I picked up a used Onya and Scootababy on craigslist yesterday! So now for carriers I have the K'tan ($20)/Moby ($25)/Onya ($100)/Scootababy ($75). I am leaving the Boba and Mei Tei on my registry and am still considering getting a ring sling. I also got a used wet bag and some snappi's.
I figure any carriers that I end up not liking I can just resell and since I got them used there is likely to be no loss except maybe in shipping. I was really on the fence about the Onya and I won't really know if I'm going to like it for awhile..but I found it in brand new condition for such a great savings I couldn't pass up the opportunity to try it out.
We also got some hand me down clothes from my friends as well as some breastmilk freezer bags and sanitize bags.
Since I"ve taken a few things off my registry I've decided to add some things that I will need further down the line like a booster seat that can be used as a high chair (still attaching to the chair so it's a small footprint) for early feeding. I also like that it's easy to travel with.
I also added the bjorn potty (although I do plan to use this right away as I'm going to try out EC ;) ) but that can be between my husband and I...shh
I also researched baby shampoo/soap, disposable diapers, disposable wipes and put them on my list as I know these items will be bought anyways...and this way I can steer them towards ones that I would actually use. If they buy other brands that I can't return they will be donated.
There is now plenty of things on my baby registry in all price ranges with things we could use. I also added comments of where they could buy the items locally and I will be created a Baby's R Us registry based on the items on my Amazon registry. We're also going to ask people to bring their favorite book to read to a child so we can get a starting book collection as well as a paleo frozen meal (we will provide recipes) to help us during the first few weeks. I'm sure clothes will be given and I'm not too picky about them and I expect mostly newborn and 0-3 mo so they dont really need mentioning or on any list.
I still need to buy some EC specific items that aren't going to go on the list like... some prefold belts and keep my eye out for used baby leggings. Also we are buying a twin mattress during the president's day sale.
