Baby Checklist

We are now on 6 weeks countdown!! I say 6 weeks but that's only if little one arrives on time. To say I am not organised is an understatement! With everything going on, I haven't had much time to do much so have come up with a checklist to try help  me get organised.

What I Have:
  • Moses Basket 
  • Bouncer
  • Unisex Baby Clothes, blankets etc
  • Baby Bath
  • Baby Wipes 
All baby clothes and bedding for the moses basket needs a good wash but are in perfect condition. I need to make space in my chest of drawers for all of these as well as nappies and wipes

What I Need to Get/Do:
  • Travel System - I have one picked out but want to go test drive it. Last time I had one picked but when I went to look at it, I hated how easy it was to push and how awkward it was to fold away. On a side note, I can;t believe how expensive they have become. 
  • Bottles: Dr. Brown all the way. I used these with Jack and am convinced these are the reason we never had to go through colic. We did have one Tommee Tippee bottle and it was a nightmare. I'm just going with 240ml bottles as from experience the 120ml ones only do a short time. Dr Brown are a bit more expensive but I feel they are worth the extra euros. 
  • Steriliser: Another thing that has gotten more expensive, then again I was ruined by a universal one that was just €20. The Dr.Brown steriliser is €66 in Boots, something I just can't justify so I went researching and the Avent 2 in 1 steriliser will fit 4 Dr. Browns. Not as great as fitting six but it will be fine. My baby bro is insisting he gets this for us so I am hunting for it on sale.
  • Play Mat for Tummy Time. Not very urgent but I'd like to have one here. 
  • Nappies
  • I need to start my hospital bag! Last time I brought far too much stuff with me so will be thinking more sensibly this time. I'll do a post on my hospital bag onceI have it sorted. 
A very kind cousin and his girlfriend gave us a generous One4All Voucher for Christmas so I'll be using that on the bottles and replacement teats.

I'll do a pregnancy update after I have had my scan on the 12th
