    Made some big decisions yesterday on big stuff to buy, especially as lead time for ordering some of it is 8 weeks and actually that's not all that far off them arriving now :shock: (well 14 weeks to go really)

    Decided on buggy:

    Maclaren Twin Techno
    https://www.maclaren.co.uk/index.php?option=com_content&task=view&id=108&Itemid=500

    Car Seats:

    Britax Cosy Tot Premium (came out best in latest Which survey)
    https://www.britax.co.uk/ProductDetail.jsp?pid=5&type=1&cid=5

    and cot-beds:

    Kidsmill, big chunky pine ones

    Look a bit like this
    https://www.kidsmill.com/kidsmill/producten.php?productsoort_id=183&product_id=California_cb2

    Just got to build up the nerve to go and order it all when we'll see that total figure for the first time. :argh:

    Feel relieved to have decided at last as people keep asking us if we've bought anything yet and then looking horrified when we say that we haven't bought anything at all! :lol:

    have you checked out freecycle website - you can get some good stuff for free there and also put posts for wanted - even if second hand it will save you pennies.

    Well, been and ordered everything today. Got quite a good discount so I was pretty pleased. Plus I feel relieved to have sorted the big stuff out.

    Decided that we will put one of the cot beds in our room and put both babies in there together rather than going for moses baskets. Will probably put the other one downstairs early on. Think that'll work?

    Next job is to decorate the nursery which OH is planning on doing over Easter weekend.

    Just bear in mind you will probably have to dismantle the cotbed again to get it up stairs as it probably won't fit through the doors in the house.

    Like the sound of a twin moses basket but hadn't seen them before. Must be bad surfer cos I couldn't find them on that site either Jo.

    Did spot the "Twin Mummy - Twice as Yummy" t-shirt which I thought was ace! :lol:

    Thankfully OH is pretty handy with a screwdriver so he should be ok dismantling the bed if we put one downstairs.
