Some fresh apparel will ensure Junior smells considerably better than the local fauna. We assume you own footwear as well as half of the items listed. Here are some extras you'll have to buy.

$48: 8 T-shirts -- Target
$17: 1 long-sleeved shirt -- Amazon.com
$39: 3 pairs of jeans -- Target
$23: 2 sweatshirts -- Amazon.com
$25: 2 sweatpants -- Gap
$26: 3 swimsuits -- Target
$20: 10 pair underwear -- Wal-Mart
$12: 12 pairs of ankle socks -- Target
