Some major supermarkets sell a limited range of premature baby clothes, and for premature baby basics like sets of vests or accessories they can provide a good option at cheap prices. This range is often not found in store so you’re likely to need to visit the websites of Tesco, Sainsbury’s, Morrisons and Asda to see what they have available.
The size of premature baby clothing available at supermarkets is likely to be at the upper end of premature e.g. 4lb upwards and certainly in-store sizes normally start at 6lb or ‘Tiny Baby’ size.
Should I buy premature baby clothes from a supermarket?
If you’re just after some baby basics on a budget then supermarkets like Tesco, Sainsbury’s, Morrisons and Asda can be a good option.
If you’re looking for a wide choice of brands and styles then supermarkets aren’t going to give you the premature baby clothes you need.
And if you need clothes for babies that are smaller than 4lb then you’re also likely to need to find a specialist premature baby clothing retailer.
Buying supermarket premature baby clothes as a gift?
If your budget is very limited, then buying supermarket premature baby clothes is still a nice gesture and I’m sure will be much appreciated by a loved-one.
However if your budget can stretch a bit further then we recommend buying something a little special for your loved-one's baby, from more premium premature baby clothing brands.
Also if the preemie baby is under 5lb your options at supermarkets like Tesco or Asda will be limited, whereas Little Mouse has a wide range of the smallest clothing for tiny baby boys and girls.
Also a specialist premature baby clothing business like Little Mouse will also often stock other items suitable for a premature baby that can be a lovely gift. This includes muslins, blankets, scratchmitts and soft toys.
