    Congratulations! The only tips I have is to make sure you pack up your DD's room last but set it up first so everything is ready for bedtime for her. I also use the same sheet set so her bed smells familiar. Good luck and enjoy your new house

    Try and pack each room seperately so no mixed boxes and label every box thoroughly in case you desperately need to find something later on.
    try and get lots of help on move day.
    eat off paper plates and cups for a few days leading up to move so u can pack up most of kitchen

    We have two sets of JollyKidz play pens, which is normally one big pen. We made two pens so that we had somewhere safe to put DS in, and didn't have to take it back and forth between houses, when we moved last month.

    We also set up his port-a-cot in the new house for his afternoon nap, until we could set up his regular cot.

    Both tubes removed after (natural) ectopic PG on 27/5/13

    I find tackling one room at a time helps. So pack everything up in the middle of the room, wash walls, windows, etc.. then close the door and move on. So when everything is actually moved out, you only really need to do a spot clean of each room.
