Your brand new baby (on a budget)

Local author Becky Goddard-Hill inspires you with some money saving tips for bringing home the baby...

Birth announcements... I would suggest: Send an email a photo with a short message re birth date, weight, sex, name, etc. and any visiting /contact wishes. Costs 0 and everyone gets to keep a photo. Text a message with above details. Cost about 5p-10p a text. If all else fails ask a female relative to call certain people to announce the birth. Pick one that loves to chat (perhaps your mum.)

New baby Visits... It is lovely to show off your baby but you don’t need to provide endless entertainment. It‘s not your job to provide cakes and countless pots of tea. Not only will this cost you but you have bigger priorities such as resting, Set the coffee/juice/biccies out on a tray and tell people to put the kettle on and help themselves.

Baby gifts... You’ll probably get loads of baby clothes as gifts. HOWEVER you don’t need 30 newborn vests and 10 pairs of scratch mitts in the same size. Don’t keep gifts out of sentimental value (unless it‘s Grandad's watch, then it really would be a bit dodgy to sell it for a couple of new sleep suits). Babies grow fast and many items get stored without ever being worn. If you don't like something you have been bought it is fine to exchange it, as you will never use it on your precious bundle. Nearly all stores allow you to return baby clothes for a credit note without the receipt.


Occasionally you may be bought an unwanted gift that you cannot return. Ebay or car boots are great places to sell such items. Passing pristine unwanted baby gifts onto other mums as new baby gifts is a top idea .

Thank you cards... Why not try cheap, plain postcards with one great photo (copied and printed en masse) stuck on the front, ‘thanks so much for your lovely gift’ written on the back. Cheap, they get to see baby and you don’t have to remember who bought what. You can have a bunch of these all done in an hour. If you have a patient baby then it is cute to put a little baby paint footprint on the front of a plain postcard as your thank you.

Accept help... With returning gifts, thank you cards, birth announcements, buyi ng grocer ies cleaning etc. accept help from anyone and everyone that offers. Remember you are recovering from a long pregnancy and the birth and you are more sleep deprived than you have probably ever been. It is fine for people to treat you and help out.
