I was pretty superstitious about not buying anything for a baby until I was pregnant. (Not that I judge anyone for doing it… I’ve been tempted more times than I care to admit!) Even when we got the first pregnancy test, I was still anxious to make that first purchase. And then once I did (a pair of baby jammies), it was like opening the floodgates.
I know I’m going to be a first-time mom and I know I will definitely learn to buy more practical things the second he’s here…. but honestly, I’m just excited! Can you blame me?? When I posted the haul of what I’ve purchased so far, I got so many messages. Tons of veteran moms sharing brand and feature tips (like zippered pajamas for nighttime changes), other moms saying to buy what I want because they’re only little once (thank you! ha), and then lots of boy-moms-to-be excited for cute baby boy options.
I think with baby clothes in general, it’s hard to hone in on what you want. Like I personally don’t love knee socks, bubbles, clay-colored clothing, and onesies with words. I swear that alone eliminated like 80% of baby clothes.
FUN BABY BUYS SO FAR
Wanted to share some of the things I’ve purchased and then I’ll do a round up of things I’ve pinned too. While I was super sick in the first trimester, online browsing for clothes was like the one thing that brought me joy. I made boy and girl Pinterest boards with clothes while sitting on the bathroom floor.
(The only thing I’ve done that I think falls under the “practical” umbrella is that I mixed up the sizes that I purchased. Some 0-3 months, some 3-6 months, and then a couple of things outside that window.)
Kissy Kissy Sets (so many of my mom friends recommended this brand!)
And some things from my Pinterest board:
Would love to know your favorite brands, too!
