What baby bargains will April bring along with those pesky showers? Here’s what you can expect in April, based on sales and deals we’ve seen in previous years.
Watch for Britax deals this month as retailers clear out last year’s models. Look for them at Amazon, AlbeeBaby and other retailers.
With spring break’s arrival you can expect to see deals on swim diapers, swimsuits, sandals sunscreen and more pop up starting at the beginning of April.
Watch for Fisher-Price deals throughout the month. During the first week of April last year, for example, Amazon ran one where you got a $10 credit with purchase of three select toys.
Last year during the second week of April Amazon ran a Busy Toddler Savings event with an extra $5 off to $50 off depending on how much you spent.
Watch for big discounts on kids’ sport sandals at 6pm.com around mid-month.
Carters and OshKosh offered free shipping with no minimum just after mid-month last year. They offered it again right at the end of the month.
Look for more high-value discounts from Gap and Old Navy around the middle of April.
Look for 50% off at Baby Legs around the middle of the month.
Boden ran a 25% off sale during week three last year. They’ve been known to offer free shipping, too.
Earth Day is Tuesday, April 22. BC predicts there will be lots of fun and free stuff to do outside in your community. Spring festivals also begin this month in many areas. Check your local listings. Many have arts and crafts areas for kids.
Earth Day also brings deals on eco-friendly and organic baby items. Look for them at ecomom.com, Abe’s Market and other retailers.

Petunia Pickle Bottom ran another outlet sale just after week three last year, too.
Kohls traditionally runs a giant toy clearance sale during the third week of the month with up to 65% off Fisher-Price toys.
We saw some great coupon codes for kid’s clothes at the end of the month last year. Gap and The Children’s Place both had coupons for 40% off!
The final week of the month last year brought a Cartwheel offer for 25% off kids’ shoes at Target. There was a Target mobile coupon for an extra $5 off $25, too!
Consignment sales continue this month, though not in the same volume we saw in March. Check for sales near you in your local paper or at The Bargain Watcher, Consignment Mommies and KidsConsignmentsSales.com. Garage sales begin in warmer areas. Check your local paper or Craigslist to find them. Try using the “find” function on your browser to search for specific items like “crib” or “stroller” in the sale descriptions.
Sales on outdoor play equipment continue. This is a great month to buy a swingset.
