Cute baby girl clothes come in all styles, materials and brand names.  If you are buying baby girl clothes new but have a limited budget and want to get a good price, then a few things to be aware of are:

  • – Do not buy high end name brand clothes.  While these clothes are often downright adorable, it costs a lot more to buy something with a famous name brand than it does to buy the exact same item made by a generic name brand, and often, the generic name brand is just as good quality.
  • – Baby clothes featuring famous Disney characters such as Disney Princesses or Winnie the Pooh are likely to cost a lot more than baby clothes with butterflies, flowers, polka dots, stripes, and other generic designs.
  • – Buying clothes by sets is often more affordable than getting individual items.  For example, you can buy a pack with three, five or six baby onesies for a better price than you would get if you were buying the onesies individually.  Socks and Bibs are often also sold by sets too.
  • – Where you buy also affects the price.  Ross offers good deals although what kind of selection they have on baby girl clothes varies from store to store.  Wal-Mart sometimes has some good deals as well.

While there are advantages to buying baby girl clothes new, you can also get some very good deals buying the clothes second hand.  Many discount clothing stores offer baby clothes in all sizes and styles second hand and you can also go to garage sales or check out craigslist.com to find individual sellers offering baby clothes for sale.

If you are buying newborn baby clothes, then these are not hard to get in good condition second hand.  Newborn babies often outgrow their clothes quickly, in fact, many mothers have brand new clothes that they never had a chance to put on their little one, or perhaps the baby has only worn the clothing item or items once or twice.  Buying such items second hand is a great bargain, as then you get new or near new clothes at only a fraction of the price.

Check out any baby clothes you want to buy carefully.  Remember than when buying clothes second hand from an individual, you can not get a refund or return your purchase.  Make sure the clothes do not have breast milk stains, as these do not come out, and make sure they are in good condition and good quality.
