    Also, op shops are great for good quality hardly worn newborn and infant clothes. They don't need many changes of outfit in the beginning as they don't really get too dirty until they are crawling about.

    Dont buy anything new -- except the carseat (and possibly cot mattress) unless you are buying from someone you know & trust (so you can be 100% sure it hasnt been in an accident)

    Gumtree, ebay, australian baby bargains, op shops, facebook buy & sell pages.

    This time around I have spent very little on bubs.
    Cot $20 from a facebook sale page
    Cot sheets $10 from a friend
    Cot mattress $60 brand new on sale
    Drawers with change mat $50 gumtree
    Capsule hired for 6 months $80
    Carseat floor clearance stock at a baby store $200 LAYBY!
    Clothes -- given to us, bought afee outfits on clearance, op shops, ebay
    Baby blankets $10 huge bundle from a garage sale
    Swing $20 at a garage sale
    Pram $80 gumtree
    Mcns from a friend. Also found packs of disposable nappies on clearance for $2 so stocked up on them!!!
    Ergo & baby bouncer gifts from family

    My only real ongoing expense is formula at $18 a week. I do keep an eye out at op shops / garage sales etc for clothes in bigger sizes and stash them away :-)

    I agree newborns don't need much...but don't forget no cot means your baby is going to sleep with you in your bed and you can't put them anywhere else. ...at all....so if you don't want to do that you can get a second hand cot or buy a cheap one. Do you have a place called Savers where you are? It sells things ppl have donated sometimes brand new.

    Unless you want to hold or wear ur baby ur baby everywhere ur out then get a pram... if don't want to wear it... you gotta hold it...what if it's nap time when your out? What if ur on your own and you gotta do shopping and go to the toilet??? or just want to go for a walk?? You can't put ur baby down anywhere. I bought a pram from an online ebay business... $170 including postage from qld!! I'll try and find the link for you. It served us really well

    Nappies, if going disposable, get Aldi ones.
    Clothes - you'll be given heaps of cute things, just buy onesies and singlets. The target ones for $6 are just as good as bonds.
    Furniture - i agree, second hand. I do think you should get a pram, just walking around the neighbourhood with it is good for your sanity. (Also some newborns are too vomity to carry).
    Bath bub in kitchen sink. Warm water only, or maybe olive oil.
    Toys - don't bother. You'll be given heaps. The world will be brand new to bub, stuff you have lying around the house already will be entertaining enough.

    We are expecting our first soon & have spent very little. I have had a cot, bassinette & change table given to us (along with many toys, clothes, blankets etc). Bought a perfectly good pram 2nd hand for $50. Stocked up on Aldi nappies, just need a few more singlets & onsies & I'll be set. Will probably hire a capsule initially, then buy a convertible car seat later on.

    I haven't prepared a nursery or shopped for lots of pretty things. Baby will room with us. I'll set up a child's room when they are older.
