<p>I bought an outfit today! It's an adorable babygap green, navy and white sleeper for 6-12 months. $3 at value village.  Only 12 more days until we find out the sex!  I'm so ready to start 'prepping' things. </p>
<p> </p>
<p>We also bought new sheets for our bed today, so now I know what color I'm looking for, for the sidecarred crib! (We want it to kind of blend in/match our bed.)</p>

<p>I bought a $20 Moby Wrap and a $12 wet bag used. I'm going to pick up a $20 used K'tan. I'm still looking for a Boba, Nuroo, and Comfy Joey. I'm keeping my eye out for good used deals so I can take some things off my registry..especially the carriers since I want so many! :)</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Someone also selling this for $25 and they are going to hold onto it for me for a few months... I really didnt want to spend a lot (or have anyone else for that matter) because I figure we're only going to use it a few times while camping/traveling during the first 4 months:</p>

<p> </p>
<p>I also found a Scootababy for only $75 that looks good hopefully I can pick that up in time. I'll probably get it next week.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>I'm keeping an eye out for the Chicco lite weight plus stroller used as I think it's rediculous to spend $200 on something we're hardly going to use... but I really like the idea of having the option of clipping in the infant seat for when the baby is already asleep.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>I'm also looking for this white noise machine used as it's kind-of expensive...no luck on that front. Somehow I have a feeling noone is going to buy it off my registry but maybe I'll get enough Amazon gift cards to buy it anyways ;)</p>
<p> </p>
<p>The last item I'm looking for possibly used again because it might not be an item that will even be worth it to us..is the cloth diaper pail.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Besides that I am not going to get anything else used and I'm not buying anything new myself as I am going to wait until my shower. A lot of what's remaining I would either not WANT to get used or it wouldn't be enough savings to warrant it.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>I also need to call my insurance company about the breastpump. I know they are covered by law now so the question is which one and if i can get money towards the one I really want..etc.</p>

Birth ball! Thanks for the reminder. I want to get one this time around. How do you know what size to get? The yoga balls I've seen are sized by cm.

<p>I can't remember the size I got last time. It was just a little bit short for me though. Get one tall enough that your knees are a little below your hips instead of level with each other.</p>

<p>Oh no. I think I have a problem. I have become addicted to eBay. I went from having zero baby items to a full closet of baby clothes newborn-12 months...and a few 12-18 months. She even has a swimsuit for each stage 3-12 months. If that isn't bad enough, I also have about 6 pairs of Robeez shoes for her. I know, I know...but at least everything is pretty much pre-owned for a fraction of the retail price! Before I got the itch my mom and dad found a great deal on a travel system--two car seat bases, car seat, and snap and go stroller, pac-n-play, and a co-sleeper for the bed. My neighbors are trying to give me their baby swings, jumper toys and such, so our garage will have some new items soon. Lastly, I have started planning my baby shower (in April) and the Amazon registry is set to go! I want this baby to get here faster so I stop spending money. Must have items left are:</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Medela breast pump</p>
<p>Moby wrap</p>
<p>video baby monitor</p>
<p>birthing tub</p>
<p>Tummy tub </p>
<p>baby socks</p>
<p>organic shampoo/baby powder</p>
<p>first aid kit</p>
<p>microfiber towels/washcloths </p>
<p>baby mirror for the cars</p>
<p> </p>
<p>I forgot:</p>
<p>Breast Friend feeding pillow</p>
<p>breastfeeding cover</p>
<p>more Life Factory bottles</p>
<p>eco diapers</p>

<p>Great! I would like to have this item out of the way, but feel overwhelmed by all the choices. I know the style I want and hoping one turns up at the thrift store in good condition. It can be front or rear facing, in a full pram position for younger baby, then converts into more of a stroller later which is higher up than regular strollers. I had this style for my son and loved it. </p>
<p> </p>
<p>How do you all feel about the color of big items like the stroller and car seats? The car seat I want is black and grey, which isn't what I would prefer but it's the best price by far. For the stroller I'm not sure color matters either, the one I want is usually found in a checkered pattern with a background color of navy blue, not sure that's okay for a baby girl but maybe if the other color with it is green or something....?</p>

I don't worry too much about the colour of strollers. I've always preferred not to have navy blue -- just b/c it was so popular when my son was born, and I like to be different. Our single strollers that we'll be keeping for when they are needed are both red/blue/silver/grey, as is the double running stroller we bought 2nd hand.<br><br>
The carseats are black/grey/lighter grey, and the double stroller we're getting is black/grey/yellow. I've never felt that strollers needed to 'match' the gender of the baby they carried, and always purchased ones that are suited to anyone. My slings on the other hand .... I consider to be *my* accessory, not the baby's so even when DS was our only ,and very little, several of my slings and carriers were decidedly 'girly'.<br><br>
Until now, I've also never actually taken a carseat anywhere in a stroller, so matching the stroller & carseat was a non-issue. For these babes, my requirement was simply that they didn't clash horribly, since I expect to be using the carseats with the stroller at least for a few months as we figure out the logistics of leaving the house with a toddler + 2 babies!

