Subject: Unborn Baby
Message: Hello and thanks for all the time you give everyone. Here's my question:

Is their a source (I am not excpecting you to necessarily provide me with one) for not purchasing items for an unborn baby? Ebveryone says one shouldn't buy things for the baby before it arrives. I'm curious if it's just "talk" like many customs people follow.

Is it an Ayin Hara? Is there even such a thing as Ayin Hara?


Reply: There is such a thing as Ayin Hara, but this one is a superstition that I am not aware of any legitimate source. If anyone knows of a source, I look forward to hearing it. Until then ignore it.

I thought the same thing, until CYA advised us not to ...
Reply:  When I've said that, it is because of the reactions of others involved in the family structures situations. There is no reason to be machmir to rush and buy everything at the last second. Maybe papa should get some sleep, take care of the other kids, go to learn or maybe stock the fridge, etc.
