I have been doing quite a lot of research on different brands, prices and comparing EVERYTHING.
We had decided on the Mountain Buggy Swift for our pram a long time ago.
We know many people that have the Urban, but all now wish they had the swift.
We decided to get it in flint (Grey)
It is around the same price everywhere. $600 including the carry cot.
Having the carry cot is going to be really handy in the first few months. Especially when we go to Melbourne to visit my family. Bug will be able to sleep in it, instead of sleeping in a porta cot.
We also got a fleece liner and the storm and sun covers for it too.
We had always agreed that we wanted white furniture.
Originally we were going to get Boori. But then someone told us that King Parrot is also made by Boori, but is cheaper!
Bassinet. $199 including the mattress.
The Yarra cot. $399 including the mattress!
Very happy with this as it is normally over $500 plus the mattress.
Change Table. King Parrot Scout. On sale for $249. got the change mat thingy too. Will get some nice baskets to put on the shelves to store nappies and all the bits and bobs we will need to have on hand.
The car seat. Safe and Sound Premier. This seemed to be the same price everywhere we went and online where ever I looked.
It can be used from birth, but we are leading a friends capsule. They loved the capsule for the ease of it, being able to pull the baby in and out of the car without waking it and also not needing to worry about the pram every time they went out, because the baby could just stay in the capsule.
So we will give the capsule a go, it may not be for us. But it's free! So why not!
We also got the hygiene nappy thingy, that you put the dirty nappies in and they seal them up so there is no smells and lots of liner bags for it.
And do you remember the old bouncers that our parents all seemed to have for us?
Well my husband just loves them and although we have a bouncer (a different one) being lent to us, he wasn't hearing of it and wanted the bouncer.
We decided on Mint for the colour. Suits and boy or a girl and we just thought it was the nicest colour.
So all in all it was a very spensive Saturday morning... A $2000 morning actually.
But now we have so much stuff! Was very happy with the extra discount we negotiated and have become VIP members or something so we will always get 10% off full priced stuff.
There is still so much more to get, but it's nice to have made a start.
We wont be picking it all up until we move into the new house!!!
And will be picked up before the first weekend in June, so that when mum and dad come up to visit, dad and Erin can put it all together and we can make up the babies room!!!
