Nice! Maybe I should order our carseat ASAP... I should go look at their price-matching offer... I was just happy with the 10% off it would be the same as on amazon, b/c with the free shipping both ways, it was where I wanted to order. But if I can get them to price match, too, that will cut down on the 10% amount but still be even cheaper!

Updated my list. I have so much to buy/do and almost nothing accomplished. Such a slacker! I am about 2/3 way done with one pair of longies, though.

i hear you! though i Do feel like im getting there.. slowly but surely...

after months of feeling totally unmotivated at knitting im finally in the groove again. i knit a hat 2 days ago and its already washed and blocked and waiting for baby! and im about 1/2 way through a knit sleep sack (which is too freaking cute for words) im so in love! i think everything i knit from now on with have little owlie cables at least its inspiration, right?
im thinking longies to match the hat with the same cable pattern on the legs..maybe socks as well? oh and a vest..

Has anyone with those OXO lights noticed they hum? I was going to order them, but saw that in a review and know any noise will drive me bonkers.

Kitty-mine never made any noise, and that would drive me crazy too. Can u post a link to the exact ones you're looking at ? I had the set made up of the bright pink/orange silly looking kid ones.

Updating my list right now. We finally got the rest of dh's pitifully small summer pay and are buying as much as we can before we give the rest to the midwife. We are going to a concert next week that we bought tickets for in spring and we really don't have money to go, but can't waste that $233 now without hotel/gas/food. I'm not happy about that. That was my La Bassine and hammock money.

Kitty, I had the same ones you posted the link to but in orange/pink and they never hummed either.

I suppose there would be more reviews mentioning this if it was a common problem?

Regardless, I will make sure wherever Im ordering mine from has a good return policy juuuust in case. Im also wondering about the single yellow light...it must be somewhat new, I havent seen it before. It says base glows also while the light is out of it-i wonder if this would be a big plus since then you could see in the dark where to place the light back into (should you want to place it back, rather than just turn it off and leave it wherever, which is totally fine).

Another question-are they bright enough to read with? I read every night, even with a newborn and need something dimmer than my current light. My old one died and this was gifted. It's like a spotlight.

Kitty, its been awhile since I had them last, but from what I can recall they are not bright enough to read with. They emit light, but the light does not go very far..does that make sense?

there is a $10 off with no minimum purchase deal if you go to ebates and then type in allergysuperstore, look for the link where it states $10 off with no minimum purchase.

i just used it to get some california baby sunscreen i needed, and their shipping is only 3.99

plus supposed to get cashback with ebates,dont know how that works yet as i just signed up for it right now. should be fun though!

That makes sense, thanks!

Anyone have a recommendation for a slightly brighter light? Good enough to read with and use for diaper changes without waking the house up? Preferably plug in or rechargeable?

It is practically impossible to get gender neutral newborn clothes on Ebay. I guess this means I have to drag my butt off to the thriftstores. Sigh...

Oh, too bad. We're going up to Qualicum Wednesday to spend the day at this amazing beach dh's family has known about forever. Close, but not close enough I guess. Enjoy the Island - the weather was pretty bad today, but is supposed to be nice for the rest of the week.

Has anyone ever had American Apparel baby lap tees? They have so many awesome non-pastel colors that I am very tempted to get a few to try out. I love using longies all the time- and onsies are so worthless even with an AIO. But the cute long sleeve lap tees- those are awesome- and so hard to find..... Any one with a personal review?

Yep, we had several AA lap tees for DS3 to go with his longies/shorties/whatevers. I liked them a lot! There used to be an easy way to do co-ops on them but no longer. Boo! Oh, there is some size variation in their products, but they're nice and soft and stretchy, too.

sweet. I have about 9# babies- so I was going to do the 3-6 month and not worry about the shrinkage. Now I have to decide what colors....

Fern - I don't think tomorrow is going to work...BUT we were planning to come down from Courtenay (staying with my parents for a few days) to Coombs and Spider Lake Thursday, and our time is more flexible then. Are you going to be in Parksville/Errington Thursday as well? (hope, hope, hope) You can pm me if you'd like and I'll give you my email address and cell #.

Got my OXO lights- no humming and they're bright enough for me to read at night if I sit them in the crook of my arm while I read laying on my side.
