    We are buying a crib from Target that is plain white that is $150 dollars and we already have an antique rustic looking armouir we are using and then the rocker we received as a gift from my brother!!  I find changing tables completely useless so we aren’t getting a shorter dresser for that.

    We are using a dresser we already have and we’re going to add a change pad to the top to act as change table as well as storage. We are buying a crib, and trying to stay under $600 for that but you can get a great crib for $250-$350. We splurged on a glider chair which wsa $800 but I anticipate spending much time rocking baby, and later reading stories before bed as baby grows but again, gliders can cost $150-$350.

    We got our glider from an independant baby store for specialty furniture but are planning to get our crib from babies r us. I did a TON of research (Canadian bee) and found that there are barely any options for us. The 2 biggest were babies r us and Sears. Besides that, independant stores that bring in baby gear can be a good option too.

    That’s the only furniture we are buying aside from maybe some shelves for books and such.

    I got mine on overstock.com- it was a dresser, changing table with pad, and a crib that adjusts to 4 heights, has a conversion kit for a toddler bed as well as a daybed.  It was under $400 including shipping.

    Not included are the mattress and the conversion kit to a double bed, so that will be extra.

    We are inhereting a crib and I am using a dresser we already have as a changing table.  I did purchase a chair for nursing, I got an amazing high quality used leather arm chair for $200.  I think the mattress we will get is $160.  The changing pad is $20-30.  So… $400 so far?

    Someone gave us a sidetable that I will put next to my chair for lamp, books, a drink etc.  We have to keep costs low so I searched for months on craigslist to find a great chair.  Other than that… we might build a bookshelf for baby.  I am painting (on canvas, I am a painter) art for the walls… I think I spent $30 on canvas.

    @mufflerlove:  I know 🙁 I wish we had the options that the american bees do! Maybe Target will have options when it opens here?

    We spent a bit more than we wanted, probably between $1500-2000. We bought a crib, dresser, hutch (for on top of the dresser), nightstand, and an upholstered rocker.

    My Darling Husband is a quality snob though. He didn’t like the inexpensive options as they felt too “cheap” to him, so I was pretty limited on choices. I would have gone the craigslist route more then likely, but he was pretty picky.

    @mufflerlove:  Be careful with shopping cross border, they can confiscate cribs and carseats at the border because they don’t meet canadian safety laws and you can’t do anything to get your money back. I would suggest not buying those things in the US!

    @MrsSawyer:  my Darling Husband used to work at target headquarters and we almost moved to canada for it! but we didnt, and instead a lot of our friends have moved there to get target started! they should definitely have baby things, but i dont know when theyre opening in relation to due dates and wanting to buy!
