Daddy Lloyd and I have started to turn some of our attention to the items that we will need once Mini Lloyd arrives. Now when I say we have started to turn our attention to this I don’t want to give the wrong idea, we are not that organised to have an already established list of what we need or what indeed we would like. Turning our attention quite simply means that we discuss some items and say things like “ooh yes we should look for that” and that’s as far as it goes.
But then this morning while trying to keep my mind off of B Lloyd’s first ever school trip I thought where better to have a growing list….on the blog! This way you lovely people could advise us on what is good or what is not worth it’s money. It’s been 6 years since B Lloyd first came along and we sold most of her bits and bobs (ie pram, bumbo, highchair, changing station, steriliser, bottles) when we moved back in 2009 so you can see our dilema!
To be honest we don’t even really know what’s still on the market…or what new things have hit the market!
I definitely would LOVE to try out the fabric slings that are now available (I have a certain hatred for the babybjorn carrier things, I always feel so sorry for a baby in one they look so damn uncomfortable!) Has anyone tried one or got any good tips for me on what to look out for? (I’m a sucker for pretty material!) I used to know the owner of Petit Poppet – well I still know Laura, she just isn’t the owner anymore!
Daddy Lloyd looked briefly at some prams the other day….Minefield! So we left that!
The bottles and steriliser are not that important as my aim is to breastfed again as I did (and loved) with B Lloyd, but she decided herself at 10 months of age that she had enough of being cuddled during milk time and just wanted to get on with exploring the world so I guess it’s nothing to worry about at the moment.
Are people still using Bumbo’s? What Pram is worth looking into? What else should we be adding to this list? Would love your thoughts and advice please 🙂
ebaby ebay the answer to our prayers and should we start watching things now so we can get in on great deals?
