1. What is the gender of your LO? Surprise

2. Do you have a name picked out and if so, what is it? undecided

3. Are you registered anywhere? nope

4. What is the weather like in September where you live? usually still sweltering hot, but it's not unheard of to be cool by then. I'm in the midwest.

5. Is there anything specific you don't need? We're pretty set on clothes.

6. Is there anything specific that you need more of? Can always use diapers. Hoping to acquire a wrap carrier of some sort (though that exceeds the $ limit, I'm sure). Could use a couple more crib sheets. Nothing is totally necessary, but anything is appreciated. (So have fun shopping, in other words! lol)

7. Are you using cloth or disposable diapers? Disposable

8. Is there a certain brand of diapers you prefer? Wipes? No preference. Pampers Swaddlers worked great for DD when she was a newborn. We used mostly Luvs after that, just because of cost. But I'm not picky! Biggrin

9. Do you plan on using organic? No

10. What colors will you have in your nursery? Baby will share a room with DD. Walls are currently white (though if DH gives in, we'll paint them). Bedding for DD was jungle/animals, and she's still in a toddler bed, so the kids will be sharing sheets.

1. What is the gender of your LO? Girl
2. Do you have a name picked out and if so, what is it? Baby girl is unnamed, and once a name is figured out, it will be kept to ourselves Smile
3. Are you registered anywhere? No
4. What is the weather like in September where you live? Here in my part of Canada, cool.
5. Is there anything specific you don't need? Please please please don't send me receiving blankets, sleepers or onesies. I have more than enough to cloth a few girls at once lol. If a onesie comes with an outfit you find that's fine, but other than that, please no more lol.
6. Is there anything specific that you need more of? Girl outfits/dresses that are good for fall/winter. Cute little headbands would be good too!
7. Are you using cloth or disposable diapers? Disposable
8. Is there a certain brand of diapers you prefer? Wipes? We use Pampers for both diapers/wipes.
9. Do you plan on using organic? Nope
10. What colors will you have in your nursery? No true nursery, but she will share a room with her sisters when the time is right. It is a Tinkerbell based room done with purple walls and pink trim.

EXTRA INFO: I tend to have big babies - in the 9lb range. If buying an outfit(s) please buy size 0-3 months, or 3 month outfits that are suitable for the cool fall through cold winter. We absolutely love dresses that come with matching tights/headbands and outfits with pants, shirts, socks or even headbands, though these aren't 'must haves' so don't go out of your way if you can't find anything like that. We also like toys that are fun but have some sort of educational value, though I think all toys have those qualities these days. Teddies are alright to send, as well. If buying body wash/shampoos, these are fine, and we're not picky on brands or scented/non scented. Never had any issues with these. We're pretty easy going and are very happy with whatever anyone would like to buy/send. We are also not picky on characters, we do the whole Pooh/Disney thing lots so those are fine Smile

Just seeing this. Wink

1. What is the gender of your LO? Girl
2. Do you have a name picked out and if so, what is it? Selah Elianah
3. Are you registered anywhere? nope
4. What is the weather like in September where you live? not sure, first year here... have been told it starts cooling off into the 50s and 60s some

9. Do you plan on using organic? not necessarily, but would be HAPPY to try some organic products

We tend to like toys that are more old fashioned, no batteries and don't really do characters on clothing either. I think Selah's signature animal is going to be a "zebra"... so anything with zebras on it would be really cool. (DS's signature animal is a hedgehog and DD has gravitated to elephants.)

1. What is the gender of your LO? Girl
2. Do you have a name picked out and if so, what is it? So far just a first name. - Elise
3. Are you registered anywhere? no
4. What is the weather like in September where you live? typically warm and dry (15-ish degrees C)
5. Is there anything specific you don't need? wipes, towels
6. Is there anything specific that you need more of? not really, I've got lots of little girl stuff
7. Are you using cloth or disposable diapers? only cloth
8. Is there a certain brand of diapers you prefer? Wipes? The only thing I really need is a couple of covers...prefer Thirsties size small. I have plenty of cloth wipes
9. Do you plan on using organic? Yes, but not exclusively10. What colors will you have in your nursery? Plan to have mint colour on the walls, and white bedding with red ladybugs

Other: I am petite, and DD was a very petite baby - 7lb but no fat, just long and skinny - I expect this one to be largely the same. Carter's, baby Gap/Old Navy have a nice longer trim fit. I would really like some more Carter's newborn sleep sacks - the ones with an elastic bottom - but they're really hard to get up here. We also have sensitive skin, so I'd prefer no soap, shampoo or other body products. We also don't "do" trademarked characters.
