    Default What did you forget to buy for your baby?

    I'm 35 weeks and have been making a little list of things I've seen mentioned on here that I still need to buy for baby (and me!) Does anyone have any suggestions of fiddly little things that you forgot to buy for either baby or yourself in the early days I can add?

    So far I have:

    Snot sucker
    Baby Panadol
    Face washers from cheap shop
    Electronic forehead swipey thermometer
    Baby sunscreen
    Baby Vicks
    Pram fan

    Flushable fresh wipes
    Ural

    Dont know if you would want to add a vapouriser. We used one for ds when he was a few weeks old after his sister gave him a cold. It helped him at night

    Yes, vaporizes are great! Maybe keep an eye out and pick on up when it's on special.

    I still don't own a vaporiser and my oldest is nearly 9 years old! haha

    I can't think of anything that we needed to rush out and buy.

    A friend forgot to buy blankets for the bassinet or cot. She thought swaddling would be enough but her Autumn baby needed a blanket.
