Bonus points if it’s a flat with a pin, or a prefold with a wool cover.
#4) Activist T-Shirts
Try “I was born at home” or “His body, his choice” or “Vaccine free!” Really, anything you are proud of and want to shout to the world.
#5) Leggings, Leggings, and More Leggings
Sweet little leggings are great for both boys and girls. There are tights-style leggings that go over the diaper, and leg-warmer leggings that only cover the legs. They go great under skirts or as pants!
We got the sweetest little rainbow and cow leggings from Doodle Pants!
#6) All the Colors
Hippies love colors. Use them on babies and enjoy them! Bright rainbow colors are especially awesome. Like our rainbow leggings from Doodle Pants.
#7) Sundresses Galore
For your little lady, all the sundresses. The soft, cotton, play-dress type that looks almost vintage — if you can find it. Boys can get in on the act with long t-shirts or kimono-type outfits!
#8) Keep It Simple
Really, hippie is all about natural and simple. Go with what’s easy — t-shirts, onesies, the cute leggings, soft pants…. It’s perfect! It’s easy! Babies love it.
I was recently introduced to Doodle Pants, which is a WAHM-run business. They make super cute, soft clothes that are specifically made for healthy, natural babies. Their leggings (they don’t even do pants) are cut generously to cover those cloth diapered baby butts.
They are adorable — the outfits above are from them. So is this:
You can see his cloth diapers in the background, and his soft-soled shoes on his feet. Total hippie baby, right? That’s my fifth, and he’s almost a year old now. It’s crazy.
Anyway, Doodle Pants has clothes just for the little ones — from around 3 months to 3T. Caleb is wearing an 18-month body suit and size large leggings in this picture. (Because he’s a Giant Baby. The biggest of my kids.)
The stuff is soft and seems like it’ll hold up well. And it’s adorable, and not heavy on the masculine stuff, and no weird sayings. That’s nice too. Sometimes you just want some plain ol’ animal and nature pictures and not all that nonsense about being handsome or fighting off the ladies…for a baby…amiright?
