I've been window shopping the last few weeks. I don't plan to buy anything for a long time yet, but I have some things picked out.
Nicki's Prefolds (the great fit kind - same as Imagine) - Newborn, Small, and Medium sizes to start
Assunta Tiny and One Size covers, plus some wet bags from the same site
A couple Snappies
Ring sling of some sort (either find a used Zolowear or maybe get a new SBP... I just want something cheap, as I'll only use it 6 months)
Thankfully, my Babyhawk Oh Snap SSC never sold, so I still have it (I didn't try real hard to sell it) - LOVE that carrier. Ergo doesn't fit me as well. I like a taller carrier.
I have a Radian, but for winter babies I like to have an infant seat that first little while. A friend has offered me hers, purchased in 2011. It's a Graco. I just need to see if it's front adjust or rear adjust, as she couldn't remember (you would think you'd remember something like that
: ). I'm not sure she really understood what I was talking about. Anyway, if hers is rear adjust, I'll just get a front adjust cheap Graco Snugride 30 from Walmart. They were around $70 or $80, classic connect style (so they fit in the cheaper strollers). I've always been fine with cheap Graco Snugrides. But it MUST be front adjust. I'm not going to deal with the annoyance of a rear adjust carseat, and I can't believe they even make them that way. It's insane.
I rarely use a stroller, but when this baby is born, I'll have two kids on different hockey teams, occasionally playing in different cities, and they both still need help with some dressing. I'd rather have baby in a stroller if I'm needing to help a kid get hockey gear on. Hard to tie skates with a growth on your chest.
I have a cheap, lightweight stroller picked out that will take the above mentioned Graco car seat. I've also been offered a Maclaren umbrella stroller, but that doesn't take a carseat, and I don't think it can handle a newborn, but we'll see. I could also pick up a carseat stroller at the consignment sale pretty easily, so that's another option. Consignment sale starts the day before I find out the gender!
I have ZERO, ZILCH, NADA. Nothing left. Gave it all away. So I'll hit the consignment sale on the way home from my u/s.
(Co-sleeping did NOT work for me at all... Oh my goodness, I was in such pain trying that)
Friends have offered a crib. Yay! I also still have a pack-n-play in the closet, so I'll use that in my room for the first couple months. And there is usually about a 3 week period that I end up sleeping in the den in a recliner with baby on my chest. It's co-sleeping in bed that doesn't work well. Recliner goes ok, though my back is happy when I get back in my own bed and can sleep on either side (and toss and turn throughout the night).
Boppy pillow (I'm so sad I won't have the "big mama" version this time that a friend had made... my DH really liked using that one when napping with baby in the recliner... I might need to make one)
Nursing bras (I'll probably try the Bravado Sublime... looks similar to the Supreme I wore last time)
Dresser to use as a changing table (I do a lot of changes on the couch or bed, but a higher surface is easier on my back, and I need a dresser upstairs anyway... I have NO place to put baby clothes, and the boys are already running out of space in their drawers as they keep growing and requiring bigger clothes!)
Hand pump (really liked the Avent one last time... I rarely need to pump, but if I'm engorged from baby suddenly sleeping all night, it's very handy to be able to pump some off!)
A couple bouncy chairs (probably pick these up at the consignment sale... just a safe place to put baby down when I need to, where they aren't run over by dogs and children quite as easily!)
Diaper bag... Thinking about the Little Tripper from Land's End, but I don't know. I want something big enough to hold a couple cloth diapers, a change of baby clothes, a receiving blanket, and my wallet/phone/keys, plus a sippy cup holder on the outside. I just don't want something so big that you could take everything but the kitchen sink! I hate carrying a huge purse. My current purse is so tiny you can fit ONE disposable diaper in it. That was my "my kids are all out of diapers and I no longer need a diaper bag" purse.
