If you have already purchased things for your little one (or little ones in some cases), what was it?

If you haven't, what's the first thing you plan to purchase?

I bought a cute little ruffle-butt frog sleeper, but I still have the tags on it

Most everything we need, we have, boy or girl. I did buy DD2 a new carseat because this baby will need the pumpkin seat (it's a Graco 35, so fits until 32" and 35#. She's about 30" now and maybe 20#).

I need a new car (my Jeep won't fit everyone!)

We need a bigger house.

Haven't bought those yet

We need a car seat, more cloth diapers, bedding and clothes. This little boy will have to deal with a pink bounced and exersaucer

A house?


hahahahahaha! I bought a little 4pack of receiving blankets. I use them as burp rags since my babies have all been heavy spitters. This was boyish colors with giraffes, so I just had to. I figure I can use them even if Rolo surprises me and is a girl.

I haven't bought anything but I want a car seat stroller frame since my travel system stroller is bulky and annoying. I also want a few more newborn sleep sacks. I have plenty of girl clothes but I'll get a few new pjs just so the newbie has something new. Other than that we're all set.

Nothing yet. For a boy we would only need a carseat. For a girl we would need clothes too.

I have bought quite a few things since our son is almost 5. Between garage sales and craigslist I have gotten: A swing, pack n' play with bassinet, exersaucer, and some girl clothes. We borrowed a lot with my son, so didn't have any of the extra things left. If it isn't a girl, I am sure one of my 2 pregnant cousins (due the same week as me) will need the clothes.

I realized that once I found out Tobias was indeed a boy I really don't need to buy much because I had been so busy buying already! I have a complete newborn cloth diaper stash about 1/2 of my one size stash done, a bouncer, a swing, a crib, a co sleeper, receiving blankets, crib sheets, mobile, couple sleep sacks, and clothes.....I bought mostly boyish clothes at yard sales because I just thought it would be another boy. .The only left for me to buy is a car seat, crib mattress, and more clothes. I have a Bob Revolution stroller and I am just going to use that. Oh and last week I bought a Tula carrier in the gray chevron pattern......

I guess I also need some of the smaller stuff like bath soap, grooming set, cloth wipes (more I already have some), butt butter, soap bits for cloth wipe solution, and a 2nd wetbag.

I haven't bought anything yet. I might soon now that I know the genders...but probably not til they start putting out the fall/winter clothes.

As far as what we need....I'll get some new clothes for them, even though I have boy and girl stuff already....but we really need a new car (ours won't fit everyone), and more car seats because my son and daughter are still in car seats themselves.

A carseat will be one of my last purchases unless I find one for a steal! I always wait because of the expiration dates on them

How long does it take for a car seat to expire? Do you know? I always thought it was a couple years at least lol

I need a bigger house lmao.

I did buy some clothes. Maybe four outfits. And socks. Just enough to gender reveal to the kids. But that's about it

I haven't bought anything yet, we like to search for things and get the right price We also want to find out gender. We need it all. I have two SIL also due with baby before me,so might be able to snatch up some clothes, depending on gender.

As soon as I found out I was pregnant I went to a local boutique and bought a onesie and a beanie. The onesie has a rooster and says "Local and Fresh" with our city/state. The beanie has the outline of our state with a heart on our city <3.

I also bought an Ergo. That's all I've gotten. Once I have my anatomy scan and get the 100% girl go-ahead, it'll be game on! =]

If it's a boy like I think it is, I will pretty much only be buying a going home outfit and a Baby's First Christmas outfit.

If it's a girl, I will start shopping ahead some seasons to get clothes while they are on sale.
