What items have you gone "overboard" on for baby?

Me? um.... I think diapers (but, honestly, can we ever have enough ) and clothes size 0-6 months. He's set but... no more! If I HAVE to give in to my complete obsession, I'll have to buy the larger size diapers and clothes but, really, I'm trying to be good!!!

Clothes and washcloths.. LOL I only bought 2 sets of brand new onesies and pants for the baby, but I bought 2 lots of clothes off of craigslist that are barely worn or never worn and there are a TON of them! Also, my grandma gave me all the hand-me-downs from my cousin's little girl. I really don't think she'll be able to wear them all.

As far as the washcloths.. They're just so cute that I picked up a few packs, then my mom picked up a few packs.. Then I got a few packs at my shower.. She has over 30 washcloths!

Considering I'll CD most of the time, we have quite a few packs(14) of disposable diapers.

I haven't gone overboard on anything during this pregnancy specifically but all the baby clothes that are currently stored in the basement are proof that I had in the past.

I haven't really gone "overboard" on buying certain items. But we did majorly splurge on items for the baby's nursery. Like the crib, custom bedding and the rocker were all much more money than I would probably ever spend again. But that was the only thing we "had" to do ourselves and I'm big on interior design...I wanted everything to be just perfect.

I've way overbought on blakets but they are so sweet and I love the soft ones. I need to stay away from Gymboree for awhile because I cant resist the cute clothes and matching blankets

Most of the stuff we have was given to us as a gift (hand-me downs, shower presents...). However, every time we go to the store we buy diapers!!! So we have quite a stock!!! But that's good to go overboard on, right?!

Clothes for sure! She has TONS 0-3M...and I've bought tons and tons from Gymboree size 6-12 mo for next summer...I love Gymboree and never thought I'd be able to buy the girlie stuff so I'm going a bit overboard I guess! lol

Thank you so much Alethia for my GORGEOUS siggy!!

I've really only purchased diapers so far. Anytime I see them on sale or I have a coupon I pick up a pack or two.

I THOUGHT I'd gone overboard on clothes but when I washed them and hung them up, looking at it I really don't feel its excessive and we may even need some more
Thank you Alethia for my gorgeous siggy!!

Strollers, at one time we had 5 in the house... We're down to 3 though; jogger, snap n go and a City Mini for every day.

I think I overdid it on socks. I have 8 packs of socks! I realized I gave all of DS's to goodwill so I went a little crazy at carters on saturday.
Thank you Alethia for my beautiful siggy

Nothing at all. We've bought nothing but fabric for some dipes and the diaper bag. We got what we needed at the shower and much more. If anything I'd say we're overboard on store merchandise credit and gift cards. We have a free crib voucher and almost $400 in money to spend on the baby.
I feel incredibly blessed.

I've been putting off shopping due to money issues I have bought some cloth diapers and were hoping for some hand me downs or some good yard sale finds but no luck so far. When DH gets his VA check this month I need to get a ton of stuff because it will be the last check before the boy is here. So exciting!!
