    Manda i know exactly what you mean every shop i go in if it has a baby section i have to look but ive been very good and not brought much mainly because the nursery is being done and i have no where to put it but thats nearly finished now so i will have a whole wardrobe to fill :D

    I have a fair bit 2nd hand too which is great as it keeps the costs down but i found then when i did start to buy things it made it seem more real to me and my oh i havent brought loads and most has been in the sales so havent paid huge amounts of money for it.

    Im sure if you buy a few items your oh wont mind or do what i do and just come home with it. I thought he would go mad when i brought a some pink clothes in the next sale as its no good if the scan was wrong and we pop a boy but he didnt mind and wanted to look at it all.

    I was in asda yesterday and the baby promotion had already started. They've got some good bargains, I got a Johnssons baby box of toiletries for £10.

    They also had the Lindam night and day feeding system for £15, Advent newborn starter set (of feeding bottles) for £10 and tommy tippee nappy wrapper £10.

    OH refused to buy anything apart from the baby box saying people will buy us stuff. We can't wait for the baby to be born then sit around hoping someone will buy a moses basket, or some bedding! :wall: :wall:

    The next bounty pack is given to you in hospital. You get too I think. One for the delivery suite, one for the ward. They were very good when I had James. Got some full size packs of wipes and baby wash.

    if you're having a homebirth midwife might be able to get them to you. Otherwise contact bounty direct and see if they'll send them :D

    Becky..the george vouchers where in the bounty packs collected from asda. If you got yours from boots it probably hasn't got the george voucher in it
