  • Well we are expecting our 3rd AND 4th lol..i wanted to be as prepared as possible so I started buying as early as 12 weeks or so. Some people may consider that bad luck but with twins coming I considered it smart.

  • With my last baby I didn't buy anything until about a month before he was born. He was my third boy, so I had tons of clothes and I had just had a baby 18 months before, so I had all of the big baby items. All I needed was toiletries. I even had cloth diapers, so I only bought a few disposables for when he first came home.
    He did get a few new outfits, but that was all we had to buy.
