We are due in August and had almost nothing!!  I had a mild panic attack when KK had her baby and I realized this little bugger may come early.  We do have a carseat(I use it for my nephew.  Its a Britax that goes from 5lbs rear facing to 60lbs forward facing) that I bought when my sister had her 2nd baby.  DH said we have a bed, blankets and your boobs.  We are ok!  He did make me feel better. 🙂

But since than I did go out and buy 1/2 dozen cloth diapers.  Just having them makes me feel more prepared.  And I did kick our butts into gear into refinishing the hand me down glider.  It will be done, new cushions and new paint, this week!

I had a $25 credit for this site so I bought this Diaper and Wipe Dispenser. It was free shipping so I ended up paying only $15 for it.

Here’s the link for the baby & kids section of the site:

@mysticgrace:  ooh I like that! totally superflous, but totally useful and fun.

I have some gift cards that I havent spent yet. I think Ill wait to see what I dont get at the shower.

The only thing I bought so far was an old glider. I refinished it, but still need to pick fabric and reupholster it. I think Ill order/shop for fabric today or tomorrow. 

@bridalprincess:  regardint the baby on board sign. I always wanted to know the point of these. Whenever I see them I think “Oh OK, I wont get in an accident with you because you have a baby on board since I was planning on rearending you” 

@baletrina:  Your DH is cute.. and he does have a point! The basics are covered.

We’re due in October and both DH and I are type-A control freaks. In other words, we know what we like and we know that the best way to get exactly what you want is to get it yourself (vs. waiting for others at a shower). So we’ve tackled a ton of stuff on our list already and since we’ve been squirreling everything away, we’ve managed to get quite a bit on sale too (e.g. Amazon, Carter’s).

As far as recent purchases are concerned, the most notable ones would be:

– Mamaroo

– Stokke Tripp Trapp

– 4Mom Breeze Playard/Bassinet

And my parents are getting me the Bugaboo Cameleon 3 this coming weekend when they come into town.

@ThreeMeers:  I was told the baby on board sign was originally for emergency personnel, not necessarily other drivers. I think it was something along the effects that paramedics know to keep an eye out for babies if you get into an accident. That said, most people who buy it are probably assuming that other drivers will somehow be more attentive/safe around them.

So far I’ve received a used crib from a coworker and a crib bedding set from other coworkers.  I’ve bought the car seat, stroller, a rocker/glider, the pack n play, cloth diapers, a small amount of clothing, 2 bottles (I got an additional 2 for free), and a diaper bag.  I also got the hypnobabies course.  I think another set of coworkers will get me a sling, but if they don’t I will get it myself.  After that not sure I need much else.  Probably a pack of disposable diapers, wipes, diaper cream (though I have a few samples), a few more clothes, some swaddling blankets, and some burp clothes and/or bibs.  I think that’s about it.

@ThreeMeers:  LOL yeah, if it weren’t for the credit I already had, I wouldn’t have bought it! After my first baby, I realize how much stuff I didn’t actually need a few weeks in but this one, I think will still be pretty useful. 

@bridalprincess:  This one definitely looks like it holds a lot of diapers. I don’t have any right now though so I can’t tell how many for sure. It has great reviews on Amazon which was a pretty big factor in my decision to get it.

With my first child, I also got one of those Baby on Board signs and my friends teased saying they didn’t even know they still made those. I took it off after a few weeks since it really didn’t seem to hinder ones that are just set on tailgating you.
