Baby Shopping!

I have 83 days to go and I have bought NOTHING for my son. I don't plan on having a baby shower either. I have everything to buy all over again except for a pump lol. My first baby is a girl and she just turned 2 last month. Idk where to start or what to buy first. I'm planing on getting a bassinet & swing used. And everything else new. I probably should buy a car seat first lol. The time went by so fast I can't believe I have nothing and baby should be here April 12. Anybody else going through the same thing or is it just me lol.

Same here. I have 72 days left we have some clothes from my sister but I don't know what else we should look for. This is our second and my daughter will be a year and half when my son gets here. We should know what to get with it being our second but it's still confusing lol

Craigslist and swap/buy/sell/or trades on fb have been my bff! I just now bought the bassinet, I've been hitting up carters online sales for baby clothes cause I'm frugal like that lol i still plan on having a baby shower but i learned you can't fully rely on that. I feel you!

I'm due April 7th with my first. I'm going to be a single mum so money is tight so I did start buying early so I could spread the cost. But most of his stuff has come from buy and sell sites on Facebook, he now has more clothes to wear in the first 3 months than he could ever need! He has a 3 in 1 travel system pram that I brought second hand for £80 and ask around with friends with kids to see what they may have that you could have,buy or borrow. One of my friends is giving me her old cot and another is giving me a Moses basket, so all I need to buy is new mattresses and bedding. Friends and family will want to help out more than you realise, and check online for check lists of things you will need to buy, without google I wouldn't have had a clue about what was nessasary and what was more of a luxury to have.
Good luck

I have 49 days to go and still haven't bought nothing. I'm going baby shopping on Friday and Saturday though to get everything I need. I've checked online and talked to my pregnant friends to see if I missed anything on my shopping list.
