that is such a good idea about the pampers mats on the mattress!!! i put two sheets on just now to protect the mattress cos lewis always possets loads of milk onto his so i wash them every day.i don't like the waterproof sheets cos i remember having one as a kid and it woke me up every time i moved cos it crinkled!!! Laughing i have a packet of the pampers things in his cupboard so will use them tomorrow! thanks emmaloo!

also anything that plays music is a godsend for us, braden loves music and calms down so easy with it...

Another waste of money for us has been snowsuits, we had 3 in 0-3, and i used one once, even tho i thought it was cold enough he was still realllyyy sweaty when i got him out the pram, a hat coat and blankies is better!!

yeah the snowsuit was a waste for me too, we had 1 in newborn and it was massive on him for ages so put it away for a bit and then when i got it out thinking that it would fit it was too blinkin small, and also when i tried to put him in car seat in it his arms could easily slip back inside it and then he wasnt restrained properly. we have 1 in 3-6 months that my mum got him but once that has gone i wont be buying another.

Yeah, agree about snow suits, Luke had a new born one and 0-3, both a waste though, he didn't wear either of them, Ironically I'm looking for one now though, but one thats a two piece for when we walk Isabelle to school. At least then I can still use the jacket on its own.

i think they will be great for toddling babies in the snow!! but when they just lay wrapped up in buggies its way too hot!!!

Which reminds me, another lifesaver has been the Grobag egg!
Couldnt live without it, and a bath thermometer!

I'm with amy on the snowsuits - ours was nearly worn out last winter!! Mind you, if you use buggy and car primarily, maybe not so useful - we tended to use tummy carrier and soetimes buggy, never the car really - and his snowsuit was an everyday thing Very Happy

agree about grobag egg - Isaac loves to look at the glowy light as well Very Happy
