A Red Rose Baby WishlistAfter LM was born we decided that we weren't going to have any more children. A feeling that lasted until she was about eighteen months old when my feelings changed, and then so did Ian's, and we decided that three was the magic number. In this time we'd given away all of our baby equipment, to my brother for my niece who was born nine months after LM. In fact the only thing we'd managed to keep was LM's old travel system which was lurking in the loft as we hadn't got around to passing it on or selling it yet!
Two and a half years since LM's birth and the baby market has moved on - there are some fantastic products around and I've been adding some of them to a mental wishlist over the past few weeks. I think, with a third baby, we're well aware of what they actually 'need' so we haven't been going crazy buying all of the latest gadgets and gizmos but it doesn't stop me looking!
First up, the travel system. We'll be using our old Graco Evo system which will be fine but... well... prams are my thing so it's very easy to get excited about them. When I first saw the Cosatto Ooba at at patterntastic afternoon way back in Summer 2013 I fell in love a little and I've been trying to persuade Ian that Red Rose Baby 'needs' it. He's not for changing his mind though!
A bouncer chair has always been an essential for us and I've been browsing the fab range at Online4Baby. They are stockists for the rather amazing looking 4Moms Mamaroo swing but we decided to go with Graco (again) and choose the Swing 'n' Bounce 2 in 1 Swing. I like that this can be used as both a swing and a bouncer so it should be good for keeping baby away from it's big sister. We've never actually had a baby swing before so I'm hoping Red Rose Baby will take to it!
We're definitely considering a bedside crib for Red Rose Baby this time, I really like the idea of the new range of bedside cribs on the market. The Chicco Next2Me is a great priced option and would be perfect for those night time feeds. The Dove Grey version looks great and would be perfect in any bedroom I think.
All of the above items are available at Online4Baby and I couldn't fault the service we recceived from them. Orders over £50 are delivered free of charge and if you order before 3pm you can receive express delivery the next day, great if you forget something essential! They have a huge range of products with some of the most competitive pricing around. We'd definitely recommend them.
