    TBH at least 10 of each and in the first weeks they may go through an outfit at every feed between sicking up and nappy leaks/wee'ing on their clothes :lol:

    I'd buy a couple of 7 pack body suit vests and at least 3-4 sleepsuit sets of 3 and prepare to have the washing machine on flat out :D But if you buy many more it's a waste as well because they won't get more than a month or two's wear in them at this age due to fast growth :)

    :lol: It's a really clever little device :D

    Newborns tend to be snuffly and congested and obviously they can't Bblow their noses so this little device gently sucks anything out.

    This is a nasal asperator for the babies nose..one end to babies nose you suck the other..
    http://www.boots.com/en/4little1-Ba...---_-4little1 Baby Nose Clear Nasal Aspirator

    We had this one but without the ear bit???? TBH I found it useless.



    Nasosal drop's worked everytime!

    Muslin cloths can laid under babies head to protect the pram/moses/cot from sick/sweat = less changing of sheets and washing pram, quick and easy to change too especially when out and about!
