I've never used a Graco stroller (HATE they way they look)- but IME, you won't get more than a couple of years wear out of an umbrella fold stroller. We've got through two in the past six years.
What we're planning on owning:
-A ring sling
-A wilkinet (www.wilkinet.co.uk
) Somewhere over there will do something similar.
-A cot- you call it a crib. Baby will sleep across the width when tiny for naptimes- so if and when the time comes that cosleeping doesn't work, we have it handy.
Possibly a moses basket, if we see a cheap one.
-3 wheeler travel system- probably either the Britax Trekker, or the Mamas and Papas Ecko 03. We live in an old Roman town with an obscene number of steps and some horrendous footpaths- not many actual cobbles, but that's the best I can say for it. Probably the reason so many of our buggies hit the dust...
-A kitchen sink (instead of a baby bath.) Baby tends to end up in the bath with me anyhow.
-A new lambskin. Both the boys have natural ones- Alex's is patterned, Isaac's is undyed black wool. I'm thinking about going for another black one, because the colour is so gorgeous- I love natural black sheeps wool.
-A bouncy chair in the bath, so I can wipe. (the bath is next to the toilet.)
-A changing mat.
-A basic pump, probably the Isis.
-Snowsuits, hats, vests, and gro-bags.
-Probably a baby sleeping bag.
-An obscene number of muslins.
And I THINK that's my total list. A nice blend of luxury and practicality...with having a November baby, toys, playmats, etc, all make great Xmas presents
It's not like s/he is really going to understand Xmas this year.
