I find it to be so much fun to pick out little clothes for my baby. If you have the ability to make them yourself that is even better because you can design things perfectly as you want them. My mother made my clothes when I was young and sometimes they were pretty cute, and people would ask her where she found such great clothes. New baby clothes can get pricy, and knowing how to find bargains or making them yourself can be very helpful. Here are a few suggestions that will help you determine how to choose the perfect infant wardrobe for your baby.
When you have a new bundle of joy on the way, the first thing you want to do is buy little cute clothes for their arrival. You can get great deals from the sale racks in department stores such as Kohl’s, JC Penny, and Target. They may not be hanging in the front, so look in the back of the children’s clothing department and find the sale rack.
Sometimes you will find up to 80% off and even better. Now there are stores that will sale gently pre-worn baby clothes such as www.trendykids.us that will also buy your pre-worn baby clothes when you are done with them. Check your local area stores for places like this that will have nice baby clothes that are still in great condition at a great price.
What will you need?
You won’t need a lot for a newborn. Having at least seven onesies and some baby t-shirts will do just fine for those first few months. Having multiple diapers on hand is where you should spend most of your budget. Depending on your life style and location, choose clothes that will keep the baby comfortable at all times. If you are in a cold climate buy warm clothes made of non-allergenic materials. If you are in a warmer climate dress your baby in cool cotton clothing that can be easily machine washed. You must expect to have spills and accidents, so buy machine washables no matter what you choose. As long as you have a few bibs and blankets around, the baby wardrobe is not that complex.
Remember that you may have friends and family that will be giving you a baby shower, so keep that in mind before you go out and buy anything. Wait and see what type of gifts you will receive so that you don’t buy the same things for yourself. This will save you time and money. If you have a baby register, make sure that you fill it with things that you want and need for your baby. Add practical items that your baby will actually use like diapers, onesies, blankets, and strollers. By the time I was ready to welcome my own baby into the world, the only thing that I personally bought was the diapers and a special onesie that he wore home from the hospital.
