Are Rented Baby Clothes Better For Your Purse?

renting baby clothes for under twos

There’s no getting away from the expense of having a baby. They go through seven sizes of clothing before they’re two. If that isn’t the ultimate in fast fashion consumption I don’t know what is! Of course they can’t help growing out of their clothes so fast. But what does that really look like? Piles and piles of outgrown clothes. Which means you’ll need to find somewhere to put all that stuff when they no longer need it. With sustainability being such a hot topic, renting could be the answer to save money on baby clothes.

With over 183 million items of outgrown baby clothes stashed in UK homes, don’t be surprised if you end up doing the same. As busy parents it’s hard to get time to yourself. Let’s face it, dealing with a pile of unwanted baby clothes will be pretty low on your priority list.

The benefits of rented baby clothes

By renting you can dress your baby in beautiful, premium, sustainable baby clothes without spending a fortune. In fact your baby can be dressed to impress at a fraction of the retail price. Not only is renting baby clothes great for your purse and the planet, it’s one of the most sustainable things you can do. It’s zero waste and has so many benefits for you.

  • No outgrown baby clothes – you just send them back!
  • No storage issues – you just need to find space for the clothes your baby needs right now!
  • No getting rid of a stash of barely worn clothes. With renting there is no stash!
