Do I really need that many clothes for my baby?

For my minimalist mamas, do I reeeeally need that many clothes for my baby? (Im currently 2 days late from my due date, still no baby & just reorganizing her dresser) Do babies get their clothing that dirty that often? 😅 i have so many clothes from her baby shower...too much. I mean if she’s good with chilling in her diaper all day (if the temperature safely allows of course), I’m cool with that! Any advice here?

For the first few weeks all mine just wore onesies and cardigans. The middle child as so bad for explosive poops. It’s only when they got to weaning stage I had to change so often

For the first 4 months my daughter lived in zippered footie pajamas. But we went through a few a day sometimes because of blow outs. Not that she’s 8 months she doesn’t go through as many outfits. But the need for different styles of clothes (rather than footies) is there.

I think it depends on the kid. Blowouts and puke/reflux seem common but luckily my first didn’t do a lot of either. I didn’t have to start changing him more frequently until he was maybe 8 months because of eating purées and new foods.

It’s easy to go with little when you have a washing machine and dryer at home but if you’re planning on doing any travelling for longer I found I needed to purchase some additional clothing just before we left.

All I used the firs 3 months were white onsies, swaddle blankets, and sleep Sacks. 10 onsies, 5 sleep Sacks, 5 swaddlers. As she got older I still only need like 10 outfits. I dont put the in dresses. It makes it harder for the baby to learn to crawl and walk. In my opinion.
