Dress Your Baby Up For Thanksgiving - Baby's First Thanksgiving Outfit

Your baby's first Thanksgiving may be the first time he or she spends time with family members who only travel for the holidays, so lots of photos are sure to be taken. Be sure your little turkey is looking good in a special baby Thanksgiving outfit - or, knowing how often you might change your little one, maybe pick up two!

This adorable Turkey Day outfit is made of 100% soft cotton knit. It features a bright yellow long sleeve shirt with velcro closure on front for easy on/off access, a Pilgrim turkey applique on front, brown pants with velcro closure at waist for adjustable fit, and a matching knotted hat with orange, bright yellow and brown stripes and a pilgrim turkey applique on front. The outfit also comes with orange booties with brown soles, and a receiving blanket too! Give it as a gift or pick it up for your little one!

Thanksgiving Baby Onesies

In addition to a baby Thanksgiving outfit, it's always a good idea to have a few onesies on hand too! These adorable onesies are perfect for the occasion!

Thanksgiving Baby Bibs

Who can forget to pack one - or five - bibs for your baby's Thanksgiving meal? These little cuties are sure to make everyone at your Thanksgiving table smile!

      This article had me reminiscing all my now 40 year-old baby's firsts, not just his first Thanksgiving.

      My brother put the giant leg on my sister's boy's lap on his first Thanksgiving (which was only a few days after he was born). Such a cute photo. I have also seen people take a photo of the baby on the family's Turkey Platter (when it's still clean). If you do this for all the babies in the family, the platter becomes an heirloom (regarless of its value). Traditions are good.
