Buying clothes... MissMommy ♥ Due November 18; Wisconsin 315 posts
16th Apr '13

My boyfriend & I have started our LO's wardrobe already. I started out only buying unisex things but I have a HUGE feeling this baby is a girl (not to mention all the daughters of my great-grandma, and their daughters have all had baby girls first) so I've started getting some baby girl things too.



I do plan on picking up boy stuff as well when I find it cheap, did anyone else do this? My niece is due 2 weeks before me so if we have opposite genders I'll just give her what clothes I'm not going to use, or if we end up having the same gender I'll just take the other stuff to Once Upon a Child.



I can't help but start shopping!

Don't buy anything thats either boy or girl until you know for sure. Buying unisex things is one thing. That's just a waste of money and time. It won't be that long until you find out the sex

I agree with this. Go crazy on unisex stuff if you want but don't waste your money buying pink or blue, you will need that money once the lo gets here.
I completely understand wanting to do it, but it wils till be fun, if not more so, once you know the sex.

Nope. We waited until we found out what we were having. And we still wasted money because we thought DS was going to be bigger. The seasons didn't match with the sizes.

I've only bought like 4 girl outfits and they're all Gymboree and I found them at a great price. I'm a huge fan of Gymboree, been buying it for 2 or 3 years now for my nieces and nephews so when I found these outfits at a good price I couldn't resist.



I guess it does make more sense to wait until we know the gender to buy more clothes. I'll just stick to diapers, plain onesies, plain socks, toys, stuff like that until we find out.

It's hard to wait, I know. But it really does help you save some money.
