    Hi

    As some of you know, my brother and his wife are expecting their first at Christmas. I've said to them that either which way things go with us, I think it's unlikely that we'll go and visit when the baby arrives. It's a 2 hour drive which is not terrifically far but if things don't work the last thing I'll want is to coo over a new born baby and if they do, I am going to be the most anal mother to be in the land and won't want the drive during a risky period. (Risk of miscarriage with IVF is pretty high).

    So, my question is.... I want to be able to get something really nice for my new neice or nephew so that my brother and sis-in-law know that there is no hard feelings and the new addition will be very much loved. I also want something I can buy online as I try to avoid wandering around baby stuff shops as I find it all too painful. My parents will go up to visit so it can be biggish and I want something that will last more than a couple of months.

    Any ideas?

    I've been looking all over for really nice wooden toys. I'd like a wooden cow or elephant or something like that.

    Any suggestions where to look?

    Tam, I'll show you mine if you show me yours! :shock:

    Have also got some Natalia New Mother Bath Soak and Mozart for Babies CD. I'm going to get a mini bottle of Moet and have ordered a book of nursery rhymes. Only thing left that I want to get (aside from a box!) is a teddy bear of some kind. I've given up on the wooden toys as I just can't find what I want! Hard to please.

    Can anyone recommend a nice teddy bear for a baby? I'm thinking something traditional...
