The Excitement of Buying for Your Baby

The Excitement of Buying for Your Baby

It is no secret that Ross and I have been trying for a baby for over 2½ years now. We paid a visit to the Fertility Show a couple of weeks ago and, thanks to that, we now have a plan which we will put into place in the New Year. On top of that, I have been keeping a diary of my feelings about my secondary infertility along with many other things and I will be sharing that at some point too.

One of the things I feel completely cheated out of from my last pregnancy is going baby shopping with the father-to-be. Grace’s father showed absolutely no interest nor excitement about choosing all the baby items we would need. In fact, he regularly shirked coming with me and I got quite desperate as it got nearer to Grace’s due date. Thankfully my mum came to the rescue and took me around to find many things, including a travel system from a little shop in Camberley. She kindly paid for most of it too. Grace had the cot that I used when I was a baby and we found a rocking chair on eBay for me to use when I fed her.

When we do eventually hit the jackpot, I have no doubt whatsoever that Ross will be extremely excited and will want to be involved in every single aspect – and that includes choosing which of the larger items we are going to need for our baby.

Of course, the fact that I am not expecting doesn’t mean that every so often I can’t have a look at what products there are out there. One of the many sites I like to look through is Online4Baby. They stock car seats, highchairs, stairgates, walkers and toys among many other things.

Wonder Kew Main

One of my favourite products is this Cosatto ‘Limited Edition’ 3 in 1 Wonder Travel System. I love the bright yellow trim and the grey and yellow pattern and it includes a car seat, carry cot, pushchair and even a matching parasol and changing bag. It looks so cheerful.

Online4Baby also have a great clearance section with lots of bargains to be found. You are able to shop for a specific price range and they offer 0% finance on any order over £500. 

I have to say that I really dislike staying in for deliveries but this company also offer an express delivery service with a precise one hour time slot. 

The next time around is going to be so much fun shopping for a new baby. I just hope we won’t have to wait too much longer.

    So hoping you get to do it all again properly as the shopping bit is half the fun … Apart from the bit when you get to the till and find out how much you’e just spent!

    Crossing everything for you both and Grace that you do get your little bundle of joy.

    If I had a “happy accident”, I’d plump for a Silver Cross coach built pram, I know they’re huge and not transport friendly but they’re lovely and so well made.

    Keep positive xx
