Where to buy baby clothes
We bought most of our daughter’s first clothes from an NCT nearly new sale. If you’re in the UK, I really recommend finding your local branch and checking them out. Everything was very cheap, but hardly looked used. We got loads of bargains! Charity shops are great places to look as well, or your local Facebook sale group.
My favourite places to buy baby clothes on the high street are:
- Pep & Co-really affordable multi-packs of vests and babygros.
- George at Asda-another source of low-priced but good quality clothing.
- Matalan-lots of choice, some adorable designs and good prices.
- Next-on the pricier side, but they have some beautiful outfits and dresses.
- Debenhams-high end fashion, good choice for special occasions. They often have sales. I bought my daughter’s Easter outfit from there.
