Baby boy clothing is available from a wide range of stores, including Nordstrom, Target and The Children's Place. Second-hand clothing stores, including thrift stores and consignment shops, sell baby clothing at prices lower than department stores. Online sources for baby boy clothes include eBay and Amazon.
Common clothing items worn by baby boys include bodysuits, elastic-waist pants, rompers, overalls and socks. Many pieces intended for baby boys feature graphics depicting popular cartoon characters or clever text on the front.
One way to get discounts on baby boy clothing is to sign up for store mailing lists. Children's clothing stores often send coupons and discount offers to their regular customers. Free or cheap clothing for baby boys may be available as hand me downs from friends or family or through local Freecycling groups. Clothing swaps offer parents of baby boys the option of trading outgrown clothing for gently used pieces in the baby's current size.
Important considerations when buying baby boy clothing include comfort, ease of cleaning and whether the item allows for easy access to the diaper area. Baby clothing should be free of embellishments that could fall off and pose a safety hazard, and items should not have any rough edges that rub up against the skin.
