It sure is lovely to look at babies who are wearing cute and fancy clothings. People around you will be able to notice the cuteness of your baby and his fashion. It would seem as though it gives us pride and make us feel proud as parents. But today, let me tell you something that may change your outlook towards that. We will discuss the down side of spending too much on baby’s clothes. Let’s see if these facts outnumbers the benefits that there on this matter.
Babies grow about 1/2 to 1 inch monthly and doubles his birth size by the time he reaches 5months old. Imagine, if you spend so much on his newborn clothes when in fact he doesn’t spend so much time in going out, there is a possibility that he’ll just be able to wear his clothes once or twice (or never) before he outgrows them. In a blink of an eye, they can no longer fit the clothes they once used to look good into.
•Little Kids Can be Messy Too
Imagine going into a very important birthday party. Of course, here’s your little one looking so gorgeous in his suit and tie. But then, he innocently touched the icing of the cupcake on the table and got it messed all over his clothes. That ruined your plan for a picture-perfect event.
It takes so much attention to keep your baby 100% tidy especially by the time they start moving around, grabbing whatever will caught their curiousity. Instead of getting something expensive for your baby to wear, opt for those that are comfortable. I’m not saying you shouldn’t buy expensive clothes for your baby, but it’d be more worth it if you spend just right for it.
•Expensive Clothes Doesn’t Guarantee Best Quality
Being a mom of two, i realized that the clothes i bought for lower price tends to last the same as those that are expensive. Sometimes, the price of the clothes isn’t really an assurance that it is of best quality and durability. Sometimes, it matters on how well you have taken care of those clothes too.
•Save for What’s More Needed
Let’s say you bought your baby a tux that priced trice more than the cute formal attire you saw in the mall. Don’t you think it would be better if you buy him the formal attire and use the extra money to buy shoes and socks that would complete his OOTD? Well, it’s all about practicality. But if you can really afford to have it all, then why not.
•Compare Prices From Different Sellers
Let’s say you saw a baby dress that really caught your attention and you have your mind and heart set for it already no matter if it’s quite expensive. Wait, don’t rush in buying it right then and there. Try to look online or from other stores and boutiques for the same item and see who has the most affordable price. It sure is time consuming but if you are really after for the best outcome, then here you go, well done!
Sure thing, mommies would really want to provide what would be best for their little one even if that means we’d be spending a little more. But for me, it will be wiser to save your extra money to for the educational toys and learning materials that will be more valuable for the baby’s future. Yet, if you have saved more than enough and you really want to spend the money to buy your little one expensive clothes, then that doesn’t make you any less than any other mom. If you think that’s best for you and your baby, then go for it with no regrets.
