28 weeks: ducks in a row
Even though we still have eleven-and-a-half weeks left, we're already getting the house ready for the new baby. We just set up the crib in Charlotte's room and have moved the dresser/changing table into our room for now (their room is too small to accommodate both!). The baby won't be sleeping in the crib until he's sleeping through the night, but we figured it was good for Charlotte to get used to having it in there. We'll have a co-sleeper in our room which is essentially a little crib that attaches to my side of the bed for easy overnight feeding and safe sleeping. He'll be sleeping in that for the first three to six months. I've also already washed and organised all of the baby clothes and they are now in their new home in the dresser/changing table in our room.
Overall I'm feeling very prepared! The only big thing left is to get a comfy chair to nurse in for our room. I looked into getting comfy cushions made for the wooden rocking chair in Charlotte's room, but decided a new chair would be most practical. I'll be sure to keep you all posted once we get it all figured out!
PS: Family and friends have generously started asking what else we need, so I've made an Amazon Baby Wish List for the remaining things we could use. You can find it by clicking here. It is through the UK Amazon site so you don't have to pay ridiculous shipping! Thank you!!
PPS: While I was at it, I also made an Amazon Wish List for Charlotte for Christmas and her birthday for those who've been asking!
