The original post hurt my brain and I gave up trying to decipher it.

I had the same problem with hubby and my mum not just when LO was first born but every christmas and birthday since.
What I had to do in the end was give my mum a fair limit, explain to her nicely that although its epreciated we just dont have the room for too much and everyone needs to be sensible especialy when 90% of stuff that is bought for a first child doesnt actualy get used.
As for hubby I told him to get over it, its going to happen, that you have talked to her and explained the situation but he also has to realise its a first grandchild and will get spoilt so hes just going to have to bite his tounge but if she goes other the top you will talk to her again.

Yeah it's hard isn't it. Bless your mum for her heart of gold and her excitement for her first grandchild. I made it clear to people before we had a scan at 10 weeks that I don't want anything buying yet because it would upset me to have baby things hanging around the flat if god forbid the worst happened. Now my partners mum got us a little bag with bibs and booties and cuddly toy in for baby for Xmas but we'd already had a scan by then.

I agree with the person who says "I want to choose my own stuff" too. I'm very, shall we say particular, haha rather fussy. I have a very set mind about what I do and don't like an what I do and don't want for our baby (partner is so laid back he's bloody horizontal) I've made it clear to family that if they would like to buy for baby we would really really appreciate it but please ask and we can discuss it together. I think my parents want to buy cot or pram, as do his parents. So one will buy one and one another but I will choose both because its our baby and its going on my house! Also asked people to not go crazy on baby clothes before we know the gender because I'm not keen on the unisex stuff and know I will just end up using more gender clothes. I'm just trying to not let people waste thee money by being straight with them and luckily, as yet, I haven't offended anyone but hey, there's plenty of time for that yet!

If you dont understand a thread try another one as it kind of comes across a little rude to post somthing like this.
Not being able to comment is one thing but a reply just for the sake of stating somthing like this is a bit off.

Not having a go just saying

I'll take that as a compliment since I don't particularly care either way.

Are you seriously trying to offend people? BnB is no place for nastiness. If you don't like it, you know what you can do....

I am ammused by the irony of waisted time reading somthing but then further waisting time pointing out a failure to understand rather then just moving on.

Enekai, I also had a hard time reading the post but there's no need to be a rude b****.

OP, I agree with you. I don't want unnecessary clutter, even if it's well intended.
