Default Why does my newborn have to wear a yellow outfit when going home from the hospital? – 12-21-2008, 01:32 PM

My aunt insisted that I bring a yellow outfit for my newborn to wear when going home from the hospital. I asked her why and she said because it’s good luck for the baby to wear yellow. Does anyone know where this superstition came from? My aunt is Mexican, so could this superstition possibly come from Mexico?

What??!!! I dont think so! One of my favorite things to do was to buy the outfit my kids went home in. Pick it out ahead of time. I put them in super cute dresses (which I know is ridiculous because we are just going home). They later wore the dresses to church. I have no idea about the yellow. But the baby is yours and can wear whatever you want!

It’ll be something to do with the fact that you are not taking the child or its sex for granted..yellow is for both boys and girls….its a bit of a weird one and I have never heard of it but I eould get a yellow outfit as your aunt will only worry otherwise and yellow is nice!

I’ve never heard of this. I’m a NICU RN that sends babies home all the time from all different cultures (hispanic included) and this has never been an issue. I think you are right, it’s probably something from her upbringing. Bottom line, it’s your baby and you can put on whatever you like on your baby. Good luck&congratulations!
