why when i am trying to be good....

Postby Shevi » Tue Apr 28, 2009 5:39 pm

...do you all fill the 'sale' boards with teeny tiny nappies and wraps and other useful (and much wanted) stuff!!!???

1. i am supersticious, so generally either dont buy for baby before birth, or if i do (cos brain would send me crazy otherwise about all the disorganisedness!!) it is only the basic necessaties, and i store them at my mums...

2. i dont know if its a girl or boy (but superstition would stop me telling anyone once i do know!!!) so it would be a shame to buy white if later i could choose colours!!!

but in the last week we have had pretty much my whole shopping list posted on here!!! so i am really struggling!!!

i will have to find someones wifi to tap into in hospital, and then when the sprog (please g-d) has that first Looong sleep, i will rush online and buy EVERYTHING!!!!!! i should really start storing the paypal.

Could someone (e.g. SIL etc) buy them for you and store them?

Hard :x See I had everything ready for Ben from early on. But yes perhaps ask people to buy them for you :wink:

It's a hard one. I bought everything really early on. And am toying with the idea of nb nappies and I'm not even pregnant yet :roll: But I agree with the others, could someone else get the things for you?

I'm like you, superstitious, & buy very little before the birth. My 1st baby had a few sleepsuits & a moses basket & that was it. I guess your options are for someone else to keep them for you or hope that people are selling the same kind of things in 6 months time. It's just so typical though especially when you know what you are looking for.

Getting someone else to store them for you is a good idea. I bought hardly anything for Gracie (unserdsandbly) but we did know what flavour she was so very late on I bought all her lovely Jasper Conran bedding - well it was in the sale and the whole lot cost me £46 when just the coverlette was originally £50 - ooh I love a bargain :giggle:

oooh good bargain!!!

i figured that my mum has the cradle (she used it for all of us!!) and she will replace the matress as soon as sprog is born. car seat i will borrow (mine is no longer safe) till i get online and buy car seat and buggy (my current pram has also not survived the amount of air travel i do :() but i should eb able to get 48 deliivery on most things.
clothes...i ahve all my boys things in the loft, and my sil's have girl thinsg too...and i will buy 1 pack of new for in my bag ;)
and basically bar nappies that is it!!!
i suppose realistically i'll be using sposies for a bit anyway, so its another case of order online from places that can deliver in 48 hours.

but such great bargains on here now!!!!
