Baby Gift & Consignment Sale


I came home yesterday to find the following cute little outfits from my Mom (thanks Mom!). I think they are adorable! I love how they are complementary and not identical. I think I'll have the boys wear these little monkey sleepers home from the hospital in February (don't you love my optimism?!).

Last night J and I went to presale of a huge baby consignment sale. We spent around $140 and got some great deals. The big items we purchased are shown below, but we also bought three sleepers, two fleece, long-sleeved sleep sacks, one fleece, sleeveles sleep sack, and two organic cotton halo sleep sacks with swaddlers. All of the items look barely used and were a great price. I could've bought so much more, but given that I'm having 5 baby showers I figured I'd hold off for now on buying too much.

Double check on the first item you posted, the fisher price portable swing. I for some reason seem to remember there was a recall on it at one point bc the arm would not lift up? It might be a different one, so do not quote me, but I'd double check. :0)

All that said, we have the FP Rainforest soother, swing (large one), bouncy chair, mobile, jumperoo and activity mat and Tasha loved it all. I can't wait to use it again with this baby. I love the colours!

Little monkey sleepers for cute little monkeys? :) I'm so pleased that you're kitting out now and really enjoying this time, brilliant. Five baby showers sounds amazing too - you may never have to do a load of washing, ever :)

I have already bought some things too, you just can't help it!! Looks like you got some bargains...Have fun!

Your excitement is palpable! I feel it all the way over here in Ohio!

I love hearing the happy in your voice.

Shelley, the older version of the FP rainforest take-along swing was recalled in '07. This is the newer version. The older one had the mobile bar attach on both sides whereas this one has an attachment on one side that swivels, so the mobile is suspended above the baby. Thanks for the heads up though! :)

I just love shopping for baby stuff! I bet you had a huge grin on your face the whole time. Have a blast at your showers - you deserve it!

Looks like you got some great stuff! Bumbos are the best invention ever, great once they are holding their heads up. I also LOVE the little fold up swings, Sarah would nap in hers all the time. 5 showers, you'll get more than you need from those! Yay!

Oops ... I misunderstood the recall, but did look and the swing we have doesn't have start with a K (the recalled ones). So, we are fine. Thanks again Shelley!

I love the little monkey sleepers, and the fact that they are similar but not the same, I will (god/universe/something bigger then little I hopefully willing) do the same (I wonder when the wanting to preface anything that has to do with the future and twins being in my arms will have to come with long explinations).
I am so going to need your guidance on what the heck twins actually need.

Love the sleepers!! They will look so cute on their way home! Great buys at the sale too!

FWIW I have the recalled Rainforest swing. The bars are a little different and I think the mobile is on the other side. You should be good. :)

How exciting. I can't wait to start buying things too. :)
