Baby Item Log

Purchased New:

  • Nothing yet, but we’ll get here once my registry completion discount kicks in.

Free Used / Used Gifts:

  • Several baby clothes from SIL
  • Moby wrap from SIL
  • Assortment of baby clothes from local buy/sell/trade group
  • MyBreastFriend nursing pillow from local Buy Nothing group
  • Diaper pail from local Buy Nothing group (thrown in when I picked up the nursing pillow)
  • Even more baby clothes mailed to me by an out-of-town friend looking to get rid of them.

New Gifts:

  • Cute baby clothes from my mom, who was very excited
  • $100 target gift card from MIL & FIL
  • Cute cozy blanket and cute onesie from a friend

Purchased Used – $505:

  • Oeuf Robin/Rhea crib via NextDoor, $300 (came with toddler conversion kit and a changing station that can be secured to crib or a dresser – probably will secure to a dresser since we have space and securing to the crib seems odd).  It came with an organic latex mattress that I’m evaluating for use or replacement.
  • Halo Bassinest Premier via NextDoor, $100 and infant insert via Facebook Marketplace, $20.  Infant insert was a bit of a risk because it overall doesn’t have great reviews and I can’t return it, and probably has limited resale.
  • City Mini GT stroller via Craigslist, $75.  This model is a bit older, but it was in good shape and we can always replace if it turns out not to work out.
  • 6 sleepsack / swaddles for $10 via neighbor on Craigslist:  4 SwaddleMe lightweight cotton sleepsacks (7-14 lbs, 0-4 months), 1 small SwaddleMe fleece sleepsack (7-14 lbs, 0-4 months), 1 newborn Halo cotton sleepsack (6-12 lbs, 0-3 months)

Need / wish list:

  • Car seat.  Current fav is Nuna Pipa, but not set on it due to price. More practical / cheaper pick is the Chico Keyfit 30. The Cybex Aton 2 is also on the radar.  Planning to buy new.
  • Stroller adapter for car seat.
  • Probably another baby wearing device like the ergo baby or lille baby.
  • Dresser, which will double as a changing table.  Will look used, otherwise considering the Ikea Hemnes 8 drawer.
  • Changing pad / cover
  • Rocker / Glider.  Was intending to find a used one but may buy new because the used ones are all super ugly.
  • Bottles, etc.
  • Manual breast pump
  • Drying rack for bottles, bottle brush
  • Diapers – likely disposable, but maybe will try some cloth
  • Wipes and other diaper related supplies
  • Diaper bag backpack, gender neutral style
  • Baby activity gym, likely the IKEA LEKA.  Possibly used, but only if it is close enough or free.
  • Baby monitor.  Might just do audio, undecided.
  • Muslin blankets for swaddling
  • Pack & Play with a bassinet level (no napper/changer).
  • Baby swing or bouncer.
  • High chair? We have a trip trap knock off in the garage that we may be able to use.  This is not an immediate need anyway.
  • Toys, books for baby
