Why You Should Shop Preloved Baby Clothes

Let’s face it, keeping our beautiful babies in clothing can feel like a big job. They grow so fast that it feels as though you’re always buying clothes. Fortunately, purchasing preloved items for your child has become a sustainable, money-saving option

Here are just a few of the best reasons to purchase preloved clothing for your child. 

It’s Cost-Effective

It’s not just thrifty to buy preloved clothes for your child; it’s down-right clever. Your lovely ones grow so fast, but you want the best for them - no matter how fleeting the time they get to wear it. So, purchasing preloved clothes is a fantastic idea. You get to dress your baby in the best items for a small fraction of the price. Often the things have had very little wear, so they can look practically new. And when you’re done with them, you can resell the items for a little extra cash. 

Potential for High-Quality Items

You may have a budget that excludes high-end baby clothes, but you can potentially find designer baby items when you buy preloved. Many of the leading brand names are among the most sold in the preloved market. They’re made better with higher quality materials. When buying pre-cuddled clothing, you have the potential to find items that would usually be out of your price range, vintage items, or international brands. You may even discover items with price tags still attached!

Save the Planet

The manufacturing, packaging, and transporting of baby and children’s clothing make a massive impact on our environment. When that clothing is used, however brief, it makes its way to landfills. According to Oxfam, 13 million items of clothing are sent to landfills in the UK every week! This is unsustainable. But when you purchase preloved clothing, you’re rescuing it from adding to our already substantial environmental issues. The fact is, a set of baby’s clothing can live several loving lives before it becomes a castaway. Even then, there are other things we can do with it to protect the planet.  

Safer for Baby

Preloved clothes have been washed and worn and washed some more. If there were any harmful chemicals on the fabrics, they’re long gone by the time you buy that item. Preloved clothing is softer and safer than fresh from the factory items.  

Support Small Business, not Big Industry

Another great reason to buy preloved baby and children’s clothes is that you’re supporting small local businesses.  Small business is vital to the local and national economy. When it succeeds, that money remains in the community and creates more opportunities for other businesses and community development. This is known as the multiplier effect

So when you’re in the market for clothing and other items for your beautiful baby, remember preloved items can be best for you and baby.
