I know. I forgot about breast pads, too. I gave all of mine away. I ordered some tonight (2). I guess I'll need to get more.

Thanks to all of you for the diapering advice!! I was so overwhelmed. Tonight, I went ahead & placed the order:
I just went to and got:
1 x Prewashed Prefolds - 12 pack
- Size - Color: Premium Infant - Bleached $18.00
1 x BabyKicks Hemparoo® Receiving Blankets
- Color: Lavender $8.50
2 x Imse Organic Dribble Bib
- Color: White $5.00
6 x Imse Organic Terry Wipes
- Size - Color: Small - Blue $18.00
1 x Kissaluvs Fitted Package
- Type of Cover: ProRap & Bummis
- Diaper Size - Cover Size: Size 0 - Newborn $255.00
1 x Wool Nursing Pads
- Size - Shape: 18cm Oval
The good news is that shipping is free. And I saved 5.31% since she's having a "MemorialDay" sale.
Hope this is helpful to somebody else who's looking for a diaper package.

This is our second, so we already have the big stuff. The Pump-In-Style, the car seat, the practically brand new swing that ds despised, toys galore. . .

But nothing is ready! Except the cloth diapers. And a few pink clothes. She will sleep in our room, but I'd like to get her room ready anyway.

Our church is having a shower for us in late June - I'll be 37 weeks. Hope I can keep this baby in until well after the shower! There is a possibility that my MIL will drive up for the shower, and I want to give her plenty of time to head on home BEFORE the baby comes!

Here are some things that we still need:
Diaper bag

That's all I can think of. Wow. We are more ready than I thought. We REALLY need to clean the house to get ready for the homebirth. Dh doesn't want to hear this, but I'm GOING to hire professional cleaners. We need to organize and straighten, then let the pros come do their thing.

We are basically all set!
I have her room set up (no co-sleeping here)
and the carseat has new straps, and is ready to be installed
all of the clothes are washed and in drawers.

I was put on bedrest last pregnancy too so I was paranoid and wanted this one all set.

Now, we just need a baby!

Oh man!! This is depressing. I'm not due until Sept. but I know it will come quick. I have two girls and all my main stuff in gender nutral;crib bedding, carseat, etc-. The thought of getting it all out & washed is overwhelming. This baby is a boy so I will get the stuff he can wear (not pink!) ready. Then I will borrow clothes from my SILs who both have boys. It certainly is a lot to think about.

I have too much stuff to list and almost none of it was purchased for this child! I saved everything that we used. The only things I purchased for this child were more sheets since we cosleep and I leak a lot (milk flood!). LOL My last child was a winter baby so we had flannel sheets in the sheet rotation but that won't work this time.

Three maya wraps
4 dozen newborn fitteds (mostly from and kissaluvs)
lots of little cloth wipes
8 newborn bummi pull on covers
two diaper pails and four pail liners
a changing table
two rocking chairs
lots of baby clothing, preemie and newborn - need more socks! I lose them
infant carseat (base installed already)
a couple strollers (with two older children, one with special needs they are necessary for us!)
a new camera
nursing pillow
diaper buddies and lots of laundry soap
several dozen cloth pads
lots of cloth nursing pads
a swing

I don't have a bouncy seat and never did, but I am contemplating one for this baby.

That is all I can think of for now

About the glider Heather do try and get it. It was the only thing I told my DH I had to have when I was pg with #1 and it was a life saver (still is).

I have 3 dd's and according to one u/s I got to find out gender they said it was a girl so I pretty much have everything. Im sure I will end up buying some stuff but so far have everything.
