    Have you not get any pregnancy books as they outline what you need.

    Things like a cot, celleuar sheets, baby towels, baby toe nail scissors, hair brush etc, car seat, clothing, changing mat, nappies, bottle sterlising equipment (if you decide forulma or express), high chair, moses basket, pushchair - to name but a few things

    Wow - good list. I don't need anything :( , except new bottles, and I bought them already. I will treat myself to new baby gro's and vests for hospital and a coming home outfit. But I can't really justify anything else.

    I haven't bought anything yet, my youngest is still quite young so a lot of her stuff will be re-used, if I can control my spending urges that is, I've made lists of things I want to buy lol.

    I have made lists and segrated it with timeframes on what I need to buy, so anal, lol But I am really frustrated at the moment as I can not spend anything on baby until July after my honeymoon as most of my income will go on stuff when we are away. But I love baby shopping is one of the best things about pregnancy along with baby interactions :)

    Healthy eating whilst breast feeding
    Just to add - muslins! We used them so much for the first 3-4 months and still use them now and Thomas is almost 7 months old. Keep a pile in the lounge and a few upstairs in the bedroom for night feeds.

    Most things you don't necessarily have to get for when the baby is home however you won't have a great deal of time once it is, so if there are things such as a breast pump etc. that you're planning on getting, do the research, work out where to get it from and make a list. Then once you know that you may need something, check where to get it from and go get it. I didn't buy a pump until I knew I would definitely need/use it, as the decent ones aren't cheap.

    Oops sorry since doing my dissertation I have stopped caring about my spelling, lol

    The wedding was great but I was nervous and exciting. But now super happy to be going away on my honeymoon tomorrow.
