    Hi ladies, not sure if this is the right area to post this but I have some questions when it comes to preparing your home for a baby. What are the necessities for a nursery? Obviously a crib is a necessity but what other items would you put on your must-have lists in reference to nursery/feeding/toiletries/etc.

    Top of my list of must-haves is a Nappy Wrapper. That way you're not running round with little orange bags smelling of peach - your bin downstairs doesn't stink of nappies - and you can actually change and dispose of everything upstairs.

    The one thing we get through is shed loads of cheap towels (hand towel size). Used as follows:
    1. Burp clothes are a ridiculous invention unless you are some top class American baseball catcher. The towel stops the burp going on you and your clothes and the furniture.
    2. Also use on top of change mat (I'm a softy and don't wanna put my little babies skin on the cold plastic).
    3. Bath towels for baby. They inevitably poo on them every couple of days so you're washing them more frequently than you do your own towel.
    4. Lying them on when they're having a kick-about so they don't puke on the bed/the carpet, etc.

    etc., etc.

    Ditto Helen :lol:

    I have 8 white handtowels only 64p each from Asda, at the minute Thomas is Sick on everything so they go on his bouncing chair, swing, changing mat etc saves stripping everything down every day.
