The daily duties of being a parent can be a bit over whelming at times and the last thing you want to think about is trawling through the shops looking for baby clothes.
Here are some handy tips to make your next shopping trip a calm and enjoyable experience. Our tips will help you to become more money savvy aswell as help you look for clothing items that will save you time and cause less stress for your baby when it comes to dressing them.
1. Take advantages of the sales
Plan ahead and take advantage of the sales to prepare for the next season. This will save you quite a bit of money but don’t go overboard! You need to be able to store these for the next 6 months so remember to think about storage space.
2. Does your baby need designer?
Having a designer dress for your little girl or a smart designer blazer for your little boy can be appealing but you don’t need to fork out for basic t-shirts, vests or tights. Create a mixture of high street labels and designer goods and you’ll have the same impression if you paid full price!
3. Have a variety of ‘basics’
Having a collection of basic t-shirts, vests and tights etc. in a variety of colours creates the foundation for your little ones wardrobe. For a little boy partner the basic white t-shirt and jeans and style the outfit up with a colourful hoody. For a little girl opt for the basic long sleeve top and tights and layer over with an embroidered denim dress. Having a collection of basics helps to create different outfits daily and isn’t so harsh on the pennies.
4. Opt for larger sizes
You’ll notice your little ones grow fast and there’s nothing worse than having a draw full of clothes that are too small. For a little boy opt for a larger size in trousers, you can roll the legs up at first and lower them throughout his growth spurts. Again this can be repeated with your little girls trousers and dresses.
5. Stretchy waist bands and necks
We’re all drawn to stylish zippers, buttons and embellishments but do they make your job any easier when you’re dressing your baby? Stretchy waist bands and neck holes make the process much easier and causes less stress for you and your baby.
