I too remember my experience, when I was pregnant with my first child, I bought every category clothes. I bought scary costumes, funny baby clothes, superhero outfits, tons of onesies, homecoming boy outfits, shirts. Believe me, I could open my own baby clothing brand with all those baby clothing stock.

Post your child’s clothing is made up of cotton, which acts as an excellent cleaning agent. You can also jeans for the tight scrubs cleaning.

If someone in your family or friends expecting a baby, you can pick out, well in shape, and brand-new looking onesies to gift them. You can especially categorize each onesie that it looks creative and impressive and they will admire the effort you have made in it. You can be categorized Before gifting it to them as funny baby onesies, sleeping baby onesies, nerdy onesies, superhero onesies, or any other category you have in your baby’s wardrobe.

  • Create Halloween Costumes!

Halloween costumes are all about being creative with your dress. You can save money and your time by recreating your own baby’s Halloween costumes for your little one. 

  • Donate Them!

This one is my personal favorite. There are many kids out there who can not afford to buy clothes, so it will consider a great deed and gesture, if you think about those and make sure to donate all your child’s old clothes to the one who will take care of them, and value even more than you do. By donating you will be helping little ones to be in comfort and warmth.
