If you’ve never had a baby before, there are a lot of things to worry about. From food, to care, to managing your sleep they are emotionally charged rides. Baby clothing shouldn’t be a worry, but you do need to take some tips into consideration when it comes to buying baby clothes.
Deciding whether the little bundle of joy will need a set of baseball onesies or a few cute dresses is one thing to consider, but also be sure to think about the future. First, many gifts from well-meaning friends will give you clothes fit for a newborn. These might seem cute at first, until three months later when the baby starts growing and the clothes stop fitting.
So, as you are getting the newborn clothes, don’t be afraid to ask for some older clothes too, that way you are covered for the next few months. It’ll save you time, stress, and money and you’ll need all the help you can get in those departments with a baby on the way!
Keep in mind where you live when it comes to finding baby’s clothes, because getting them a sweater in a place where it never snows isn’t practical at all. If you know they will be facing a cold January in a few months, then stock up on warmer clothes. The same goes for if they will be in warmer months. While cute outfits and dresses aren’t a bad thing, they also need to be paired with some more practical attire.
Finally, buy a wide range of baby clothes and don’t be afraid to spend a little less money, chances are they will be stained or otherwise destroyed anyway as your baby grows and makes the messes that all babies make. So, buy those onesies in bulk!
