    We've had our hearts set on the I Love My Bear range from Toys R Us for weeks and weeks but we just aren't getting anywhere with it. They have been out of stock for ages and they're not sure when or how many cotbeds etc they will be getting in at any given time.

    As we only have 13 weeks to go from Monday, we were starting to panic as most places give a delivery waiting time of 6-8 weeks and we really want the nursery finished by the beginning of February.

    So.. we decided (reuctantly) to look around today at other nursery ranges. We went to Kiddicare and the first one we spotted was the Kidsmill "Susannah" range. It's really nice and Matt now prefers it to the ILMB range. I will eventually, I like it, don't get me wrong... but I'm very disappointed in not getting the ILMB stuff.

    Anyway, we bought the cotbed, wardrobe, large chest and toy/storage box. Here it is...

    It should be here in 6-8 weeks. They send it from Holland and actually deliver it and come and put it all together for you - bargain! :D

    Thats a beautiful range Debbie :D I'd like something like that for bubs :)

    It's dissapointing when you don't get what you've got your heart set on (I've got my heart set on the Mamas & Papas ultima but we probably won't be able to afford it) but I bet you'll love it when it's all up in the nicely decorated nursery :D

    That's lovely :D I really like the contrast between the paintwork and the wood. It finishes it beautifully and will work as your baby grows. I think its a really great choice, even though it was your second pick. I think once you actually see it all in place and the nursery finished you'll be more able to fall for it all, if that makes sense.

    I've barely thought about nursery furniture and hadn't really planned on getting anything matching tbh, but now I've seen that and checked out the Kiddicare site (thanks for the heads up about it) I'm half tempted to go get matching things.

    It seems to only be available in store. We live 5 mins from Kiddicare so we're lucky really to be able to visit :)

    This is a gorgeous set.

    We havent got around to thinking about this yet and doubt something that big would fit in the nursery but it is gorgeous.

    Well done on getting yourself sorted

    That's a beautiful set!

    I hadn't even thought about buying furniture, let alone matching! I'm not sure we can afford it really, my sister has a cot from her 2 kids and she's got good taste so we'll probably cadge that off of her and see what else we can get to match!

    Oh God, I would. If you really want it - just get it. When we started looking initially, it was in stick. If you look online now the whole range is out of stock. No cots, no wardrobes, no dressers.. nothing.....

    http://www.toysrus.co.uk/SearchResults. ... at=bruhome\brunursery\&dep=true

    The only thing we did get was the ILLMB crib - and that was by chance a couple of weeks ago. It's ok that it doesn't match as that will be in our room anyway. The stores don't stock the wardrobe either so they have to be ordered direct. I tried every store nearby in a 100 mile radius and all said the same thing.. out of stock and not sure when any more will be in. Milton Keynes, Nottingham, Cambridge, Norwich, Brent Cross etc etc..

    Soph, I say if you want it - get it asap so you're not disappointed like we have been.

    This stuff is quite similar to the ILMB stuff really in colour etc apart from the etching on the sides so it shouldn't have clashed. I'm sure I will love it just as much once it is here :D

    Thanks Debbie, my aunt is gonna buy the crib for me, not sure if I should ask her to do it sooner as she is gonna get it in the new year, we are doing the same as you and having it in our room, so if she can't get it then it doesn't really matter (BUT I WANT IT :lol: ) Might go down and get the cot this week!!!!
