If you are someone who can take children to a store and shop while they try on things quietly, kindly share your secrets with me. Since that isn’t my existence that’s why I prefer online shopping for kids.

Shopping was a lot easier when my kid was little. However, at the age of 3, his buying threshold is quite low. What’s more, since I don’t frequently have time during the week to hit stores without him, I buy at least 80% of their clothes and shoes online.

It may seem confusing to gauge sizing and quality online. But, the more I do it, the better I become at predicting fit, wear, and longevity. It’s also much easier to try ordered clothes in the comfort of our own house rather than dealing with fitting rooms, bare feet, and tugging garments over a reluctant child.

Here are my seven best tips for successful online shopping for your children – because at some point we all need a time break from regular needful efforts.

1. Pick your win-win deal in between Tuesday till Thursday

Tuesdays and Thursdays can make it a win-win for quick buying when discounts are all over and fit in your budget for frequent buying. I, especially, wait for a sale for Babyhug on Firstcry offering 40% off at least once a month, and that Carter’s will have a 25% off on a regular basis too.

Whereas the deals are most loved by you in November month when smaller or just-launched brands are more likely to put better offers on their products.

This spree goes on with the post-Christmas sale in January where all big brands stand curious to be your buying choice. Cheers to the love of shopping!

2. Compare Products

The comparison instinct works best when it comes to online shopping for kids. Being a cute little creature, their fashion does change speedily and so are the expectations of the parents.

Me, being a toddler’s mom, comparing between apps is kind-a-common-behavior. Firstcry, Hubscotch, Amazon, and Myntra do score well for the purpose. Amazon throws a fair deal for a set of 5 pieces of clothing or a top-bottom combo whereas Firstcry carries a series of trendy apparel, shoes, and more. So, you better need to put your clock to work when scrolling online.

3. Shop from Both Sections

If you are on a newborn/ infant shopping spree, this is going to be a big help. It is tricky to find colors while buying for a baby boy. Likewise, picking good denim for a baby girl is not that easy. Well, switching over sections will surely be a relief when looking for these particular preferences.

I buy leggings, pants, joggers, and a night robe kind of clothes from the girls’ section for my son while shopping online for kids.

4.Premium Membership or Insider Points

Shopping isn’t complete until those extra favors given by websites. This may seem like spending extra but I find it gentle for paying no shipping cost, having a wide window of choices, extra discounts, early pricing reveals, and much more for a long span.

I realized the amount we might pay for premium membership will save extra shipping cost at least for a year. Amazon and Myntra are some of the popular apps to avail these benefits.

5. Read Reviews

They say why bother when there are others. Well, not literally, but there is no harm in keeping a clear eye on what others have to say about the product you are interested in buying.

That instinctive feel can save you struggling with returns and overpaying in case the product, in reality, is not worth it.

However, keep in mind that a user review posted on a retail website is only one person’s opinion and the final call has to be yours. Because we usually ignore the best and worst ratings; the truth is usually somewhere in the middle. Or else Read Point 4.

6. Check Return Policies

Return Policies save your buck, especially when online purchasing for kids. Though I ain’t sure of the size I buy for myself too. So better be safe than sorry darlings. See that X Days Return is available before you add the product to the cart.

Returns are practically unavoidable when shopping online, but they will become less common as you become more familiar with the size of the stores you visit.

Using these hacks will surely be a fair deal if you’ve been doing time-bound shopping, especially if you are a new mom, busy home-maker or a working woman.
