Post subject: How much stuff have you got for baby?
I'm just wondering whether I have too much stuff for baby With Sebastian I basically brought a year's worth of clothing before he was born because I thought I was heading back to China and I hate hate HATE Chinese baby clothing. But because I don't know what I'm doing regarding Beijing next year I have started doing it all over again, I've got loads of clothes in each size group until 9-12 months
So, how much do you prepare in advance? Are you really good or are you like me and really bad?

I've only got a few 'first size'/newborn stuff just cos if she's anything like oliver she'll be out of them in no time. Got loads of 0-3mth, about half that amount in 3-6 and just a few rompers in 6-9mth. Thats it. I didn't want to buy to far in advance cos again Oliver never fit the clothes that represented his age..at 4mth he was was in 6-9mth and our weather being so unpredictable..i was unsure what to buy..ie; wool jumpers in july/august or shorts and dresses
Besides I don't think i've got the room for anymore clothes just yet

I kept a lot of my favourite things of Isabelles, but at the start of this pregnancy we went going to find out the sex, so I stocked up on neutral things. . . .then we got excited and found out we are having another girly. So we have all of Belles things, and all of the new things I got, and obviously if I see lovely stuff i pick it up.
I have been putting off going through the baby stuff but started the other day and was shocked at how much we had!
I think I could change this baby at least 3 times a day and there would be enough days in 3 months to wear it all!

when i was pregnant i stock up on loads of stuff the for the next year. i only bought a few new born, and ended up having to buy more. I bought loads of 0-3 vests as i expected people to buy outfits, and ended up with 2 more packs!
Cause we found out we were having a girl in May, I bought summer clothes in 6-9 and 9-12 in the sales! she didnt wear much of the 9-12, but being so skinny got use out of the leggings and shorts the following year (when we had an april heatwave!)
I still buy too much now, and put things away then 'find' them after i have bought more.
