What did you buy for your baby which you didn’t end up using/needing and what did you wish you bought that you didn’t think you would need?

  • Must have – cloths and plenty of them haha

  • Items which were a complete waste: cloth nappies and baby bath thermometer.

  • my must haves were the extralarge bubba blue wraps. =) i have 6 of those.
    i have a free standing baby bath than can be a change table as well with storage undereath – great space saver.
    i have a bouncer to keep bub calm.
    i have a tummy time mat and play center. =)

    those were my essentials.

  • buy lots of baby wipes and nappies – good to stock up on these whilst on special. don’t buy too many really small babysuits as they usually grow very quickly.

  • yes there are a lot of products that you don’t need. just think about what you will actually use and things that only last a child a few months are not worth the spend

  • My bag handle for the stroller, snot sucker and baby carrier are some of our best buys.

    If you walk everywhere, like us, a rain/wind cover for the stroller, a reversible seat and some kind of bike light/reflectors are also great.

    Our baby bath was our biggest waste, as we find it easier to just take bubs in the shower with us.

  • I never used my change table, and I wish I had bought my ergo baby carrier with my first bub instead of with my 5th! I had a convertible car seat for my first bub but wish I had had a capsule for the others.

  • I absolutely loved my bumbo seat for our twin daughters they can in handy for helping them sit up
