Thai Dickenson may be less than 2-years-old, but his designer wardrobe is so impressive, he would definitely give the celebrity babies a run for their money! The 16-month-old is in the running to being Britain’s most spoilt baby with his mum treating him to designer clothes and top of the range baby gear – tallying up to £12,000 a year.
While most mums are happy to deck their babies in cute babygros, label loving 39-year-old Suzanne goes one (expensive) step further by decking her son out with bespoke cribs, designer pushchairs and bundles of expensive clothing. So far, Thai’s wardrobe boasts labels such as Baby Dior, Replay, D&G and Ugg.
The generous mum also spent £2,500 on his first birthday party, which consisted of adults dressed up as Iggle Piggle and Upsy Daisy from In the Night Garden, whose outfits were shipped over from the US. She also admitted to The Mirror, that she likes showing off to other mums and thinks that it’ll gain her son some friends. “Nothing makes me prouder than seeing people’s faces when Thai turns up at his crèche in the morning. Spending money on your kids makes them popular. Everyone wanted to be invited to Thai’s birthday.”
The mum-of-three also revealed that after two sons, she yearned for a little girl to spoil. However, when Thai was born, she decided to go the extra mile by treating him to indulgent things. “I wanted him to be a girl. I so wanted to dress up a daughter in pretty designer clothes. So when he turned out to be a boy, I wanted him to always look different,” she explained.
Despite already wearing the latest designer baby collections, it doesn’t seem like Suzanne’s spending is going to slow down. “Barely a week goes by when I don’t buy him anything – I must spend at least £200 a week on him.” Although his parents aren’t celebrities, his mum ensured that he doesn’t miss out on the celebrity baby lifestyle – he even has a Mohican hairdo, just like Angelina Jolie’s son Pax.
“People might say he is too young to understand all the trouble I’d been to. But when he smiled at me, I can see how grateful he is.”
