  • I would purchase furniture and bedding EARLY; a lot of times especially if you purchase from a specialty store... A.K.A not walmart, or babiesrus; it can be on back order or a shipment can be delayed.

    I would purchase a box of diapers whenever you can in various sizes; later on you will be glad you did! If you are not expecting a shower go ahead and get the lil things you want; rattles, misc. toys, extra blankets; a lot of times babiesrus and various other stores have clearance items that are worth the low cost they are asking for!

    The carseat I recommend to buy before 35 weeks; as babies can come early and you want that item to be ready to go :) GL!

  • NOW!! You have a lot to buy, and it's not cheap, and your baby will be here before you know it. ( I know it feels like forever but the time is short)

    Go to the store now and start buying, lol have fun and don't leave yourself out, get a maternity outfit. Always made me feel better when i was prego

  • One good tip: BUY DIAPERS ONCE A WEEK! I had diapers until he was about 7months old! It really helps!

  • i bought the time i found out i was preggo. at first i bought neutral stuff- the best thing to do is GARAGE sales and mom-to-mom sales, why waste all the money for new things when your baby is going to grow right through them super fast when you can get the things you need for 50-75% cheaper. :) also a good tip is to buy all sizes- not just the small baby sizes- i did and now i got clothes all the way up to 2T- now i never have to worry about having to buy clothes when money is tight. GOOD LUCK and congradulations!!!!!!!!!!

  • you can also join your local freecycle group (on yahoo) and get tons of baby stuff for free from kind spirited generous peope. Almost 75% of my baby stuff was free from this group and most was really really nice and like a previous mom mentioned I have clothes through 2T as well.

  • I am 21 wks. and started buying baby clothes on ebay a few weeks ago. I have found amazing deals on bulk onesies and pants. I think I will take that diaper suggestion and start stocking up on those. Anyone know the cheapest place to get 'em? Costco?
