A nice new change bag?

I was going to say changing bag, but I didn't like mine so that's why I want a new one! erm....for me I've bought reusable breast pads because I hated disposable ones last time. Apart from that I don't know what else you would get for yourself - maybe just set money aside to buy some new clothes or something once baby is here?
I've got on my list still to get:
mattresses for pram (can be used for overnight sleep) and for crib
more boy clothes (which I'm buying as I sell M's old stuff!)
I think that's it, but it doesn't seem an awful lot!

The lists I write seem ridiculously short too weekender!
Ive got bits for my hospitsl bag to get, giant pants/primark pjs and other such glamerous items.i quite like the idea of a swinging crib but when we have a moses basket and a carrycot that can be slept in it see seems a bit unnecessary

I know what you mean, M hated the moses basket from birth and slept in pram carrycot, we moved her into her cot at 12 days old and she seemed happier. My mum bought a crib for my niece, so I'm borrowing that for this one.
big pants yup need to get them too
I need to find a full list of what's needed to make sure I'm organised but can't seem to find one

look on tuppence & crumble i want one of their starsuits and nap sacks no reason other than just because!
Ive treated myself to a new sling as well and loads of clothes

oh CK, I just looked at that website, I NEED a nap sack! They're lovely and look so cosy! Hmm, my sis asked what she could buy for baby, I'm thinking she could get one of those but I want a blue one and no one knows we know the flavour Their little star suits are lovely too

This is my first but there's been 2 things I've splurged on. One is the travel system, I went for a Stokke Xplory part of it is practical because I'm tall and it has adjustable handle bars, a great leg clearance when walking and a high seat once the babies older (I have a bad back), but the other part is I just loved the purple one . The other is the daybed/bouncer which is a Stokke Bounce n Sleep again because it's high and second is it weighs virtually nothing so I can move it without getting a hand from the OH.
Is there anything you really wanted with the 1st but couldn't justify splurging on?

CK I was going to say a star suit! We were given one as a gift and it is amazing, we use it a lot plus he looks so unbelievably cute in it! Everyone coos over him when they see him all snuggled up. It's a little treat purchase that is actually useful.

High on my list would be new seat liner for the pram, some lively big fancy muslins from John lewis, a drape foe over the crib or even a bedside sleeper! Morrck x2, personalised custom cover for my pram and car seat hood. I'd also like a woven wrap, another pretty connecta, and a stretchy wrap for early days. I'd also like a tongue tie specialist to comesee us asap after issues with E, and I'll put money aside for this before I TTC.

Some good ideas ladies!
16/01/2014 at 21:51
......wait until you get to number 4! The list is VERY short!
16/01/2014 at 22:09
I have bookmarked this page!
My list so far:
New pram (this is a want not must..but it's a must to me!)
Mattress for Moses
Monitors (ours were crap)

I probably will get a new change bag, I'd like but probably won't get a bugaboo donkey, and I'd really like but definitely won't be getting (yet) a new house with enough space in the front room to fit all of J's toys plus a baby gym and a jumparoo in - or even a dedicated play room, and (pipe dream) a full time nanny for extra hands if they're both screaming at once, or to look after both occasionally during the day so I can get a nap here and there!
