I've gotten a few things in the past month so I thought I'd go back to this thread.
http://www.justmommies.com/forums/f1...5898-need.html


What's left for you to get for baby since the last time a thread was posted about it close to a month ago?



What can you check off?

We still need all the necessities besides furniture. Our baby shower is on Saturday so hopefully, I'll be able to cross them off the list.

We have a pretty short list of things we *need* before baby comes: Thermometer, Bouncer, diapers, breast pump, bottles, and a trash can for a diaper pail. That's it!! I think we're doing pretty well, with 8 weeks to go!

We need a new wet bag and somewhere to put her clothes. And that's about it. We will buy more clothes as time goes on and I would like to tie dye some gerber prefolds with the kids for burp cloths.

We pretty much have everything, we still need a baby tub, mattress and I need to buy my diaper bag. the rest of the stuff I need to get is not a dyer necessity but I still have to get a glider, stroller and a rug for her nursery. Also have to pick up some wipes, more bibs and burp cloths. Other than that we're pretty much set. Wow that's still a lot haha!

I need more clothes, definitely. I still need a carseat, a swing, a bouncy seat and a stroller. But a carseat is the only must have on that list as of right now. I have a new mini pack and play, a carrier, all of my diaper are prepped and ready to go, I have a nursing wrap and.... I don't remember what else. I still have quite a bit of stuff to get.

I was just making this list. I still need:

crib (getting from my sister sometime soon)
wet bag and/or diaper pail
grooming and first aid type items (thermometer, etc.)
socks
bouncer and/or swing
baby tub

There are a few things, like the bouncer or swing, and a stroller, that I'd like to have but don't necessarily NEED before baby gets here. And I need to go through what few clothes I have left from my boys to see how many sleepers and gowns I need to pick up. We're waiting to buy too much clothing until Omega gets here, but I have picked up a few gender neutral sleepers.

We still need everything ... With the acception of the crib dresser and bedding, but most of the essentials are still needed, our shower isn't until may 19th , I'm getting kind of antsy that we are cutting it close because everyone keeps saying well if you keep buying stuff what are we supposed o get for your shower ... I'm honestly worried about not having everything

I hope you ladies still needing a lot are able to get it real soon so you can stop stressing.

I have:
* uncovered my infant car seat
* been given a boppy pillow
* been given a cart seat cover
* found a wipes solution recipe I will be trying


I really just need to make some wipes still and hope someone gets me some towels and washcloths. I also need a small lamp for nighttime changes.

So yea, I have nothing to complain about for sure on this account.

I feel bad about this, but we still haven't done ANY shopping for this baby. I haven't even gone through the box of baby clothes I have saved.

We still need pretty much everything. But I have my 2nd baby shower on the 27th & I'm hoping to be able to get a lot of what we need there. Whatever we need after that we will go buy! We're getting close to having the baby's room empty so we can paint and stuff and then we will have a place to put the things we get!

I need to make a list. I have plenty of blankets I hope. I have carseats, 2nd crib is on its way, dresser, carriers, bumbo ,changing pad, 1carseat base I need 1more, high chairs.
I need to find owl material for dust ruffles & valances, prep all diapers and put them away. Buy neutral shirts, crib mattresses, some kind of bassinets, movement monitors, nursing pillow. Oh and a minivan so i can fit all my kids in one vehicle. That's all I can think of now

We still need a carseat (we have a back-up in case he comes early but DH's parents are getting us a better one.)

I have all his cloth diapers prepped but I want one pack of disposable diapers and wipes for those first few bleary-eyed days at home.

It'd be nice to have a tub but I'm also fine with just bathing him in the sink or getting into the tub with him. I like to bathe with my babies, it's super relaxing. We need some gentler soap, too. DD just uses what we use now that she's bigger...just thought of that one.

I think that's it! We would be fine if I went into labor right now. The rest is just extra stuff.

We need everything. I have a breastpump and a portable bassinet/playpen. We are going to wait until after she is born and able to come home to decide what we'll need.

Let's see, my list hasn't changed a whole lot from the last time. MIL bought us the carseat but we still need:

Extra base
Co-sleeper/sheets
Clothes
New bottles/nipples for a little later
Breast milk storage bags
Replacement plastic parts for the Pump in Style
infant insert for the ergo
.......

I am sure there is more that since I have not really thought about it. I need to get on it - I have about 8 weeks left and one of those weekends is taken up hosting a baby shower...
