Mine was the Medela Mini-Electric breast pump. Firstly, I bought it when I was in my 3rd tri, then found out I couldn't b/f once LO was born (very low supply that wouldn't increase no matter what I tried...or very hungry baby...either or). Then, the lactation consultant didnt recommend using it unless you have a very good flow of milk, so I had to go and rent one from the hospital anyways (which was also another waste of money as it didnt work anyways).
On a side note, my SIL (she's evil, so don't feel bad) had the same thing happen to her, but asked to buy my used Medela Mini-Electric. Instead of telling her it was useless anyways, I shut my mouth and took her money, so about half my money was recovered. Better then sitting in the drawer
Nappy bin......urgh. They seem a good idea but they bloody stink!! I prefer nappy bags and a wheelie bin!!
I think nappy wrappers are a great idea. They are best used with a young baby as the poo's are a bit less smelly. We still use ours for Bethanie's nappies but we have to keep it in the bathroom and I bleach it everytime it's emptied. Although I do agree as someone else said in this thread, a normal bin would be easier/less expensive, those cassettes are a joke ££!

You mean the Lindam one? I loved that, great for night times.
*Highchair - bloody things.. take up all the room and Bethanie wriggled down and got stuck in it. Id go for a baby booster seat kind next time.
*Baby monitor - Waste of money, unless you have a big place/are planning on leaving baby in their own room. Bethanie was with me all the time.
*Baby bath - bath supports are a better idea
*Bottle warmer - Jug of hot water was good enough and id use the microwave more quickly next time.
*Groegg - had a paper thermometor that did the same thing, and it was free
Can't believe how many of you didn't like Bumbo, I love them! Suppose it depends on the baby.
Nappy wrapper used it once it was more hassle than its worth, still lying in garage now and i dont intend to use it this time!!!!!!!
Highchair, so big and bulky it takes up to much room so i ended up buying another one.
Loola bebe confort pushchair, i bought it as a second smaller buggy that could face me it cost £250 and is the biggest waste of space ever. Its really heavy, the frame is not sturdy and the handles are wobbly.
i just thought of something whilst i was sorting through maddi's room... tiny little baby hangers! they're so cute and i seem to have hundreds of them, all purchased through mothercare, but really i should have either, used the one's that came with the garments or purchased bigger ones x
