My Sisters Baby

My sister is having a baby soon, in fact she is actually past her due date. I'm not sure what to expect really, I will be an auntie! How odd. So obviously she has been pregnant for a good 9 months and in that time she has been preparing herself.

All mothers worry about money troubles and what the baby will bring, money troubles are always on a parents mind and getting making sure you have everything before the baby is born is the first thing on the list of parental responsibilities. She has been collecting items from friends and relatives that they don't need any more, such as baby carriers, strollers and push chairs. That's one of the least expensive ways to do things. If people aren't using an item anymore, why not just go for something like that? One thing that you must make sure though, is that you check the safety of these devices. If someone has had a push chair locked away for a good few years, it's best to check that the materials haven't weakened and that it is perfectly safe to use. The worst thing to happen would be to have one of these devices fail on you and you or your child get harmed.

But it's not just big devices that a newborn will require, you'll be looking at getting nappies/diapers, changing tables, baby bags (to carry all the toiletries) and lots more. Babies can and WILL be expensive, its all about making sure you are prepared, and setting out a budget for yourself. There are lots of places that you can get baby products online, even at a discount. Make sure you keep your eyes open and do a thorough search. Not only will preparation keep you on your toes, but it will also benefit your bank account in the long run.
