Here's where you can get baby essentials during lockdown


158 days ago

JOHANNESBURG - "I am about to give birth soon, what will my newborn wear?" "My infant needs more winter clothes, where will I buy them?" These are some of the questions parents and guardians of young babies are asking in the midst of the COVID-19 lockdown as some clothing shops remain closed and some of the ones that are open are beyond what some can afford.

In response to these anxieties, government has amended the lockdown regulations to include items for newborns to children aged three as essentials that can be purchased.

This means that some shops, which were previously closed, are now reopening to cater to this specific market in the meantime until the lockdown regulations on all clothing is lifted.

Here's a list of all the store brands and locations you can head to:
