AIBU for not want to spend a fortune clothing Baby Annabell?

We recently bought our DD a baby Annabell which she absolutely loves. Unfortunately her love for Annabell means she's been dragged everywhere and her clothes are very grubby and worn. When I looked into getting a spare outfit I couldn't believe how expensive they are (£10-£20). AIBU? And can anyone recommend other more affordable options?

Think Annabel fits Newborn sized clothes for human babies.

Is baby Annabel big enough to fit into normal baby clothes? If so, you might be able to pick up a cheap sleepsuit?

Tiny baby clothes (pick up second hand from eBay). Much cheaper!

My DDs' Baby Annabelles wore teeny tiny supermarket baby clothes. Think my mum knitted them some bits too.

I bought a bundle of prem baby clothes second hand of eBay dirt cheap and now baby annabell has a wardrobe full! Prem nappies also fit if your DD decides she wants those also.

DD was heavily into Baby Born. I used to get stuff from boot sales and eBay for it.

We found some tiny baby clothes in a charity shop that fit perfectly. It was only 50p per item.

I dressed my DD's baby annabelle with clothes from Ebay. Got some great bargains. If relatives asked what DD wanted for bday/Christmas I'd direct them to frillylily I quite enjoyed a browse myself, such cute outfits!

Oops, didn't mean to add link. Meant to just type frilly lily. Have reported myself to MMHQ to see if I can edit!

I got a massive bundle of tiny baby clothes on eBay for £6. They fit baby Anabell perfectly and DD loves having 'proper' baby clothes.

Don't mess with a much loved toy.

I'm 30 if someone fucked around with my teddy bear I would disown them( but I would be secretly plotting revenge)

It may be dirty and worn but dd loves the toy like that.

Great thank you everyone! I'm very relieved that there are alternatives! A trip to the supermarket it is!

Yup, frilly Lilly on amazon. Got some pjamas for about £4 I think

I used to work at Toys R Us as a student best job I ever had ... I recommended that people bought the new born clothes in babies r us for their dolls. Got more for their money that way! Kids loved it too... "Proper" baby shopping!

Good to know about the premier nappies. I was shocked when I saw the price of the annabell nappies!

They sell packs of dolls nappies for £2 in Wilko.
