I had a couple registries going right before we lost Bremy last year. In fact, I found out I was on strict bed rest just four days before my first baby shower in Southern California. So, I never had one. Probably a good thing, seeing as every little baby item just sent me to tears after we lost our daughter. Luckily, we only had a few items in my house and my mother in law swiftly removed them before I returned from the hospital.
Just a couple weeks ago, I agreed to collect these items from her home where she'd been storing them for us. Since we are conveinently having another girl, we can make use of all of the gifts and purchases we had made.
My mom, brother and I did a lot of craigslist shopping in the weeks before Bremy's loss. Since we live in three different cities, it was nice to scour CL for exactly what I wanted.
Here's what I have so far:
Maclaren easy traveller
I knew I wanted an easy, lightweight option for the infant stage and this fit the bill. Maclaren boasts better height, and since I'm tall and hubby is taller, this was perfect. I think my brother got it for $30!
Bumbo with tray-my mom found this brand new on CL in Aqua
Cart cover- another brand new CL find. It's a black and white damask for $5
BUT, I know there are a ton of things I still need and I'd LOVE for you to leave your best rec's in the comments for me. I haven't bought a thing without a recommendation from a mom. So let me know what stuff I need!
