OH baby, there are some top bargains for new mums.
Aldi has kicked off its huge annual tots event and several big stores are following suit. In fact, Harry and Meghan might want to take note of these savings . . .
There are some big baby bargains to be found at supermarkets right now[/caption]
- ASDA: The supermarket’s big baby sale includes a two-in-one high chair down from £18 to £12. And the store is currently running a two-for- £8 promotion on two-packs of MAM baby soothers, which cost £5 if bought individually.
SAVING: £6 on high chair
- ALDI: There is a huge selection of items at its annual baby event, including its award-winning own-brand Mamia newborn nappies for 82p down from 88p — the cheapest I have seen yet.
Pick up Aldi’s version of the popular Grobag sleep suit for just £9.99, compared to £35 in Boots for the real thing. I also like the two-pack of pastel-coloured blankets, which would make a great baby shower gift, for £5.99.
SAVING: 6p on the nappies
- LIDL: Pick up branded items such as a Tommee Tippee sippy cup for £2.99 instead of £5.30 on Amazon and a two-pack of bibs for £1.49.
Lidl also has a great selection of children’s books, including Peppa Pig tales, for 99p each.
SAVING: £2.31 on sippy cups
- BOOTS: The Boots baby event has plenty of bargain baby and toddler clothes for half-price. I found a dinosaur children’s top that is usually £8 for £4 and a padded bodysuit that could be put away for winter, down from £20 to £10. You can also get two pots of Sudocrem for £5 as opposed to £2.99 each.
SAVING: Up to £10 on clothing
- TESCO: While you are doing your big shop, you can pick up a baby play mat for £14.50, down from £18. Another star bargain is the baby bouncer, which has been reduced from £20 to £13.50.
SAVING: £6.50 on a baby bouncer
