Somehow Caspian seems to have more clothes than Daddy Long Legs and I put together. I keep explaining this with the fact that he’s growing so fast that I need to make sure we cover the next sizes up. Though I must admit it’s probably more because there are so many cute children’s clothes out there. Before I became a mum I’d sworn I wouldn’t fall into this trap, but as my brain went, along with my bump growing bigger, I couldn’t help myself, and these days Caspian is dressed immaculately while I trot along in leggings and an old jumper covered in baby goo. I tend to favour Scandinavian and British brands and two of my current top choices are Swedish Maxomorra and English Frugi. Both use organic materials and fun prints.

When Caspian was a newborn I shied away from dungarees as I thought they only came in denim, which didn’t sit well on him and certainly didn’t look comfortable in all their stiffness. Once he can run around I might go back to denim, as we have an adorable pair with stars on. Did I mention I stash bigger sizes?!

But then I came across the soft cotton version and fell in love.Β With Caspian now crawling they are the ideal garment for the Autumn and Winter seasons, as nothing gets pulled down or rides up.

Here are three of my favourites from the Frugi and Maxomorra AW collections. You can get them and many others from the blog’s advertising partner Growing Needs.

What do dress your little ones in when it starts to get colder?

Disclosure: Please note we have been sent these dungarees to try out, but was not obligated to write about them. All opinions expressed are my own.

You Baby Me Mummy
Keep Calm and Carry On Linking Sunday


  1. OMG these dungarees are gorgeous!!! Look those colours!! I love them!! Your baby look so cute on them!! Thanks so much for joining me again at #KCACOLS. I really love having you here and reading your posts every week!! I hope you join me again this weekend!! πŸ™‚ xxx

  2. I adore dungarees, they are so gorgeous but so fiddly. Zach doesn’t have any at the moment as I can’t imagine dealing with his need for a wee and having to battle with dungarees but they are just adorable! #TheList

    1. No, if your boy is potty trained I can’t see dungarees being the right thing, however cute they are… practicality must come first πŸ™‚ Thank you for popping over.

  3. Oh I LOVE dungarees! These are all so so cute! I also am buying bigger sizes as there have been some brilliant sales lately, and so many cute clothes. #KCACOLS

    1. I fall victim to the sales as well. But it great to have a nice stash, though at the rate Caspian is growing some of the summer things I’ve bought for next year he’ll be in my Christmas time πŸ™‚

  4. I think dungarees look so cute on young children but their comfort has to come first and i agree with your about denim being quite a harsh material. It’s great that you can buy comfortable and stylish dungarees. I love the idea of knee pads for crawlers! Thanks so much for linking up at #KCACOLS. Hope you come back again next Sunday

    1. Yes, the knee pads are really being put to the test here, and I think it’s a great detail that they have added them in the same fabric. Thank you for helping France co-host. I will definitely be back πŸ™‚

  5. These are so cute! I love dungarees, but agree that denim is often more practical when they’re a bit older and can walk. I found the same with denim skirts and dresses too – they often did not look too comfortable when the girls were babies. You’re right – so much lovely children’s clothes around now, and my kids are way better dressed than me too! #KCACOLS

    1. It’s so funny here’s this clean, well-dressed baby followed by a washed out mum with greasy hair in old clothes… ha ha. Thank you for coming by!

    1. They really are comfy, and end of the day that is the most important thing for me. Babies need to be free to move. Thank you so much for popping over πŸ™‚

  6. Oh I love dungarees! I was so good when my Frey was newborn, I was buying ‘lots’ of baby clothes on Ebay for each age range.. I only spent about Β£25 on everything he had that was 3-6 months. Then I discovered Scandi clothes and all of that went out of the window! I have some amazing Frugi pants and Maxomorra dungarees in the next size up that I can’t wait to dress him in!

    1. Scandi is the killer, haha! Yes, I shopped at charity shops in the beginning and was doing really well on a low budget, and then started buying Scandi…not sure my bank manager is too happy with that πŸ˜‰

  7. I love dungarees for my baby! We have three pairs from John Lewis that are lined corduroy – so cozy.

    My current favourite brand is polarn o pyret as the colours are so fun and lots of things are unisex – my daughters nursery clothes are all POP with the idea that my son will wear them one day.

    But these designs are lovely! Needing to stock up on 6-9 months so will take a look πŸ˜‰

    1. Yes, POP’s great and I love that it’s unisex with exactly that in mind, that it can be passed on from sisters to brothers. Hope you find something you like, happy shopping πŸ˜‰

  8. I also love scandi clothes for their brightness but also because they are just so so comfortable. These are gorgeous clothes and i’ll definitely look out for them when shopping for the kids.
