I have all the expensive things for the baby leftover from Mélodie, but now have to get her transitioned So I can use them. I had the stupid notion that for some reason this would make everything cheaper this time around. Well, I just got back from the furniture store and her new bedroom set is going to be about $1600. I'm buying quality and it's a double bed, chest of drawers, bookcase, mirror and matress. I like it, but when I add on a duvet, a cover, pillows, paint, mouldings, blinds, curtains and accessories I'm looking at 2K!!! I'm going to wait to buy it until the end of August when there's no tax, which makes sense because her new room is filled with basement boxes.
I also just bought baby basics today, small pack of diapers, mittens, one nice outfit, nursing pads, can of formula, breast milk storage bags, pacifiers (I hope not to use them, dd never had one), and dropins. It came to $100.
I'm happily broke!
So that got me wondering, how many onesies, sleepers, etc are you getting in each size? I assumed my daughter would be big so didn't get any newborn clothes last time as half of babies take 3 mo. Size right away. This time I have four sleeps in NB and about six outfits in 0-3mos. I might get sone gifts but I don't know as my aunt hasn't mentioned my shower since she suggested it at the beginning.
So what baby basics are you getting and in what quantity?
