What do I need for a new baby? List update p. 4

Postby clothmama » Tue Apr 22, 2014 8:34 am

I'm feeling a bit overwhelmed :panic: I've completely forgotten what I need for a baby - like how many singlets / onsies / outfits / bibs / blankets and things? I need to do a list then once I'm feeling a bit safer about the :pregnant: I can start buying things each payday.

So what do I need? :panic:

A lot less than you think!

I had no idea when I had James - and went by what different shops/magazines recommended. But in reality I needed a lot less.

I'll pop back in a bit with a more useful list!

6 basic onsies, but don't worry too much about outfits at first because you will probably be given loads! Muslins are a must, but unless you are using them as nappies you really don't need more than 4. You will need about 20 nappies. A baby carrier/sling of some sort is a must too - let me know if you want any advice on choosing :wink:

Boobs, a lightweight sling for the summer, 7 weather appropriate vests / onsies and 20-30 nappies and wipes.

Sling definitely! Were getting through vests and baby gros, due to mega peeing baby and wprking put which nappies suit us. Id get lots of vests... 10 maybe and the same for baby gros if youre gonna have them in those instead of outfits for a while.
