anyone plan to start shopping? especially when GSS has just started?
hubby and me plan to get those expensive stuff cos during sale can save up quite abit? like stroller, breast pump, sterilizer, etc.
Hi regina, may i know more about the fair?? as in where and when??
Hopefully as assured by my gynae,he would be able to see my baby's gender during my next appoinment (hopefully baby will be co-operative too..!!).Coz my appt happen to be on the 6th of june..So after appoinment,and once i know the gender,i will go down to the Motherhood fair @ Spore expo..!!
I also believe dat its easier and more appropriate to start shopping bit by bit once you know the baby's gender..
Want to check normally when you start shopping for baby items? After know the gender? I am only 13 weeks, won't it be too early?
some will start during 2nd trimester, becoz theres still ample time to slowly pick and choose...plus added advantage is you would have known the gender by 20weeks.
some will start shopping only during 3rd trimester (Like me) either wanted to wait or simply no time. Actually i only bought a few pcs of cute clothings for my baby boy last time, rest is bao ka by my cousin, coz i also got no experience in what to buy or which brand is good. (She bought everything for me)
as for sarong/baby cot, we hunt only after delivery~
I did my shopping about 26 weeks. When i know the gender of my baby. Then 1 week before deliver do checking of list. Then after i deliver, i realised not enough. My hubby have to go buy somemore.
So i think no matter how early you buy the stuff. It will never be ready.
You get what i mean?
Anyway, yours is really still ealry. You can look around and compare prices.
Best of lucks!
dont buy so much, you will get alot of gift box set on yr first month celebration... My boy quite big, cannot wear those new born gift box set. Got about ten over box in my boy's cupboard, think can give to his brother or sister to wear next time.
if have plans for more kids, maybe can try to buy more white and yellow colours clothings. white and yellow colours is more unisex. hehehe..
Motherhood Sales start by today at Expo, maybe can go there and buy some stuff..
My mum will nag at me if I go shopping for baby stuffs as now i'm only 8wks plus pregnant, she says its best to shop after 5mths as she said that's one the "pantang", am not sure for others coz some dont belief in it but I tink I just stick to what my mum says .. ehehehehe ..
my two cents worth dont buy baby stuffs too late... cos by then it will be soooo tiring to walk around...n before you can properly can the entire rack you'll be running off to the loo... so hard to shop !! i bought my stuffs gradually.... throughout entire pregnancy... big stuffs last as no space at home. last month you can spend at home cleaning n sterilising .. n organizing in ready fr your lil one... how fun!!
agree. hav to buy monthly from about 5 months. you also never know how healthy you are are towards the end. my 1st child i was on bedrest from 6mos til delivery date. i shopped via phone.
now i got baby clothes since i got 5months (all whites only since babies look nicer in white anyway) ... also dont know what gender yet.
big items to buy last waiting for the taka fair this august. breastpump, stroller, playpen mattress. etc. have also told hubby what to buy at the sale in case i dont get too well enough. =)
I start shoppin only 5mths later coz 1st term always slpy n not feelin well, late term is too heavy to do much shoppin...
Now can hardly shop..feet so swollen..need to find loo every 15 min..good thing i followed my instinct!hahahahah
