babybjorn - my ds didnt like being in it and then he got so heavy quickly that it was only used about 6 times (ill go with the ergo next time)
nappy disposal system
heaps of different bottles to try out different teats, toddler spout bottles, etc and so many different bowls for feeding (wasted so much money trying them out)
nappy bag - too bulky to fit onto the pram properly
leapfrog little leaps grow with me system (game console and games for babies & toddlers)- couldnt get it to work :/
i regret allowing someone else to choose the pram for us - they bought the steelcraft acclaim as a present, i would have chosen something completely different
breast pumps - got both of the avent ones - auto and manual, but then my milk was pretty much gone by about 5 months
change table - like everyone else has said - it was good for a few months but once ds started rolling, i put the mat on the floor, i didnt want to risk him rolling off
cloth swim nappies - the swim school that we took ds to wouldnt allow cloth ones, only disposable
im sure there are heaps more items, i just cant remember atm
but i love those hooded towels, i still use them with ds
I am happy with almost everything I have purchased, as I have done a lot of research on products prior to buying.
One waste of money was the big matching linen set I bought when I was pregnant - the only useful thing is the fitted sheet (DS sleeps in grobags). And I saw the same set for a fraction of the price online a few months later. I learned my lesson, always shop around online once you decide on the exact product you want, it's saved me a fortune
and baby overalls that didnt have buttons at the crotch for nappy changing
Definitely the baby swing. She hates it so much lol. And bottles. She won't drink from any of them. You name a teat and my baby won't drink from it ha ha ha

Impractical clothing. Denim jeans for a newborn - wtf?! Jumpsuit with the zip going down one leg only, so you have to squish the other leg up and out for a nappy change.
Personally I found one pieces with press studs running down the inside of both legs the best - even better when they continued up the chest.
I loved our change table and used it till DD was out of nappies at 22 months
I regret buying a Mini Monkey sling it was too big and awkward to use. But I LOVED my Hug-a-bub, ring sling, Kozy and Beco Butterfly 2 (can you tell I love baby wearing???)
Also we were given a horrible plastic mobile for the cot. Yuck yuck yuck.
