3 months is supposed to be the bad-luck cut off.
I started knitting his baby blanket at about 2 months I think, waaaay too excited!!
Ask friends & family for hand-me-downs you won't regret it! Kids go through and incredible amount of clothing & new stuff is SO expensive!! Even if all of the hand-me-downs aren't in the best condition, my son as a whole pile of "dirt shirts" for playing in the garden in.
Plus I got things like brand-spankin' new cloth diapers that I love & never would have bought for myself but now use ALL the time on my little guy
That being said, run out & get summer clothes RIGHT NOW (Ooops - Australia, I guess winter clothes
) while they are on sale. Then wait until after Christams, everything goes up before christmas
There really is nothing wrong with buying before you got pregnant or in your first 3 months!!
We have so many hand-me-down clothes I still have a bunch of stuff that is brand new that Lucas never got to wear so I haven't bought a single thing for the new little one (although gramma told me she did get him a few sleepers, apparently she forgot I have like 20+!!! I know, I know, they are too cute...). I'm a really bad mommy because I haven't even started on his blanket & Lucas' was long since finished by now :S. Then again we haven't really settled on a name yet.
