What have you bought/made for the baby so far? - Page 4

post #61 of 90
I just bought the rest of my quilting fabric for the monkey quilt last night. I really was waiting to find out which direction to go- and it was really fun. So I just washed it and dried it. Next step is to iron and get to quilting.

No school tomorrow, rainy and chilly, so a perfect day to quilt!!

I just bought $183 worth of diapers! I found a good sale and got 10 FB, 3 HH, lots of inserts, a wet bag and some Scarlett Secret.

I have 3 packs of gn onesies that I got a while back buy 1 get 2 free. The kid will probably wear onesies and a diaper the whole summer. I'll have to buy clothes no matter what the sex is since DD was a fall baby.

I have 4 HHOS from DD and a small BB that a friend bought me. I'll probably buy a few more pockets off of DS unless I find another good sale or get the motivation to make some diapers.

I've been looking at diaperswappers trying to find some good deals... but still haven't bought anything yet.

ETA: I take that back.. I found the same website as Rachelsmommy and bought:
6 KL1s
3 BSWW NB covers
4 Thristies SM covers
12 preemie PFs
1 wetbag
1 SWIMMI SM swim diaper

Plus I found on DS FSOT board:
8 Size S Bluberry stuffable AIO's for $5 each
and a bunch of inserts.

I wish I would have added more PFs to the first order, but it's too late now..

I've bought a wrap and a few diapers. I'm trying not to go overboard since we still have most of Julian's diapers. I also bought a coming home outfit. That is it so far.

We have so much stuff already, left over from DS, so we won't need nearly as much stuff this time.

The only new thing I've bought this time is a pack of Depends! They had them on a good sale and I took advantage.....after reading that they are the thing to have for postnatal care. I guess that's more for me than for the baby.....although I would never have bought them if I weren't having a baby.

We bought a new glider with Christmas money. Our recliner was on it's last limb. It was after all bought by my grandmother in the seventies. It's yellow crushed velvet. We also bought our sewing machine. A lady my husband works with gave him a ton of fleece scraps to mess with for diapers. Hubby bought a package of disposables size 1 to use a reference for a pattern. We figure we'll probably want a few back ups anyways. I almost bought a sling the other day. It was fifty percent off, but I held off. When I came back the one that was in my size was gone. Oh well.

Really the only things we still have to have is a new mattress which we can probably hold off on since we're going to co-sleep mostly, and a car seat. We have it picked out I'm just waiting a bit more to see if I can find a sale.

I just ordered my diaper stash! I have 48 prefolds (24 sm, 24 l) and 8 covers (4 s 4 m). I hope that's enough...

I also beefed up my registry with cute gender specific clothing, without one single pink dress on there! I doubt people will go out and buy those specific items, but at least they'll have some idea of what I like.

I'm so excited! My new sewing machine just arrived! ::
Before now, I have borrowed my Mum's and we have sort of shared one between us, but now I have my own! (I think she was very happy to give me Christmas money towards one )

Now, I *suppose* I should get on with the backlog of mending etc that has been piling up waiting for me to get a machine...but I want to do fun things for the baby! I'll have a look through the previous posts and see what you're all making.

I am officially addicted to diaperswappers now I am trying to only buy diapers that are $5 or less though. I've only bought diapers and supplies for this baby so far.... still waiting a little less than 2 weeks to find out if we need to buy clothes or not (I saved all DS's clothes)

Hmm....i'm wondering where LizzyQ and RachaelsMommy found the steal on the diapers. Anyone care to PM me a link? Thanks.

I am addicted to diaperswappers, too now!!! I bought 8 newborn covers, a wool wrap, and two size small covers. I figured I might be able to register for prefolds at the birth center boutique. They have some diapers, but not a HUGE variety.

But they will probably be sold out of a lot or most by now. Good luck!

I got my BBB Mei Favorite Baby Deluxe yesterday. : You can see pics here, wearing my 4.5 year old (43 lbs!) while 19 weeks pregnant. It was actually *comfortable*!!!! I couldn't believe how weightless he felt.

And no, I don't usually wear the 4.5 year old. But the mail had come, and my 2 year old was asleep, so I used what I could! Had to try it out right away!!!

So the carriers are all here. Now to start making diapers after next Wednesday. I should probably make a list of what patterns I plan to use and what fabrics. Last time I did all Very Baby fitteds (serged), and they were great, although the newborn size doesn't last THAT long. I'll throw in a couple other patterns this time, like Fattycakes, Hippy Hippy Snap, the free Darling Diapers newborn, and Little Comet Tails One-Size.

Thank you so much for the link. I tried to snag some good deals, but had no luck. I am glad that so many mamas had good deals on new CD's though.

I need to head over to the CD section to figure out what are the best CD's. There are so many different choices!

I looked earlier and there were still some diaper covers and preemie PFs.

I tried lots and lots of different diapers with DS, and I like Prefolds/covers and all-in-ones the best. I did buy some fitteds on that website because they were super cheap, but I generally don't like them that much. There are lots of cute and very expensive CDs out there.. so if it's money you want to save PFs are the way to go.. AIOs are super easy and work almost like sposies, they are great for convenience.

You can try a few different things and see what works best for you and your LO

--

I traded a mama on DS for 2 NB/SM AIOs that are mama-made for a $10 gift card that was given to me and I won't use.. score!

I have nothing at all for this baby. We just found out it is a boy so we could start shopping, but honestly, I haven't done a thing. I don't even know where to start with getting stuff for the baby. I have had kids before, but my youngest at home is going to be almost ten when this baby comes. it is like I am starting from scratch.

We don't know the sex yet so haven't bought or sourced any clothes. If it's a girl, we're set. If it's a boy, we'll need to do some buying, etc. My friend is sending me back the cloth dipes I sent her when her little girl was born so we won't be needing any dipes or covers. We bought a car seat that's 22 lbs to 80 lbs for our 3 year old and will be using the Eddie Bauer 3-in-1 for the baby. Right now we very conveniently have 1 car seat in each car so it's already made life way easier doing things like dropping her at daycare and stuff.

DH made our first cloth diaper last night! It's a T-shirt one. We used to work at a video game store and we have a ton of t-shirts from old releases between the two of us. Most of them are stained or faded so they are becoming diapers. It turned out really cute. He only needs to make one more soaker for the inside.

I also ordered our car seat today. I decided to wander Target today, and the car seat we wanted was on sale for 20 off. I ran home to check and it's on sale online too. Hubby found a code for five dollars off and I had an e-gift card from that "sale" on Marathons so it ended up being ten dollars cheaper to buy online than at the store. Not much, but a thirty dollar savings I guess.

I spend time on diaperswapper.com daily too. I haven't bought anything yet though. I don't know what we're having and most of them are not gender neutral that I've seen. I suppose I could always buy a few either way and either use them anyway or sell them again.

Cool.. your DH sews? That's awesome!

I have both boyish and girlish diapers and covers... I guess I figure that they will be wearing boy/girl clothes on top of the diapers, and I can always trade them for more gender specific later.

I am trying to hold out buying too much stuff because, really, if we are having a girl I really do want pink and purples! I found out in one week, 3 days! -- plus most of my friends plan on getting me cute cloth for the new babe too.
