Actually we no longer recommend doing pre- and post-feed weighs. The margin of error is too great. Monitoring wet nappies and weighing every few days is much more reliable :-)

I guess it depends how important Steiner is to you. If your neighbour is not a Steiner teacher then he isn't going to get a Steiner education. Really you are the only one who can make that decision....

Do you have any neutrals among your daughter's clothes? I'd sort them out first. Then, I'd get whatever else I needed secondhand. Op shops, FB pages and garage sales.
