there was a lady on here selling lovely hand knit clothes for £1 each if you look through the old posts you should find it, although i dont know if shes anything left, if youre after bigger items try your local freecycle group, just google freecycle and you should find it. What things are you looking for?

Ive got some pale yellow cot blankets that are listed for, I was looking for £5 which doesn't leave me much after postage has been paid for, I also have some cot sheets in the same colour that I could include for free in the same packet as long as it doesn't go into the next price bracket for postage. If you are interested then I can get them out & see what I can get in weight wise.

I will have a look if there is anything else, sure I also have some Avent bottles as well if you wanted those,

I'll be able to rustle some stuff up, depending on size I will post for free.

Can you be more specific in what your after?

Odd question maybe, but instead of sending it to someone on here, why don't you send it to your friend? It's not really yours to give away

Hi,

Congratulations on your new baby!!! I know you said you wanted to try before you buy but Home Bargains is great for all sorts of baby things, they frequently have baby shampoo and bath that sells for £4 plus in Boots for 40p, baby bottles, tommee tippee, cups, teats, baby food and cereal for next to nothing. I used to buy Pampers and Johnsons wipes for my little boy but now I'm on my second baby with another due in three weeks and have never looked back after buying wipes from Home Bargains called Pudgies (I think), they come in a purple and white (sensitive) packet or yellow and purple (normal) and are 59p a packet. They are great, I've never had any irritation on my little ones and they are just as thick and moist as the Pamper, Huggies etc.

it may be called Branded Bargains too and they have a lot around the country, try here to find them:
http://www.tjmorris.co.uk/stores/

Also charity stores are great, my local ones do five baby grows, body suits and t shirts etc for around £1 and they are immaculate, I always give them a wash too. Look for freebies online, try bounty and get yourself over to Moneysavingexpert.com, there's loads of hints and tips on getting freebies there.

Please make sure you're getting all your entitlements too, like the Health in Pregnancy grant, Surestart grant if in receipt of certain benefits and my local Surestart centre has baby equipment that is reduced in price, for example I got two baby gates for £5 each last year that are selling in Asda for £15 each right now. Gumtree is a good one too, as well as Ebay as people often sell baby items in bundles or really cheaply just to get shut. Asking friends is really good as everyone has stuff sitting around unused.

The only thing I'd buy new is mattresses for the cot and moses basket because of the link with cot death. Also if you're not breastfeeding and you're not eligible for the Healthy Start vouchers try your gp or family health centre as they usually sell formula cheaper than the shops. Also if you are thinking of using a Tens machine for the birth try hiring one from the hospital or local Surestart centre, it is between £5 and £10 and I got my money back afterwards too. Much cheaper than buying.

I hope this helps and if I think of anything else I'll pop back on. Good luck
