Ainsley- huge congrats on your perfect pair, how adorable, you must be so excited!l
Riss- good luck for your 20wk scan too. I have 3 different Bounty bags too and all 3 have the checklist in them so I think you'll be in luck.
JJTiger- like October suggested, I've been told and am planning to use Purity. Apparently it's reasonably priced and you can use it for all loads, not just baby clothes. I've also been told that Omo Sensitive is good for babies, if you're after another recommendation.
Arlais- I'm happy to hear you are sticking to your chosen name but understand your disappointment. I had told everyone our preferred boy and girl name and wasn't sure if I regretted being so open about it. Luckily we were more set on our boy name and since we found out we were having a girl, we started thinking of other names. I've started to tell people that we aren't convinced of the previous name and are reconsidering. Yesterday, we decided on a new name for our little girl and only our closest family know it. I'm sure others will start asking in a few weeks if we have picked a name but I have a list of 4 or 5 girls names we really like that we'll say we're still deciding between.
Orchids- I haven't heard of epi-no but will have to look it up and find out about it.
As for bottle feeding, I've been told to establish a good breast feeding routine (if you choose to and are able to) and introduce a bottle at around 6wks of age, any earlier and the baby may refuse to go back to the breast. I then plan to get DH to bottle feed expressed milk once a week (apparently if we do it, bub will smell our breast milk and get confused) so she gets used to taking a bottle, that was DH feels more involved and if bub is with my parents, I can leave them with expressed milk. I also bought closer to nature bottles, as the teats are supposed to be similar to a nipple. Hope this makes sense...
