    lots of antibacterial hand soap! As i FF i'm forever washing and sterilising!
    Have you got a few pairs of scratch mits and socks? We had to keep socks on Tabitha for a few weeks to keep her tootsies warm and she loved scratching her face!
    Perhaps another sleeping back incase of nappy leakage?

    Hope that helps :)

    Looks like you are very organised to me!!

    I notice you are only 18wks - is this stuff from a previous baby or you just been enjoying shopping!!

    Couple little cotton hats and mits and socks.

    Anna was born with claws and within a couple of hours of being born she had scratches all over her face!

    Baby nail clippers.

    Baby hair brush.

    Sudocrem/ nappy rash cream just to be prepared

    Sleeping bags.... most of them say only use on babies 10lbs+ so just check - we used just cellular blankets for first few months and it is definitely a good idea to have another spare sleeping bag.

    Tog depends on how hot your room is. Recommended temperature for nursery is 16-18degrees and if thats the temperature then baby can be in a 2.5tog bag.

    I am in Scotland and thats what we use all the time.

    Anna was in blankets in her moses basket for the first few months then went straight into a 6-18months bag. We have 2 that size.:flower:

    You need all year round tog of 2.5 for your winter baby and at least 2 sleeping bags so that if baby messes or is sick on one there is another available, I guess thats only if you plan on using one every night though,

    have you got nappy cream?
    hmm you seem really organised to be honest, i cant think of anything else! :D

    have you thought about you too hun for the hospital and after birth?

    I would say they are useful, it means if your just making a short trip to do shopping or something the baby can stay in the carseat you dont have to wake him or her up to transfer to the carrycot, you can take the seat outta the car, and click it onto the chassis! my handbag clip is called a buggy buddy and i got it off amazon for £5 and the cupholder £12 xx

    Oh my, I was going to wait at least until about a month or two before the birth to sort all this stuff out....:blush:
    I am very impressed with your organisational skills and knowledge about all things baby :thumbup: I still feel a little unsure about everything really.

    The only thing I have got so far is a new car as I had a small accident in my old fiesta 2 weeks ago and wrote it off :nope: Now I am trying to find a pram that suits me and OH, and that can fit in the boot. I just posted a thread about it, the Uppababy?

    Anyway - Good luck with getting your stuff together! :flower:

    A little healthcare set, nasal aspriator, and nail file etc etc,
    come in really handy to file sharp nails without worrying about clipping their fingers too, and the nasal aspirator is really handy for bunged up noses as you cant use much else and they always seem a little snuffley,

    Also i have picked up some gripe water, and infacol, as our first has some troubles with an unsettled stomach and trapped wind, and i had to send out OH at 2am to get something to help him so just a suggestion, (i have now got a little medical kit for my sons teething and general pains and keep it stocked up for emergencies).
    I also will be buying a air humidifier (vicks one has good reviews) this time round as i used to buy the karvol plug ins for stuffy nose, colds but it costs a fortune to keep buying the refills....

    hope i helped somewhat.... xxx

    I've finished buying everything- yes even the stuff for my hospital bag- so am keeping myself occupied by knitting little one a blanket. I am crazily organised as well. I love feeling prepared and ready :thumbup:
