Anyone else buy baby clothes for maybe baby?

Postby Waiting mommy » Tue Mar 31, 2015 12:59 pm

So, once in a while I'll buy baby clothes for a baby that doesn't exist yet lol. Gymboree is having some good sales right now so I ordered some cute gender neutral clothes. I think it almost keeps me sane in a way.... Keeps me hopeful that one day I will have a baby to wear these clothes.

I started buying baby clothes the last cycle. I believe BuybuyBaby was having a sale at the time. I would've still bought them even if there wasn't a sale :roll:

I have only bought one thing off of Zulily so far. However, they have some awesome grandparent onesies on there right now that I might buy to announce to the grandparents when we finally do conceive.

I am a huge bargain shopper so I hope this is the month, as there is a large consignment event at the beginning of May that I would like to go to, and it would be a great excuse.

This is so me!! I've been guilty of this for years... it may or may not be attempted to cover up as "at some point I know someone who will have a boy or girl about this age to fit into this" -- yep, I pretty much attempted to justify everything in my baby clothes stash like that. :) Oh, and of course "how could I pass up this great deal!? This is sooo inexpensive AND cute!" haha

Well its not important that any specific kind of dress exists or not in the market, Important fact is that dress must be make your baby more looking beautiful and attractive. Recently I was looking for a blue dress, but got a pink tutu baby cloth from a store named as MAMALONI. Now my kid loves it.

I want to purchase some dresses for maybe baby but I am confused that I have to buy dresses for a girl or boy.
