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

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.

For me:
*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.

never used it

*Changing Table
useful but only for a short period of time, then is just in the way!

*Baby Prop
he hated to on his side, later learned that back is best now they say

*Heartbeat Teddy
never did anything for him. Plus it was too big to be in his crib with him.

*baby bath
you can just do it in the sink with a towel. The baby outgrows these too fast.

--other not so useful items: baby wipe warmers, bottle warmers, not sure on the room temperature devices. I guess if you want to buy one. I do not feel they are needed however (personally).

Nappy Wrapper bin - haven't used it once, nappy bags are much easier and cheaper than the casettes.

Bottle warmer - Olivia started out on room temp milk, and won't have anything different!!

I got a babasling, just didn't get on with it at all, no matter how I laid him in it he just didn't look comfortable. We got on much better with a tomy baby carrier x

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
