I got cloth nappies, no one told me though if you have a small baby they will not fit in them until they grow so we could not use them right away. Then once we started I got a few infections in my c-section so stopped until I got better and then decided it was way too much hassle. I had a big ish cloth stash though. My son is still BF and he is 9 months tomorrow but because it is so hard the first few months I ended up buying bottles and different pumps (until I found the right on) because I expressed a lot once he was about 3 weeks until 4-5 months.

I would say to bare in mind what family may buy. We have had 3 pushchairs (once again until we found the right one) and my FIL bought the first, a friend gave us ther old one as a second and my MIL bought the one we have now. I did think no one would get anything when he was born and not only did he get a lot then and utterly spoiled at Xmas but every time I see my MIL she has a big bag of (baby gap, pumpkin patch, Ben Sherman and ect) clothes for him.

We have a list under $1,000 for all nursery furniture and furnishings and plan to save at least three months rent ($4500) by the time a baby is born. Ideally, we'll have saved closer to $10,000.

Ahh!! My friend recommended me a pushchair called Bugaboo (I think thats how it's spelt). She has the same health problems that I do. The problem she had with pushchairs, is that if she lent on the handlebars, the chair instantly tipped over. With our health problems, it would be great to be able to lean on the handlebars and not risk the chair going over. She said the great thing about the Bugaoos are that when you lean on the handles, the chair doesn't tip forward/over. But looking on Mothercare, they range from 400 - 800, Jesus! I think her mother bought hers.

That's a really good point! I'm hoping to buy as many pre-loved as possible (upgrading to a few new ones later on maybe), but hadn't thought about getting them really small for the first few weeks, would hate not being able to use them!
