Hubby and I are expecting our first child in march. We've found a great house to buy (current apartment too small) but there is no bath in the bathroom and there room that would be the nursery is 2 x 2.4m. Bath will only become an issue after a few months I know but I loved having baths as a kid and I feel sad at the thought of my baby missing out on that by having showers with me or bathing in some sort of plastic tub somewhere. And I don't know how I will fit everything in such a small nursery - surely a cot, change table, chest of drawers and feeding chair can't all fit?! I consider all those things essentials. Hubby says I am being too picky - "the baby can bath in a tub in the living room" and "all you need in the nursery is a cot, feed on the couch in the living room, put the baby clothes in the linen cupboard, and put the change table in our bedroom". Am I being silly and inflexible, or do I have valid concerns? Would you buy this house if you were expecting your first baby?
