What all do you plan on buying... - Page 2

post #21 of 28
We got rid of everything the last time we moved a few years ago. I've already bought 12 used KL0's, 6 newborn wraps, 24 newborn and 24 infant prefolds from GMD. I still need to get some small covers and some wool then I'll probably pick up a few fun fitteds and covers once we know the gender oh and wipes.

If it's a boy I have a few friends with baby boys who are eager to pass on their clothes, if it's a girl I'll pull out what I have left from mine and see what more we need.

We've got to get a carseat, a queen size bed to replace our worn out full, I'd like to pick up a co-sleeper off of craigslist, a moby wrap, a dresser for their things, a diaper pail and maybe a moses basket. Then I think we're set unless I've forgotten something which is likely.

I NEED a new carseat. That's the only thing that's necessary. Other than that I MIGHT get a new diaper bag and possibly a new sling.

Well, I wasn't planning on buying much for this baby, but since finding out that there are two babies baking, I will need to get my butt in gear and start shopping!
We need:
- two infant carseats
- another crib
- a moby D wrap
- lots of diapers! (we'll be using disposables for the first couple of months until the babies grow into smalls then we'll start cloth diapering)
- two bundle me covers by JJ Cole
- a baby scale
- a bigger diaper bag

- still undecided on if we should get a double stroller or not, might wait till after the babes arrive to decide if we need one

- maybe a double breast pump too, but that's another thing we'll be waiting to purchase until after the babies are born if I see the need.

not much! we have a lot of baby stuff from our other two. ive leant most of it to my mom for her foster baby, but ill get it back when i need it.

we always get or are gifted a sheeps skin for each child.. its a special thing and both my kids love theirs now that they are older..

one thing that im debating is ;getting a new car seat. the one we have has been used by so many babies.. we got it new for my son (he will be 5 in december) its been used by friends for their baby, my neice, my daughter, my moms foster baby.. im not sure if its still safe after 5 years and so much use (no accidents though) ill have to look into it.

i would like to buy myself/ baby a new mattress of some kind.. preferably organic cotton or wool futon, but its $$$ that we dont have.. but maybe i can manifest it!

otherwise we need a few cloth diapers (i knit the soakers myself) and maybe a few cute baby clothes from the thrift shop..

my list is pretty short

Well, I'm leaving the clothes to family and friends because I'm very "particular" about the gear and furniture. That being said...

I still need to buy:
  • The carseat
  • The boppy pillow
  • the crib, mattress and bedding set
  • A playard/ travel crib

Well thats all the big things I still have to buy, but their are so many little things I need to stock up on like washclothes, pacifiers: and I haven't even begun to think about diapers! I have so much to do and not enough time to get it all done:

I'm planning on buying cloth diapers, cloth diapers, some cloth diapers, and oh yeah, some cloth diapers. :

We have e v e r y t h i n g we need for this kid, as we have 3 sets of very enthusiastic grandparents who bought the sun, moon, and stars for ds and then some: , so we need NOTHING but cloth diapers.

My best girlfriend today saw these pink bibs in a baby store and said, "oooh, if you're having a girl I am so buying these..." I said "NOOOO!! Buy me a pink cloth diaper instead!!" She said fine, she'll buy me a pink cloth diaper....and the bibs. LOL.

We love our Toyota Sienna 8 passenger mini van.. I cant imagine life without it now lolol

Anyways, we are going all out buying everything out there since this is our last and I know I wont use half of it but half the fun is buying it lol.. Yes, Im weird. Ive just always loved baby products.

Sooo I have left to buy:

crib bedding
room decor (lamp, wall art, paint, etc.)
some more blankets (im used to spring babies in FL)
some more clothes
bassinet (we already have 2 in the bed so I think Im going to put the baby in a bassinet until hes a little bigger to fight off the big kids)
glider seat (not the adult glider but the baby glider i think its called soothing motions glider or something?)
swings (1 upstairs, 1 downstairs)
playpen for downstairs so the big kids dont kill the baby.. lol. when my 4 yr old was 2 and my dd was a newborn (not to mention 4 lb preemie newborn), my oldest ended up jumping onto her feet first at full speed!! so yeah, a safe place to lay the baby is a must lol
oh and another double stroller for disney and a triple stroller (4 kids ages 4 and under!!)
and then i just need little things like pacifiers (didnt use them last time will this time), soap, lotion, another few pairs of nail clippers (we lose them like crazy), a few more pairs of baby legs, a few more hooded towels, and 2 new boppys (our old one got puked on and even after washing it, its still stained and I would rather just fork over another $25 lol.) Im going to get 1 for upstairs and 1 for downstairs..
oh and a miracle blanket..

Wow, my list is pretty short compared to some people LOL
I need
- a few cloth diapers, we actually plan to do natural infant hygiene this time around.
-an infant potty, though that can wait until the baby is around 4-6 months, whenever the baby can sit up.
-a sling for my dh, he's very excited I have a wrap, so I don't need one.
-a carseat. We plan to get one that is from 5-80lbs, rather than the usual infant carseat.
-a few baby clothes, cloth wipes, and those crazy blankets that I ended up using for everything from spit up to actual blanketing, and maybe some organic soap.

What I would love to get, but not planning on:
-a quinny stroller Even my dh is swayed to the quinny after we looked at one in Sears.

I actually gave away all of my baby stuff, including my books. The only thing I wish I still had was the cloth diapers and the blankets seriously, they were invaluable!
