    Biggest regret was my twin electric breast pump! Unless you have to go back to work pretty much straight away, I recommend only getting a single electric pump or even a manual pump which does the trick just fine.
    It is a fantastic pump for those who may need it though and did prove useful for the large volumes of milk I was producing!

    Cot sheet/quilt sets. Pillows, quilts, bumpers etc are all SIDS risks yet those bed sets sell for a few hundred dollars!!????!!!???!

    Love my change table.

    Used my nappy disposer for dd1 but not dd2 - cartridges are too expensive

    Breast pads. I rarely leaked and could've just made do with the.freebies in the bounty bag.

    Sleeping bags for under 6 months...we wrapped DS1 up to 5 months.

    After 6 months...Grobags. DS1 preferred the cheaper Target and Pumpkin Patch ones!

    Also still can't live without change table. Still use it for DS1 at 20 months!

    Oh I thought of more...

    Breast pads I Definately needed, didn't have enough I was constantly leaking...!!!

    Just use normal overnight or super pads rather than maternity.

    Bumbo complete waste of money for us but I know others that love it.

    Nappy stacker... Looks pretty but you don't need it.

    Basically you can make babies as cheap or expensive as you want..... Buy 2nd hand clothes, newbies only really need onesies or singlets depending on your location.

    All the muslin wraps we bought for ds were a waste he hated being wrapped.

    Glass bottles are a good idea but if you are useing expressed milk you cant use them as all the fats stick to the sides

    Lol@Spideys! You're the opposite to me. Love my nappy stacker for all the cloth nappies. Love the bumbo. Didn't need the breast pads. Makes me smile that mummy experiences are always so different!

    It's amazing how different each parenting journey is isn't it?

    You really don't know what you will or won't Need / use until your bubby is here.
