Find brilliant clothing for your little one from supermarkets such a Tesco and high street brands such as Next
Babies may be the smallest members of the family, but they tend to have the biggest wardrobes.
They go through multiple outfits a day because of accidents, and what fits them today may not fit them tomorrow as they continue to grow and develop.
Let’s also not forget about needing various different types of clothing to suit different seasons and weather conditions too.
As a result of all of this, any mum you know will likely tell you that their little one has clothing that they have only worn a handful of times.
So, when a baby goes through so many items of clothing at such a rapid rate it’s important to buy items that are cheap so that the bank of mum and dad (or grandparents, or aunties or uncles, or friends) doesn’t run dry.
Buying cheap, however, doesn’t have to mean compromising on quality.
Here’s everything you need to know about where to find fantastic baby clothing at wonderful prices in the UK.
Where should I buy cheap baby clothes from?
There’s plenty of choice when it comes to where to buy clothing from for your bundle of joy, no matter whether they are a newborn or approaching their first or second birthday.
The price of baby clothing at Matalan starts at just £3, including adorable unisex bodysuits, hats, leggings and socks.
You can browse everything you need for your baby, including babygrows, dungarees, trousers and sweatshirts.
There’s also a great selection of multipacks available on items such as babygrows, socks and t-shirts because you can simply never have enough. The great thing about multipacks is they are even better value for money. Again, prices start at just £3 for three pairs of socks.
There’s a range of colours and patterns available too, so if you are buying while waiting for the arrival of a baby it doesn’t matter if you know the sex or not.
Marks and Spencer
The best thing about the baby clothing from Marks and Spencer, apart from the price, is the size range on offer.
Babies are sometimes born prematurely, and M&S has made a range of clothing especially for particularly tiny babies including babies weighing 3lb and 4lb.

Next also make their baby clothing out of super soft fabrics and use printed back labels to prevent skin irritation, so you know your baby will always be cosy and comfortable.
