Rental fashion frontrunner My Wardrobe HQ opened its digital doors to kids a while back, offering families the chance to kit out their children with the latest designer drops – think Stella McCartney, Gucci and Oscar de la Renta – at a fraction of their retail price. Clothing ranges from nine months to age 15, and if your little one become a bit too attached an item you even have the option of buying it secondhand. mywardrobehq.com

Best for Variety: thelittleloop

Created with the goal of helping parents keep up with their rapidly growing children, thelittleloop is somewhat of a household name when it comes to rental kidswear – having made a splash BBC’s Dragon’s Den, where entrepreneur Deborah Meaden invested in the company. The platform is home to a huge range of brands, from John Lewis to Rachel Riley, and prices reflect the condition of each item (when they can no longer be passed on they are are broken down and recycled in the UK). You can opt for a monthly subscription plan starting at £18, which enables you to rent roughly six or seven products at a time with unlimited swaps. thelittleloop.com

Best for Under Two’s: Bundlee

When Eve Kekeh founded Bundlee in 2018, she wanted to create a rental system that suited young families of all sizes. You can create a plan that’s tailored to your family, with clothes delivered to your door when you need them. When the inevitable growth spurt hits, you can simply swap the clothing you do have for the next size up. The smaller size will be passed on to the next family that needs it, keeping things circular. All clothes are made in the UK from soft Oeko-Tex cotton, and in the personalised subscription you can choose premium pieces to rent from brands like MORI and Little Riley Studio. bundlee.co.uk
