Before my first baby was born, I remember thinking I would dress him up in the cutest outfits all the time. After he arrived, I quickly realized that many of those extra special clothes I bought him would only be worn for certain extra special occasions.

With all of the spitting up, pooping, drooling, nose-dripping, and messy eating babies do, it’s honestly a miracle any of his baby clothes made it through unstained. I wish I could say I learned from the experience, but when I found out my second baby was a girl, I once again went a little too far with the cute outfits.

Some special occasions and holidays warrant breaking out the fancy baby outfits, and your baby’s first birthday seems like one of those extra special moments. If you ask me, this is as much a celebration of the baby as it is of the parents for making it through the first year.

If your little one’s first birthday is coming up—or if you just like planning ahead—below are 23 of our favorite first birthday outfits and accessories.