<p>I typically go with black/grey for strollers and car seats, but the stroller I just got was purple because that was the best price.</p>

<p>Just placed a diapers.com order for some random stuff that I'm sure no one will get off my registry; things like basic tee-shirts (not onesies) in slightly larger sizes, the angle adjuster for the carseat we want, baby-proofing stuff, a few sleep gowns that were on sale....stuff like that. It felt great to get a jump on stocking up on things we know we'll need, since we are officially halfway today.   </p>

<p>I'm not as concerned about color matching gender etc, as long as it's a color *I* like, kwim? My DD's carseat is very neutral (black/grey), and the new one we bought it black and red. My stroller is black with a cream stripe. I'd be a little more hesitant to put a boy in a pink carseat, but if I already owned it, I think I'd probably go for it! My carriers are girlyish though, like synepona said, since they're more 'my' accessories than the babys. </p>

<p>Carseat DEFINITELY has to be purple or pink for me! This is the first time I actually get to shop for my own carseats for the kids. All the rest were hand-me-downs or super cheap seats that I didn't like the style or color. This is what we picked out for her and it should last her until she's 6. Which is great, because that's how long they're good for.</p>

<p>I also want "girl" colors because hubby got "his girl" and now it's my turn to have "my girl". Does that sound weird? We love our kids the same, but he has his red-head(he's a red head) and I have a feeling this one is going to have my hair (brown).</p>

<p>Last night I washed all the baby stuff I've bought - new and used (but mostly used).<br>
First off, so much for the limiting pink.  There is a lot more pink/girly stuff available at the thrift and I made the plunge to help myself feel a bit better about not having anything.  It was retail therapy - at a discount. <br>
Fortunately most of the pink stuff is linens and such.  Part of the rationale is that it can be chopped up into wipes or burping clothes and such. <br>
I think I have more than enough now, but still want to get some of the A&A muslin swaddles so they're on the registry.  Will also need flannel, but can get that fairly easily from what I can tell. <br>
I got a couple of tiny onesies, one sleeper, several things in the 3-6 month range and even an adorable owls against pink background PUL cover. <br>
So . . . the shopping is a bit random and whatever seemed to "fit" given pricing or something I couldn't resist. <br>
Mostly it was therapeutic - like seriously therapeutic.  I'm fairly sure if I'm having an off day I can go to the box and unpack some stuff, maybe take some photos to share here, pack it up again and somehow feel better without having to do much else. <br>
I think there will be a lot more cloth diaper items on the registry now, so let's hope my friends/family don't rebel. <br>
I can't promise I won't be going back to the thrift stores, but I feel like I can without the same pressure.  I did test this theory the other day and did well.<br>
We may have found a place that would work for us to move to soon (if they call us back!) which is very exciting.  With a partial clothing stash I feel we could make things work well-enough and I can focus on bigger items post-move. <br>
I also found a pair of Thyme maternity khakis which I think completes my maternity clothing collection for now.  I need to hem them (they were a bit short so I let it out and need to redo the edge),  but they are in great condition.  I do have one more pair of maternity jeans to decontaminate.  That leave me with two pairs of jeans that fit well and a couple (few?) pairs that are just waiting for my butt to get bigger or for me to give up on them.  Also, the pleather maternity pants I got for a dollar some time around the holidays are finally decontaminated enough to wear.  They are by no means comfortable enough to wear for long periods of time, but were useful for walking the dog in the cold the other night.  Plus, they're fun enough for a photo shoot, IMO.  I did also get a maternity coat that I've been wearing fairly consistently and a couple watch caps (new online) to keep my head warm.  It's been nice buying clothing without too much guilt.  With the weather changes here and my sensitivity, it really is important to have layers and keep one's options open.  The last week or so I have lived in yoga pants because I'm going every day.  Not sure how long that will last, but I hope I can keep up some sort of consistency. <br>
So that is my fairly long update.  I am finally feeling a bit more settled and less cray-cray.  Also, having yoga to keep me busy should mostly keep me out of trouble. <br>
I am comforting myself with the knowledge of being able to take photos of my stash for your perusal/critique.  That should also give me something to do that will keep me out of the stores and looking forward.</p>

<p>I found that too with thrift shopping-- pink is the cheapest, because everyone scoops up the neutral stuff first. lol. Between thrifting and the girly hand me downs, --everything-- was pink or butterflies and flowers. lol</p>

