Didn't expect attached feelings to moses basket I gave away.

Okay I put my baby's moses basket set, stand plus blanket on ebay for 99p. I just wanted space. Time to buy little one a proper bed. Someone grabbed it quick and I didn't think much of it.

Only today as I was moving it out of the room to the sitting room for the couple did I feel a pang. I just felt funny like I didn't want to go ahead with it. It was totally unexpected.

It's just empty space now where it used to be. I know it's silly because baby's been sleeping with me anyway for a while. She's eight months now plus I can't just embalm it.

...but maybe I should have!

I couldn't help to think how foster parents must feel when their children are taken.

New couple said I should see it as a new chapter. I guess so.

Well heavily pregnant, they need it now more than I do now.

Really sucks sad

Will pass :-)

Know EXACTLY how you feel. I just gave away the travel system that's seen us through three children on two continents - can't stop feeling like I've abandoned an old faithful, it's tearing me up.

Hi. Lol. Thanks. Apparently happens to most people. I posted on another mum's site I'm on too. One mum even told me her husband was close to tears when they were giving away their basket!

It's a new chapter now. It will pass. Don't worry smile
