The 4 Baby Steps of Online Shopping for Babies

Baby Steps for Shopping for Babies Online

So you’ve read our post on why buying baby stuff online is a good idea and now you’re ready to take some baby steps forward. New things can be frightening. If you’ve never shopped online for baby products before let me forewarn you – it’s challenging! But your nesting instinct won’t let you down. Just take a deep breath and follow these easy 4 baby steps of online shopping for babies:

  1. Research
  2. List Your Preferences
  3. Prepare
  4. Buy in Advance

Research:

This is where Goo Goo Gear shines. We’ve already done the leg work and researched hundreds of baby products online so you don’t have to. If you’re looking to purchase a booster seat for instance, just go here and read reviews on the sort of booster seat you think will be a good fit for your child. Or maybe you want to compare car seat brands, just click here. List out everything you think you need for your baby on paper, then ask other experienced mothers if you’re missing anything.

List Your Preferences:

Once you’ve figured out that you and your child have special needs (we all do) you can cater to them with the right baby products. Maybe your infant is on the smaller scale and you need the sort of bath tub with a sling to hold your newborn. Or maybe you want a bigger bathtub or something for your child to grow into. Sometimes quality is a preference, sometimes you’re just looking for the cheapest product. We have reviewed products for all sorts of preferences, and you’ll be able to glean that sort of information from the list of pros and cons on each page.

Prepare:

I have a lot of friends who have recently given birth. I’ve been in their homes the day before they go into labor for one reason or another. You know what I typically find? A spotless house. I don’t know what it is about a mother’s preparation but there’s something to be said about a motivated mother-to-be. Don’t let your motivation go to waste! Prepare for your child before birth and research and buy the products before you need them because you never know when you’ll have time to do it otherwise. Plus – you’ll probably have a lot less sleep once the baby comes so catching those Z’s later because you prepared early definitely counts! Preparation will also help you in the form of budgeting. Rearing children is expensive! Always prepare a budget with your family and try to get a reserve of funds because who knows, maybe you’ll be surprised with twins…

Buy In Advance:

Because you’ve done your research, picked out the right products through Goo Goo Gear that fit your preferences, and prepared to buy in advance, you’ll save a lot of money. If you buy the right product the first time around, you’ll avoid a re-buy for the higher quality product you should have been in the first place. Buying in advance will also allow you to stock pile the sort of products you need that you won’t have time to get later.

That’s wasn’t so hard! If you have any baby steps you think other parents would benefit from, share them in the comments.

    I agree. Actually, you will have to prepare all along, for every step in the development of your child.

  3. “As a mother I found it so frustrating that when you search online for the best baby products, you’re unable to find credible sources to help you find the sort of product that is a good fit for your own child. Every kid is different, and some products claim to be of high quality and yet affordable. It’s a mess to try to dig through hundreds of websites to find the truth,” explained company owner Olivia Palmer.

  4. I just received this item yesterday and my baby wore it today crawling around, by the end of this evening, I noticed that the stitches that keep the round plastic protector in the front has become loose. It is held literally by one stitch and underneath it there is a very thin little cotton pad that’s already starting to fall out due to the loose stitching. I am so very upset over this that I called amazon. I did not ask for a refund but instead I asked for an exchange because I already used the item. They were so very kind enough to exchange and will be shipping me a new one. Thank goodness for Amazon customer service! This item works but beware of the stitching on the front, expect it to fall apart.

  5. Just wanted to ask; can I buy the baby cows in any stores that stock moogoo or just online? I have an 10 month old chihuahua x toy foxy (named Bear, of course), who loves his “moomoo” and will fetch it on request, unfortunately moomoo has had about 45 repair jobs and is on his last legs.

  6. THANK YOU FOR THE WONDERFUL WEBSITE. ITS A BLESSING TO HAVE STUMBLED ON THIS SITE. I HAVENT RECIEVED ANY PRAYER BULLETS AND NEWSLETTERS FOR A LONG TIME NOW. I WOULD BE GLAD TO HAVE THEM. on tuesday we had a terrible experience in our family. my sister miscarried for the 3rd time in a row and please Elisha man of God, could you please help with prayer points which can heal and help my sister have a baby. she wedded in 2005 and up until now she doesnt have a child. miscarriages always happen unexpectedly when we think everything is in good order.

What are your 2 cents, Mama?
