Katrina-- Oh don't worry! Us too!! We went grocery shopping on Friday and spent $175 to get the "freebie of the week" which is a $20 camping chair (the freaking thing has a cooler built into it, seriously!), and then when he bought the seat yesterday, DH stocked up on more fruit etc, so we got a second matching chair. We don't have a patio set yet, and we do camp, so they should be nice. Otherwise, I can probably sell them both for $20 and get some money back. lol.
I -could- have outdated info, it's not something I've looked up recently, but last I checked they don't normally do the versions with vbac's, just because you have that increased risk of rupture, same as how inductions are more risky (though that doesn't stop them... lol).
We're taking the seat out tonight to play around with it, so DH can hopefully feel more comfortable. ITA about the bucket seats btw, they are so awkward to carry, and even when I'm at my heavier weights, my hips are wide, and stick out, so I'm constantly bumping the carrier against a hip. We were offered up an expensive peg perego bucket for the first couple months to borrow if we want though, and I might go with it, just because it's December, and not uncommon for it to hit -50C here during that time... so bundling inside and then moving outside sounds good... We'll see though.
Speaking of goodies-- Recommendations for nice organic/natural baby 'stuff'? We're looking for a set of lotion, wash, etc. Something that hopefully isn't too hard to come by.
