I wanted to share with you all a few of the baby purchases I have made so far. I’ve decided it’s better to buy slowly instead of all in one go and at the last minute. So whenever there’s a sale, discount event or coupon I receive I head down to the shops with my card ready to go.
On Saturday we woke up early and headed off to a NCT Nearly New Sale. This is where parents can sell items that they’ve used a couple of times and don’t need anymore. I honestly was so impressed with the quality of items and for such bargain prices! There’s another one in February in my area and I will of course be attending to see what other bargains I can snap up.
Here’s a massive pile of onsies, tops, leggings, blankets etc I bought on the day which all came to a grand total of around £25! As we don’t know the sex of the baby we stuck to whites, greys and even a few blue colours.
I also snapped up one of those baby bjorn baby carriers for £20, which usually retails for around £64 and upwards.
I really like the Jelly Cat brand their bunnies and soft toys are great quality and I love the feel of them! The second photo includes some swaddle blankets from Aden + Anais and Sophie the Giraffe, which I mentioned in my previous post were musts for any baby! I picked the above baby items at a department store discount event where everything was 20% off.
Next is quite a big purchase and something we looked into a lot, we read reviews, watched YouTube videos and then made our decision to go with this brand of bottles. I want to breastfeed my baby at the start but it’ll be nice for Freddie to feed his baby too, so it was a must to have bottles at the ready for when baby arrives.
