@cbee:  I’m due in June and I plan on splurging on an organic mattress as well.  One thing I can’t see myself doing is spending $600 + on a stroller, let alone $1,000 plus.  And I live in a city where I mostly walk/take the subway.  But I know a smooth ride is really important to some people, and I get that as well!  I’m also planning on cloth diapering which I guess will be a splurge in the beginning, but not really, because you save money in the end!

@cbeeThat’s our splurge too. We also got an electric bottle sterilizer because we’re using glass bottles and they shouldn’t be microwaved.

Our biggest spurges were Cot, pram, and car seat. Relatives spurged though. πŸ™‚

One of my friends recommended that we splurge on the breast pump because she said you spend SO much time using it…but I’m torn because a handful of my friends have also had trouble breastfeeding and ended up not being able to, so I feel like then it’s a huge waste of money.  I see both sides of that one so I don’t know what to do….ugh!

I tried to save on the stroller for my first, and regretted every single time I used the darn thing, so I plan to buy a good double stroller now since I have a few years of usage in front of me.

I splurged on a good carrier since the cheaper one was killing my back. Best decision ever.

We bought good car seats but waited for sales so it wasn’t a splurge.

The rest was either used, on sale, or gifts.

@cbee:  Now if someone wanted to Give me a Stokke or Bugaboo I would take it!  But my good friend in the city has a one year old, and she said she never uses her more expensive stroller and always uses her uppababy G-luxe ($200)  So I plan on baby carrying/borrowing a snap and go until my baby is 3 months old and can use the G-luxe!

i splurged on bottles (comotomo) and on the stroller and car seat (britax b ready) and the babys mattress… it was at the higher end price wise at $180. i figure those are things i am going to use everyday so why not! πŸ™‚

Were going to spurlge on a new camera, the crib and mattress were given to us they are 2 years old and were hardly used. The stroller and carseat will be a gift from my inlaws, my dad is making us the craddle. I may spurlge on a breast pump, but my friend might give me hers if she is done by the time I need it.
