Old Navy is my favorite. They do preseason sales on the baby and toddler sizes which make it really easy to buy a whole season's clothes. The best bargains are at Old Navy.com.

The good thing is that everyone's comments are pretty much consistent across the board!  Now I know where to go!  Thanks all!

Well my son is only 15 months old, but I get name brand clothes at TJMaxx and it's really cheap. Also, Target and Walmart have some cute clothes. Old Navy is a little bit pricier, but their stuff is really good quality.

Thanks moms, for all of your insight!  I went to TJ Maxx last weekend and bought my first round of clothing for him.  We're due on April 30th, so I'm not spending too much right now, but definitely need to get a feel for where to go when he gets here!

i have been buying all of my son's clothes at a consignment shop that i found here. i take in the ones he's outgrown and pretty much trade for new ones. she's got great stuff. my local walmart doesn't seem to have much of a selection for boys...tons of girls stuff though. we have a t.j. maxx that's got reasonable prices too. also old navy is good too. in the summer yard sales are your best friend!!! i found a lot of clothes this year for both kids that were all good quality.

Craigslist.com is also anouther one that you could check out. Its like a online garage sale. Kids grow out of their clothes so fast that I feel that that paying full price for kids clothing that they wear for maybe 1 month is crazy. Just a thought, good luck.

Mini-boden, Hanna Andersson, L.L.Bean, Lands' End, Gap - check out sales online.  This is the time of year!  We've had great luck with Target clothes too.  But the others' clothes last and last . . .

Kohls is great (make sure it's on sale!) or even JcPenney. If I have a coupon (you can get a 15% off coupon by filling out a survey using one of your receipts) you can get some good deals. A lot of times they have buy 1 get one for 50% or right now they have clearance items for $2. I just bought my son a winter coat for next year for $5 and a pair of shoes for $4. Good luck.

Definately The Childrens Place. If you go right after the season you can get things really cheap. They are quality clothes though. I bought my 18 month old son a bunch of summer shorts for $1 when they went on sale last year in Oct, and i bought a bunch of sizes in case he's bigger, cause for $1 i'll risk it not fitting.

I have 2 boys who are in the same size clothing so it is hard to find good clothing and I have to by double so it really adds up. I shop a lot at consignment stores ....some of the clothes are brand new and very good quality. There is also a thrift store I shop at all the time. They have a bag sale for $2 ....anything you can fit into the bag is only $2...huge deal. You have to really search through the clothes to find anything good there....because most are donation clothing. I have found brand new gap clothes, old navy, levis....all kids of good stuff. You have to be open minded and have a little time on your hands to search through the clothes but in the end consignment and thrift store shopping pays off!! Good Luck

I'm a mom with four kids and I just avoid the mall. My little guy is really skinny and I get those pants the elastic and buttons in the waist...I shop at target, kohls and walmart. When kids are that little they usually grow out of them before they wear out of them.You can also try once upon a child resale shops. It sucks trying to clothe kids. good luck

I find great quality things at Old Navy, Children's Place and Target for reasonable prices, with coupons and sales
