  • We bought a crib first!
    I waited on clothing, stroller, etc.. til we found out the sex. Then we bought EVERYTHING pink! LOL

  • The very first thing I bought was a Winnie the Pooh yellow diaper bag, then I bought unisex-colored velour baby jackets ... so tiny and cute! Now I've got a lot of unisex onesies. I've stopped buying clothes, though, because I want him/her to have more than white, yellow, green, and brown colors. So next we're buying the furniture!

  • I believe I bought all the clothing first... didn't know what the sex was so I bought a bunch of both pink and blue :P Diaper bag next, then car seat; and the nursery furniture and linens last :) Good luck!

  • I bought the basics first- crib, dresser, changing table, stroller & carseat...then the fun stuff. But if your having a baby shower- DO NOT BUY ANYTHING yet, save your money- wait and then fill in the blanks later : )

  • We started buying things that we can never have enough of, like bottles and burping blankets. We also bought a bassinet. We're waiting until the third trimester to start buying the big stuff (especially since we don't know what we'll be getting from the shower). If you're going to use disposable diapers, I've heard it's great to start building it into your grocery trips each week/whenever you go. Good luck to you!

  • Don't buy anything before your shower! I bought a blanket and got 2 of the exact same one at my shower. :)

    a lot of people say don't buy nething b4 the shower but for us we knew that we weren't going to get the furniture so we started with that. then i bought clothes after the shower so i could see what i needed.
