Ok, what do you have left to buy now?

post #1 of 25
Thread Starter 
I need:

A carseat
A stroller
more socks
diapers
A few bottles and a few cans of formula ( I like them around, just in case)

I think I am all set on everything else.

So, what's everyone else lacking so I can get an idea on whether or not I am missing anything?

I would love to buy a new car. However, money is not going to let that happen. I just can't afford a bigger car payment right now.
Thanks for reminding me about the Bf pillow. I have been wanting to get a Boppy!

Well, I was beyond thrilled the other day because I found a BRAND new in the package miracle blanket for $3 at a garage sale, and also a new in the box never used, sleep noise machine, the exact brand I had been wanting, for $5! Woohoo! lol I got some new luxe wool breastpads off Diaper Swappers this week too.

I still need to get -

dresser
double stroller
glider rocking chair - searching garage sales and craigslist for all the above
nursing pajamas and robe from Motherhood or Macy’s
cloth diapers - the Kissaluvs outlet opens this week so I'm getting some then!
Moses Basket - I like the pink Amy Coe one
Solarveil fabric blanket - solarveil.com, I'm going to buy the fabric and make a blanket out of it to protect baby from the sun!
Haba toys - Trix and Maxe
books – Dr Sears Baby Book?, Let the Baby Drive
Earth Mama Angel Baby post partum stuff – happy mom spray, bottom balm, bottom spray, and bath soak herbs
mama cloth
more cloth nursing pads
and some things I'm going to make - some crocheted wool diaper covers, a taggie blanket, some soft cloth blocks, soft shoes...
oh, and I'll pick up some more Burts Bees baby care stuff and a pack of sposies for the beginning, and a booger sucker, lol, I dont want my kids sharing one!

Thats about it! A much smaller list than our registry with our first baby, lol.

Because I will be going back to work when the baby is 2 weeks old so DH will need bottles. I haven't always needed formula, but I like to have it around just in case. DS2 was so little he had a really hard time Bfing even with a breast shield. The doctor also suggested supplementing with formula to help him gain weight faster because he was only 4 pounds. This is my fourth, so I know these are things that I am going to need from my experience. Other mothers that can stay home longer and Bf solely... I envy them, but this is how I do it.

I still have to buy everything. LOL Moving while pregnant sucks. The move takes precedence over shopping.

Sorry to hear that. Take it easy while you are moving. We moved when I was 8 weeks pregnant and I was so stressed that I started spotting.
I hope everything turns out good!

formula changes the flora in the gut of babes.
i would suggest pumping and storing that for when you go back to work instead.
and please remember, Drs are NOT gods they dont know everyhing. the BEST thing for your baby is YOUR breastmilk.
and if you need to suppliment do it at the breast with a Lact-Aid or SNS with your own milk.
forumla is for extreme cases but it gets abused way too much. especially in our american society

I have two boys, ages 5 and 3. However, dh threw out some very important items (knowing full well that we were having more kids). I also need to supplement some things, and if we find out we're having a girl, start a girl wardrobe!

car seat
maybe a stroller?
pouch sling
Moby or similar wrap
AIOs
diaper covers
girl clothes

I'm actually feeling pretty clueless this time around - like I haven't had a baby in 15 years, rather than 3! I think it may be because I'm working full time now, and I don't have time to think about ANYTHING at all!

I want another diaper changing table. I got rid of mine from when Marah Jade was a baby. I have a dog that likes to steal poopy diapers so I don't want to change on the floor. There is a stroller I have been eyeing with a toddler stand/sit spot I have this funny idea that I am going to exercise
