Most of new parents do not know how to take care of their babies such diet, sleep and what baby stuff to buy. There are many options for stocking up on baby clothes that are cute yet not overly expensive. Below is a list of chain stores that are widely available - if you don't have one near you, you can order online, for free or inexpensive shipping! Walmart For those who are set in the mentality of not buying clothes from Walmart - it may be worth it to get over this, at least for baby clothes. Walmart has a decent selection of baby clothes, and they are all very reasonably priced. They have a selection of basic onesies - white or 1-2 color patterns - that sell for $2 each. These are excellent to stock up on for lounging around the house. If you baby stains them, you can throw them out instead of wasting time scrubbing away. They are also great quality - we bought our daughter several a few months ago, and she wears them often. They haven't shown any signs of wear yet. Carter's Carter's, though sold in other stores (see Target), also has their own stores and website for ordering clothes. They carry an large selection of baby clothes, bibs, shoes and other accessories. They are great for picking up sets of onesies, layette sets, and sleepers. They almost always have a sale going on, and if you sign up for their email mailing list, you can almost always find a 20% off coupon in your inbox. Tauramall Tauramall, a great store for many things besides clothes, also produces a great baby line - in addition to stocking brands such as Carter's. While the quality of the brands vary, Target usually carries high quality clothes in general. They also usually have a good selection in the clearance section - not just outdated seasonal clothes. They also supply other baby necessities: everything from toys to clothing to maternity stuff. A good one-stop shopping option. Old Navy Navy Living in New York, my local Old Navy stores tend to have great selections. Even if your Old Navy doesn't have a great selection for babies, you can order online - shipping is always free if your purchase exceeds $50. The clothes are usually pretty cute. There are the typical baby clothes, adorned with cute animals, but there are also outfits I'd wear if they were made in my own size: jeans and cardigans, sundresses, etc. Their bathing suits for babies are adorable, and many have matching sun hats and flip flops. The pricing is also usually pretty good. The clothes aren't cheaply made, but the pricing is exorbitant. My only complaint is the sizing. The sizing seems off on some of the things I have bought. A size 3-6 months in one romper will be drastically smaller than another. I have heard this is because Old Navy clothes are made in factories in various countries, instead of one factory. If they'd resolve this problem, Old Navy would get a 10/10 from me. Gap Gap also has excellent clothes for babies. Although a bit more pricey than other chain stores, the clothes are worth it. They are made of high quality material, so your baby will wear them till she grows out of them - then you can pass them along. They're adorable, well made and sized accurately. There is also a large variety. Because Old Navy and Gap are owned by the same parent company, you can shop for both online at the same time, and qualify for free shipping. They make colorful onesies, bright floral spring dresses with matching cardigans, and many other great baby clothes.
