    Ohmygosh lol I have NOTHING at all really. My baby shower is next weekend and I know I'll get more. So far we've bought our travel system and some odd clothes and bits.

    My mother has purchased our crib mattress, a baby bouncer, a bath, a bedding set, and some blankets.

    After my baby shower my mother is giving us $500 and I can't wait because I'll order our nursery furniture right away. I'm so anxious to get her room all set up!

    I need a baby bath - think i may be getting it as a gift though =/
    baby towels - might just use hand towels

    I still need a baby thermometer, nail clippers =/
    I need to buy bottled formula for hospital

    I also need baby monitor - if baby is going to be sleeping in my room for first few months is this needed straight away?

I bought some wooden letters that spell out her name the other day and have painted them and have decorating plans...but I need #1 - the furniture and #2 - the room to be cleaned out lol

    Only need a cot mattress which is no rush as he'll be in the Moses basket in my room for a while nursery is pretty much sorted, decorated and looking like a real live nursery. just needs the new stuff we were given as a gift putting away and we are ready, hospital bags are ready and waiting too. Not bad considering we only moved in yesterday!!

    We have nothing yet apart from 3 little outfits that my Mum has bought! I know exactly what we are getting, though, so it's just a matter of ordering it all. We're going to do the pram/car seat tomorrow so that will be our first big purchase! Then next weekend Mum and I are doing a big baby essentials shop and then I guess I'll order the nursery stuff in the next couple of weeks, although the room isn't ready for it all to go in yet. I'm excited to start getting everything now and will be on mat leave next month to get everything ready, yay :)

    I've got most things...main things left to get are car seat, rocking chair (for me :p) and soft furnishings for crib. Not doing babys room up until we know what we have as they will be in our room for at least 6months

    Just ordered some freezer trays for milk from amazon - they seemed useful, but who knows. Otherwise, one thing we don't have are diapers - we have enough for about two weeks of few different brands - just to test them out and see if little guy's bum prefers one brand over the other. All items are purchased and organized at this point - we also have overdone it a tad (a cosleeper, a bedroom wood crib, 2 traveling cribs and another less fancy crib for grandma's house - seriously!!! and they were all gifts, too).

    When I was born, I had no room for myself, no crib and maybe three outfits. Also a few bottles and the ugliest stroller mom could find in the entire former Yugoslavia. No car seat, of course.
