YOUNG KIDS DON’T come cheap.

In fact, in your baby’s first year alone, you’ll apparently spend an average of €4000 on food, nappies and everything in between.

We’re here to help make the first few years a bit easier (and more budget-friendly). Each week, we round up the best deals, offers and sales from around the country, both online and offline.

Here’s what you can save on this week…


  • Stock up on leggings, rompers and t-shirts at the Next sale, with at least 50% off all items from the Next brand. 
  • Parent to a mini fashionista? The M&S sale (with up to 50% off) should do the trick. This tuxedo bodysuit and bow tie is a particular (adorable) highlight. 


  • Fill up your pantry and fridge with special offers on baby food and snacks at Supervalu, including organic products from Ella’s Kitchen.


Pushchairs and car seats

  • If you’re looking for a car seat that’ll go the distance, this Kinderkraft Comfort Up car seat (reduced from €119 to €50.21) is suitable for children weighing between 9kg and 36kg, and comes with free delivery. 
  • For heading out and about, this Britax Romer B-Ready Travel System pushchair is suitable for use from six months to three years, and provides forward and rear facing options. It’s reduced from €449.99 to €249.99.


  • Make a saving and put a big smile on a small face by picking up a toy from the sale at Smyths.

Nappies and toiletries

  • Running low on supplies? Head to Dunnes Stores for their baby event, taking place until July 22. Offers include half price nappies, half price sterilisers and half price toiletries.
