How far along were you when you started registering and buying stuff for the baby? I am six months and my SO keeps making fun of me for wanting to get started so early. But I want to do it before I get to big or tired.

  • Definitely not too early. Stupid me waited until a month before my due date to start ordering the travel system stroller and a bunch of other things and of course I went into labor 3 weeks early. Let me say, I was defnitely not ready. We had to buy a car seat at Walmart just to bring the baby home in -- we did return it though when ours arrived.

  • That's not too early. I registered for stuff at around 15 weeks cause I ended up having an early baby shower in my home town. 6 mos. is def. not too early to get ready, esp. if you want to read all the product reviews and all that. I started buying a lot of baby clothes on ebay and ended up with some great deals, cause I knew I wouldn't have the time or patience to do it once the baby comes. I'm now 33 weeks and pretty much everything is done. I would not want to be running around doing all that stuff in the last few weeks of pregnancy, just getting around is hard enough! Plus, you may decide to change your registry a lot inbetween now and later, so you should do it soon.
