Starting a family can be a wonderful experience. However, as with so many things is life, it does not come free. Indeed, becoming a mother or father can be one of the most expensive things people ever do.

This is why it is so important for mums and dads to be savvy when they source products for their youngsters.

For example, when they need to stock up on baby clothes, they can head to firms such as us here at Universal Textiles. Our efficient operating system means we are able to provide our customers with great value baby clothing.

Winter Baby Clothes

Baby Winter Coat available at Universal Textiles

Children born in the winter need to have baby clothes which can easily be layered. At this time of the year, babies need to be kept cosy without getting over-heated in the clothes they wear. Two of the best baby clothing options to achieve this are body suits and sleepsuits

Body Suits

Body suits can be very useful for babies to wear in the winter months. A body suit is always handy because some of them have long sleeves while some have short, but all of them cover your baby’s tummy and keep them warm, which is the most important thing.


Newborn babies can be kept nice and snug in the winter by wearing complete sleepsuits. It is tempting to buy sleepsuits which are a bit too big in the belief that your baby will grow into them but all that will achieve is having leg lengths which are far too long. This can create complications when your baby is trying to move so be sure to buy sleepsuits which are a suitable size.

One of the most convenient aspects of using sleepsuits in the winter is that you can easily transfer your baby straight to bed without having to change them or wake them. However, if your baby remains in a sleepsuit at night-time, it is best not to put them into a sleeping bag as this can sometimes result in them being too hot.

Occasion Wear: Best Baby Shoes

If there’s one thing we love about babies, it’s their adorable little fingers and toes (and when they have the good manners to sleep quietly through Top Gear). Choosing the best baby shoes for your baby’s delicate little feet needn’t be much of a chore, particularly if you think of these few important points while browsing our online collection of baby booties, baby sandals and baby shoes.

It’s all about balance

Without balance, we can’t walk. When taking their first steps, babies need to practice their balance skills. Many babies do this by pulling themselves up to a standing position using the couch, your hands, the dog’s tail, etc. It’s important to make sure their baby shoes acclimatise them for the best possible balance. Your baby will probably have learned a few balancing skills barefoot anyway, which makes the importance of baby shoes that fit properly a matter of physical development as well as comfort.

Be prepared to get limited use

If you’re investing in occasion wear baby shoes, be prepared for the fact they may not fit in another three to six months. Babies’ feet are very sensitive, so never force a shoe onto their little feet, even if it’s just for the duration of a wedding ceremony.

We do our best to keep prices as low as possible, and with some of our bestselling occasion wear baby shoes selling for less that £5, we think you’ll agree we’re doing a pretty good job of it. Browse our website today and see the cheap baby clothes we can offer.

Sleeping Like an Angel: The Best Baby Wear

Babies spend a massive amount of time sleeping; gurgling away in their happy little dreamland of kittens, giant bottles of tasty milk and snugly blankets. Choosing the best baby wear for your child is terrifically important, as simple considerations like style and fabric can have a massive effect on how well your baby slumbers.


Short or long sleeves? Baby booties or not? If your baby is having trouble sleeping, it could be something as simple as them not being comfortable in their babygro. Before panicking and assuming the next few years of sleep will be fractured beyond repair, try a few different styles of baby sleep suits.

Sleep suits should be loose enough to allow free movement (it’s important baby’s growth is not restricted in any way) whilst keeping your baby’s delicate skin covered and protected from scratches or chills.


Many babies suffer from infant allergies, which is why we make sure our ranges of anti-allergy baby clothing products stay cheap and cheerful through the entire year. Most babies sleep easier in 100% cotton, but don’t worry about it costing the earth. Cheap baby clothes like our online ranges are designed with baby’s comfort and your wallet in mind.


Babies grow incredibly quickly, making the expansion of their wardrobe an ongoing consideration. We know you want cheap baby clothing if possible, which is why we do our best to keep prices down, particularly in terms of everyday baby clothes and sleepwear.

Baby Clothes Buying Guide: What’s a Good Investment?

Babies are expensive. Well, they are by reputation at least. Since we spend a lot of our time sourcing baby clothes, baby shoes and cute accessories, we’ve become dab-hands at knowing the best places to invest your cash, and the best places find cheap baby clothes.


Baby’s skin is very sensitive, which could mean you need to invest in high quality cotton for your baby. All our baby wear is designed with sensitive baby skin in mind, so don’t worry about our cheap baby clothes being inferior or less cosy than more expensive counterparts.


Babies spend a lot of time sleeping (if you’re a lucky carer) which makes the importance of comfortable sleepwear fundamental to your baby’s mood (we all know what tired, sleep deprived babies are capable of). A few sets of 100% cotton baby pyjamas or sleep suits shouldn’t set you back more than an average of around £10.


Your baby’s day clothes are likely to come under all manner of attack (particularly from mashed carrots and dribble). You name it; the baby clothing will see it in real life colour.

If there’s one thing worth investing in, it’s outerwear. A good quality baby coat or suit can protect your baby from chills in cold conditions.

Occasion Wear

Some people love nothing more than to spend oodles of cash on their baby’s going-out outfits. In the spirit of honesty and frugality, it’s worth remembering that your baby may only wear a special outfit once before growing out of it. If you’re too tempted though, go for a single great item like a coat or dress.
