Curtains, couple of outfits, 6 cases of diapers, and two paint samples painted on the wall (deciding on wall color ), crib sheets, changing pad cover. This is our third child so I have lots of items. I just need PINK. We are going out again this afternoon to look at nursery furniture. Plan to order it within a couple of day.

I also already had everything except clothes and PINK. We've bought a TON of clothes already, she's probably set for the next 6-9 months! I may end up getting a few pink baby blankets, even though we're overrun with blue/boy ones from Connor that he rarely ever used lol.

I'll eventually have to buy the Minnie Mouse nursery set, but since we won't be in our new house until Aug/Sept, I have time!

It would be nice to replace all of the boy/neutral stuff to pink/girly things, but it's just not necessary or practical! lol I have the infant car seat, jumperoo, bouncer, swing, travel swing, toys, cloth diapers (I've added 3 girl/pink ones so far, and hope to add more), strollers and furniture. I'm debating whether or not I really need a double stroller, Connor rarely uses it now anyway and I really want a ring sling for her.

We already had a cradle (it's a family heirloom, handcrafted by my great-grandpa and used by all babies in the family), crib, gender neutral bouncy seat, bumbo, swing, and jumpy activity thing from DS.

So far, I have purchased a new boppy with some girly covers. I have purchased the fabric for the cradle bedding (it has to be handmade because the cradle is an odd size). I've also purchased a new breast pump because mine finally crapped out after two kids. All I have in the way of clothes is 3 onesies and 3 sleepers. Just got my tax return in so I plan on going out and buying all the clothes little things we have left all at once just to get it over with.

I have purchased a couple outfits, a diaper bag and the fabric to make blankets and nursery decor and yarn to make a blanket. That's it. We were given a changing table, and we have a crib that will be coming our way once we move. I'm having a shower on April 7th, and I'm not allowed to buy anything until after it, so I have another month at staring at my one tiny pile of baby stuff and thinking "HE HAS NOTHING."

So far I have 24 prefold diapers, 4 covers, 5 one size pockets, a few Snappis and a diaper sprayer. I bought a nursing cover, a baby k'tan (wrap) and a few sleeveless onesies. My SIL gave me a bunch of neutral clothes and I know my aunt and that she can't resist buying things for my kiddos. I don't plan on buying clothes until after my shower, as I'm sure we'll probably get tons, plus blankets and such. I know I have a swing coming to me from a cousin or two, and probably a bouncy seat too. I still am wanting either an Arm's Reach cosleeper, or a mini pack and play, haven't made up my mind about that yet. I'm still on the fence about getting a changing table or not. I think I'll probably be set after that, and maybe a stroller later on, too.

Almost nothing. We bought one case of diapers and one thing of wipes. That's it. My mom keeps telling me not to buy anything til after the baby shower, so that's what we're doing. It makes me really nervous, but this being my first I'm taking all the advice I can get.

I think that is great advice. This is a third child so we will not have anything. That is why we are purchasing what is needed. Friends have gifted pink though.

I haven't purchased much. I buy clothes I see that I can't resist. I'll buy diapers/wipes when I find them on sale. DH and I are almost done painting the nursery. I don't plan on buying a ton of stuff until after my shower, but I do want to buy the crib and dresser once the nursery is done so we can get that stuff set up. Then I can start washing and putting away clothing and bedding.

We have also purchased the small things--some clothes, some blankets, pacifiers, bottles, burp cloths.

We already had a ton of baby clothing, playard, bouncer, crib and burp cloths/towels/bibs from my other son.

We still need to make a final decision about a swing though!

I already have (from DD) a cosleeper, pack n play, bouncer seat, carseat, several baby carriers, a ton of clothing and diapers and bedding, nursing pillows, pretty much all I ought to need

I have bought a few new boyish diaper covers, new snappis bc I think the old ones are worn out, 2 wetbags/totes, some tiny boyish pants and sweaters (much chillier here in June than it was in Mississippi where we used to live!), some boyish blankets, a water wrap, some new storage solutions for the kids' room (mostly ikea hanging shelves and soft boxes), I think that's it.

I really should be done shopping. Maybe I will get a thing or two here and there but nothing big.

I have breast pump, carseat, baby monitor, stroller, paint, crib bedding and mobile and bumper. Wall decals and wall hangings and letters for making his name on the wall. We already had crib and crib mattress from DD. Bouncer and pack n play and Nursery Rocker(I love mine still) from DD that are gender neutral. We also have a few throw blankets and a stuffed animal for him. We also have Newborn to 0-3 clothes covered. We also have a few 3-6 months too.
We have to get a new changing table and cosleeper and thats it for big purchases. Bibs/diapers/bath stuff/lotions n shampoo/nursery lamp or night light/socks/diaper bag are the main small purchases we have left.
Also to FTMs....i know you will likely get stuff at your baby shower however it is highly unlikely you will get any of the big stuff you need. Everyone I know got things like clothes/blankets/diapers in huge abundance and maybe one large item from their parents. You really should buy some of the bigger ticket stuff you need and just tell everyone what youve bought already. Dont be left scrambling for all the expensive stuff at the end just because your mothers would like to believe that everyone is gonna spend a fortune on you.

Clothes, a blooming bath, and some cloth diapers not that I need those. Oh and a mei tie. I'm also purchasing a ring sling. That's about it. I just had a baby 18 months ago so I have a lot of stuff still.'

So far, just a couple of outfits. I plan to start looking at diaper sales soon. I am making several blankets and I have the material for those and I've picked out a sling. Beyond that... I'm waiting just a little longer b/c we are moving within a few weeks of Amelia coming home and the ladies at work are already planning a shower since our next youngest is almost 9! I will buy the rest when we get moved and settled into the new house. I can't wait!!
