Hi I'm due to have baby #3 in may . Since my last child was five years ago I have no baby items left , I'm just wondering what items big and small do you have on your list of things to get . I'm also debating if we should get a capsule or a convertible car seat . All ideas and suggestion would be greatly appreciated .

A capsule is good because when bub falls asleep in the car you can just take the capsule inside with you and leave bub in it. They are good for up to about 6 mo ths. You may be better off renting one (try your state's ambulance service).
A rocker (you don't really need one of those ones that rock themselves)
A playmat with dangly things above it. Bub won't be interested in the dangly thing for a while so just don't use the bit that goes over the top for a while. The mat part is good for tummy time.
Microwave steriliser if you are bottle feeding or plan to occasionally express.
Chair for bub's room for feeding
A lamp (not too bright) for night feeds
Wraps, you can buy these in packs at Target, BigW, KMart. As bub is due in May you will need flanalette ones. When our bub was born in March we only found flanalette ones at BigW until winter started.
Cube style shelving units from Ikea are good

"Hey, come here a second," my mum said as she replaced the book in my hands with a wooden spoon covered in what I prayed was red sauce.
