Are Designer Baby Clothes Worth the Expense?

List: Posted: 02/16/11

If you take a casual glance around at the mall, you will see an adorable array of clothing on display on other people's babies. From cute little animals to red fire trucks and even small suits, there are plenty of great options and styles when it comes to baby clothes.  Best of all, most baby clothes are reasonably affordable, especially in department stores, as they don't use very much material. 

 

The question many parents have when in their local children's clothing store looking at the latest fashions, however, is whether designer baby clothes are really worth the price.

For starters, obviously designer baby clothes will be much more expensive.  Of course the garments usually follow the latest styles and trends and keep your baby looking like he or she belongs on the runway, but is the higher cost really worth it?  The simple fact is that babies change clothing sizes every few months, and most clothing in the early months is little more than a catch-all for drool.  Do you really need to bust the budget on designer baby clothes at this point?  For most parents, the answer is no.

The other question many parents have when it comes to designer baby clothes is what type of message it sends.  Does it tell other parents that you feel your baby is better?  Does it mean dressing your child in uncomfortable clothes just so your friends can see your child looking fashionable? 

 

Receiving designer baby clothes as a gift or buying an outfit for a special occasion is great, but as an entire wardrobe, you might be better off to put the money into a college fund.
