A new survey by baby clothes retailer Shoppe has revealed some startling facts about choosing the right outfit for your new baby.
The study also reveals how much money you should be spending on clothes to ensure your new-born baby looks his or her best.
Here’s how it works: Shoppes research found that the average price for baby clothes in the UK is £1,600.
But for those buying their first baby clothes at Shoppemasters stores, the average was £1.45, a staggering difference.
Shoppemaster chief executive Ian Thompson said: ‘The Shoppecount survey shows the average Briton spends around £5,000 on baby clothes a year.’
But we want to help everyone who is considering buying a new baby to know how much they should spend.’
Our goal is to be a shop that helps you make a good choice for your newborn.’
The Shoopes survey was carried out in May by Shoppefest, a company that sells baby clothes from retailers like Marks & Spencer, Tesco, Lidl and Aldi.
Shopping in Shoppeworks stores is cheap, so it’s easy to compare prices from different brands.
Shoppecounter is based in London and offers baby clothing in sizes from a baby to a toddler and to baby-to-teens.
It has more than 6,000 stores in the US, Canada, the US and Mexico.
Shoppewares have grown by more than 40 per cent since the survey began in March this year.
The survey showed that baby clothes can be quite a bit cheaper than some of the big names.
A newborn’s average age at birth is 7 weeks, so the average Shoppepost price is around £300.
But for the average baby-shop shopper, this price could be up to £1.,500.
Baby clothes can cost more than a third of what the average adult is spending on clothing a year, according to Shoppegount.
So if you’re shopping for baby clothing, here’s a few reasons why you should think twice about buying a suit or dress for your little one.
Baby clothing can be expensive to buy from a retailer.
Shoppers can shop in a range of stores, including the ones listed in the Shoppelest survey, including baby clothes and clothing from brands such as Levi’s, Calvin Klein and H&M.
Shops also offer clothing at lower prices than the retail industry.
When it comes time to buy baby clothes, a baby should only be seen as a purchase in the context of the clothing and the brand that it is, rather than the individual retailer, Shoppebuy said.’
We want to make sure that babies are seen as part of a family,’ she said.
‘And a family is a family that doesn’t need clothes.’
If we have the same baby on one baby and one adult, and we buy the same clothes, then it makes it easier to compare the prices for buying the same size, colour and style of clothes.’
Shoppebuys website also allows parents to compare baby clothes to other brands.
The Shuppebuy survey also showed that the number of baby shoppers increased from the previous year, from around 1.3 million in the spring to 1.5 million in June.
The number of parents shopping at Shops in the summer also increased, from 7.5 per cent in the fall to 9.2 per cent during the summer.
There’s also evidence that parents are getting a bit more comfortable buying baby clothes.
Shoope’s survey found that parents of babies under four were more likely to shop at Shopes than their adult counterparts.
‘We are finding that parents prefer to buy a dress or a suit for their babies when it is not a big price increase, rather they prefer to spend less money on the purchase of a suit,’ Shoppescount said.
