    i dont know but waned to see what you had already got. i have got most clothes but thats it so far. I better pull my finger out but until we have bought our cot not really sure what to buy. where is the best place to get baby towels and are they essential, can you not just use smaller normal ones.? i have so much to learn!

    The difference with baby towels is they usually have a hood so you can kind of wrap them up while they are drying. we got ours from babiesrus, and one came with our bath set from mothercare x

    You can boy moses/pram fitted sheets (they'll do for either) or just a flat sheet tucked it. I also found a folded flat sheet under babys head (tuckedin well) in moses basket/pram worked well. When they are sick during night you can just whip that off rather than stripping whole of moses basket.

    Regarding bath towels, theyre just novelty really, i got a couple cos they look cute but they really arent essential, you can wrap a baby up in a normal towel xx

    all the sheets i've looked at say to fit pram / moses basket so they must be roughly the same size!! one advice I got from a mom was to get fitted ones in everything as the other ones just roll away from the mattress xx

    Thanks thats a great idea! The flat sheets i have are massive though so maybe if i got a pack of normal bed pillowcases would they be any good? Or just smaller flatsheets. Lol. Xx

    Thanks re flat sheets, i got a bundle which had 2 fkat sheets, 2 fitted sheets and a massive fleece blanket! Lol.

    Thanks re the celkukar blankets how many do i need? Is it safe to use the fleece ones and when is best to use them? Also do you just use 1 blanket at a time? Lol. So many questions!

    Xx

    You're gonna want way more vests and baby Gris, unless you plan on having to do washing 24/7! At first in his changing bag I'd have about 3 vests and sleep suits just To take out with me as spare change of clothes

    I personally wouldnt use fleece blankets at bedtime or while they were very little. How many depends really, when is baby due? In winter I'd probably use a flat sheet on top of baby, and then 3 blankets, you can add to it baby is still cold. Obviously if you are using a baby sleeping back you would just put baby down in that or maybe an extra blanket if very cold xx
