Week 37 - Preparation

with roughly 4 weeks to go before we hit the full 9 months (38 weeks), i have somewhat settled the preparation to welcome baby no 5. 6 weeks ago i had basically nothing done, now i'm pretty much ticked everything i listed down. the past 6 weeks was just me making list, browsing, comparing prices, contacting seller, redoing list and purchasing items.

this time around, clothes took a back seat. yes, i still bought some but not many. we focused on the big items as we've given away all of them when we moved 2 years ago. while clothes took a back seat, they were the first things i bought. of course, you can't go wrong with mothercare. i grabbed them during the sale and from someone who shipped over from the UK. i also grabbed some from FOS especially in newborn sizes. i added socks and swaddling blankets to the list as i've given those away, i just kept clothes of the 4 eais.

cot bumpers and comforters…

of course the toiletries...

then came the feeding items - formula, avent bottles, sterilizer, drying rack.

and then the bigger stuff - cot, changing table, bathtub, playpen, car seat and stroller.

i have more stuff on the list, particularly for the next few months - baby cook, baby snug, food feeding items.

there's also stuff for me - maternity clothes (which i wore over and over again for 6 months), maternity belt, postnatal pack, postnatal clothes (thin t-shirts, long pants, socks), maternity pad, undies and the postnatal massage service (which i tried before deciding on)

once the changing table arrived in early september, i set out to wash and fold the clothes and organize the changing table. i like the many, many compartments and drawers of the table.
