    Dummies.... didn't think I'd need them but apparently I did :roll: DH has been trained to sterile and bring the dummies in when I gi into labour...:)

    Formula... I was told you can easily feed your baby by breast, but after Tia was born there was no help and I didn?t realise that with big hungry babies sometimes they need some extra food while your milk comes in, in the first few days.... I didn't even know how to make up a bottle :shock: I've got a small tub here incase but if I don't use it... I'll just chuck it... it only cost a few euros...

    Bigger sized vests and baby gro's!
    My baby is 6 weeks old and he has outgrown everything, as we only bought newborn and 0-3 we thought they would last NOT!
    So get plenty of bigger sizes!
    And Nappies if you see a bargain or money off!

    P.s Don't forget disposable knickers for during and after the birth!
    I found them handy when my waters broke, otherwise I would of leaked everywhere lol :rotfl:
