Re: What would you bring from the states to Germany in preparation for a new baby?
Chiming in to say that even though you have the infant car seat taken care of I would definitely buy the next one there. Extended rear facing is still a rarity in Germany (or Austria where I live) and if you plan to you're much better off buying it in the US. I imported a Britax Marathon for our son and it's been passed onto our daughter (who is still rear facing at almost 4 years old). Sadly the seat expires next April so we'll have to get a new one for our next baby.
And AFA no spill sippies go the Avent ones don't spill or leak at all so that's what we're using.
What I do buy in the US are zippered sleepers. I just don't have the patience to button snaps on sleepers at 3am and zippered sleepers are hard to come by here.
