    I'm no help here but you can't beat the next sale for all of the above (bar the baby bath). You could get Quinny Buzz in the last sale for half price (£145)

    do we know when the next "next" sale is

    I think it's gonna be difficult to post 'all baby offers' in one thread, as it would end up massive ! You're just going to have to use the search filter to hunt for what you want, and keep an eye on the main hot deals page, I think.

    But, if it helps, have a trawl through Argos and Boots websites - both have some good reductions on baby things at the moment.
    And don't forget Sainsburys have 50% off all toys until Wednesday - a really good deal IMO.

    To take just one of your items, there are so many different cot mobiles of such huge difference in price that it'd be difficult to spot 'the best' hot deal. You can get a cheapy one from IKEA for less than £5
    ikea.com/gb/…225
    Or mamas and papas themed mobiles for £28 ... in which case the 10% off voucher would be a 'hot deal' for you.
    mamasandpapas.co.uk/pro…-i/

    If you have an Ikea nearby they sell excellent quality but very reasonable baby baths, mobiles, nursery furniture etc

    Sainsburys half price toy sale includes loads of lovely mobiles and rattles etc

    Also a fab book to buy for the 'Parents to be' is called....

    How to have a Baby and Still Live in the Real World - by Jane Symons!
    You can pick these books up off Ebay for a few quid - essential reading for parents to be!!

    I think that if you're trying to sell anything on this forum the rules say that you should post on the FS board, and follow the advice there. That way both buyer and seller are better protected.

    Yes folks, you should not be carrying out any personal trades/sales here.

    let me know if you guys put stuff up on the FS forum.....
    I dont know what we are having yet, due Jan 22nd. Cant belive how much all this stuff costs

    You're telling me!
    My advice would be to write a list of everything that you need, and then look on eb*y for 'bnwt' or 'bnib', you might be able to pick up a lot of stuff. And trawl argos for offers, grab whatevers reduced and cross it off your list. Then, when people ask what they can buy - tell them the things that you haven't found reduced! Worked a treat for us ... I don't think I paid full price for anything!

    urgent stuff
    moses basket or similar whilst baby sleeps in your room - new mattress if using 2nd hand one
    sheets for moses basket
    blankets OR sleeping bags
    baby bath if you are going to use one (don't bother with top n tail thingy). We got this one and love it - a lot easier to use than the traditional 'bath' things
    bloomingmarvellous.co.uk/pro…-GB
    obviously clothes, but don't buy too many in size 'newborn', but lots of sleep suits and body suits (as its winter) in size 0-3 will be needed. don't buy any shoes, you honestly won't use them
    If you plan on using bottes, a cheapo steam steriliser. We got this one as our microwave is too small to fit the microwave sterilisers in! Works a treat:
    argos.co.uk/sta…htm
    And therefore you may need bottles. Dr Brown is what we use - they are meant to help prevent colic
    Buy at least one pack of formula beforehand, and some 'cartons' for 'middle of the night emergencies'
    If you are using formula, then a bottle warmer will save you trolling downstairs in the middle of the night:
    argos.co.uk/sta…htm
    Changing mat - these don't get reduced often so just grab one from IKEA etc
    Trust me - buy a dummy just in case... it's no good deciding at 3.30 in the morning that you can't stand the crying :giggle:
    Obviously a buggy of some sort
    A car seat if you drive - the maxicosi is best rated in crash tests
    A lot of babies like bouncy chairs or swings
    A playmat with arches that toys dangle off
    Muslins as the little blighters burp up milk and generally make a mess - buy more than you think you'll need
    Ditto for bibs
    A monitor/alarm.I LOVE this one as it reassures you that the baby is still breathing:
    argos.co.uk/sta…htm

    might want these:
    Consider whether you'll want a pump ... opinion varies a lot, but I found that a hand pump was OK, but the medela electric one worked faster (but made a racket!)
    You might want a breastfeeding pillow as some people find it easier. This is also useful for propping baby up on:
    argos.co.uk/web…low
    Digital thermometer for babies
    Infacol
    Calpol for 2months+
    Karvol

    Stuff For later:
    cot
    mobile (you won't need one whilst baby is in the moses basket)
    wardrobe (buy an adult one ... trust me!)
    high chair
    bumbo

    Got to dash, hope this helped

    Here's a baby gym reduced to £18.50 from £28
    argos.co.uk/sta…JUN


    And a mobile for £16.50 (was £25)
    argos.co.uk/sta…JUN

    If you have a Home Bargain or B&N store, check there for cellular blankets. I got a load from B&N at a fraction of the price they are in mothercare (£1.99 for small, £2.99 for huuuuge !)

