Haley never used hers much. Tyler loves his though! He likes to sit in it and throw his toys on the ground and let mommy or sister pick them up

I just bought a swing for baby Norah for $40, it was used but they only used it for two months. You can take the chair off and use it as they grow.

I've purchased next to nothing...I've looked at strollers and bedding. I've also looked at swings.

I got a practically brand new bare naked boppy at a yard sale yesterday for....$1.00!!! Now I just need a cover for it and I'm set.

I also got an awesome Step 2 Climber with a slide that's normally over $100 for $5.00 for the little boy I babysit.

I hav'nt bought anything recently. I recently opened a 'baby plan' at a local baby gear store though. I can spread payments for larger items over a period of however long I want, so I have put down a deposit on some baby monitors. I still cant believe I am spending 110 on monitors, I must be nuts These are the ones I have chosen:




Also, I applied for a maternity grant when I hit 29 weeks, I can get 500 so I am just waiting for that to come through then I am going to buy all the stuff I need

We have a crib, a swing, some clothes, a cradle (that is a family cradle), a bouncer, and some toys and things. I need some bedding for the crib and want to get a pack and play soon. Oh I forgot! I need a carseat! I got a snap and go stroller frame for $15 bucks on Craigslist, so that's cool.

I haven't bought anything yet. To be honest, the only thing I need is a crib mattress, but I just can't bring myself to buy anything yet. I have my u/s in a little more than a week, and hopefully they will confirm the sex (they said girl at my n/t scan) so I can start buying clothes. I have a boy, and everyone I know has boys so I have a lot of shopping to do if it's a girl.

I just bought one of those vibrating bouncers. I didn't have one the first time around because Cori loved the swing, but I think the swing is too much motion for Ana, she spits up even worse. The bouncer is more upright and she likes being patted on the back so I think the vibration is similar. Its funny how each babe is so different.

So far I have a changing table, armoire and a voucher for $275 off of any crib I want at BRU. I bought my friends nursery furniture and her crib was recalled so they sent out the voucher! Not bad since I only spent $275 on the whole set!!

I ordered a custom made crib set from a friend that sews beautifully. It's made out of this fabric:



She is also making me a valance from it and a diaper bag.

A friend bought me this bouncer as an early baby shower gift:

Fisher-Price Papasan Cradle Bouncer - Pink Butterfly : Target

I've bought a few outfits for Cameron, I still need a ton more though.

Oh, the same friend that bought me the bouncer has a travel swing, another boppy, a shopping cart cover and a bumbo for me too!

Alicia I love that fabric! Its gorgeous! I love that bouncer too, thats the one that I am wanting to get.

Well today I bought something! I was'nt planning to though, I actually just went into the store to get Lily a drink and saw that they had some baby stuff on sale. I spotted the bottle warmer that goes with my sterilser and bottles and it was more than half price! Here is what I got:



It was reduced from 20 to just 9.78! (approx 32USD reduced to 16USD)

I love a great deal

I am so excited, my crib and dresser/changer should be delivered to my house today.
Hoping the DH and BIL put them together this week for me.

I still need to get a bouncer and swing and then I am pretty good to go.

I have one Patty. I tried it with the baby I watch, but it's hard over "the belly" to carry a baby that way. I don't know how other women do it. It really strains my back. But I can't wait till the belly is empty and baby is my arms to try it.

Red, I think it will be easier when She's in it. I bought a sling to try.
