When Should You Start Buying Stuff for Your New Baby - Part 2

In the first part of this two-part post, we've shared some of the things that you need to consider before buying stuff for your new baby. 

Here, Bambinos and Beyond will be sharing a general timeline that you can follow when buying baby stuff:

What You Can Do during the First Trimester

Create a budget for all the baby stuff you're planning to buy. This will give you an idea of how much you'll be spending for your baby's stuff. This could also help you determine which items should be prioritized and which ones you could skip in the meantime.

You should also set up a baby registry early and have the items you need to be shared with family and friends.

It's also the best time to learn as much as you can about baby gear that you could be needing when the little one is a little bigger.

Second Trimester 

This is a good time to buy bigger items for the baby like a crib or stroller if you haven't already.

Now that you know the sex of your baby, you can choose a nursery theme.

The baby is growing up, and it is time to start thinking about designing the nursery. It is important to choose a theme for the nursery so that it is easier to pick out furniture and decorations that go well together. There are many different bedding sets and books available that are specifically designed for either baby boys or baby girls. These sets and books can add a lot of personality to the nursery and make it more fun for the baby.

Start getting nursery furniture. If you're getting them online, be sure to order sooner instead of later. It can take weeks or even months for the baby's furniture to arrive, and you'll want enough time to assemble it. For large and heavy items, you'll also want someone to help you position the new furniture.

Third Trimester

You're in your final stretch, and the baby's arriving soon. It's time to review the list you made during the first trimester to see which ones you still have left to pick up before the baby arrives. 

By now, you should have the baby's clothes, bibs, mittens, socks, and more bought and pre-washed, whether they were bought new or hand-me-downs from older siblings or cousins.

If you have more baby gear to get, now is the time to do so. See if there are good deals from baby stores like Bambinos and Beyond on playpens, high chairs, and other items the baby might not need immediately. If there are, you can buy them now, but if they're not on sale, you might want to wait a little longer. However, some baby gear like cribs and car seats should be bought now because the baby will need them as soon as they're out.

Remember to do a thorough cleaning and baby-proofing of your home to ensure your baby's safety. 


It is important to start thinking about purchasing baby items, even during the early stages of your pregnancy. This will give you plenty of time to research products and ensure you get the best items for your baby. There are a lot of products on the market, so it is important to take your time and find the ones that are right for you and your family. Make sure you have all the newborn essentials before the little one arrives, and get them from a trusted baby store so you can be certain of the quality.
