Fleece is one of the best fabrics in the cooler months of the year. It keeps baby dry, even when he sweats, and it's a nice and easy layer that isn't too bulky.
And reducing bulk is important because you never want to compromise car seat safety.
Amazon is having a great sale on fleece and sweaters for babies right now and you don't want to miss it. This unisex Columbia baby and infant bear bunting is marked down from $45 and depending on what color you choose, you'll spend between $29 and $32 on it.
Not too bad. Especially because it's unisex ... remember, if you're planning on having more kids, unisex clothing is the way to go.
'Tis the season for layers!
Fleece is great for this time of year because it's lightweight, easy to layer up, warm, and wicks moisture in the event your baby gets a little sweaty.
And Carter's is having a great $10 fleece sale right now, both in-store and online.
Choose from 3-piece vest and cardigan/hoodie sets for baby boys and girls.
Hurry, because at this price, inventory will go quick.
If you've got a baby, you know how valuable soft soled baby shoes can be. They're great to keep little feet warm as well as for those first months of toddling.
In fact, they're recommended.
EcoBabyBuys.com has a special on Tommy Tickle shoes through Monday at 9am. The selection is priced between $10 and $15; you can get an extra $5 off (today only) when you use coupon code black5 at checkout.
I just purchased a pair of the "star" shoes; with the discount, they cost just a little over $5. Woot!
So, maybe you're out elbowing the rest of the Black Friday shoppers ... or maybe you're hanging back to see what's available online for deals today and through the weekend.
Either way, I'll tell you what I've found: the deals online are basically the same as what was advertised in all the flyers, and that's no joke.
I, for one, will not be engaging in the madness that is Black Friday; I will sit at home and do my shopping with a cup of tea and my laptop ... and then wait for my cute UPS driver to deliver it all.
This deal on Baby Lulu at Beyond the Rack is definitely something I'll cash in on. Especially given we have a boy on the way. All four outfits above are priced at $25 (regular retail varies between $68 and $80).
In and of itself, that's a pretty great deal. But if you're a new Beyond the Rack customer, you can also nab a $15 shopping credit with code BLACKFRIDAY2012 (when you sign up), plus take free shipping all weekend, no matter how many orders you place.
The $15 shopping credit code is only good until 2pm EST; however, the credit can be used at any time.
For any of you that like a good, snarky baby bodysuit, you'll appreciate the Sara Kety Attitude Bodysuits sale going on at Kids.Woot! right now.
I'm particularly smitten with this one, for a number of reasons. But there's also "I made a twozie in my onezie," "iPood," and "You've got Male!"
This sale ends the 20th of November at 9am CT.
Giggle is a great place to shop for organic baby clothes without ever leaving your house. From everyday essentials to seasonal clothes, their selection is fantastic and their prices are without a doubt, reasonable.
Their collections include giggle Better Basics, etiquette, Tea Collection, Zutano and Doudoune, among others.
Through Monday, the 19th, you can save 20% on your entire giggle purchase when you use coupon code FF12 at checkout. Plus, you'll get free shipping on orders over $75.
It's a great opportunity to stock up on gifts, clothes for your own little one and for next fall if you hit up the sale section.
If you have a baby, one on the way, or you know you're going to be shopping for baby gifts anytime soon, I would highly recommend hitting up the Bloomingdale's baby sale that is running until the 25th of November.
With savings of up to 40% on clothing in sizes newborn to 24 months, it's hard not to be persuaded to, at the very least, browse the virtual aisles.
Brands like Ralph Lauren Children, Juicy Couture, Egg, Burberry and True Religion are currently marked down; what's not to like about that?
There's a reason celebs love Bloomingdale's ... it's the crazy cuteness of the brands they carry.
Shop direct at Bloomingdales.com or in-store (if you're lucky enough to live near one)!
Since the weather is undoubtedly going to get colder, now is a good time to think about winter boots. And Stride Rite is serving up a sale to help you save money while keep your kiddos toes warm.
Through the 12th, you can buy one pair of Stride Rite shoes or boots and get a second pair 50% off. The sale is good both in-store and online.
This is especially great if you've got two children to buy for; if not, find a friend and split the deal!
I love GAP clothes for my daughter. And as we expect another little one, this time a boy, I've been snatching up the brand as often as I can ... both at consignment shops and on the store clothing racks.
Needless to say, I'll be attending this sale, which runs through Monday. You can save 30% on your entire purchase when you use coupon code GAPFRIENDS (when you shop online) or just head into the store and take advantage with no coupon required.
What will you buy at 30% off?
A newly-released Marks & Spencer study claims that the average baby has 56 different outfits in their closet at any one time ... 56! How that happens totally blows my mind. Though if I think about my own daughter's closet, I'm sure we're close.
And sadly, not everything gets worn. In my heart, I know we don't need that many, but it's tough to turn down hand-me-downs, right?
But I know many parents spend a lot of money buying newborn-sized baby clothes, and it's really unnecessary. So I'm here to tell you to stop! Put that adorable miniature sized outfit back on the rack!!
Remember, babies don't stay teeny-tiny for long ... and some are born big enough that they're over the industry standard "newborn average" weight limit of seven pounds. Invest in essential baby gear or a spa treatment for yourself instead; you deserve it!
