    Thanks Kimbaz, I actually already have one of them. DH bought it for me. Although, am thinking of taking off the high chair & porta cot, because I really haven't looked at any so not too sure of what brand I would prefer......

    I have a ABC brand porta cot and it works well....we only use it when we go to visit relos...feels soft and Chels sleeps better in it hten her cot here at home!!

    High chair we dont have yet....normally around 6 months old you buy them....well when they start

    Hi moglie,

    That really is an impressively thorough list!! If you haven't already stocked up, I would even ask for a box of Huggies nappies. They are expensive so great as a gift. Personally, I would omit the baby powder. I just found DS original powder the other day still full and that was 4 years ago!! Needless to say that it found it's way to the bin

    I hope you get everything you need.

    Can I also add that we bought our original high chair before I had DS. We got one that reclined and I used it from when he was 3 months old. He loved it. He was able to see me at my level and I just pushed it from kitchen to laundry to lounge room. He'd even fall asleep in it!!!

    Having said that, I'm going for an Ikea high chair for my next one...easy to clean

    Great list!

    Good on you for going cloth (I am a clothie too!) Could you be cheeky and ask for some lovely modern cloth nappies and/or covers? If you do a bit of research and pick a couple of brands for people to choose from they would make great presents.

    Thanks everyone for your suggestions.

    Lizzysmum - I had thought of that, but I dont see the demonstrator until next week, which would only leave a week for them to get things. I think I would prefer to order them myself, that way I actually get what I want, not what people think would be good for me & bubs. Sounds a little bit selfish but I have had problems asking for things (and specifying brands) and then getting something else similar but no where near as good. Its a great suggestion though.

    Great list!! I got a Jolly Jumper thing too - used later on but still a great gift I thought!! Good luck!

    Just a note on carriers if you are thinking of getting one I would recommend an Ergo - they are super comy and you can use them up to about 20kg. My DD still hops in ours regularly and she is 3 in June.
