Too early to buy....?

DH and I are going to have a baby, we are going to start trying soon. We are going to start buying things that aren't gender specific like diapers, a bassinett, crib changing ect. And I was wondering if this is too soon, I heard that diapers will get ruined if we have them too long...is that true??

  • lol no, just keep them in a dry place thats a very smart thing to do. Then it doesnt feel like such a blow to your wallet when its crunch time and the baby is coming any day now

  • I wouldn't buy yet. I would wait to buy until after the first trimester. God forbid something were to happen (I pray not) then it would be really painful to see those things laying around.

  • I'd have to say, if you aren't currently pregnant, it is a bit too soon to buy those things.

    maybe just open a savings account and transfer money each week or month into it and don't touch it until you do actually become pregnant.

  • I wouldnt buy anything...Not everyone can get pregnant right away. It took us 2 years. One of the nurses at my OB/GYN took them 8 years.

  • I would wait. I started TTC last October, over a year ago. Still no baby. You never know how long it will take.

  • I am with everyone else you never know how long it will take. It took us almost 3 years to get pregnant. The savings Idea is a good one that way you have all the money saved and it wont be such a blow. I am 9wks and we still havent bought anything we are waiting until the first trimester is over.

  • I would. I did this with my second baby and it helped out so much, Dont buy food or anything. But toys diapers , wipes, or you could buy gift cards to. Like to target or walmart.
