Just wondering if anyone knew of any shops that are selling baby clothing that says something like "I love daddy". I'm thinking of getting a few bits, maybe a mug too for DH's first Father's Day (even tho bubs not quite here... He's getting quite excited that he's going to be someone's 'daddy')

Kmart has onsies & tops that say I Love Daddy (but only in blue) & my sister got me a onesie & socks from a different Kmart that said "I love Mummy /I Love Daddy" that were pink.

I'd leave the "I love Daddy" clothes for when the baby is here, (ie next year) as they look so cute in them.  

I'd be getting him a funny Dad's parenting book maybe, since your baby isn't here yet.
Although, I got DH nothing for fathers day before DD1 was born, as *IMO* he wasn't yet a father.

I know it's not baby clothing but I've ordered my DS dad a Tshirt that says Daddy since 2011 from the Etsy website!

Gap sometimes has them. I think it's a totally cute idea

Found a really cute 'I love Daddy' onesie in a bag of hand me downs given to me by a friend today, it's from Cotton on Baby (who apparently do the best bibs too, I've gotta get over there).  I'm not sure how old the suit is but I think it's this year's.

I ended up getting a cotton on bib that says 'I love dad'. Didn't want to go over the top as the baby isn't here yet, but I did want to get something as it has been a tough road to fall pregnant and DH is super excited :) He loved it.
