The current economic downturn has brought about a slowdown in spending all over the spectrum of goods and services. That is as expected. However, some have noticed a discordant rise in demand for baby clothes, nappies, bottles, prams and other similar items. The explanation, they say, is simple: since people cannot afford other channels of entertainment, they are resorting to the oldest leisure-time activity.
That neatly explains why birth rates are as a rule higher in poorer parts of the world. After all, the reproduction-related activates can be the most affordable means of passing the time of day, or night.
But there is a catch. Once the consequence of such activities comes into the world, it (pardon – she or he) starts costing more than almost any leisure time pursuit imaginable.
So, how do you face the additional expenses of that cute new mouth to feed? You turn to bidorbuy, naturally. There you will find practically everything your baby needs, at prices that will not break your piggy bank. You can go with the traditional blue for baby boys and pink for baby girls, or mix and match all kinds of happy colours when choosing the clothes and the room dÃ©cor for your little one.Â If you cannot find what you are looking for in the bidorbuy Baby category, drop the sellers a note in the Wanted section of the Forum and someone is bound to help you.
As a quick reminder, here is a list of baby necessities:
Baby clothes and shoes. In the lying and the crawling stages, shoes are for warmth and decoration only. When the baby starts walking, buy the best shoes you can afford. As for clothes â€“ try to get them in several sizes too big. (Discontinue this practice as soon as the baby starts recognising own reflection in the mirror â€“ or else start budgeting now for future therapy fees.)
Baby feeding accessories. You will need an array of bottles and plastic plates and bowls. Note that the emphasis is on plastic. There is nothing that amuses a baby as much as the clatter aÂ plate laden with mashed food makes when it lands on the floor.
Baby dÃ©cor and furniture.Â It looks cute, and it does not have to be expensive. Click on the link and see for yourself.
Baby prams and strollers. Do remember that taking the baby for a bit of fresh air means pushing the pram in front of you in some park, as opposed to taking the baby for a spin in your car.
Baby car seats. That brings us neatly to the next item in this list of baby necessities.
Baby nappies and related items. Enough said. You may not like it, but it has to be done.
Baby bath accessories. This is something you will want to do. The little ones enjoy the bath time so much and smell so nice afterwards!
Baby toys. Never underestimate your babyâ€™s need for the stimuli the toys provide and always make sure the toys are safe.
And in the end – always remember to enjoy your baby!
