    Default Things you never ended up using with your first!

    So I'm clearing out DDs room, and I've just noticed how many things we've bought for her that have gone untouched!
    For example, the bath/change table maybe got used once or twice. Only used to bassinet for a month as we decided to co sleep. Baby bjorn carrier, are an absolute nightmare on my back so never used it, (have a moby, and I loooooove it!) Other things include -
    Breast pump, only used it for first month before we established a good routine.
    A million bottles because DD never took to them
    Wraps, mittens, oh I could go on. I wish I would've known do we could have saved on some money! Haha, what have you bought for you LOs and never ended up using?

    Bottles and breast pump...only got used a handful of times.
    One of those nappy wrapper bins (it was given to me so at least I didn't waste money on it).

    I don't think we brought anything we didn't use... however I was given so many bottles of baby oil, Johnson's baby wash and cream... we didn't use any of it.

    I used the heck out of sooo many of the already mentioned items Everyones different.

    I used the baby bath once. Luckily it was a hand me down from a friend so didnt cost me anything in the first place. That and stuffed toys.

    Hardly used the baby bath as it was a pain to fill and empty, especially after a c section.
    lots of receiving type blankets, we used them but just ended up with way too many and my 3yr old now uses them as dolls blankets.
    Breast pump-only used for a week or so.
    Curash products- thy were not good for her skin.
    Change table- used it in the beginning but then usually changed her on the floor in the lounge room because tags where the heating and cooling was.
