when you do the christmas shopping do you buy for your unborn baby too?

the reason I am asking is for those that do. What about if you are 5 weeks along do you still buy? I am trying to debate on buying for this unborn for christmas too. I have 2 other kids I buy for.

  • I didn't buy christmas presents for DS until he was 3y.

  • No, I always waited until I was closer to my due date before I bought baby things. Since you are only 5 weeks I would not buy anything for the baby, I would buy the other 2 kids presents instead.

  • I started buying for my newborn when I saw neutral items ON SALE.. that I felt I would always be albe to use ( onesees,, socks etc) they were all good quality but really inexpensive. By the time I had the baby I hadasmot everything I needed and di't pay much. Good luck!

  • I couldn't help but buy him a baby's first christmas santa hat. But no, no gifts til next year. No point in spending money on toys now so they can sit in a closet for months. I also got a stocking for him but that's more for DD to decorate in excitement for her new brother.

  • i might now at 30 weeks if i had money to spend on the baby, but not if only 5 weeks along.

  • At 5 weeks, no, I wouldn't buy anything, for Christmas or whatever. It really is too early.

    I honestly can't remember if I bought anything for mine, but my SIL gave me some bibs for him as a Christmas gift even though he wasn't due until March.

    I've bought my grand-niece some presents (all clothes though) even though she's not going to be arriving into the world until January.

  • I buy but only because I am due a week before christmas and I usually buy diapers and wipes nothing big or fancy.. When there little they don't really pay much attention to the gifts more the wrapping paper and boxs
