    I adored Jacks baby bath seat from Mamas and papas
    http://www.mamasandpapas.co.uk/product_details.php?id=4552499&type=I
    It has a non slip teddy shape on it that you can't see in pic, got all money back when i sold it

    I loved Jacks Bumbo too, best thing invented in my opinion, though no way will it last to 15 months like it says, Jack was out of his ages ago
    Again made money back when i sold it
    they really hold there value

    Seren's crib - got it for £35 brand new and she was able to sleep in it til she was 6 months. Looked gorgeous too.

    Also her nappies - all of them.

    Medula breast pump - bit noisy but did the job.

    Tripptrapp highchair, she loves sitting at the table and its a lot easier for me to store in my house.

    My best buy was a nappy bin. So many people told me not to get one cos they were a waste of money and to just chuck em in a normal bin but they are so great ...and smell free! The liners ARE a bit expensive though :?

    Milk formula dispensers. Great for days out, night feeds and when LO goes to stay with his nanna! Saves you having to buy the seperate cartons which (if you have to buy them all the time) can work out quite expensive!

    Changing station - although I bought the travel cot that has the station on it with nappy stacker, & tray that holds wipes, cream etc so its been used for that whist in moses then onto a bed for when she stays with her nanny etc also useful for playpen!

    [Edit I take this back - it was handy when we didn't have a room for Caitlin but afterwards a normal £20 travel cot would have done]

    Angelcare monitors with sensor mat
    [​IMG]

    Starlight swing from mamas and papas
    [​IMG]

    Bumbo seat she sis up with us now either whist we're at the desk, in the bath, doing things in one room so she can see us and I see future potential for eatting snacks on (bought tray), sititng with us for dinner.
    [​IMG]

    Lotty ladybird play mat - nice cushy soft and she adores the toys but we did take down the bars - she wasn'tkeen on that!

    Fisher price flask! Ace idea although not used much saves you pestering resturants, cafes for a jug of hot water!

    I didn't actually buy this it was given to me but I have found it so useful thought I would mention it to you.

    It's called a "V-pillow" (basically a big pillow in the shape of a V)

    My mum gave one to me and I have had loads of use out of it.

    When I was in the latter stages of pregnancy it was very handy to use in bed to help me get to sleep by having it between my legs or sort of resting my bump on it.

    I also used it to prop up baby for tummy time and sitting up.

    Post all that I've been using it in bed again as my back is still not right from being pregnant.

    I'd highly reccomend getting one.

    Best buy has to be baby sleeping bag/ grobag. Use when bit older mine started using at 3 months, complete god send as from this age they kick around so much and will kick off covers. After getting them to sleep last thing you want is baby waking from cold!
    Don't need to buy expensive 'brand' ones as many shops do own brand ones now
