May 4th - Dear Money Gods

Wednesday, May 4, 2011

To commemorate today's ultrasound (Houston we have sex confirmation), I've compiled a little shopping list for Baby #2. Due to storage issues and my love of purging/spending $ we ended up selling a ton of Saiger's baby gear once she grew out of it including her: crib, infant car seat, exersaucer, jolly jumper, day-to-day clothes, baby toys, bumbo chair (which she NEVER used), high chair, etc.

The list of things we did keep is quite small: vibrating chair, B.O.B. stroller, baby bath, all 3 carriers (Baby Bjorn, Ergo & Cuddle Wrap), special outfits that have sentimental value, books, blankets, my nursing cover and nursing pillow.

In compiling this Baby #2 wishlist it was hard to differentiate need vs. want - I'll let you be the judge and please tell me if I need to add or eliminate a list item.

Saige lived in her borrowed swing so it's a baby must-have this time round - hopefully the mamaroo is as awesome as it looks. A friend of mine just bought one for her neice/nephew-to-be so I'm going to wait for a full review before I gets me one. The word on the street is that London Drugs in Kelowna carries them and hopefully they'll have a silver or green one with my name on it.


B.O.B. compatible car seat & extra base

Graco SnugRide or Peg Perego Primo Viaggio SIP 30/30
  

 part # CS0701 for our 2009 single stroller 



I may have already purchased these in a gender neutral 4-pack.



I love everything about this highchair, but most of all... it's price!


Newborn Session with Milk & Honey Photography

Well worth the drive to Lisa's studio in Kamloops.

While my Bosom Baby Nursing Pillow is great for actual nursing, the Bobby is better for propping, sitting and tummy time.


Born Free Glass Bottles

Saige never consistently took a bottle so we only had 1 Adiri Natural Nurser on hand; if Baby #2 comes out more cooperative I think we'll opt for the Born Free bottles Becs used with Caleb-bear... thoughts?


Cloth Diapers

I'm not 100% sold on the idea of switching to cloth and if I do I'll likely still use disposables every now and again for convenience and caregivers. Trev's cousin recommends the all-in-one GroVia, but I'm definitely open to other suggestions... are there any other contenders I should be considering?


Crib Bedding

Since our master bedroom will also be the nursery, I'm looking for a modern crib set that works with our room's decor... isn't this Billie Collection from Olli & Lime perfection?!


Baby Clothes


I heart baby GAP - if only I could afford my above favourite outfits for the little bambino/babinette.


Double B.O.B.

Dare to dream ;)

Hopefully you enjoyed my virtual shopping spree while you patiently wait for the gender reveal in t-minus 9 days.

Sara, we cloth diapered with Stella and found the Flip diapers to be our favorite! AND Milk and Honey is certainly worth the drive!!

I didn't use cloth diapers with my oldest and am using them with my baby girl (now 1 year old - already!) and I TOTALLY love it and wish I did it before. The Grovia AIOs are great. But I think they come in 2nd to the Swaddlebees Simplex and the Blueberry Basix. They are so amazing. Super duper trim so no bubble butt, easy to use as they are all one piece - no stuffing, so good for hubbies too, and we have never had a leak :) Congratulations on number 2!!! :)

I am the cousin, and I stand by my Grovia choice, though I know there are alot of amazing diapers out there. Cooper is now reserving his poops for about 3 to 4 diapers a day so the mess is getting bigger and while the mess usually spreads to the shell (cover) it has not yet (he is almost 3 months old) leaked out of the cloth diaper. I cannot say the same for the occasional disposable I have used for convenience. In fact, not two days ago I had to change his entire outfit due to a leaky disposable diaper. That being said, maybe they are not so convenient after all... The cloth diapers are more like disposables, the only down side is you have to take the dirty diapers home. The bags that they have now-a-days for doing exactly that are great. The bag doesn't leak and I have not yet noticed that the bag allows the odor to escape. All in all, cloth is great - oh, and Grovia has a no-questions guarantee for one full year from the date of purchase. If anything goes wrong - stiches come out, elastic breaks, velcro comes apart, etc - they will send you a replacement with a self-addressed, paid envelope for you to return the defective part.

Ok, I have more to add. I was just at work and I spoke with a couple of ladies who tried cloth and they all agreed that whatever brand you choose (if you decide to go cloth) make sure the closures are velcro not snaps or hooks. The reason being that with the growth of the baby there will come times where you will be between sizes, so the diaper will either be too tight for a while or too loose. Beyone that you pick what you can live with. I wanted the inserts to be totally separate from the shells for replacement and washing/drying purposes. You use less shells than liners at least 2 to 1.
- Shelaine again ;o)
