I’m 19, have no kids, not expecting any for quite a while but I find baby clothes so cute. Is it weird to start collecting them even if you don’t have any?

Edit: since people think I’m a weirdo (I promise I’m not). I’m a girl and plan to have kids soon but not now of course, and wanted to start buying baby clothes in preparation and store them away for when I actually need them, but I guess everyone interpreted this very differently lmao, I promise I’m not like a creep who has some kinda baby clothing fantasy/fetish, I just want kids someday, that’s it.

Does give off some Norman Bates vibes for me personally if you don't have nor are planning to have children soon...

Not if you have a lot of interest in fashion, plans to work within the babywear industry or are in the habit of starting collections of different things (stamps/postcards/recipe books/movie memorabilia).

But if you are in the habit of collecting either wedding dresses or babywear- keep it quiet and ensure that the collections remain out of sight to visitors.
I know a few single models who collect wedding dresses but have never been married or engaged.
Their wedding dress collections are massive, with some beautiful items by very expensive designers but the atmosphere of the room where the collection is stored feels very weird.
I try to avoid visiting because it can be quite creepy.

It’s weird unless you’re collecting them because you plan to have kids soon and think they would cute on them

It’s sad to collect them if you’re only pining for it but have no plans or real prospects. Like the wedding dress thing someone else mentioned

Depends on how others interpret it. Do your own thing, I don't think it's weird. Just don't try putting them on and you're good.

I know lots of people who make baby clothes because they think they're cute (and quick, and don't need large quantities of materials) - I've done it myself when I didn't actually have a baby to wear them. Most people who do this donate them to hospitals or charities.

It's also not a million miles from people whose hobby revolves around those "reborn" dolls.

Weird? Not any more than any other collecting hobby. A bit unusual maybe.

Don’t care enough to formulate an opinion. Seriously, just do whatever you want and enjoy.

I don't think it's weird. I find baby clothes extremely cute too, and would probably buy them myself, but that would just be a waste of money for me, so I don't. You do you.
People collect the most random things anyway.
