We're so skint at the moment but baby number 2 is due in 2 and a half months. Trying to think of what I absolutely can't do without so we can get those bits first. We've still got old cot from DS, a jumperoo, quite a few clothes, blankets, Moses basket and pushchair.
Can anyone help me think of what else we really need, not just things that are nice? Even small stuff like muslin blankets, do I really need them?
It sounds to me like your well prepared - what about a car seat, pram and bottles?
We've bought a lot from NCT nearly new sales, and local nearly new baby sales. It's amazing what you can pick up and the savings you can make on items that you can happily wash knowing that they are clean and safe. Unfortunately the only things I wouldn't buy are the above items. Best of luck.
Sounds like you have most of the essentials already, assuming pushchair lies flat.
Car seat? Obviously nappies too.
And how are you planning on feeding the baby? If formula, you'll need bottles & sterilising equipment. You may be able to get away without buying anything in advance other than a few breastpads if you're planning on breastfeeding (assuming you've got suitable clothes for that).
I think most other things you could wait and see if you need them - i.e. muslin cloths are only really necessary if you have a baby that possets a lot. We've also used towels and T-shirts when we've not had muslin cloths to hand.
