Buying things before shower?

Rach. Pregnant with 🌈👶🏼#1 •

Hi ladies, first time mom here. Baby boy due in late August. My shower is in mid July. I have not purchased a single thing for his nursery yet. My girlfriends keep telling me not to purchase anything for him until after my shower.

It seems unrealistic to me to think that a shower of under 30 people are going to furnish my entire nursery and I’m starting to want to nest.

Is it safe to buy some essentials like the crib and glider at this point? Any feedback is appreciated!
