How to save money

There's a few things to think about when you have a little one on the way, but it's important to enjoy those precious pregnancy moments before the big arrival. So, to plan ahead and keep the stress to an absolute minimum, here are several ways to save money and get ready for your little bundle of joy:

  1. Start saving early: The earlier you start saving, the more time you have to set aside money for expenses for those one-off purchases like pushchairs and car seats, as well as everyday essentials such as clothing, and nappies. You can do this by setting a savings goal and making a plan to reach it, such as setting aside a certain amount of money each month to go into a "pregnancy pot".

  2. Take advantage of hand-me-downs: Little ones grow quickly, and they outgrow clothes, shoes, and other bits in no time. It's always great to reach out to family and friends with older children to see if they have any gently used items they no longer need. This can save you a lot of money in the long term plus, prevent these items going to landfill - a win for you, and the planet!

  3. Consider cloth nappies: Disposable nappies can be expensive when the cost adds up and they're really not great for the environment. Cloth nappies and wipes are a cost-effective and eco-friendly alternative. Plus, our range of cloth nappies and wipes are all made with little one in mind too, so you know only the best materials are used on their skin.

Tips on what to buy

The basics

When it comes to nesting in your nursery, there are some basics that you need to consider. Think items like a crib mattress, bedding set, changing area, and storage for all their nappies and clothes.

You’ll want to make sure that these items are safe and comfortable for your baby - but also affordable for you. To do this, make sure to look for items that come with great reviews from other parents.

Invest in quality items

It can be tempting to buy lower priced items when planning for your upcoming baby - but remember, quality matters here! If you invest in quality items now, they will last longer and be more comfortable for your little one once they arrive.

High-quality products offer you peace of mind and longevity, which is the ultimate goal especially when it comes to bigger parenting purchases like pushchairs and furniture. Many high-quality pieces come with warranties or guarantees so if something does go wrong you can rest assured that it’s covered. This also is great if you're looking to grow your family, as these items can be used again and again with little ones on the way!

So don’t be afraid to splurge a little bit on those must-have items; it will all be worth it in the end when your little one is sleeping soundly in their safe and comfortable bedside crib set or gliding over the bumps and curbs in their robust pushchair.

Don't forget about the essentials

When planning for your 2024 bundle of joy, don't forget about all the other things besides furniture and clothing that will be needed. Things like nappies, wipes, bottles or pumps (if you're planning on breastfeeding), swaddles and sleep aids – all of these add up quickly over time!

Save smart by stocking up on all these necessities during sales events such as our current January sale event so that when the little one arrives you'll be ready to go without having broken the bank.
