Tip of the Week

When purchasing baby clothing, here are a few things to consider in regards to safety and economics: Buy big (unless your baby was born prematurely, he or she will outgrow baby clothing rather quickly) Look for flame-retardant pajamas and clothing to assure your baby's safety Try to find snaps in the crotch area for easier diaper changes Avoid baby clothing that is tight around the neck, arms or legs (not only can this be a safety hazard for your baby, but it is also uncomfortable) Scrutinize baby clothes for loose buttons or long ribbons and strings, as they are potential choking hazardsWatch for discount sales, peruse baby consignment and thrift stores, check out local and online clothing outlet stores

* Buy ahead of time. If you see clothing for older babies on sale, buy it now and buy it in bulk. Keep the receipts and tags on until needed, in case the clothes don't work out for some reason. All of these tips will end up saving you significant money in the future.
