Grr to the doctor, wonder what his problem is?
Cat- I didn't get newborn shots with D and I sooo wish I did. I don't know if I'll get them this time, feels kinda mean doing it for the second not the first.
I hadn't realised, that is wonderful that there are no angel babies, and congrats on the movements!
Have a lovely trip to Tasmania.
I like Huggies the best, I've also tried Baby Love which I didn't like and the Woolies Select brand which are ok but not a good as the Huggies. I've heard the Aldi ones are a good cheaper option but haven't tried them myself.
With prams before buying it's important to ask yourself what you want from the pram. If you plan on walking or exercising alot with baby in the pram the bike style wheels are good for example. Make a list of five important things you want the pram to do and make sure the ones you're looking at fit the description. We have a Safe n Sound, no complaints there.
With the Bassinett, we bought one but not one that matched our nusery furniture, it was a relatively inexpensive one on lockable wheels that you could wheel around the house. I loved it as if I was doing something and DS was sleeping when he was very little I could keep an eye on him. Honestly I wouldn't spend a lot of money on one as DS outgrew his by 10 weeks, but ours was small and I really enjoyed the time from when he came from the hospital to when he moved into the cot sleeping next to me.
Ran- My son was 4.46 kg at birth so he went straight into 000s at birth. From there he went up a size in the first year every three months. So at three months he went into 00 and at six months 0, and then about 9 months started into some 1's.
Cheekymonkey- I know how great are the nappy prices, Woolies took their Huggies down from $42 a box to $33. Have been meaning to go there and get a box of infant size, I've got a whole box of newborn leftover from when I had Dan.
As for us not a lot happening, have been feeling light movements for about two weeks now. I feel a bit bad that almost all of the baby's stuff will be hand-me-downs so I've bought him/her a few small things. A toy, a comforter, some dummies, new singlets, socks and a few gender neutral outfits. It's so hard finding anything neutral, combined with the fact we have a lot shopping is so much more boring this time round.
I will need a new nappy bag and want to get a good one this time round so we have that to get. We are pretty much decided we will need a twin pram as DS can't be trusted to walk yet and likely not to before the baby comes, so looking into that as well. For ladies here that need a twin pram what are you looking a getting?
Things that I will rave about that Daniel had: his Mountain Buggy Pram was fantastic for going for walks, a Fisher Price jungle playmat that we have still got used everyday for the first 6 months, the Angelcare Sound and Movement monitor still
gives me peace everynight going to sleep knowing that D is ok, buying dummies on hand even if you don't think you'll use them (like me
was a godsend, buying bottles in case you have a difficult start to breastfeeding and need formula or to express was a necessity for me, as well as the accessories you need to use them (steriliser unit, bottle brush etc). That's all I can think of in the early days, except that we used a bassinett for the first 10 weeks and I loved that too.
