Setting up

So next week we find out the gender. Im 19 weeks and i was wondering when it was appropiate to start getting stuff ready for the nursery. We're not having a huge shower so most of the stuff will be bought by my husband and i... Ive heard 7 months or 8. But that was asuuming you would get majority of the stuff at the shower. So when should we start stocking up??

With my first baby I bought most things before 30 weeks. With this baby I didn't get anything until 33 weeks. But that was more just due to laziness. Haha

Right when we found out we started buying neutral clothes, but after we found out the sex of our kids we bought everything we absolutely needed for th3 baby, and if you are worried about getting a lot of the same items at your baby shower you can always make a registry somewhere.

I just set up the nursery and I'm 34 weeks. Luckily,  I haven't had to purchase anything except diapers, wipes and pacifiers (a family friend gave me everything we need). I would suggest you start stocking up right after the baby shower. Waiting until after the baby shower should give you a good idea of what you'll need to buy.
