    People have been so kind and generous.
    Getting a cot bed from a very old friend who I lost contact with for years but back in touch the last year or so.
    Bouncy chair from a childhood friend, and she offered cot bed and moses basket but had them already.
    Pregnancy pillow, Bottles and steriliser and bits and pieces from sil.
    Chest of drawers from a twitter friend
    Stair gates, high chair and clothes from another twitter friend
    A snow suit and maybe some other clothes from our neighbour who had never spoken to new until about a month ago, we've bonded over babies now!

    And my parents bought the pram, but that's more expected ;-)

    We're doing well!
    Xx

    I have had loads too. Cot for the in laws, moses basket and stand, monitor, clothes, bouncing chair and loads of toys (so many I won't need to buy any).

    Isn't it wonderful ? We have had lots of donations such as a cot bouncy chair baby bath and a few toys and cellular blankets and a few long term loans (breast pump and steriliser off a friend who currently doesn't have a man so no need of them any time soon but would like a sibling for hers one day) and gifts too off family I have to say I do wonder how we would have fared without such kind and generous people around us.so lucky aren't we? :)

    It's amazed me how people I'm not massively close to still thinking of us. Lovely. Babies bring out the best in people it seems!!
