Baby Buying ChecklistChecklist for buying a baby
Frequently, new mum and dad find that boy and girl with their own kids are only too eager to give away baby clothing, while good-hearted people often give away baby clothing as gifts after giving birth. Often, they are not even willing to give it away. Even if that's not the case, there's no reason to spend a fortune on clothing they'll be wearing for just a few month, and you can find some great new items on eBay sites (which is also a great place to buy them when you're done) and even on group sites on Facebook.
Choosing the right plaything can make the distinction between a lucky chuckling little boy and a crying baby. As with clothing, most newborn babies are flooded with stuffed animals and mobile phones from their parents' boyfriends and family. Try to keep a low profile in the few weeks before the baby is born.
Even though you cannot prevent buying diapers, there are ways to keep costs down. For example, you could take the green path and choose diapers that you can clean and use. However, if that seems too much work, look for repeated sales and rebates on sites like Amazon and don't be scared to buy private label diapers at the grocery store that are just as good and often much less expensive than diapers.
A visit to a shop will help you get a better picture of the different stroller and seat dimensions and help you choose one that suits your needs. A stroller that converts from a stroller to a baby carriage is one way to prevent you from having to unpack a year later (just make sure you choose a stroller that collapses and has a detachable bed).
If you decide to buy a Jeep you should make sure that your Jeep has Isofix Jeep fixings and that the Jeep you want fits in it. A backward looking baby chair is the right option for infants up to 13 kg (although teenagers between 9 kg and 18 kg can also use forward looking baby seats).
Naturally, you may find that the boyfriend or family member who is so interested in loading all his clothing on you also has a stroller or automobile seats available. Instead of buying a Muses hamper that will last only three month, you are investing from the outset in a crèche that can last until your baby gets up.
