Baby Bachelorette Chic! Ali Fedotowsky-Manno Shares Her Mini Must-Haves for Daughter Molly
But cuteness doesn't mean sacrificing practicality: "In those first few months, the comfort and ease of putting something on is super essential!" adds Fedotowsky-Manno, giving an exclusive look into her 13-month-old's enviable closet.
"Whether you have a little girl or a little boy, cute hats are such a fun way to dress up any basic outfit!" Fedotowsky-Manno tells PEOPLE.
"That said, not all babies will wear hats (they rip them off)," she explains, "but if you start them very young, they're more likely to keep them on as they get older."
ONE(SIE) AND DONE
"Onesies are the absolute easiest thing to put your baby in, and they tend to be the most comfortable to wear," says Fedotowsky-Manno.
"However, I find regular, plain onesies to be boring, so I absolutely love putting Molly in onesies that have cute little capped or ruffled sleeves."
"A headband bow is much better than a clip bow because many babies don't have a lot of hair, which makes it difficult to use the clip bows," says the stylish mama.
"And let's face it, sometimes it's hard to tell the difference between a boy and girl baby," Fedotowsky-Manno adds of one of her reasons for favoring bows.
FRILLS AND THRILLS
"When people think of cute outfits for little girls, dresses often come to mind. However, Molly just turned 1 and she is still crawling quite a bit," Fedotowsky-Manno says.
"I noticed that every time I would put a dress on her she would end up crying on the floor in frustration because she would get caught up on her dress and get very upset," she adds of why she loves rompers for her little gal on the go.
