After my shower in Hillsborough, I returned home with a good idea of what we still needed to buy to prepare for the baby. I had been excited for this for a long time – I couldn’t wait for the relief to have everything we need in our house! That day has come, and we are all set. Here are the final items I bought to complete the nursery!
Diapers and wipes – for the first few weeks/month until we transition into cloth. I have 6 packs of diapers and about 4 big packs of wipes. The good news is if I need more they are easily found. I think these will get us through the toughest time no problem.
Two wet bags for our diaper bag and the basement
A handy OXO wipes container that takes both disposable and then cloth when we are ready
It opens with one hand and has a weigh to make pulling wipes out easier. Also keeps them moist with a tight seal.
The aden & anais blankets I have been drooling over all summer! I mostly just wanted the bees for Buzz : )
A second Halo Newborn Sleep Sack – I wanted a few kinds to test out
3 SummerMe Swaddlers – I hear these are great!
Could not resist these on sale when I was at Babies R Us – they look so American Apparel!
Lanolin and a handful of fleece waterproof pads. I had a mom friend recommend these to me. I had never heard of them, but they are great to put down during diaper changes both on your pretty changing pad or on the floor/couch/wherever you are. Cheap too! Can be also used under crib sheets or as burp clothes. They have tons of sizes.
Butt paste and 2 kinds of pacifiers
A large wet bag that now hangs on the side of our changing dresser
Which is next to our monitor on this little yellow IKEA table. It never occurred to me that there would be CORDS running from the motion sensor on the Angelcare so I’d have to have the monitor close to the crib. Luckily this table has been floating around our house for months without a permanent position and it now has a purpose. Close by to turn both electronics off after a nap.
And here is dad-to-be securing the changing pad to the dresser and the dresser to the wall!
I’ll be doing a final nursery tour when we have the last 2 items in. I am waiting for 1 to arrive and 1 to be made!
