    Hiya girls

    I just had my cot arrive and was really excited was just looking at bouncers which was one of my questions - What kind of bouncer did everyone get? or are getting?

    But after texting my best mate about it I feel a bit down. I text saying that my cot had arrived and I was now looking for a bouncer. I said that as I go back to work next week and work off hours I wont have time to look around or order anything and also once I go on annual leave (before maternity) I will be going to my mums (who lives about 2 hours away in London). I don't want to order anything then as it will be a hassle bringing it all back up here. Plus by this time I don't want to be worrying about getting all the baby stuff.
    In addition i will be having a lot of family events over the summer so got to plan around that.

    The reply I got was that I need to slow down. and thats it. Now I don't know whether it was my hormones or what but its made me feel a bit crap.

    Am I being over sensitive or an idiot? I feel really annoyed about this too.

    Sorry but I had to tell someone and didn't want to moan to hubby.:blush:

    I get told that all the time when I start planning ahead for things. People tell me that there's no need to worry about that yet, or just concentrate on you for now. In all honesty I think they, and your friend, are just trying to be kind and don't want to encourage us to stress because of the baby......but I completely agree, it can feel like disinterest and it's bugged me when people do it. Just take a deep breath hun and let it go. If you want to plan for things plan, just come on here and do it if other's aren't supportive/helpful as we're all in the same boat and understand exactly why you want to get things sorted.

    I opted for a swing chair, rather than a bouncer, which was more pricey but I've heard good things about them and they can be great for settling baby. Bouncers are great though. I would say that some of the one's in the most expensive price bracket may be a bit unnecessary as they're possibly all much of a muchness however much you pay, but if you're going to opt for a cheaper one perhaps choose one where you can adjust the position of the chair from laid right back to more upright. That's the advice my sister gave me anyway - she said those kind can be more supportive. Hope you find something nice - come back and show us once you've picked it!!

    That's cool news about the cot!

    Sorry you're feeling down.. Unless there is a bigger picture, I prob wouldn't take it too personally.. I don't imagine that there was any malice in it! But I understand how these thigns can come across, as I had a similar problem with a friend and ended up in hysterics (i think mainly hormone related!). I found talking to some one else helped and then talking to the person in question after I had "calmed" down and expressed my opinions.

    :hugs:

    Which cot did you get?

    Thanks guys. Your words made me feel better.

    K477UK - well my mate has got a little girl of her own who was a month early and another on the way. considering there is a chance junior could be on the small side which would mean being induced early I would rather have everything ready. Plus the last three months I just want to relax.

    The cot I got is the following: https://www.tuttibambini.co.uk/index.php?main_page=product_info&cPath=&products_id=437

    It doesn't come with a mattress but the cot was on sale and it has adjustable base drop sides and teething rails which I couldn't find on others the same price!!

    CARAMEL - I like the swing chairs but I dont really have space for them so I was looking at this bouncer:
    https://www.next.co.uk/shot.asp?ext...a1907&nxtv=000&nxti=0&bct="bouncer"

    What do you think?

    And thanks again you've both cheered me up.xxxxxx

    for my nephew who is now 6 months we got a vibrating winnie the pooh bouncer in green. it was great to settle him and he'd often wake up if we turned the vibrations off!!!
    we are going to have this one back now as he's grown out of it and has a new rocking chair, again with vibrate!!!
    cant wait to start shopping. going thurs to start having a look around!! only 15 weeks but hoping to spread the cost!

    I got a chicco relax and play bouncer from tk maxx for 34.99 and think it's great, reclines so they can sleep, has carry handles, is just fab! I have a swing, but my son was really refluxy and i worried the swing didn't help when he was very tiny (thats just me) so will save that for a bit xxx

    We got this one for our ds

    https://www.amazon.co.uk/Fisher-Pri...P1G4/ref=sr_1_2?ie=UTF8&qid=1239114244&sr=8-2

    Its superb, its good for travelling. My ds had reflux and needed to sleep nearly upright and this was perfect. My dd now 3 1/2 loves it too. Its quite pricey but they dont grow out of it like a normal bouncer. He also had a regular vibrating bouncer from mothercare but fell out of it shortly after he was over a certain weight (I cant remember exactly, but he was still within the guidelines so I am really cautious of them now).

    Good luck.
    xx

    The cot's gorgeous Nikkip, and such a good price.

    I love that bouncer too! It's so so cute. Can't believe the price either! £30 and it vibrates!! Definitely looks like a good pick to me hun.

    Glad you're feeling better now sweets xx :hugs:
