    Everythings Organised & Ready But Most Of The Baby Things Are In The Spare Room Waiting. I Was Wondering When To Set Up The Steriliser,Bottle Warmer etc In The Kitchen. Did You Wait Until Baby Was Home Or Do It Before? :think:

    My stuffs all in the kitchen... steriliser etc... I'll be waiting till the baby pops out though... no point taking it out the boxes and messing around with it yet.

    Mainly because it will get dusty and dirty before the baby is here.. DH has been instructed to bring up a sterilised dummy after the birth...but as they will only stay sterile for maximum of 24 hours... theres no point doing anything yet unless you have a crystal ball or are lucky enough to have an exact date for your c section... :rotfl: :rotfl:

    Although we had everything ready we weren't really prepared as such because Finn came 3 weeks early - we were really expecting him to be overdue!

    i would suggest at least knowing how to use steriliser and having it all handy by, i went into labour at 37 weeks and was rushed in spent a week in hospital and we were discharged at 8pm one evening, got home did not have a clue how to use and set up steriliser and had a hungry baby to feed, moses basket was in the spare room but the bedding wasn't put on so it all took time to sort out. i think we finally settled down about 2am that morning. i would strongly recommend you are ready early just in case!! :lol:

    yeh get everythin out hun and put it where you want it and figure out how work all the things like sterilisers, breast pumps, bottle warmers etc. you will feel really tired when you get bk with baby and havin everything sorted will be great and allow you time to relax etc.

    Thanks Ladies, Think I'll Get It All Sorted Tonight Then :) Its a Real Pain Because We'd Love To Just Decorate The Spare Room As Its The Nursery.. But My Family Dont Want To Know The Sex Of The Baby Until They Meet Her & The Spare Room Is Where They'll Be Sleeping So We Cant Touch It Until They've Left. Not Just Because It'll Be Pink, But Also Because Its Where All The Beds Are. Never Mind :) x
