I've started buying more since we found out we are having a boy. We have decided on all the big stuff just not bought it yet but we have a swing, bath, change mat a dloads of clothes and cloth nappies.

Personally I wouldn't put a baby in a travel cot as an everyday sleeping solution I'd rather get a space saving cot or crib. We are getting the tutti bambini co sleeper for this little man as space in our bedroom is tight. Once he's in his nursery he'll have a cot.

X-ginge-X - I hope you have a nice surprise from the sonographer! We had 2 girls so this time it's nice to be having a little boy but because of being in a flat I hate hoarding things so got rid of pretty much everything.

Talia12 - I literally got rid of everything because of being in such a small flat, I did keep a couple of bags of baby girls clothing and a bag of neutral too and we did have a for but because our stuff was just stuffed into our shed by other half as I don't like going in there because of spiders, when we last did a tip run to empty it we noticed that the headboard of the cot was snapped so we binned it too so all we have is a mattress and I went to morrisons yesterday and started stocking up on nappies and wet wipes. My auntie has 2 bags of baby boy clothes in her garage which I'll pick up today so me and the girls can go through them together. They are so excited to be having a little brother even though my eldest wanted another sister to start off with. I really want a cossato, but I don't know just 3 wheels look weird to me lol. Saying that about the cot though I think my in laws said their cot is Ikea which they will let us have to replace our broken one.

Blake12336 - that's what I was wanting a next to me bed or something. Isn't there sleeping aids you can get to go inside of them with baby? I know it's only been 3 years since I've had a new born but I feel like a new mum all over again lol.

Wackymumof2 - Tell me about it I am dreading the Christmas this year lol we are doing 1 big present each and then a few little ones. Not going mad as we have a holiday beginning of September too at Butlins which is going to cost an arm and a leg. Trying to get so much overtime in before I go off on my maternity but trying not to over do it as I do care work and it's hard work some days. I really wanted to breast feed but I'm.not going to stress myself out about it as I wasn't successful with the girls so I need to get bottles etc.. I need everything! Lol

Aww congrats on having a boy like us! So exciting for you all. I'm trying to get my partner more involved on the but it side of this this time as he let me just get on with it but I bet he wish he never as he ended up pushing around a pink pushchair haha. I keep asking him to have a look for a travel system that he may like so we can decide together. Seems like those tutti bambini's are quite popular. I'll have to take a look and show partner as I've only been concentrating on the chicco next to me cribs. X

Completely off topic but is the oyster 2 good, been eyeing this up ever since I decided to buy a new travel system as old one is way too bulky. Just wondering from someone who's seen and handled it in person?

I had the baby jogger city mini from when my son was about 1 until he grew out of it, it's a three wheeler and it's super popular. I see people using it EVERYWHERE haha. I did really like it BUT I don't want to use it for the new baby because it's forward facing only and I liked being able to look down at my son when he was a baby (the sola is forward or rear facing reversible). My husband is already mad at me for saying I'm getting a whole new buggy when this one only got used for a year and a half, but I just don't like the idea that I'll be out walking and baby won't be able to see me! Although my sister used forward facing from birth with my nephew and he's not too traumatised haha But just for me personally. I remember serious buggy screaming when my son was a baby and think it's easier to calm baby down if they can see you.

I've found a travel system in Argos that's 170 for the forward facing buggy plus car seat which fits in to face back, I think that's a really good price (it's joie nuva). So I'll just order it without my husbands blessing haha. But I'm not going to get any big purchases till probably 25-30 weeks onwards. You still have heaps of time!

I wish I could buy more stuff earlier on, but I just don't have the space to store it. Baby is going to need their own chest of drawers in my son's room as we can't spare any drawer space for clothes, so frustratingly I feel I can't buy much until we have that!

Christmas will sure be tight! For all us January mummies I think! But for the best reason ever

By the way I totally hear you about the spiders! When we moved into our flat and had our first ever garden, my husband put up a clothes line and thought I'd be so happy. I used it once, when I went out to bring the clothes in there were two spiders in them and I have NEVER used the clothes line again!
