What Was Your First Big Ticket Item Purchase For Baby?

While a baby could be raised with minimal items, it certainly makes life easier and more fun to purchase a few basics like a crib, a rocking chair and a dresser. Some suspicious moms-to-be won't buy a thing until the baby arrives while others deck their nurseries out when they cross the 12-week mark.

Kourtney Kardashian just announced her baby news last week and has already been spotted at a baby goods store with the daddy-to-be, Scott Disick. The two inspected gliders, strollers, high chairs, and cribs. Many moms settle on a crib and then decorate around it. What was your first big ticket baby item?

We are waiting till the last 6 weeks to purchase everything. The only thing we bought was a gliding chair because it was at such a good price on craigslist... but, otherwise we are waiting.

the crib. we had seen a round crib on our honeymoon and i was determined to get one when i got pregnant. it took some looking back then (1997) to find one that was reasonably priced.

We waited until we found out her gender, which was later then normal because my dr ordered an ultrasound early and the insurance refused one later, so we had to set up an appointment with an outside company and they were booked pretty heavily. It's a small town area, so they do the baby packages as well as most imaging for medical purposes as well. Once we found out it was a girl, and since we had had no problems whatsoever, we went out and bought her crib, a recliner chair since ive never liked gliders, and the entire matching set of a playpen, high chair, swing, stroller, etc. Some practical onsies and such, and some cutesy stuff. We had been waiting until then to really go ape, and we spent hours shopping. It was so much fun!
