    Default Is this weird?

    My husband thinks it's weird that I've started buying lots of unisex (on sale, op shop bargains, or just really cute) baby clothes even though we've only just started ttc. Am I being way to eager/organised?

    I don't see it as a problem.
    Is fun and exciting shopping for baby stuff

    I think it is quite normal, but I never did it.

    It's pretty normal. lol. I bought an outfit and a milestones book when we started TTC no 2 - because they were on sale.

    Though I'd say pace yourself. I would say don't buy *too much* now, because it's more fun nesting while you're pregnant. :P

    Totally normal but pace yourself as well. I only say because I've received so many clothes from others, second hand and new, that I pretty much had all her clothes from 6 mths to 1 yr without having had to buy anything!

    You don't know how big baby will be, and what season. Don't buy too many below size 000 or for a specific season.

    If you want to fill your shopping craving, look at towels, baby wraps, socks or cloth nappies.

    If I see something I REALLY like I'll buy it because it probably won't be available when I actually get another bub. I buy gender specific as well as neutral. The way I see it, when I actually get that bub, I'll either have some really cool baby gifts to give away or I can sell them myself.
