What's the very first thing you bought for your baby, and when did you buy it?
For me, I bought a little ducky baby gown to get me excited, and my best friend from college was with me and she went behind my back and bought the WHOLE set, so now I have a ducky baby bathrobe, little booties, mittens, onesies, sleepers, hats...ducky everything lol
First thing i bought for him was a crib cuz it was on sale for $100 and origionally $450. I love liquidation sales. So sad to see the store go though. & i bought it when i was 10 weeks (after first u/s)
I have been slacking this time around, first thing I bought was a white bassinet, at 17weeks, then 4 outfits at 20weeks right after fever scan, and just a few small things in his stocking for st Nicholas day like pacifiers and socks n stuff. That's all he has so far other than hand-me-downs from my daughter (anything that was neutral colored)
This time around I started with diapers wipes baby wash lotion and shampoo last time I went crazy with stuff she wore one time so silly but I was excited because I always wanted a baby girl was told I couldn't have any kids at all
I have a suitcase full of clothes that I literally bought within the first few weeks, and there's only a few blue items in there from the day I found out what I was having and I haven't bought anything since lol I went crazy those first few weeks
I'm 18 wks today and still haven't bought anything. My bf, before we were officially together bought them their first gifts and surprised me at my us though. I was 7 wks and he bought them their first bears :)
aww. I can't wait until I'm blessed with the right man, but I'm not rushing it. Right now I just want to focus on my baby and education, and build a career and if God feels like I need a man in my life, he'll make it happen :)
haha I think in some cases, once you start shopping you can't stop. I can't wait until tax season so I can really stock up! And I've been looking on Etsy for cute baby blankets and stuff, and I have a feeling I'm going to go crazy very soon lol
I haven't really bought anything :-( I bought a couple used sleepers but now that I'm having a girl I should probably go through them. My mom bought me my first item though! It's a pink tutu with zebra print and it says mommy's girl on it. Plus it's been Christmas and I haven't had any extra money so in January I will be going crazy! Thank god for my baby daddy family. They sold his car so we could use that money for baby & their buying us a brand new one.
Im 17 wks 1 day and so far i have some diapers,onesies,socks,hats,organizers,wipe holders,a few bottles& a basanet it seems like every time I go shopping i pick something up me or one of my sisters. My fiance always makeing me put stuff down cause i tend to go overboard ....I guess im an excited mommy!!!!!
I just went out today n started pricin his big stuff like crib n travel system bought him a swing n clothes n socks n diapers bc I found a really gud deal on dem n I saw tha cutest lil shoes so I had to get 19w 5d so excited!
Once we found out we were expecting we started picking up diapers, I think I have 7 boxes of diapers and 4 boxes of wipes. Lol. But my first baby item was a Matt & Nat diaper bag. Once I had my gender scan at 20 weeks and found out we were having a boy, the very next day I bought all my bedding, furniture, stroller and car seat online. Drove to the city that weekend and bought all the newborn clothes, burp cloths, towels, shoes, hats, and everything else I can think of. Haha. I have been done my shopping for a very long time now!! Lol
Hubby and I made our baby a Build a Bear rabbit when I was less then 10 weeks.
Other than the bunny we got her a pair of shoes and hubby got her slipers and head band at 20 weeks when we found out we are having a girl.
We are waiting until after our baby shower to buy the rest.
We are also really blessed that my sister gave us a bassinet, stroller, high chair and LOTS of baby toys that her boys out grew and were grender nutral and my MIL gave us gently used baby clothing (34lbs box full) baby moniter, bouncing seat, swing and bottle set(new).
First thing we bought was all our nursery furniture that was around 16 weeks. We also got, bassinet, high chair and car seat. Only big thing we need is the pram. Still need steriliser. Bottles, some 6 - 9mth+ clothes, lotions wipes etc. Just the little things that i should get at the baby shower.
I had a feeling from the start we were having a girl so the day after I got the positive test (11dpo) I went and bought a pink newborn onsie that says "my daddy is wrapped around my little finger". That's how I told my hubby. :)
Flash forward to 14 weeks, I was right. Its a girl. :)
