Bah haha..that's hilarious. I recently told a guy from a (mostly male dominated) internet forum that I frequent, that his wife should stop shopping for new baby gear RIGHT NOW. And wait until the baby's born to try it all. Some babies just HATE baby gear all together (more than we imagine, I think...I know mine did). And told him all that money is better spent on a sweet, romantic get-away for the two of them while they still have the time and energy for it.
They both thanked me immensely a month later.
