I won't be buying much... actually, I can't really think of anything we need to buy. Yay.  I'll be making some stuff though. A mei tai and ring sling, some winter newborn clothes (I'm learning to knit!), maybe a sleep sack, possibly some new cloth diapers. Definitely some new inners for the current cloth diapers, the old ones were made from Mum's old terry nappies and they're utterly perishing.

ds#2 was a june baby so if we have a boy I'm set on clothes up until 12 months or so. If I have a girl i'll hit up the thrift stores and such and rely on some hand me downs.

This will be my 1st cloth diaper baby so cloth diapers covers cloth wipes (probably make my own)

environmentally friendly bath and body items..(I love smelly good babies )

Probably stock up on a bit of good diaper washing soap? Any suggestions??

Car seat

A good carrier or two 1 hubby might use as well suggestions on manly carriers??

I am learning to crochet....hope to make something lol

maybe a new boppy mine is shot

 a digital scale since I was allways paranoid about babies intake

diaper pail

wet bag

diaper bag of some sort

nursing necklace (no rush)

teething necklace (no rush)

 

 

 

 


I just love the way kisses make ''booboo's'' all better.

I've not bought much, but received quite a bit of hand me downs from my sister who had two boys, clothing and bouncy chair, a crib which I'm not sure I'll use at all since we plan to cosleep, but maybe for naps?  All of it is buried in the basement so I need to drag it out and see what all I have.  I'll be hitting the garage sales hard this spring for gender neutral clothes.  Other than that we'll need a carseat, I have a Mei Tei and a beautiful handpainted wrap, but want to get something (moby maybe) for the newborn stage, can be hot here in June so light material would be nice.  I mentioned a birthing chair and a side car to Beloved and me made noise about making them rather than buying so we'll see.  I feel really lucky that he is as handy as he is.

I am not sure. I have some summerish clothes since my last three were August babies, but barely wore any of it before it got too cool. I always buy a few new boy and girls things, always resale stuff. I have a swing, but hate the colors. I also have an infant seat, I used w/ the last three I think. I might get a new one if it is close to expiration. I never was fond of it. I need new baby socks. I can't think of much else. I have never really had a full on summer baby. Our twins were born in February in San Diego, but that was long ago I can't really recall what they wore. Oh yeah I remember short sleeve long leg things in the beginning. It will be cool in our house w/ the cooler going and our house is normally cool. I really don't need anything, but I will buy a few bits just b/c I can. I am looking forward to this!

I don't need any gear whatsoever, BUT if this little one turns out to be a girl, I will definitely buy some cute new clothes. The clothes we have are very boyish and have been through 2 boys already, so not all that many have held up super well. And there are such adorable things for little girls here, I find myself drooling over them wishing I could find stuff like that in my size! haha

Manly carriers - my husband and I both used the mei tai all the time with DS from 4 months until 18 months or older.  We got a Kozy with a reversible panel.  I usually used it with the patterned side out and DH used it with the navy blue side out.  I guess that's manly.  :)

I use Charlie's also. 

My SO likes the Beco Butterfly. We all do. It's the best money I've ever spent on a baby.

It's my greatest fantasy to dress in the clothing available to my almost 4yo daughter. Baby girl clothes don't excite me much but little girl clothes make me swoon.

thanks for the suggestions ladies!! I'm so thrilled to start shopping! With us paying for the birth out of pocket we are limited but it's going to be SO worth it!

I will need some new cloth dipes as I never got that many newborn ones the last time around.  I will also need some warmer clothes since I just moved from Texas to Northern California and the weather is quite different!!  Also, if this one happened to be a boy, we would need some clothes.  We still have our swing and a pack n play and that is generally all I've ever needed.  Except for a peapod so we can go to the beach this summer!  :)

There's a tute online for a mei tai with a Velcroed-on patterned panel. You could make one with pink sparkly unicorns and one with chainsaws. :p

We use Rocking Green Hard Rock to wash cloth diapers b/c we have very hard water. Love it! Charlies did not work for us.

I bought my first baby thing today!  I found a second hand aristocrat at the consignment store for 8 bucks :)
