As a first time mom I’m quickly learning my baby’s needs. The best way to save money is to stick with needs, not wants. Those cute clothes are awesome, but your baby will be out of them before you know it. I can honestly say I’ve only bought 2 outfits at full price and they were 1) Christmas and 2) the outfit we brought Jack home in.
Here are a few items I feel were needs for Jack during these cold winter months.
- N’Ice Caps Little Boys and Baby Sherpa Lined Fleece Winter Hat and Mitten Set (3-6mo, Navy/Royal Infant)“>Baby Winter Hat and Mittens
This hat is great because it covers the ears and neck. The strap provides security needed to ensure your baby doesn’t pull it off. Added bonus: You can use the straps to attach it to your bag. If you lose things as often as I do, you’ll really appreciate it!
2. William Carter Baby Girls Hooded Fleece Jumpsuit“>Fleece Body Suit
Stick with neutral clothes when buying for items like winter body suits, hats, and other outdoor items. You’ll need to keep your baby warm and if you plan on having more kids you’ll be happy you ordered a neutral color. I ordered a size bigger than I thought I’d need because I was sure Jack would have his everyday outfit on under
Cold feet = a cold baby.
While your baby may not be walking, imagine when you’re outside with just your socks on. It’s cold. These booties are great for in the house too. He have tile floor, so when Jack is in his jumper they keep his feet nice and warm.
For a smaller baby try these Zutano Unisex Baby Cozie Fleece Bootie, Gray, 6 Months“>booties
4. JJ Cole Jj Cole Original Bundleme, Infant Graphite“>Winter Car Seat Cover
Okay, winter travel with your baby stinks. Expect extra time to heat the car, bundle up baby, and pack extra blankets for warmth. While a car seat over stinks while you’re strapping in your baby, this has been a life saver! Safety experts recommend not putting your baby in their car seat with a jacket on, this cover is a great compromise.
5. Gerber Infant Boys’ Hooded Micro Fleece Jacket,Blue,6-9 Months“>Fleece zip up
This fleece zip up is a great quick jacket when we run over to Granny’s!
