Re: Items needed for new baby, anything you want to splurge on?

I'm due at the very end of march, sorry for the intrusion. we won't need a single thing If this baby is a boy. If it's a girl, a bunch of clothes. Possibly a new monitor and a toddler bed for my son to move into so the newborn can have the sidecarred crib.

My wish list would be some more muslin blankets (girly if we get lucky) and maybe a few more infant diapers. We already have an extra new convertible car seat and newish bucket seat and a jogging stroller so we're pretty much set with the big ticket items.

Re: Items needed for new baby, anything you want to splurge on?

Hopefully, this will be our first -- so we basically have nothing. I have a few (literally like 5) pieces of clothing I bought during pregnancy #1 (which, it having been a year, will actually be seasonally appropriate). I also have about 35 hand-me-down diapers (mostly one-size pockets, a few flips, prefolds, and goodmamas), and have been promised a friend's entire stash of cloth, which is something like 80 one size pockets - she had 2 kids close in age! She barely used them either because her washing machine broke and she started using disposables. So if nothing else, this bub will have plenty of places to poo.

SBISH!!!!!! I can't wait to start buying more. Itti bitty wool covers and maybe a few snapless minis and OBFs. My dd is 21 m and I already have a lot of diapers, so just some small ones and some small wool.

We don't do a crib and already have pretty much everything else. I think I might want to splurge on a Britax B-ready stroller with the extra seat because DD will be 2.5 and I think will still want to ride. Oh, and a Carseat. (not bucket).

Re: Items needed for new baby, anything you want to splurge on?

I don't need much. I have 2 boys and a girl already and still have pretty much everything. I will need a new car seat as I gave my daughter's seat to a mom who needed it. And we need a new highchair. Most of our equipment has been through three babies and is still great, but the highchair needs replacing. I still have clothes for either gender too although I will buy some new things too. My 'splurge' is going to be cloth diapers. This will be my first time cloth diapering from birth.

this is where I am....I am going to be going to the Just between friends sale to get me some maternity stuff next month. I have never been pregnant in the cold months so this will be all new to me. It doesn't really get that cold in San Diego, but CO is a whole another things. I need a coat...what do you do for that?
