When I was pregnant, I was sent a list of things to buy, from a very helpful friend. I then passed it onto lots of other friends, when they were pregnant. The list was huge (like, massive) and I really worried about missing something on the list, and being caught short without that one thing we needed.
“Argh! Why didn’t we buy a topping and tailing dish!” I imagined myself crying – despite not even knowing what a topping and tailing dish was. And if I’m honest, I’m still not sure what the point of them actually is…
If we have another child (I said IF… don’t you all start with those looks) I’ll be much more relaxed about what we need. I’ll remember the things that were genuinely useful (Bumbo, baby bouncer seat…) and the things that weren’t (cotton wool – I still have rolls and rolls of the stuff, unused in the bathroom cupboard).
Thanks to Argos, I’m giving away three things that are on my ‘genuinely useful’ list. One person will win a lovely wooden swinging crib worth £64.50, an Avent bottle starter kit worth £29.99 and an Avent electric steam steriliser worth £59.99. Woo! When my daughter was a newborn, she would only sleep when being pushed in the pram or rocked. This swinging crib would have been really handy (and the neutral wood is lovely). You can take a look at the cribs here. We used Avent bottles, so I can vouch for them and say how great they are. We had an Avent microwave steam steriliser but this electric version would have been even easier to use.
