What are the things you are looking forward to getting out for the new baby that have been tucked away from the last one, or have been bought in preparation? I can't wait to get our Amby Baby Hammock out again, it's so sweet. And I get to use all the different nappies I bought to try, right before Charlotte was using the toilet. And all the beautiful little outfits my mum knitted her.

I can't wait to pull out my Moby Wrap again. And to start buying cute little outfits! My first was a boy, and when we found out our second was going to be a girl, we gave pretty much all our baby boy clothes to my sister-in-law who was having her first. So I'm excited to get some new things!

This is my first baby, so we're doing it all from scratch! First baby thing I bought was a I ♥NY bib which I gave to my husband for Christmas, my way of telling him.

Spent the first trimester going on Amazon daily, making a wishlist and researching breastfeeding, BLW, cosleeping, babywearing, and ECing......we will end up trying to buy most of our stuff used but have the list as a backup...but going to go really minimalist and start out with combination of cloth/disposable nappies and white side-snap T-shirts, bibs, and swaddlesacks for sleeping. A couple little potties for ECing, and hopefully my boobies will be good for at least the first few months.

We went to the thrift store a couple weeks ago and in addition to some light sundresses that pull down in the front easily, I did happen to find a little Japanese-style vest and a little green dress with pink strawberries on it, that I could not resist at 2 dollars each! So now she has at least one "going out" outfit...

same here Michelle, I've saved all Charlotte's things, from birth through untiil now, just waiting to see if I can use it all again, or just some of it, and have to buy more boyish things. I don't mind either way. I love shopping!

oh that will look so cute Shauna. Little matching beds. I have Charlottes cot converted with side off on one side and the spare single bed on the other. She sleeps in the bed now, she's nearly 3, but did have a recent short stay back in the cot when she started wandering in the night. So it's good timing, as the cot will be well available by next July for the newbie.

I'm sort of looking forward to buying a second (convertible to toddler bed) crib and having one on each side of the room. (My son's 14 months, so I'm not ready for him to go to a regular bed yet, or even a toddler bed for that matter.)

I haven't pulled out anything yet but have saved everything from my son since he is only 10 months old right now. I am waiting until I know the sex before I start digging it all out again!
