    What was the one thing that you could have barely lived without while pregnant?

    Or is there something that has come out since your last pg that you're so excited to use for this baby?

    I just don't know what to register for and what's a waste of money!

    Belly and foot rubs, but those are free lol

    as for what to have for baby, I cant stress enough the invaluability of a swing! swings are a god send really.

    Good swaddling blankets, and my baby sling, he could be snuggled up next to me whilst i washed up etc its going to be even more useful this time round when i need my hands free to deal with a toddler! Oh, and a pregnancy support pillow, mine made a great feeding pillow afterwards, which was invaluable in those first unsure weeks! Also a white noise CD was very useful to start with, then some nice soothing music later on. :flower:

    I do not have kids yet, but have been taking care of children since I was very young, and now I am pregnant so I finally get a chance to have my own little one. <3

    I defiantly agree on registering for a lot of swaddling blankets, burp cloths, and onesies. We did not do a baby registry because we are in a different country now, but thankfully my grandma is sending us some of the above listed things.

    I also think a swing is amazing, but if you cannot afford a swing (we will not be able to afford one until a couple months after baby is born) Bouncers work amazing too. The one we are getting vibrates, and sings soothing music. You can also gently bounce the baby. Here is the link to the one I am getting, but they make them in all different types.

    Goodluck!

    For baby, LOTS of muslins, cloth nappies, a good quality fabric sling (this time I'm having a wrap and a ring sling,) baby gros and vests, a changing mat and that's about all that was essential for me.

    Thanks! I have a snoogle body pillow but I don't use it much. I'm going to have to, it's getting more uncomfortable to sleep on my stomach and that's the only way I sleep!

    I LOVE my snoogle! I loved it sooo much that I have one for the bedroom and one for the living room. It has been a God send as I cant get comfortable anymore.
