    Default Baby List - What you need and when?

    Hi everyone,

    I am starting to think about getting a list together with all of the items that we will need before the little one arrives.
    Does anyone have any checklists or Spreadsheets etc?

    I thought we could maybe use this thread as a checklist aswell, maybe make it a sticky.

    LL

    Lissy-great idea lovey.That way we can check with each other & not miss something important. I read jan/feb/mar thread lists awhile back thought it was a good idea.DH says i have to get my car back on the road before i can start buying the babies stuff especially with fortnightly appointments at the clinic.

    One thing I bought that I wish I'd just bought two big bags of was plain cloth nappies like the ones you buy from BigW. They serve well as portable change mats, quick blankets while out (or in capsule), head rests, spew rags, propping under breast while feeding etc. I am constantly washing ours and reusing over and over and I have them in the car, the baby bag, the nursery, the lounge room, the bedroom! They are invaluable.

    Also I found BigW does a checklist you can download from their website. Some stuff is not relevant (or branded) but I found it quite helpful to start me off.
