Baby monitors and other baby stuff

we sold our maxi cosi through local faceache. Sold easy peasy.
Ebay is bad enough, not sure I have the tolerance for Faceache!

What are those next2me cribs like? Someone wants to buy us one so interested to hear your opinion
It's been very very good to us, Mrs loved it as she didn't have to get up to feed in the night, and she's very close to us. We had two big daughters, and the weight limit is high. But they were both too big for it at 5 months. It has a higher weight limit than a moses basket etc.

Both girls were comfortable, but we used a sleepyhead in conjunction with it.

+1 for a white noise app, absolute godsend for getting them to sleep and then to stay asleep!

Also, for nappies and wipes, try using the 'Bum Deal' app - it's a live price comparison app and has saved us loads with our two.

We found having two moses baskets was useful (one upstairs, one downstairs) rather than trying to carry a sleeping baby up/down stairs in one.

Also gro-bags/similar are great for once they get a bit too big and fidgety for swaddling.

We tried the white noise app, and it worked, so we bought one of these:

It saves having a wifi/cellular device next to them for extended periods of time.

Our girls are highly alert, and only fall asleep with white noise and black out.

This is all good info for me as I don't really have a cute what we need, or more to the point whats worth investing in without wasting money on stuff we don't really need.

Standard procedure is to buy EVERYTHING, and then use 40-50% of it. If your Mrs wants another, she’ll hoard it all. If she doesn’t want another, she’ll probably still hoard it all...

Make sure you have plenty of loft space!

We’ve got so much shite up there. If we have another it’ll save us a fortune.

Currently looking at mid sleeper beds for him. Expensive for a shitty bit of mdf but a great storage solution in a small bedroom.

fb for sale section, best thing ever for a bed you will only have for a few years.

I have 3 kids.

The ones we’ve been looking at say they are good from 6-16. Ours is 3 and didn’t want to get out of it in the bed shop.

I’ll keep an eye on those though.

Dad tip for OP: Baby vests and baby grows can be removed two ways - the normal way of unbuttoning the poppers between the legs then pulling the vest up and over the head..... or (and this blew my mind when I first realised haha) they can be unfolded at the shoulders and removed downwards over the torso and legs.

This means when your baby does an explosive shart that escapes the nappy (always fun) you don't have to risk taking off the dirty clothing off by removing it over their head and face, making things worse.

You're welcome.

Yup, I always pull them downwards, so much easier!

Surplus to requirements in case anyone’s interested.

BT Baby Monitor Pacifier.

We’ve had this 6 years and it’s been excellent. Bought a Motorola with a video screen for our 2nd born and it lasted a year before it went it the bin. The BT unit saved the day.

The screen is a bit sketchy as you might be able to see in the picture but apart from that it’s fully functional.

Cover postage and it’s yours.

Can also vouch for that!^ I’ve had it 5 years and it gets used every day. I don’t use the monitor aspect now but my 16 month old likes the music and stars.

Also old thread but if anyone still references it...the shnuggle baby bath is the best invention I only wish I’d have had it when I had my first.

Well I wasn’t expecting when I made this thread that I’d be back in here so soon, we had our first scan today and there will be roughly 17 months between baby 1 and baby 2. Any tips from anyone!?

Fasten your seatbelts!

There’s a near 2-year age gap between my two. It is f**king horrific at the moment (my youngest is 6 months old).

Who’s the main culprit or does one set off the other? Our first has slept through the night right from about 10 weeks old so we’re probably a bit naiave.

My second one is on the way... being delivered in June. My other boy's coming up to 2 1/2

Most people tell me it's much harder! As I expected, but some people have told me certain things are easier too, such as them entertaining themselves. My boy is very needy, so it'll be good to have someone who'e always up for playing with him (eventually)

The youngest one is the only culprit! My elder child sleeps straight through, puts himself to bed after his story, etc - he’s so easy to deal with.

Just to update - I’m still on 2.5 hours sleep. Absolutely hanging now!
