Can you still get the coats with mittens attached to them? I cant seem to find one. Isabelle had one and the mittens were attached by buttons, I've lost two mittens in as many weeks (two different pairs and now I have 2 odd ones )

i nearly got the boots that matched that! but then i was rudely reminded braden aready has 5 pairs of boots and i put shoes as the biggest waste of money on my list lol
I dont know about buying the coats minimika but how about just attaching the mittens with wool and threading it through any jacket?

I'm selling my bebepod (like bumbo) on ebay, was really a waste. You can use bebepods from 3mths, so I used it a few times and then Luke was sitting unaided by 4 and half months so I didn't need it. I don't know if the seat helped him sit earlier than average or if he would have done it without it, but as for spending 30, far too much!

Aww Harry's is the same, he looks like a little teddy bear, Snow Suits have been life savers for us, we dont have a car so we walk everywhere.

Also i couldnt have lived without our baby bath...we only have a shower and Harry hates it, so at nearly 10 months old he is still using his, we cant use the kitchen sink as there is no double glazing or heating in there...and our land lord is too tight to sort it out.

Bouncy chair, a life saver when you need a few minutes to yourself.

Bibs, mountains of them.

Wast of money:

Newborn clothes-agree
I have tons of pacifiers/dummy's-he wouldn't take them
Expensive baby swing-he didn't like it
baby shoes
baby gowns (He was born in the summer and just wore onsies-the gowns kept riding up on him)
Most toiletries

Couldn't be without:
Bouncy/vibrating seat
Swaddling blanket
Musical mobile for his crib
Now he loves his jumper-it's a seat where his feat touch the ground and he can bounce and turn all the way around in it and play with all different toys that are hanging from it.
Floor activity mat
DVD "Musical baby"
Boppy

I live in a bungalow so it wasn't necessary for me to use one, but depending on what sort of push chair or pram you get you could use the pram part downstairs. I did this when i was at my mums as she had a proper pram where he could lay flat and they are a similar size to moses baskets.

Hope this helps. Personally my moses basket was a waste of money (my little boy weighed 8lbs 11ozs and was v long) Good Luck xx
