  • I'd wait until you know what you are having... other wise you might get the wrong gender clothes or end up with way too much mint green and yellow :)

  • Why is 4 months too early? If you want to buy clothes, buy clothes. If you don't, then don't. It doesn't matter when you buy baby clothes.

  • Do you know what you are having? I think GO SHOP! Have fun! Just buy stuff that is small so you can get all your big stuff at the baby shower.

  • generally they say to wait till you are through the first trimester because that is when you have the highest risk of miscarrage. but i would just shop if you want to. have fun. look for the deals. lol.

  • After my baby shower there wasnt one thing I needed. JUST WAIT! At the shower I got so many clothes that there were tons that my son didnt even get to wear!!! Most of them I put on just for pictures. It was crazy. So just wait. save up some money incase there are some things you dont get then you can go buy them. Dont rush it!

  • I would wait till after your shower if you're going to have one. People will buy you clothes no matter what. I did buy some clothes around that time. I was able to get some killer deals on ebay, which I highly recommend btw. I mostly bought boring, cheap onesies that I know I"ll use, but why not buy just a few things?
