Buying baby clothes on a budget
Congratulations, you’re a mom! If this is your first child you’ll need an entire wardrobe for your little one. If it’s not your first, you’ll still likely need some new items to keep baby clothed. But, as your newborn grows quickly into a toddler, keeping your clothes budget sane is a necessity.
One option for staying on budget is to only buy a minimal number of clothes for the early months. Since you won’t know how fast your child will grow, sticking to the basics from months 0-to-3 or even 3-to-6 months can save you clothing cash in the long run.
Depending on your climate, employing a sleep sack and pairing with a diaper and t-shirt can keep your baby comfortable at night without dirtying yet another set of clothing for sleep. Target offers a variety of sleeping bags and swaddles for baby.
Shopping clearance when you’re able can also save you dollars on basics—which won’t make you so sad when they get ruined or fall apart from excess washing.
