What would be your 1 big splurge?
 
If you could buy any one moderate-to-high-priced item for your baby, what would it be?

For me, it would one of those expensive side-by-side double strollers that could be used from birth. I would want a side-by-side so that DD & DS could both recline if they get tired :) A moderate splurge for me would be Aden+Anais blankets. They're so cute but I can't justify buying any lol.

I'd also love those blankets. My friend has them and I understand what the hype is all about. I should look into buying muslin, curious as to the prices.

I'd like an amber necklace for this LO. It'll happen but right now it would be a splurge as there's more important things to get for the birth. I'm going to wait until LO is maybe a month or two old before ordering one.

I guess a splurge would be a new baby swing. I would love one to replace the one we have, but I can't justify buying one. A moderate splurge would be some really cute girl clothing bought new. I'm getting a bunch of hand me downs, but it would be so much fun to shop for new ones!!!

Well, our splurge will be a brand new swing that has a plug in option. I will NOT buy a swing that has only battery option, and haven't found a plug in swing in consignment stores yet. I'll keep looking, but think we will end up buying new.

I'm a carseat nazi, so we did buy a new carseat this time around that would specifically fit best in a small Kia Rio, so we got a Chicco KeyFit. We don't have matching stroller as I see that as pointless. We bought a much less expensive stroller for DS awhile back. DS can walk, baby in stroller, or DS can ride and baby be in baby carrier.

And I already kinda splurged on clothing. :p $40 at a Once Upon a Child last Friday. Oops. But, they were things we needed. I didn't have matching/nice outfits or shorts for baby coming in spring/summer. So I got a few 0-3 mo outfits with thin stretch pants, and some 3-6 summer/shorts outfits. (DS1 was winter baby, so everything except for onesies in 3-6 is completely innappropriate for spring/summer baby!)

My splurge will be a changing table and new baby swing. I don't have either, but am saving up for them. My moderate splurge would be Aden and Anais burp cloths/bibs. I want them but can't justify full price. :( I hope to find some soon though.

I love Once Upon a Child and they have a huge clearance sale this weekend.

The Chicco Keyfit is an awesome seat. We have one which was my 2 yr olds seat, and I got the stroller at Once Upon a Child for a great price plus used a filled up punch card for another 15% off. Lol. So new carseat but used stroller. :)

I haven't checked into it yet, but my mother said that Joann (the craft store) has muslin REALLY cheap. She was actually shocked that people use it for swaddling. If it's decent quality, I will definitely be making my own!!

As for splurges, yikes - everything is a splurge right now, so we haven't bought anything. I'm hoping after tax and bonus season that we can catch up a little. If I could, I'd buy an actual co-sleeper (we have a queen bed, so DH, me, DS, and the newbie won't work! We're going to use the pack & play for now). I also want another Beco carrier - mine isn't made for an infant.

Checked out their website... Less than $3 for unbleached, less than $2 for bleached muslin. I'm making my own!! Curious as to how to finish the edges, I would think zip zag would look messy. This may work as a good fabric for hankies too :goodvibes:

Oh man, I would love a Baby Jogger City Select double stroller :drif: but at $650 that is NEVER going to happen. I'll probably wait until fall and see if I need a double stroller then and then get something off of Craigslist (I'll be able to wear her comfortably until then). I did splurge and get a Rock N Play, hoping that she likes it. Really hoping we get a swing for a baby present. I borrowed last time and that girl is now pregnant as well, so no borrowing again this time.
