The amount of stuff babies need is mind boggling - just peek into the closets of any family that has kids. There are probably enough binkies, bibs, and bottles to stock a small country, and every one of those items cost a small fortune. Feel like hyperventilating? No need.
Buying baby gear on a budget is a real-life thing. Not only that, it’s also incredibly smart. Every dollar you save now can go into your little honey’s college fund. Here’s what parents with shopping savvy—and a strict budget—are buying.
DaVinci Grove 4-in-1 Convertible Crib
What could be better than a crib that will grow with your baby? The Grove 4-in-1 Convertible Crib, by DaVinci, is a work of art Leonardo himself would have appreciated. Sturdily constructed of sustainable, New Zealand pine, the Grove crib adjusts to four mattress positions, easily going from crib, to toddler bed, to daybed, to full-sized bed. It is finished in non-toxic materials, so you never have to worry about chemical exposure. Plus, it is super stylish and will flatter any child’s room. Available in four elegant shades. Mattress sold separately.
Simmons Kids Slumbertime Madisson Changing Topper
A changing topper can save you some serious space, plus a nice chunk of change when compared to a changing table. The Simmons Kids Slumbertime Madisson Changing Topper is a four-sided unit designed to fit safely on a dresser top or other flat surface. It has protective fabric on its bottom, so it won’t harm or scratch your dresser when you’re ready to remove it. It assembles easily and is 36.25"W x 6.75"H x 18"D in dimension. It meets or exceeds government and ASTM safety standards. You can register for the topper with or without a Beautyrest Beginnings 2-sided vinyl contour pad. Safety restraining straps with easy-to-open buckles keep baby snug and safe.
GroVia One-Size All in One
You know your cutie’s tushie will look adorable no matter what type of diapers you use. Did you also know that more and more parents are opting-in to cloth instead of disposables? The plusses are manifold – cloth diapers are environmentally friendly as well as economical. They’re also just as convenient as their landfill-clogging counterparts, provided you get the right diaper. The GroVia One-Size All in One is an easy-to-use, cloth diaper option. It’s made from the softest, organic cotton available, surrounded by a sewn-on, waterproof outer layer. Not only is it incredibly absorbent, its unique construction actually provides a sleek fit that is unreal! Snap closures and stretchy sides equal ease of use for you—and ease of movement for your baby. There’s even a snap-in booster for older babies, or heavy wetters.
