There're some seasoned parents who swear by buying a few sizes bigger and those who insist on buying well-fitted, and branded clothing to pamper their little one, because, they want to give the best to their kids.
So, who's right?
For new or to-be parents, very often than not, the increase in expenses for a child is often phenomenal. They often have to worry about other purchases like housing or car loans. Children grow up really fast.
Just how do we plan our budget wisely in terms of clothing for children?
1. Invest in long unisex pants
Onesies may look cute, but our top pick is to choose long pants with enough allowance in the leg hole. When the baby is little, you can choose to do a roll-up look which still looks fashionable and trendy. Simply roll down when your little man or little lady grows taller and bigger! ^^
2. Get spaghetti-strapped dresses which made of stretchy material and of babydoll cutting
Go a few sizes up and tie a knot on the straps so that it will fit your little princess, simply readjust the knot when she grows taller! Stretchy material and babydoll styles ensures a longer shelf life for the dress since it would still look fitted, but have enough allowance when your child grows bigger.
3. Pick long sleeved jersey tee-shirts over short sleeved fitted ones
Same logic as the long pants, you can always roll up the sleeves and go for a smart, casual laid back look. Remember to buy a size or two bigger so that the sleeve trunk can fit your kid when he or she grows bigger! Jersey tee-shirts tend to be more stretchy and well ventilated so your child will be comfortable running around wearing these.
4. Pick tee-shirts/blouses which are longer in length
This will ensure that they won't be too short when your child grows taller! Pick a long empire cut top like this to let your little princess wear it as a dress/ one-piece when little and as a top when she grows a little taller. ^^
5. Buy branded clothing only when they hit 2 and above
Babies tend to outgrow their onesies and clothing really quickly in the first 2 years, they still grow rather quickly after 2 but at least if you follow tips 1-3, the clothes should last them till 5-6 years old.
Or, simply buy designer-inspired clothing from stores like Babeetown which ensures pocket friendly stylish pieces with quality.
