A baby's first birthday is a monumental celebration -- a celebration particularly special for parents, celebrating the end of their first year of rearing the new baby. First-birthday baby outfits should be as special as the celebration, comfortable and easy to put on and take off. Don't think too much about it. Finding the perfect first-birthday outfit is easy, since children look adorable in almost anything they wear.

Get the child's height and weight measurements to determine the perfect size for her first birthday outfit. The children's clothing you find in stores may say that it is for a 1-year-old, but every child is different.
Look for clothing items with the number 1 on them. Browse the Internet and clothing shops. T-shirts, sweaters, dresses and one-piece outfits sometime have the number 1 stitched onto the front. These articles are adorable first-birthday outfits for both boys and girls. They celebrate the first year of the child's life and serve as keepsakes for years to come.
Choose dresses or skirts for little girls. The first birthday is a special celebration, and dressier outfits better suit the birthday girl's party than casual shorts or trousers. Tutus, lace, summer dresses and princess dresses make little girls feel special and pretty, especially when decorated with flowers, ribbons, bows and sparkles. Choose an especially magical dress for a little girl's first-birthday party.
Browse "short-alls" and "long-alls" -- one-piece outfits that incorporate shirt and shorts or shirt and trousers for 1-year-old boys. They do not restrict the boy's movement and are easy to put on and take off. Choose a short-all or long-all of your birthday boy's favourite character or colour.
Design a monogrammed outfit. Beautifully designed monograms can be stitched on any piece of clothing to celebrate the child's first birthday. These are perfect options if you already have a special outfit for the child and want that outfit to be specified to the birthday event. Write the child's name in cursive or print in the font of your choice. You may also choose to have only the initials inscribed or an entire phrase. If you plan to have the outfit monogrammed, be sure to order the work done with ample time before the day of the party.
