Help!


Hey ladies!

I was wondering if and what you have all started buying for your bumps? I haven't bought anything yet and having a mare about what pushchair/travel system to buy, what type of sleep aid will i buy due to only having a small 2 bed flat and the baby having to share a room with us to start off with. Do i get a moses? Could i use my travel cot l have with a sleep buddy to stop baby rolling? Do i get a Chicco next to me? A normal cot? There are so many different items you can get now! So much to think about.. and i would have already got these things when i was pregnant with my 2 DDs. I am being so laid back about everything this time lol. Too laid back i think but now i am starting to want to spend now that we have found out we are having a BOY this time! So excited, just a shame i cannot decorate a nursery etc but it will come in time.

P.S not sure if i have posted this in the right thread but will post the same thing in another section of the forum too.

Thank you. x

It's so difficult to know what to get, theres so many new items.

I haven't brought anything and not planning to until after my 20 weeks scan, want to know the gender before I start buying anything! Still got bags of time though, and will keep me busy when I'm off work and bored!

I haven't bought anything for this baby either, will probably start buying cute little clothes and stuff after my 20 week scan. Things like Moses basket, cot, buggy, car seat etc I have in storage from my son so I don't really have any big purchases to make.
By the way, I had a three wheeler and I really liked it. It was so so easy to steer (compared to the mamas and papas sola with 4 wheels which I had when he was really little) and more compact when folded.

Oh and in answer to your original questions, me and dh were in a one-bed flat when my son was born until he was 2 so shared with him, I had a Moses basket because my sister gave it to me after her babies but if I hadn't been given one I probably wouldn't buy one. They are so cute but there's no reason baby can't just go straight into a cot and save you £50+ on the Moses and bedding. The only advantage of them is you can move baby from room to room while they're sleeping (actually, you're not meant to do this haha...but I always did but just carried the Moses very close to the floor so if the handles did break he'd just bump down a little bit). Other than that they're a bit pointless if you're on a budget/short on room.

I got my cot from ikea and it was great, my son stayed in it till he was 2 because as well as dropping the base once baby can sit up, you can also take the sides off completely so it basically becomes a little bed. So cheap from ikea too and the mattress was cheap but lovely. I actually pulled the mattress out the other day to see if it'll still be good for baby #2 and it's totally fine!

I've started, more so since finding out we were having a boy. I didn't need any big items other than a double pram which I now have, everything else is bits and pieces.

Personally I wouldn't use a travel cot for everyday sleeping, I think a proper cot is a much better option. kinder valley do a good (cheap) space saving cot which looks great if you're short on space!

We've gone for an oyster 2 travel system, a cozee by tutti bambini (next to me crib but personally I think looks nicer than the chicco next to me) and nothing else yet!

I started around 10 weeks with DS3. It was only the basics such as nappies, wipes, creams etc. Bigger bits as I got further along. For him I had everything come 32 weeks.

This one I haven't yet - except for a couple of sets of custom sheets I have on order for this little Miss. I have to get more bottles, a baby wrap because I don't want a double buggy, another cot, capsule, quilt, bumper, skirt (all of which I have to have custom made because I can't buy what I want). I have a few clothes and a heap more to pick up on Monday. This whole year has just been harder than we'd ever hoped it to be so we have a small Christmas so we are ready to go when Kairi is born end of Jan. Getting ready for her is going to be down to the wire. I hate not being in control. And just to add insult to injury, DS3 is going in with his 2 older brothers so I also have new bunks to buy so he fits in their room. I'm hoping things start to get better soon.
