Hi, I've got a Â£10 off voucher when I spend over Â£30 at mamas and papas. It expires in a few weeks and I still won't know the sex of my baby by that point (currently 16 weeks). Therefore in just wondering what I could buy that I'll need to buy at some point anyway that aren't gender related?? Any ideas? Seems a shane to let the voucher go to waste! Nothing big like a pram etc yet! Thanks!
Plain white vests/ sleepsuits Muslins Cot sheets/cellular blankets/ lovely bedding Baby bath or seat thing Changing mats (I'm told I'll need 2) Bouncy chair? A couple of bottles (just in case or for expressing) Dummies (maybe) Books Cuddly toy!
I've got a M&P voucher too... and £5 off at Mothercare... and £15 at vertbaudet...! I'm sort of wishing I'd found out the sex!
- some plain white babygros/ vest - muslin clothes - little cardigan - baby hats/ mittens - baby bouncer - sling ( if they sell decent ones)
My advice is write a long list of everything you think you need, then go through and cross out what you prob don't need and waste of money/ space Ie Baby bath - do you have a kitchen sink/ bathroom sink? Plus a shower or bath for yourselves? Prob fine. Bath thermometer- really? I'm sure you have managed all your life to run a bath/ test water temp with hand/ elbow. Do same with baby Baby shoes - can they walk? Nope. Babies feet have virtually no muscle so hard to bend to for in shoes. Save money for a year later when they actually need ( saves sanity also)
