    Firstly, even though you do get through quite a few vests in the early days, 30 is a bit... astronomical! Same as 20 pairs of socks. And 15 sleep suits. Some people can't afford this many of anything - and even though we could afford it, we had about 10 vests, 7 sleep suits and 10 pairs of socks and we did just fine. My LO had reflux too, so we DID get through a stupid amount of clothes.

    Yep, i've bought 30 short sleeved vests too and although it might seem a lot they really weren't that expensive. Also have 11 long sleeved vests and 12 sleepsuits. I'm worried we don't have enough sleepsuits but DH has said no to buying any more until we need to buy the next size up. I've only bought one little pair of shoes though, just tiny canvas like ones, like pram shoes I guess. I only had one snowsuit so i bought another one y'day but I think that's it now for clothes etc. Might need to get a couple more blankets though for the cot. The sleeping thing is really confusing me :headspin: xx

    Muslin squares LOTS of them!!!! Great for when feeding baby to catch posset and also for covering up when BF. Also for posset after feeding and at random times!

    Antibacterial gel for in the changing bag

    Treat for in your hospital bag - you deserve a reward after giving birth - I have maltesers!

    Ooh and some milton fluid and milton wipes - the wipes are great if you are out and about and want to change baby but want to give the pull down change table a wipe over. Milton fluid means you can make up and drop dummies etc in for quick clean and have a spare in there - much easier than having to use the big steriliser every time as you can make up some in a bowl with a lid.

    Sports top water bottle - for when feeding baby so you hgave a drink handy and you can knock it over without spilling everywhere!
