So glad to know you love the BBS! I have heard great things about it. I've started wrapping my 2.5yo with a woven wrap more, and like the idea that the BBS is less uber stretchy than most stretchies. I also totally fell for that pattern! Hopefully it'll find a home here and be much loved.

Bobbi, how awesome about the KKAFP! And trying things is always the best way to go. Glad you get to try out a Beco!

I forgot about my never-ending cart at www.happygreenbee.com . I love the bright colors and that it's all organic. The clearance section is really inexpensive, which is were all of my future purchases are coming from!

You just had to go share that, Nikki, right? Now I have to spend a bunch of money.

Now I want a KKAFP, too!

okay, I think you guys convinced me to get a BBS. They have some beautiful patterns too! It will be hard to decide.

well, i showed my mom the baby hammock and she loves it and wants to get it for us..so i ordered it today from a place in Canada. it even has free shipping! they dont usually carry the organic/wool version but they are special ordering it for us. im so excited. im totally going to set it up as soon as it arrives so i can paw it.

i went through my cloth diaper stash and im totally set there i think...i may get a few new newborn prefolds and maybe a few bamboo fitteds just for fun. but we dpnt need anything really..
oh, and i ordered 2 organic cotton bras for myself from here http://www.rawganique.com/CLwomansintimates.htm there are a bunch of mamas ordering them in my community all together. im excited!

After seeing and reading this post I had to go look at my GROWING list of things we need/want. We got rid of several items, we we're replacing a few things and adding some to the list.

This is what I have so far:

Car Seat*
Stroller
High Chair
Crib Bedding
Breast Pump*
Baby Monitor
Swing*
Bouncer*
New wrap or Beco*
Nursing pads*
Milk storage*
Lansinoh*
Disposable and Cloth Diapers*
A Boppy*
2 Fleece Buntings*
And of course all the cute little socks, hats, sleepers, gowns, etc....

The starred items are the ones I will likely need right away. The others I'll get as needed, because really, my newborn won't be using a crib but will be in the co-sleeper next to me and they definately won't be using the high chair until they can sit up. The biggest debate is whether I need a pump. I never used one with DD2, and I'll be at home FT....

I just scored a like new KKAFP (khaki colour) for 18.00 PPD from TheBabyWearer! I'm so stoked. I have one (in olive green) but its getting pretty worn and I think having 2 will be great.. I always missed mine when I was washing it (spit up, pee.. ect) and now I can colour co-ordinate

Updated my list with some things I've accumulated. I added up how much money I need for baby stuff and OMFG. I don't even need that much, but it's stuff like paying the mw, food to store in the freezer, random odds and ends...I have no idea where I'm going to pull this money from and I only have 4 months left. I shouldn't have paid off the credit card so that I could pay off some more pending things like baby stuff and mw costs.

I got a free bassinet from freecycle today. Not sure if I will end up using it but it is pretty, solid wood bassinet that would fit easily in our room.

I'm starting from scratch this time and boy, how things have changed in the last 11 years! We just found out we are expecting another girl so now the shopping can begin.

This is what I'm wanting to get before the new babe arrives.

pack 'n play
swing or bouncy seat
cloth diapers (undecided if I want to use cloth, sposies, or a combo yet)
clothes (I have 3 gowns so far)
carseat/stroller combo
carrier of some sort (I used OTSBH with my 2 other children)
breast pump and a few bottles (used avent before)
baby monitor
boppy pillow
nursing bras
prefolds for burp cloths

This time around I'm having to tweak my parenting. My other children are older and I've now become the soccer mom driving my kids to and from their activities. Before I was able to just sit at home with baby and toddler/s, this time will not be that easy. On the other hand, I will have 3 kids in school so my days should be pretty quiet. Should be interesting!

what a fun thread wheeeeee!

this is baby #4, so we have lots of the big stuff already. BUT i did donate quite a few things after baby #3 as we weren't sure if we were having more babies, and, we were running out of room! so, a-shopping i have been...

we have:
-van
-bassinet
-bouncy chair
-crib
-playpen
-exersaucer (aka circle of neglect)
-jolly jumper
-play mat (tummy time etc)
-bumbo chair
-cuddly wrap
-mei tai (that i made myself after baby #2)
-2 other pouch slings
-plenty of clothes for both genders
-selection of toys
-receiving blankets/hooded towels etc
-baby monitor

i bought:
-new graco stroller (we currently have a double for #2 and #3 (they are 15 months apart - they don't need it anymore, i just find it easier to shop if they're contained ) i had already donated out single one - oops BUT, i got a super awesome deal at superstore (canadian grocery store with some housewares etc) it even came with an infant car seat (which we already had).

-new swing (donated the old one, and i find them a lifesaver for the first bit) you don't use it for long, but, oh man, did we love ours. i scored another sweet deal at superstore the same day as the stroller. i went in for bananas and came out with a stroller/car seat and a swing
-beco carrier (i think it's the butterfly 2) i really wanted a carrier that i felt utterly comfy using hands free while holding hands/chasing my 2 y.o. and 3 y.o. - i just didn't ever really trust the other kinds i had...i dunno. i hope this one will work out how i anticipate. i researched the ergo vs. beco and picked beco. time will tell!

-new BF pillow; my brest friend. again, donated the other one, and i hated the other one. it was a boppy style, but made by jolly jumper. (my BF woes will appear in another thread/forum). i really hope this one will deliver on the promise of less shoulder/back fatigue.

-big muslin receiving blankets that can swaddle

i want:
-"birthday" outfit

-fleece swaddling blanket (i live on the frozen prairies in an older drafty house)

-cloth diapers (currently researching types/styles etc) i had some before, but wasn't terribly successful with long term CD. i donated all that i had. so...

-a small chest freezer to fill with pre-made meals for the post-partum period (all we have is a fridge freezer, and it's quickly becoming inadequate for a family of 5 going on 6) my ILs said they will get us one, bless them

-few more teething toys that are safe (sophie the giraffe, wood rings, etc)

-BIG stash of herbal galatagogues, and domperidone, mother's milk tea, etc

-stainless steel bottles as the above might not do the trick, as with the other 3

i'm sure i've missed stuff on all of my lists, but that was fun to share
