Hello, I'm 24 weeks pregnant and my husband and I have started picking out what we need to get. After lots of research I've settled on the following big would welcome any positive advice/negative experiences just to make sure we are buying the right things for us. They're expensive items so id like to feel confident we are making the right decision
Mamas & Papas Armadillo Flip XT pushchair
Medela swing double electric breast pump
BT 7500 baby monitor
I'm not really looking for alternatives to these just if anyone had experience with them.

Hi SKelly! I'm exactly where you are now trying to decide on items!
im not sure about the pushchair or baby monitor , but I'm interested to hear what others have to say, I've decided on the bugaboo camelean3 pushchair.
I was looking at the same breast pump but have decided to wait until after baby is born to make sure the breast feeding definately works before I splash out on one. I'm determined to try to breast feed but after reading so much about it and how hard and exhausting it can be ive decided to wait & buy it when I know I can 100% do it. Just an idea. X

Thanks Ely, I posted this on a group chat on Facebook too and the advice there was about waiting for baby's arrival to buy the pump too. I'm 100% convinced on the benefits of breast milk, we went to a breastfeeding and hypnobirthing workshop which was amazing. Thanks for replying! It so exciting!!

I've just been to a baby & me talk in mothercare & she said that you don't express for after 2 weeks after baby arrives. If you can rent one that's great as they are very price! I'm in Ireland & they cost €200!
ive been looking to buy one 2nd hand & there's loads on the web so I'll definately consider that if it all works out! 😄
