  • No, No, No, No, No. The kids grow out of it too fast. They aren't very brand name conscious at such a young age.

  • Yes
    No
    Yes
    No

    Why? Well, I've bought a onesie that cost that much. The strollers get torn up too easily. I have two, a jogging stroller and a regular stroller, and they were about $200 each and work great. That's a great deal for the Ralph Lauren, and I've easily spent that on RL. No for the shoes because my son is almost a year old and has yet to actually fit into a pair of shoes well...his feet are too fat, lol!

  • Nope. Because they grow up so fast. The name brands aren't for them at that point their for you.

    As I told my younger brother when he wanted to send me stuff from Baby Gap & other places, save your money & send stuff like that to him when he starts school if you really feel the need. But thanks for the thought =)

  • The Ralph Lauren set perhaps but I am happy with buying nice things and good quality for less than those.

  • No, no, no and hell no. I don't have that kind of income and I'm not one to "keep up with the Jones" for show. I live within my means. People that would spend that much for those things are people with way above average incomes, like Oprah, Bill Gates, Donald Trump, etc., or just showing off.

  • Nope. They outgrow things was too fast, the "Joneses" don't pay my bills so I don't feel the need to keep up with them, and if Ralph Lauren wants to pay ME to advertise for HIM, so be it, other than that he can forget it!
