Hi all, I had a quick look but couldn't find another post on this topic.
I'm just after some advice on what the bare minimum of baby furniture and equipment etc to get before arrival should be. It's our first on the way, and we were looking at having the baby stuff set up in our bedroom initially rather than in a separate room. We'll also be looking to buy as much second hand as we can (except mattress etc).
I was thinking bassinet (smaller & portable) or crib, then possibly a chest of drawers with a change mat set-up on top. I know we could change on our bed but we are both quite tall so it would be easier having something higher up (and we'd need the extra storage anyway I'm sure).
We don't really have an ideal place for bathing, and sorry if this is a stupid question, but would one of those trug buckets work? You know the flexible ones that are everywhere these days? Otherwise I'm sure I can get a cheap baby bath second hand somewhere.
Car seats and pram, but we'll probably look into that later as we are still discussing which sorts to go for.
Does anyone have thoughts on anything else (apart from clothes and towels and sheets etc) that would need to be added to this list as necessary? I guess we need a lidded soaking bucket for nappies?!
Thanks for your help!
