A baby stash? We have everything but the crib and the baby.
Also, note if you have kids already.

I voted NO.

I have a daughter who is 7.5. My stepson is also 7.5.

We have nothing left from them when they were babies. My SS's mom has all his old baby stuff---but that's because she had another baby a few yrs ago; she actually called DH about it b/c he had some of their old baby stuff (bassinet, etc) in the basement and she wanted it back.

I got rid of most of DD's baby things---swing, crib, exersaucer, etc. I was very young when she was born and still in college and knew I would not be having another child for a long time---I was thinking 5-6 yrs. It's obviously turning out to be a lot longer.

I saved her bedding, though---blanket, bumper pads, crib sheets, etc. but that was for sentimental reasons. I also saved my favorite clothes of hers, but doubt they will get used again---first of all, I would have to have another girl and the timing/season would have to be the same. Given that if I get pg anytime in the next few months, I would be due in Sept-Dec. and DD was born in May, that is not looking likely.

So I voted no.

We will need pretty much everything----crib, carseat, stroller, clothes, toys, diaper bag, the whole deal! I'm sure I will have a baby shower---that is acceptable, isn't it, since it has been so long since I had a baby?

It is a little embarassing how much stuff I already have. I pretty much have all the maternity stuff I'll need except for bras as I grow (no more A cup!!). As far as baby stuff, we already have a car seat, pack-n-play, clothes thru 6 months, some toys, and a lot of the little things that you need.

The good part is that I bought almost everything on sale, so I have saved us some money by shopping ahead!

I vote A LOT. I have enough stuff for a boy or a girl for weeks to months. All I need is a car seat but I'm sure I will still keep buying more.

If we have a girl we are good till about 3 years and have a lot up to size 6. I have all my little sisters clothes and I have had a couple friends with girls give me a ton of clothes. So we have about 12 bins in the garage. Ialso have one bin of stuffed animals and one bin that has bottles, frames, a few toys, blankets, and some other random things. I have a moby wrap, pack and play. I had a carseat but I donated it because now its almost 5 years old. We weren't expecting this to take forever, so I held onto it for awhile. I was given 3 cribs in all my trying, but I decided I wanted to buy a new one. I also have my antique dresses that will be for my baby at one point.

I have my sisters crib bedding, but I don't like it, so I am just keeping it till she is older knowing it would be destroyed if it stayed at my moms house.

We have all girls stuff for my DD (turning 2 this month) but no boys things and no child bedroom stuff... So WHEN we get preggo again, we'll have to go shopping regardless and I'm praying for a healthy baby, but if it's a boy, we'll be ecstatic and shop even more

I have a little....before my bfp I had a blanket, diaper wreath (won at work), and a diaper bag. Since the bfp, we've added a few onsie's and 2 Aggie embroidered burp clothes. I'm going to start the diaper stash real soon though.

Before we got our BFP we had pretty much everything but a baby. We have a crib, but it's a used one I bought when we babysat my cousin's boys so my mom decided they'll buy a new one for us. The only big thing that we need is a highchair. We had bought one, but I didn't care for it 100% and it matched my parent's kitchen so we gave it to them. We had a lot of things in 2s since we weren't sure how many we'd get pregnant with. But it worked out well. We have a swing on each level of our house. We also have a full sized swing, bouncy seat, and a pack-n-play at my parent's.