    No one yet seems to have mentioned [url]www.kiddicare.com[/url] which usually have good prices . . . also well worth a trip if you live anywhere near Peterborough

    Washable nappies will save a fortune. There are some really cute ones including Happy Heinys One-size pocket nappies.

    thansk everyone and especially mellisa
    We are collecting stuff rapidy. Got a cotbed, moses basket, rocker, buggy
    If anyone finds any other bargains please put them up

    if you decide to go down the cloth nappy route give me a holler

    Baby sleeping bags are a total god send check your local TK max they usually have them for around £10

    actually had a quick think and tbh you don't 'need' half the stuff for a new born.

    what we used for AM up till he was about 3 months -

    Bottles
    bottle warmer
    steam steralizer
    sleep suits
    blankets
    Car seat
    pram (only cos we got given it though he was much much happier in his sling)
    baby moneter


    Baby gyms scared the daylights out of him.
    we used cloth nappies and some doubled as burp cloths etc
    We had a baby bath but TBH bending over killed me so he got bathed in the sink or in the bath with us. He hated it anyway lol
    we had a changing table too but never used that either till he was about 4 months old then the little blighter rolled off the darn thing!!! (bad mummy moment for me don't worry I'm still beating myself up over it and he's 3 now!!)

    Cheap babying...

    breast feed
    use cloth nappies
    ask on freecycle for clothes etc - most of the stuff is hardly worn


    things I wish I'd never had because I didn't use them or thought they were a waste...

    nappy sanitisier thingy that makes stinky sausages of disposable nappies
    steriliser
    moses basket (too noisy, every time baby moved it woke me up)
    travel cot
    cotton wool - its extortionate and you use so much of it - get nice soft cotton wipes and fluffy towels and reuse them

    thans jenny/Christine, excellent advice. I will pass onto my wife

    would you advise a car seat with a base, does it make it alot easier to take in and out?

    God yes. The maxi cosi comes with a base like this, and the car seat clicks straight onto some prams so you don't need to wake baby to go 'out and about'. I wouldn't have a car seat any other way .... saves a lot of backache !

    Thanks, will pick up the maxi cosi then, it seems to be the lightest.

    Another question, is it worth getting a baby monitor with a screen?

    I purchased all my stuff from this Independant in North West London called Just Kidding. Thet gave me 12.50% off everything!!! Purchased loads of stuff!! Had great deals on Bugaboo stuff. Website was [url]www.justkiddingonline.co.uk[/url] - use the voucher code 'MTICKLEDPINK' for 10% off.

    The last time i checked they had some good deals - Verve Pushchair (that a friend purchased at nearly half price) and half price Nostalgia stuff ( a few weeks ago now).

    Hope that helps.

    im selling a first wheels pram if interested.personally i bought a monitor with a mat that monitors babys breathing and i bought 1 with a camera once they were older so i could see when they were getting out of bed!

    I don't know anything about the maxi-cosi base but make sure it fits your car before you buy it! Check at places like mothercare and ToysRus.

    We have the AngelCare baby system which comes with a movement sensor. We've only used the sensor pads several times but great peace of mind when they get poorly.

    We also bought the universal steriliser from Argos because that's the one they had in our local hospital as we had to go back in as I wasn't producing enough milk - cost about £20 and is still going strong now. It fits 6 doctor Brown bottles. Microwave steriliser didn't fit in our microwave. In my opinion you DO need a steriliser - even if you are breastfeeding you will need the odd water bottle, etc.

    Definitely go for a bath rest - saves an aching arm and aching back and makes the baby and you feel more secure.

    Keep checking freecycle out. I gave away tons of great stuff, some unused, particularly clothing.

    i dont know if you have a clearance bargains(argos end of line etc store) bye you they where doing a fully reclining pushchairs,bouncer and travel cot for £50 which is great value.

    I agree with jen - no need for a camera on the monitor - IMO the sensor pad is more than enough. As long as the baby is breathing, you won't hear an alarm ... and if they start crying, you'll hear it. No need to see them as well.

    Fruity has had the same experiences as me - the steriliser I recommended fits 6 Dr Browns bottles, so is plenty big enough for most people (unless you have twins !!)

    thanks, We are thrifty too. My parents gave us 2k for the baby but I would rather put it into a baby account. Where are you located?
    We met someone who does baby stuff through oxfam. She turns over 40k for oxfam a year and we went and saw her and she had loads of stuff for us. Baby blankets, pushchair, clothes etc etc

    Some great ideas here :thumbsup: - especially about the NCT sales

    Hi all

    My location is Cumbria. Don't know about Oxfam up here

    I also go to a local car boot and they had a Quinny for £100 was gobsmacked it was like new. Brand new baby clothes Gap, Rocca and J Jnr real cheap

    Forgot to say Tesco had a mother and baby week 2 months ago and their Tommee Tippee's were half price. Worth keeping an eye out.

    Mothercare had the nappy wrapper for £14.99 half price if you want one

    The good thing about NCT sales is when you've finished with everything, you can go put them back in the sale, they take 25% commission. But it goes to a real good cause. Our local one they were queued round the block in the rain. They'll fight you for the bargains as well ha. Just offer to help out and sell then you get first shout at things:thumbsup:

    Thanks

    Just got back our first NCT class, was really good

    Is it really worth getting a nappy wrapper? Surely the smell comes through

    I will defintely try and go to the next NCT sale

    I love my nappy wrapper. They are only £15, and IMO well worth it. I can't smell anything once the nappy is tied up.

    But ... you do have to keep on buying cartridges for it, which can be quite costly if you're really trying to budget hard, as they are about £5 each ... but they do last quite a while (but compare to ~20p for a pack of 100 nappy sacks!).
