It is not uncommon for parents to be, to overbuy on a number of clothes for their new arrival. Parents love to spoil their children and that certainly starts before they are even born. Many parents have a full wardrobe of outfits purchased before their bundle of joy has arrived.
On top of the parents buying clothes for their newborn, they are likely to receive an influx of gifts to welcome the new family member to the world. Most gifts received will be clothing, meaning their wardrobe will be even more bulging than before.
When it comes to buying your newborn their first clothes, you should choose two to three items of clothes as the gifts will make up the rest of what they need. You will soon realise how rapid the little one grows and how quickly they outgrow many items of clothes before they have had a chance to wear them. Save yourself some extra pennies by reducing the number of baby clothes you buy and enjoy your time with your new little baby.
