Baby Shopping ListShopping list for babies
Buying towels and diapers in different shapes and sizes and perhaps buying some different makes of diapers is the best advice if you don't get along with some kind of ecoz, if folks buy you diapers etc. for gifts that they are about to expire and it gets pricey on everything else. I' m buying from Andda, Mesco, Maincare, Next, Mattalan.
Usually I just sit and watch until they have a baby show at one of the super markets and buy a little more cash and then store diapers, towels, milks etc.. Now is a great starting point - as we have your baby party, you can make great deals!
All you need is the basic at first sight and if you can you'll get a second helping hands or loan when it comes to toy etc. if the baby doesn't like something - mine hates his £100 rocking thing !!!!!!! I am 33 week with my first one and we are just done, we have done everything within the last monthly!
Don't spend your cash on extravagant baby clothes for the first 3 month or so... usually baby's are better off and more comfortably in baby growth and waistcoats. Neither did I buy any of the extravagant bedding kits, I just purchased a stretch bed linen for the bed and then swaddlers/chains/sleeping bags and fluffy litters.
Asda' s Little Angels rank is the best and least expensive diaper in my experience with my niece and what they have to say here, and they also have good things to say about Tesco and Aldi's own rank. Actually, more humans seem to use them than Pampers and Huggies, etc.
What where to buy clothing, again sells primary kits of 3 swimsuits on sales at mo for 3 pounds a set that is only one pound per swimsuit. Also Asda have some good kits like Tesco and Matalan, look in one near you or look now.
Do you have a pretty big familiy or group of boyfriends, guys asking you what you need for the baby? Well, if so, it might be a good idea to have a baby party. And I know that some folks loathe them and think they are kitschy/tacky "Americanized" for what they are, but they don't have to be strange and cheese with horrible plays.
My mother was making something to eat and my grandma was making a delicious pie, my boyfriends, my relatives, my aunts, etc. all came by for the lunchtime and gave me a present for the baby. You gave us these gifts instead of giving us a gift when she was actually birth, because what's the use of everyone giving you a batch of gifts after you've already purchased everything?
Mother had a list of things we needed and was telling them that they could move off the list and she would delete them or they could come up with something themselves. When my daughter was conceived, I recall that my pauper bro and his friend had hardly enough cash to buy meals and settle their accounts every single day, no matter what baby clothing.....
just managing to get what they needed, with the help of my mom and dad and her folks, but then, when my niece came into the world, came the folks with bouquets of bouquets, little baby clothes she hardly fitted in for 5 min or the completely bad time of year (e.g. summer clothes for a baby borns in November because folks had purchased them in summers when she was pregnant), and although they were beautiful and obviously very much valued.... presents that were actually needed before the baby got there would be presents that were actually needed before the baby got there...
Thanks a lot women and can not fancy how useful ur responses were, I will be following everything you said do not think that you can have too many pajamas ESP with the first baby, how diapers can be taken a little and miss with shit and pee everywhere. I am 28 week old and have not yet stopped shopping for babies!
Even if it does help, for clothing I bought: And every few weekly intervals you can begin to buy another box of pyjamas in 3-6 plus extra, and buy boxes of diapers when they're for sale, even if you're not drowning. Each time you go shopping, take a pocket computer (or your mobile phone!) and calculate how much you pay per diaper for the package.
Neonatal diapers should only be about £10 per diaper. So if you choose to want some things later, you can still go out and get them when the baby gets here. And I think folks are afraid and think they have to have everything before the baby arrives, but you only need the essential.
Anything else may come later, according to what works for you and your baby.
