What i bought:
A Cot that has a drawer underneath. Usual Price $649.00. We Paid $349!
A Matress for the cot. $149
A Matress Protector. Usual Price $29. We Paid $24.65!
A 'Steelcraft' Stroller. Price $169. We Paid $134!
I just wanted a simple, small stroller that would easily fit in my car boot and in shops without any hassle and I really liked this one as the baby capsule (below) clicks right into it too!!
A Safe'n'sound Unity Carrier Carseat. Price $299. We Paid $249!
Although this means we will have to buy another carseat once the baby is over 12kg, I really wanted one of these as we live on the 2nd floor of our apartment and I thought it would be great for transporting a newborn from the car, up so many stairs without potentially waking it up. Plus I like that it clicks into the stroller!!! :)
A Travel Cot. Price $109. We paid $ 79! (bargan!!!)
A Chest of Drawers that also has the change table part on top. Price$ 649. We Paid $499!
A Change Pad. $28.90
A Bouncer (that vibrates and plays music!) It will actually be from my brother, but it was 1/2 price so we thought he'd probably apreciate it if we bought it then!! :) Price $99. We Paid $49!
A Set of Cot Sheets. Price $49.95. We Paid $42.46!
A Cot Blanket. Price $25. We Paid $20.40!
A Pretty Cot Blanket. Price $69.95. We Paid $59.46!
(we just bought one kind of set of sheets as we dont know if its a boy or girl yet so we bought some neutral tones so the cot is all ready when the baby gets home!)
All up, we saved $641.93!!! So i think it was definately worth it!! I have to add that my parents paid for it all!!!! We are so grateful and SPOILET!!!! Thanks so much Mum and Dad!!!
I will go and buy all the other little bits and pieces before the little one comes!! I cant wait!!!! Still 4 months to go!!!
Sorry if this post had a lot of 'facts and figures' I just really wanted to jot it all down for my own records too!!!
Mum and I spent about 4 hours in that shop! (we did leave the shop and have lunch too!) I did research before we got there so I had a fair idea of what I wanted! I knew I wanted that stroller, but I hadnt seen it in 'real life' yet, but when I did I was happy! Also the cot, i knew i wanted a drawer underneath.. so I researched those and Im happy with the one we found!
Matty is happy with everything that we recieved!! He wants to build the cot up now, but im not sure as I dont want it to get dirty or dusty before the baby comes!
This is me with only some of the goodies we bought on the day!! As you can see.. I was exhausted afterwards!!! haha!
