Have you bought anything for baby yet?

post #1 of 46
Thread Starter 
I don't know why but I am dying to buy something for this baby! Silly, I know. I am thinking of buying some yarn to knit a soaker or some longies. That would probably be the most practical thing b/c I don't really need much at all.

Has anybody else bought anything yet?

nope! I usually always buy something but I have tons of stuff leftover that this new baby will be able to use. If we decide to fine out what this baby is, then I'll probably go out that day and buy something.

I haven't bought anything, but I knit a newborn cap with some yarn I had on hand! I actually knit it the day I got my +HPT, and used that to tell DH.

How sweet!

I've been tempted, but I know I should wait. I think the best thing for the baby right now is for me to save up and buy my own car.

I have not bought anything, but I did make this baby a nb diaper last week. baby already has about 6 that I made from my last pg, which ended in m/c, so technically, this one just has the one diaper. I will not be buying any necessities for this baby. DH has agreed to let me buy a nice woven wrap, and thats really all we need

Nothing yet. I'm needing to buy diapers and covers. Once we find out boy or girl I will probably go buy an outfit or two. I don't need much at all if it's a girl. I got rid of most of Eric's baby clothes though, so if it's a boy we will need to buy some.

I bought a few pieces of clothes that were on clearnce. I have some stuff left from DS, but not tons. So, I'll need to buy clothes. And, as soon as DH gets paid, I'm buying 45 prefolds from a friend of mine. We still have DS's prefolds, but need some more. We did fulltime EC last time, and this time we'll probably be using diapers part time.

My friend that is done having kids has been giving me all her stuff, so I've got a garage full of stuff, including a stroller.

I bought these adorable crocheted hats from a street vendor long before I was even pregnant. They look like a bluebell with the stem coming out of the top. Really cute. But I haven't gotten anything for the baby since I've been pregnant. I'm kinda holding off until the u/s.

I bought a few little outfits for Halloween. Only because they were 90% off! I am sorta waiting till I know that everything is cool. I'm a little superstitious I guess.

I will get a ton of hand-me-downs because my sister in law just had twins, a boy and a girl! So no matter what I am good! Their b-day is in July so they will be a year apart. Good timing on my part I should say. She has been talking about giving me all of her stuff for a while now. The other good thing is that the clothes will all be the right season!

When she was buying a co-sleeper she asked me which one I wanted so that I will like it when I get it. lol!

I really want to knit some stuff though. I am not the best knitter, but winter always makes me want to. I ordered a few hat books from the library.

I doubt we will actually buy much (as far as clothes go, I buy everything in thrift stores anyhow), but I have at least 5 baby carriers that my DD has outgrown that I am saving for this one.

And I am pretty sure that I will end up buying a few more.
I am a bit of a carrier addict.

I'm waiting to find out the sex before I buy anything. We already have tons of girl clothes, and since this baby has the same due date as my daughter did (!!) all the clothes will be the right season at the right time. If it's a boy, I'll be doing lots of shopping! We saved all of our cloth diapers, I have four carriers, that's about all we'd ever need. I do want to knit some longies for winter though, and figure out how to make ones out of wool sweaters.

All I need is a breast pump, a double stroller, a car seat and I'm figuring clothes will be passed to me, we have huge family (oh, and a 6 drawer dresser for my toddler so we can give the other two little ones to the baby). So, no...but I've been snatching up cloth dipes etc from freecycle, because I have "enough," but, my life will be much easier if I have a few more in the smaller sizes at least.

With my first, we had just found out his gender and we bought tons of "Christmas" gifts and after the first of he year we kept buying and buying lol...then I gave almost everything away---and we still have more than enough. Oh well, you live and learn lol.

No! I'm waiting for our container to arrive from South Africa to see what I packed :-) Not planning on finding out the sex of this baby, but if it is a boy we are sure to have enough clothes since we already have six boys. If it is a girl, that will be a totally different story!!! :-) :-)

Wowie! 6 boys!

As for me, I've bought a few second-hand cloth diapers (most of my dd2's are lent out, and I want some new fluff!!), and a couple of nice unbleached cotton sleepers that were on clearance. I got a lot of 100% cotton stuff from an American Apparel co-op for the baby that I m/c, so that stuff is fresh and washed for this little bundle too!

Just some xs and small size cloth diapers I got a good deal on. We used disposables until 6 weeks with DS so I didn't have the very little diapers.

Sort of OT, but I would love to get in on an AA co-op...do you know if there will be another one anytime soon with the group you did it with??

This is my 3rd, so I really don't need to buy anything specifically for the baby. I do need to get some new premium prefolds, but my ds2 will wear them first (the ones I have are starting to fray and get holes after 2 kids). Other than that, the baby gets a used Sienna since my car won't fit 3 car seats across the back seat! But we're not getting that until this spring.
