Shopping tips for baby and kids products
Do a safety check.
Items like car seats, high chairs, cribs and strollers should adhere to current safety standards. If you’re buying used gear, look up the product on the US Consumer Product Safety Commission’s website to check for recalls.
Don’t stock up on diapers and bottles just yet.
Rather than buying one particular brand in bulk, wait for baby to arrive and test drive the products first. You might find that he or she takes to one brand or style best.
When in doubt, size up.
If you’re not sure what size clothing or diapers to buy for a shower gift, go with a larger size. Some babies are never small enough to fit into newborn clothing. And even if they are, they can always grow into a bigger size.
Keep the weather in mind.
Babies grow fast! Consider the current season when shopping for clothes, or buy larger sizes in seasonal items like coats, hats and boots to make sure they won’t be outgrown before your little one gets around to wearing them.
Check for financing opportunities.
Many retailers offer financing options through Affirm or other partners, making those big purchases more affordable.
