Putting A Shopping List Of Baby Bits Together!

Since I was pregnant with Oscar five years ago the world of baby and nursery products has changed dramatically! When I had Oscar I brought so many bits and pieces (most you don’t really need) and as we have now passed the twenty weeks stage I have been putting a list together of things we need to get as I am trying to be really organised especially being due around Christmas.


We have our nursery furniture that was from Mama’s and Papa’s and has lasted really well and Oscar is now in a cabin bed so I only need to get him a chest of draws then I can use the changing unit/draws for the baby. Some of the things I have come across have shocked me, like the Fisher Price bouncer with Ipad holder. I was pleased to read this had been discontinued! There are some products available that I really love the look of and can make life a little easier for you. The Tommee Tippee perfect prep machine looks fab and I have had friends that have used it and they absolutely rave about it. Also I will defiantly be getting a video baby monitor this time as these weren’t around five years ago and look really great.


Another major difference when browsing the baby clothes is there are so many cuter boys clothes available now. As we don’t know what we are having I have brought a few neutral bits. I am loving star patterns and also brought some adorable giraffe printed baby grows from Mothercare plus I like the idea of rainbow prints for our little rainbow baby. I won’t be buying to much as I did this last time then when Oscar was born had loads of neutral clothes still on hangers as family and friends brought him so many lovely boy outfits. I was surprised in Next they have a tiny range of unisex new baby clothes which made me think maybe lots of people find out the sex of their baby now? To be honest I would love to find out but Greg doesn’t want to so I will just have to wait for the surprise!


There are also so many great looking pushchair/travel systems available now from fun and quirky designs from Cosatto, really modern designs from Quinny and I am still drawn back to Bugaboo has I had one with Oscar and it was great. To many to choose from makes the decision even harder. I am going to wait until the Baby Show in October to have a thorough look at them all. We have a Stokke mini sleepi cot from before too which I found making going from a moses basket to a big cot much easier. I have brought new white bedding and bumpers already, let’s see how long I can keep them clean this time. 


I had a Silver Cross car seat with Oscar but don’t have it any more so have been looking at the Maxi-Cosi pebble and with my car now I can have an isofix base which makes getting the car seat in and out of the car so much easier, especially after a C-section. 


Decisions, decisions all very exciting though!
