I love clothes. There are so many gorgeous things around, and who doesn’t want to look nice? My wardrobe is full to bursting. But, I’m a baby – I am a messy eater, I’m sometimes sick, I like to play with Hairy Dog and I enjoy digging in the garden. So sadly, a lot of my things get spoiled.
With that in mind, I don’t understand designer baby clothes. £25 for a Dior bib?! £100+ for a single baby-grow?! Why on earth would you do that? I could get through £1,000 worth of kit every day!
Even if you have an unnaturally clean baby and a gifted eater, you still won’t be using the kit for long enough to get any decent wear out of it because we grow so quickly – a T-shirt for a 0-3 month old baby is never going to get a chance to grey or wear. It’ll just take up space in the drawer.
Saying that, if you’re dressing your little one in Ralph Lauren, you probably have one or two wardrobes. And someone to slave away on the bib with the stain-remover.
Give me my supermarket own-brand multi-pack any day.
