How much will you spend on baby clothes?

I am now 28 weeks pregnant and am excited to say that I finally purchased my first baby girl dress!

This is actually the one any only clothing item I have purchased for my soon to be baby girl thus far. Mainly because I have a hard time finding clothes I like and I have even more difficulty spending money on clothes that could be ruined in a second (by a killer diaper explosion) or become too small in a matter of months.

With my first, I mostly bought clothes second hand, or on sale from target or old navy. I made a couple more expensive purchases on little sweaters from Baby Gap, but I sort of felt like they were a waste of money because my little guy outgrew them within a month or two.

How do you decide what to spend money on when it comes to baby clothes?


  1. I think that I would never splurge on baby clothing as some people do. They grow so fast and it won't suit them in a month or I would go fairly cheap or secondhand, like you did.

    But this is a cute dress, by the way!

  2. If it's from target, I pretty much don't look at the price tag because how bad could it be right? If it's from expensive stores then I just hit up the sales. I never really spend more than $20-ish per article of clothing and that's on the high end.

  3. oh soo tough...b/c it is so easy to shop for girls!!

    Well I lucked out in the fact that my sisters only have needless to say they are always buying clothes for my daughter...

    I never splurged on baby clothes b/c you are so right they grow out of them sooooo fast...! Skirts are the way to go...b/c you can wear them in the summer and in the colder months with tights...I always buy a little big and off season you can get clothes at the children place for 2.00 online if you buy for the following season :)

  4. Ohgosh, does that dress come in adult sizes as well? It's too precious!

  5. It was 20 years ago now but after I had the scan and found out I was expecting a girl (I was about 18 wks pregnant) I raced off to celebrate by buying a little pink dress. It was so exciting. My sister had boys so I had no hand me downs.

  6. We were truly blessed when we had our kids a lot of members of our ward gave us clothes. We got some great hand me downs and having a big family with lots of cousins also helped. Oh I also shop when winter hits for summe clothes and vice versa.

  7. I personally would not go to overboard on expensive baby clothing. However, saying that, i would spend for the special occasions.


  8. Poor Claire, I didn't buy one single thing for before she was born. Soon after she was born we got a few gifts and lots of awesome hand me downs. So really...I spend next to nothing on my kids clothes. I do usually get a few pair of jeans for each one at the beginning of the season. That dress is darling!!!

  9. WOW!

  10. Nice post. That's very imported that the cloths that your baby wear is comfortable. Because baby skin is very sensitive, so we have to choose baby cloths very carefully.

  11. You have provided a very good collection and best designs to knowing about kids clothing and Outfits. These clothes will make your baby more lovely and fashionable. Also it will make your baby shimmer and shine. Now a days it is very popular for its good quality

  12. My rule of thumb is usually on average $3 per item. My favorite thing to do is to go to a twice yearly consignment sale where I can get clothes for the next six months all at once. Usually I find that I may pay more for jeans, sweaters or jackets (I have a boy) but that little shirts, onesies, etc. will come in under the $3 mark so it will average out. Kelly
