Royal Baby | New Baby Fever

Royal Baby Fever

No doubt, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge have birthed more than a royal baby and new heir to the throne of England.  The new Prince has started “baby fever.”  When any celebrity has a child, sales increase, for all things baby. It happened with the birth of JayZ and Beyonce’s daughter, Ivy Blue. It happened with the birth of Kim Kardashian and Kanye West’s daughter, North. Now sales are skyrocketing with the birth of the new Prince.

New mothers want what is best for their children.  They tend to want to buy the best and spend a lot more on their firstborn.  Certainly, the media will fuel this flame.  The media will report every detail they possibly can regarding the Duchess’ post-maternity wear, the new heir’s wardrobe, his toys, his travel, and the many baby accessories.  
Remember to not get caught up in the ongoing new baby fever.  Being economical and stylish is very much possible nowadays.  Instead of rushing out to buy what Kate’s wearing or what stroller the new Prince will use, consider going to your local baby store or surf the net.  Consignments ships are also a great place to buy like new or gently used items if you are on a tighter budget.
Research your products well.  Consumer Reports can advise on stroller & car seat safety, while still providing the average going price for the item you are interested in buying.  Babies ‘R Us also has online registry available.  
So, you can easily shop with staying for 3 hours on your very swollen pregnant feet in the store.  The longer you are in the store, the more tired you’ll be.  this will make you more likelyto buy more than you otherwise would have bought.  Of course, there will be the extra frill item you want.  If it’s in the budget, then go for it.  Your future baby can still be a Prince or Princess in his or her own home for a fraction of the price of the celebrities.