In the 10 days since this thread was started, I bought all of the stuff on our diapering list, so we are down to car seats and a lambskin or two on the "to buy" list. My pile of cloth diapering stuff is ridiculous! I'll be posting a picture in the stash thread some time this month.<br><br>
I do wish people would listen to what we need and help us out with those things first since we really need so little, but instead my mom is going to buy swaddle blankets that could be made for 1/4 of the cost of new and <a class="bbcode_url" href="http://alilelly.com.au/" target="_blank">one of these</a>, which is absolutely unnecessary, all because what we actually need isn't fun enough to shop for. If it's a girl, she and my grandmother will both go broke buying clothes (which the baby will never wear because it will be summer and they will be naked or in a onesie all day). <img alt="eyesroll.gif" class="bbcode_smiley" src="http://files.mothering.com/images/smilies/eyesroll.gif"> I don't expect anything for baby #3, really, but if you're going to buy stuff, can't it be useful? /whining<br><br>
I do feel fortunate when it comes to clothes as we are all set for boy stuff and I have 4 friends who had babies last spring/summer that were girl #3 or #4 for them who are all done having kids. Not to mention the other 5-6 who had babies last year that were "only" their first or second girl. So if it's a girl, I won't have to thrift or garage sale shop and I can be picky about which hand me downs to keep because there will be just so very many to choose from. Then I can just sell or give away all the pink crap we get as gifts. <img alt="bag.gif" class="bbcode_smiley" src="http://files.mothering.com/images/smilies/bag.gif">

<p>I picked up a used Onya and Scootababy on craigslist yesterday! So now for carriers I have the K'tan ($20)/Moby ($25)/Onya ($100)/Scootababy ($75). I am leaving the Boba and Mei Tei on my registry and am still considering getting a ring sling. I also got a used wet bag and some snappi's.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>I figure any carriers that I end up not liking I can just resell and since I got them used there is likely to be no loss except maybe in shipping. I was really on the fence about the Onya and I won't really know if I'm going to like it for awhile..but I found it in brand new condition for such a great savings I couldn't pass up the opportunity to try it out.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>We also got some hand me down clothes from my friends as well as some breastmilk freezer bags and sanitize bags.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Since I"ve taken a few things off my registry I've decided to add some things that I will need further down the line like a booster seat that can be used as a high chair (still attaching to the chair so it's a small footprint) for early feeding. I also like that it's easy to travel with.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>I also added the bjorn potty (although I do plan to use this right away as I'm going to try out EC ;) ) but that can be between my husband and I...shh</p>
<p> </p>
<p>I also researched baby shampoo/soap, disposable diapers, disposable wipes and put them on my list as I know these items will be bought anyways...and this way I can steer them towards ones that I would actually use. If they buy other brands that I can't return they will be donated.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>There is now plenty of things on my baby registry in all price ranges with things we could use.  I also added comments of where they could buy the items locally and I will be created a Baby's R Us registry based on the items on my Amazon registry. We're also going to ask people to bring their favorite book to read to a child so we can get a starting book collection as well as a paleo frozen meal (we will provide recipes) to help us during the first few weeks. I'm sure clothes will be given and I'm not too picky about them and I expect mostly newborn and 0-3 mo so they dont really need mentioning or on any list.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>I still need to buy some EC specific items that aren't going to go on the list like... some prefold belts and keep my eye out for used baby leggings. Also we are buying a twin mattress during the president's day sale.</p>

I have both an Onya & a Boba, they fit really differently -- I think you'll love one or the other, but likely not both ... but if you love the Boba early, I think the Onya is probably a more ideal toddler carrier when the Boba gets a little less perfect. The Onya's un-clippable straps make it much easier to get a sleeping tot off and into bed w/o waking <img alt="smile.gif" class="bbcode_smiley" src="http://files.mothering.com/images/smilies/smile.gif"> We plan to set the Boba to the newborn setting, and leave the Onya for DD, so I won't have to switch the setting on the Boba all the time. My Boba is still my fave, but the Onya is working better for right now - for DD who is 2.5, and 23wk belly and fitting over winter jackets.

I have both an Onya & a Boba, they fit really differently -- I think you'll love one or the other, but likely not both ... but if you love the Boba early, I think the Onya is probably a more ideal toddler carrier when the Boba gets a little less perfect. The Onya's un-clippable straps make it much easier to get a sleeping tot off and into bed w/o waking <img alt="smile.gif" src="http://files.mothering.com/images/smilies/smile.gif"> We plan to set the Boba to the newborn setting, and leave the Onya for DD, so I won't have to switch the setting on the Boba all the time. My Boba is still my fave, but the Onya is working better for right now - for DD who is 2.5, and 23wk belly and fitting over winter jackets.</div>

<p>Thank you so much for your experiences with the two carriers! I was thinking the Onya would be better for the toddler stages and Boba better for early on. <img alt=":eek:" src="http://files.mothering.com/images/smilies/redface.gif" style=""> One thing that kind of drew me to the Onya was the fact that it is so breathable, it sounds perfect for hot summer days (you can also put an ice pack in the little pocket in the back). So summer 2015 we might be really putting the Onya to use.</p>

<p>Honestly I put the Onya at the largest setting and it just fit around me 22w belly! Gah! I could have made a height adjustment tho that might have given me more room. This shouldn't be a problem for awhile as I am planning on a 3 yr age gap, and again going to try for another summer baby.</p>

I wear it right under the belly now, and only do back carries lately, it's got lots of adjustment room left that way -- when not pregnant, I tend to do wear the waist belt right on the waist ...My current hip measurement is only up 3-4" from normal .... my waist is up 13"!
