I think I need to stop.

See, I wasn't really intending to buy ANYTHING until about September. The baby's due at the end of December, so there's masses of time. But then I thought I could just get some terry squares, to practice folding. And of course I had to buy them from somewhere, so I started checking out the sites that sold them. And I saw a recommendation somewhere for this place, which of course led to more checking out of various sites (and the classifieds, ahem). And I found two big sales going on, so now I have:

12 white terry squares
8 pre-loved prefolds (4 large, 4 small)
6 coloured terry squares
20 (I think) assorted premade nappies, including 5 teenyfits, 4 easyfits, 4 sandys, 2 swaddlebees, 2 teddys, 2 imse vimses and a thirsty.
12 muslin squares
10 fleece liners
4 PUL wraps
3 nippas
2 mesh bags
1 wet bag...
and some bamboo boosters on order.

I guess at some point I'll acquire a bucket, changing bag and mat, and sort out some wipes and a few more liners, but I think that should do for now, right? I've 'only' spent about £225 so far. :lol: I have tried explaining to OH that this is doing well, but I'm not sure he's convinced yet :oops:

:giggle: The tree is a lovely place to be :cnthug: BUT not good on the pennies :twisted:

I too intended on only buying 'enough' nappies I need this time round (went way over with the others) but that hasn't been the case! Even just now I got excited when I saw some nappies I like in classifieds, I have 50 newborn/size 1's already & thats not counting the 20 odd onesize nappies I have! :loopy:

It's addictive! But you can resell at the end, so really, makes no difference!


This is what I've been telling myself anyway!

Oh, and just as PROOF of what nice people post here, every single one of the people whom I've bought things from in classifieds has spelt my name correctly - never known anything like it since I worked in publishing (I have a very easily mis-spelled name).

If anyone wants to comment on what I've bought, or suggest other options that would be good to try, please do say.
