    Maybe some of those sun screens for the back windows of the car. And a cute little "baby on board" sign lol! :)

    Also you should pry look into a bottle/nipple brush for cleaning them.

    cratch mits, hat for coming home in, lots of soft loo roll for you, for after the birth. i also like to stock up on lots of goodies a week or two before, stuff to keep the kids amused, chocs, nice puddings, micro meals for lazy days or when youve been up all night, a nice warm blanket to put over you and baby when doing the night feeds.

    keep the list going, im getting ideas myself :)

    thanks ladies clothes and things for my hospital bag is all sorted its just the big expensive things i need checking.x

    girls as for nice soft loo rolll it will still feel like sand paper after you have had stitchs my advice would be to use a baby wipe feels nice and cool and cleans at the same time.x

    no going to buy a bottle warmer as i will be making bottles fresh and then using the microwave 20 seconds and a good shake sorted thats what i did with gert.

    luckly i only paid £10 for my moses basket and stand and £15 for my crib so both cmae to less than a moses basket would cost on its own,x

    well i can offically say i've now got everything i need for my little man just need to find somewhere to put it all now fxd i move before he arrives otherwise he will be sleeping in the hall lol
