  • Most moms prepare way ahead of time. But I had my baby showers late in my pregnancy so I actually waited till the beginning of my 8th month. After my two baby showers I didn't need to get anything. My son is now 8 months and we still have not bought any baby wipes. But there is always the risk of having a premie so its a good idea to buy ahead.

  • i got all the big stuff around 6 and 7 months (which was good cause i had them at 33 weeks, and they were healthy enough to come home) but the small stuff i got through out the whole pregnancy. i didnt have my baby shower till after they were born.

  • ha ha I'm only 7 weeks and I have already started picking things up.. baby items can be expensive ugh.. but I don't usually get a shower cause this isn't my first or second baby.. that is why I start out early

  • I started buying a couple of things (neutral colors) almost as soon as I found out I was pregnant.

  • I didn't really buy much of anything. I got a lot of the essentials at my shower. I guess once I was 8 months I bought a big thing of diapers and some ointment. That was pretty much all I needed! I got a crib, sheets, clothes, shampoo, a bathtub, wash cloths, towels, everything I needed as gifts! I guess I was lucky though. I did have to resist the urge to go out and buy all the cute clothes I saw because we didn't really have the money for it. I'm glad I didn't because he had so many clothes that he grew out of so quickly!
