We were given a perfectly good swing for Spencer and it still works great, in fact it was barely used. But I told DF I found a collection from Fisher Price called Zen that I absolutely LOVE and I really want to buy the bassinet and swing pieces. We didn't have a bassinet with Spencer but DF knew how bad I wanted one. So he's agreed to let me have those two items this time!! Has anyone seen this collection in stores? None of the Wal Mart, Target, or Babies R Us stores around here carry any of the pieces in this collection. I guess I'll have to order directly from Fisher Price. But I fell in love with the bassinet and swing the moment I saw them! What do you guys think??
Bassinet: It rocks side to side and plays "zen" calming music, nature sounds, etc
Swing: I love that you can wrap baby in the swing with the blanket! It swings back and forth and side to side. And it also detaches and turns into a bouncer!
ETA: Oh yeah! I forgot to add that we already have all the other big items for this baby! Everything but the clothes are unisex in color so if it's a boy, we're set on EVERYTHING including clothes. If it's a girl, I think just some girl clothes and that's it. We bought a convertible crib with Spencer thinking it would save money in the long run, but I think we've decided to let the new baby use the same crib and buy Spencer a toddler bed when the baby is born. Something with sides definately so he won't fall out. I'm too paranoid about that. LOL DF wants to get him a race car bed or something like that!

Well we had to buy everything ahead of time for the movers so we have everything except a bouner and a swing which dh is responsible for picking out. We also still need to get the bedding set which we will pick out after we know the gender.
Since Olivia is less than a year and half we still have everything of hers (luckily we got it all in gender neutral colors). The only big thing we will have to buy is a toddler bed for Olivia so this baby will be able to use her crib and clothes if it's a boy. We should have everything else.
Since this is our second we already have most of the big stuff. Our swing and bouncy seat are blue but even if this baby is a girl I'm not planning on buying new ones. The baby isn't going to care that they are blue!
We'll need a double stroller. I also want to get a Moby Wrap to wear the baby. Regardless of whether it's a girl or boy we'll need some new clothes. DS was born in June so his newborn stuff is summer clothes. I won't be able to use them on a baby in October.
I really like that set you posted but I've never seen it anywhere. It's really cool looking!
We will not be getting anything. We are set thankfully.
With bella we had gotten a new infant carseat, being the other was expired, and due to one of the older kids breaking the changing table (that was over 10 years old) we had to get a new changing table. AND right before we moved here this past summer the crib we had had for over 10 years broke too. THankfully we had some sweet friends that let us use theirs since they are having no more babies.
We have to get almost everything.. with our first they were already hand me downs and are in no shape or form to be used again. I know I am having a "baby sprinkle" so hopefully my inlaws will get us one "big" item!
being our first we need to get everything. DF has a good friend who has already offered to give us everything from their son that can be used again (he is 5 now, but they have kept everything from birth up)
I dont think I will start to buy anything until i know the gender, plus that give me time to start collecting some money!
The only thing I can think of is the double stroller. We have everything when Claudia was a baby, we won't get 2 of everything unless both babies will love the same thing like a swing. Probably a second crib but they will be sleeping together for a while (few months), so that is on our list as well.

This is our first - so we'll need everything and I haven't even figured out what 'everything' is yet! Luckily, our friends are giving us a crib and changing table that is only a few years old and it matches the nursery perfectly (we wanted white furniture b/c the walls are tiffany blue).
Other than that, I'm hoping that my baby showers will provide us with everything we need. I have lots of giving friends and family.
Looks like my biggest expense right now will be maternity clothes b/c no one is my size, so I can't borrow anything - have to buy it all new!
The only thing I can think of that we will *need* to buy is a new car seat/stroller if this is a boy. We needed a new one last time and we were thinking she would be our last. We have never really bought any major gear that has been gender specific so we splurged and bought pink. LOL!
