The internet, as we know today, has had a magical journey over the years from its inception. I still remember that first time I installed a computer at home and bought the government owned internet pack. We had to always dial a tone and wait for the operator to provide us access to the internet. The first thing I recall was to make an e-mail address. Yahoo it was, and then browse the famous websites that had loads of information as a the end of a few clicks. Back then, we were just excited that we could send messages to our distant cousins in the United States and could sometimes chat with them in real time. Everything was restricted and the internet also came at a painfully slow speed. But it didn’t feel much and was all worth it.
Back then, we never imagined that this little thing called the internet would actually become such an integral part of our lives one day. Things that we were used to do physically were slowly been transferred to the computer and were taking lesser and lesser time. First came the mail deliveries, then the real time chatting, then the need to go to the library and search and finally today, the need to actually step out and shop.
Earlier, we could only find a few products online, like a catalog. But today, the internet has evolved so much that one can actually visit a website and start shopping online for his favorite products. This, not only restricting oneself to the boundaries of one country, but even shopping from websites outside. I personally am a shopaholic and such advancements mean that I get to buy things in a much more convenient way. I am a regular at many such online shopping platforms and keep looking for new bargains that will satiate the need to buy in me.
Apart from my personal appreciations, another force that I reckon with today is online shopping for baby products. Yes, you heard that right, I shop online for my babies and now, buy almost everything for them online. An average parent will understand that once you have babies, your ‘me-time’ reduces significantly and it become more and more difficult to actually go out and look for new products. Add that to the need of buying newer things for your babies as they’re developing and growing rapidly.
Online shopping for baby products came as a boon for me! I’ve registered myself into various websites like ‘berrytree’ (they make organic clothes for babies and kids, and their clothes are fantastic!), they keep me informed about what’s new and I usually end up visiting their website once a week to buy my necessities. Trust me, it’s heavenly.
Today, almost all the websites offer free home deliveries and accept cash once the products are delivered, therefore, I don’t even have to worry about using my cards or finding a different source of payment. The returns are easy peasy and can be initiated quickly.
Go on, explore the world of online shopping for babies and kids, and if you find a new quirky baby products shop online, do share it with me, I’d love to try!
Happy Parenting to You!
