I think at this point I would kill for a cleaning service!
This one was unplanned but I had only given things away to friends so I know I can get a lot back. This thread is great because until right now I hadn't thought of all that we would need but here is a quick brainstorm:
Bassinet (on loan)
Swing (on loan)
Breast pump (on loan)
Fix velcro on Bum Geniuses
More prefolds (I might try and make some)
Figure out if car can fit 3 car seats and with what kind of car seats. I would rather pay for newer, smaller car seats then get a new car.
Some new soft home-made toys (obviously not needed right away)
new cloths and wipes
some new undershirts
boy clothes? I won't know until after baby arrives. I should have enough unisex stuff to start out with if it is a boy - maybe a couple new warm sleepers to get us started.
It is going to be COLD here when the baby is born (-30oC isn't out of the question for most of the month) so I'm thinking we will go for a bucket-style car seat so I can carry the baby into preschool when I have to drop off my eldest daughter since I also have to wrangle my second daughter in and out of the car/school. Although I'm thinking of ways of how to get out of preschool duty for the first month or two after this one is born - especially since it will be via c-section and I can't really carry anything for a while.
Things I have:
Obscene amount of girl clothes
Ergo, ring sling & moby
Crib (although currently occupied and we won't need it for a while after the baby is born).
Single and double stroller
lots of blankets
