Where to Look for Affordable Baby Clothes


Once the newness has worn off a little, you will realize that your baby grows very fast. So fast, in fact, that he may need new clothes on the average of every two months during the first year. The sizing of baby clothes just does not apply to most children. For example, my four month old is now wearing 6-12 month clothes. There is no way he will still be in 6-12 month clothes when he is a year old.

So, we are buying lots of clothes. Unless you know for sure that you are having more kids of the same gender, it does not make sense to drop a lot of cash on designer baby clothes. Sure, they are cute, but can you really afford to spend $25 on a pair of baby pants at Baby Gap when he will need new ones in a month? If you are like me, no, you can't.

How do we make sure our little ones are stylish for less? We shop the sales. We never buy baby clothes at full price from a store like Baby Gap or Osh Kosh. We also go to outlet stores. Our favorite outlet for baby clothes is Carter's.

Discount stores also have some good deals on things like one-pieces and baby play clothes that are going to be trashed anyway. You might even check garage sales and local thrift stores for gently used basics. Wash them in hot the first time if the thought of used baby clothes grosses you out. Look on Ebay for deals on special occasion clothing.

Finally, remember that everybody will think your baby is cute whether she is wearing K-Mart or Ralph Lauren baby clothes. The most important thing is to keep your baby safe, healthy, and loved. A happy baby is a beautiful baby!
