Nothing is as exciting as the arrival of a new baby, but sometimes it can be hard to try and find preloved baby clothes that are great quality, functional, and let’s not forget cute!

Luckily for us in Ireland, there are more and more companies providing preloved and vintage baby clothes that tick both the style and sustainability boxes. Here are some of our favourite options.

While vintage has been having a bit of a moment among us grownups lately, it hasn’t been as easy to find authentic, vintage clothes for kids. Well not anymore!

In 2016, Clio Meldon launched Golden Child, an online boutique selling vintage clothes for babies, boys and girls that are chosen as much for their vintage credentials as well their functionality. Golden Child’s ethos is that nothing should get in the way of your kid climbing trees, digging in the sand and looking deadly. Hear Hear!

From dungarees and rompers to petticoats and shorts, Golden Vintage is likely to become your next baby clothes addiction!
