I want to buy baby stuff....

I dont need diapers, I sewed my stash when pg with DD. I have boy sleepers, I have girl sleepers, I have recieving blankets, I have burp cloths, I sewed my diaper bag already, I have wet bags, I have......

But I keep looking at baby stuff. I looked at prefolds which is silly since I'm a fitted/pocket/aio mom. I just want some baby stuff. I did order a beco butterfly II and it'll be here next week some time and I ordered a woombie. But nothing is in my hand and i just want to shop.

Anyone else having this problem? I want to go down the baby aisles, drool and shop.

Re: I want to buy baby stuff....

I am with you! I have EVERYTHING i NEED for the baby and more but I just want to buy baby stuff. I do need to finish up making the rest of the diapers since I am going for an all made by me stash and I need to make the crib skirt but everything else is done. Also I am kinda sad because the things I want for my baby shower are all stuff from places like hyena cart and etsy and I don't think anyone will get them.

I do want to pick up a woombie though but I am gonna put that on the registry since maybe someone will buy that for me.

I want to buy baby stuff. I have all the big items from my first including all her old clothes but I still want to shop. I am waiting on some muslin swaddling blankets I ordered. Hubby said he would take me shopping this weekend if I wanted

Re: I want to buy baby stuff....

I have been getting up early and hitting up the yard sales for months now to try and find the things we need. I can't shop on our super tight budget but I have thought a couple of times, "Why do we need to eat so much!" I have enough stuff to get by with it but I am always thinking that this may be our last blessing and I want them to be pampered, like he will know that his diapers are from fsot or his outfit was from a yard sale.

Re: I want to buy baby stuff....

I'm glad that I'm not the only one that wants baby stuff.

I was just thinking about this again, and I think it's the waiting now that's hard and I'm trying to fill the waiting time with baby stuff. But that's just silly. Stuff doesn't replace the baby, it doesn't change the fact that I still have 1 1/2 mths to go. I just need to find things to fill my time that is more productive.

Thanks everyone for letting me think through this.

Re: I want to buy baby stuff....

I want to buy baby stuff, but I don't know whether to buy for a or a !!! It's killing me!!!
I just went through my baby girl clothes tonight and I don't know what my poor girls wore when they were newborns because I have practically zero 0-3 month clothing. Now, do I go buy a few things just in case??? Or go with my gut?? I'm sure it's a boy. I have tons of boy clothes since DS2 is the current baby of the family. In that case, I wouldn't need to buy anything clothing-wise. I also need a diaper bag and wet bags and a special blanket for the baby, but I don't want to buy GN so I'll have to wait until they arrive.
This waiting to find out if it's a girl or a boy is not all it's cracked up to be! That's all I have to say....

Thanks for listening to my whining. LOL I'm so blessed, if this is my big drama at the moment, I'm doing just fine.
