5 Tips for Buying Baby Clothes

Maybe you've just given birth. Maybe your littlest bundle of joy is still on the way, but you want to get a head start when it comes to picking out their wardrobe. Whatever your reasons for thinking about baby clothes, here are just five tips for only buying the best!

1. Buy Bigger Sizes

Your baby will grow more rapidly than you expect. Unless you're happy with only getting one or two "wears" out of a particular outfit, you'll want to buy a size bigger than you actually need. This will also come in handy when diapers require additional room under their clothes.

2. Consider Diaper Access

Speaking of diapers, it's important to look at every outfit through the lens of an eventual change. If you'll need to unzip, unstrap and unbutton a dozen different things to tend to your baby's needs, it's not a very practical outfit.

3. Layer It Up

Layers will be your best friend when it comes to dressing your baby. Since they'll start fussing if they get too hot or too cold, layers will allow you to regulate their body temperature without changing their entire outfit. If they get chilly, just add another layer. If they get warm, just remove one.

4. Start a Swap

It's easy to blow your entire budget on baby clothes. If you're thrifty, however, you can find or create a swapping event in your community where moms get together to share gently-used baby clothes. It can save you a ton of money in the long run!

5. Have Fun

Do you love football? Look into baby sports clothes so that your tot can proudly wear your team's favorite colors. Do you enjoy pop culture? There are onesies with all kinds of characters and movie quotes on them. Don't be afraid to have a little fun with your baby's wardrobe. They can't complain!


These are just a few tips for buying baby clothes that are both fashionable and functional. If you want your little one to be just as stylish as mommy and daddy, use these suggestions to make it happen!
