With this one (#4) we won't need too much stuff. Although stupid me got rid of all my baby stuff, sigh. I think I will invest in a nice double stroller (sit n stand probably), a new infant seat, bouncer and swing (that I will get in neutral colors so I can give them to my sister who will be TTC soon). If its a boy, all new clothes (grr! Im such an idiot!) and thats about it :)
As an IBCLC in private practice may I give a little advice about used breast pumps (what I have experienced)? I know that contamination is what most people think of, but often if you are getting it from a sister or friend this is not so much of a worry...what IS a worry though, is that consumer-grade breast pump motors are technically only rated for ONE YEAR. And are meant for moms pumping a few times a day, 5 days a week. They don't just burn out one day- they die a slooooowwww death. Now if you are using it to pump here or there, or after you have an established milk supply, it MAY not be as much of an issue...but if you have IGT, are exclusively pumping, have a baby not latching, etc. you should always use a rental-grade pump early on. Plus, the Medela Pump in Styles are known for mold contamination, since they are an open barrier system- much more of a concern if you ask me than worrying about catching another moms disease. HTH!
