I'm so anxious to start buying my little one things! But I'm only 3 months! Should I wait a little bit longer to buy anything? when did you buy the first baby stuff?

My older kids it was always pretty much immediately. This baby it was around 20 weeks. But that was because we were undecided on adoption or keep

I would wait until around 20- 24 weeks especially if you want to know the gender.

Make your shopping list and do your registry if your going to have a baby shower you don't have to tell anyone about the registry until your ready this way you have time to finalize your list

We haven't purchased anything quite substantial yet, we're waiting for the reveal of the sex. 

But I've gotten a few things from the freebies like a boppy, nursing cover and a car seat cover.

If you aren't finding out the gender or want to do neutral colors then go ahead and start buying now!

I had all the "big" stuff bought early, around 15 weeks or so. I didn't start buying clothes and blankets until I knew the sex.

The only one of my kids where I bought anything before the 20wk mark was my 4th. After seeing her on a u/s at 10w I went ahead and bought a few things. This time around I haven't (but I also don't need much/anything).

I usually wait until I know the gender before I buy much. You could always start by buying a pack of diapers here and there.

With our kids we go out after the 20 week soon and get a gender outfit! Then start looking from there.

if this is your first pregnancy or if you have ever had a miscarriage, id wait until the risk of that is gone.

then id start collecting neutral and basic items. ill wait on clothing until i find out the sex. im 9 weeks so far and have only bought a cart cover and a couple neutral winter coats that i couldnt pass up [winter baby!]

The only thing I've bought is diapers, and I'm 12 1/2 weeks. I will wAit until I know gender before getting anything else.
