Baby Clothes Shopping

Leo and I went shopping today for baby clothes and like any pair of excited parents, I think we overdid it. :)

We first went to SM Makati to canvass for cribs and strollers. We found a nice wooden crib that can be converted to a toddler bed but it costs a freaking P29K! We did find a nice Gracco crib for more than half the price (P12K). It can be converted into a playpen later on. It also has a changing pad so we're considering that as an alternative.

We're also choosing between a Gracco (P12K) and Chicco (P11K) stroller. I'm more partial to the Gracco because it has this thingee that monitors the temperature.

After that, we then looked for other baby stuff. These are what we bought:

The yellow thing at the top is a foam thingee where I can place the baby when I give him a bath. There's the rubber mat as well which can be placed underneath the foam among other uses.

I also bought 3 4 oz evenflo feeding bottles. My friend Cess, recommended this to me. She also suggested Gerber but SM says they're out of stock.

The chicco thing underneath the bottle was actually a gift from my sister-in-law. It's a crib mobile which will go well with the crib.

The white thing on the right is a hooded sweater with pants that can be worn by the baby. I bought a lot of Winnie the Pooh stuff at SM.

After SM, Leo and I went to this place at Bel-Air for more baby clothes. The two items on the left are some stuff that I bought. Actually, the two items are just some of the stuff that we bought from the Bel-Air place. I think we went crazy as everything's so cheap! Our P2K got us more than 20 pcs of baby clothes! I love the hooded and flannel blankets that we got. I'm really so excited. The picture above shows the number of baby clothes that we already have. Most of it was given to us by my sister-in-law. I already bought Cycles detergent to wash the clothes before I give birth.

I really can't wait seeing my baby wear all these baby clothes!

Excited nako for you!

Sunshine Sangalang said...

anong klaseng sterilizer ba ang ok? may nakikita ako yung microwavable. yung breast pump, baka pigeon nalang na manual (or yung puwedeng battery). too expensive yung electric (puwede na akong bumili ng stroller!).

Sunshine Sangalang said...

excited na rin ako! i want to see and hold my baby na. hehe :)

sayang bumili ka na ng bote...papasalubungan pa naman kita paguwi dyan nina mommy :) kasa na ang sterilizer. I use microwavable sterilizers. fast and easy to use. manual breast pump?? don't they give it in hospitals once you're discharge???

wait, yung baby monitor na binigay ko wala sa picture??? :)

teka, and what detergent do you use for your baby clothes??? dapat yung pang baby kase extra sensitive pa ang skin nila :)

hi sunshine. pigeon manual is ok (yung may extra bottle), yun din ang gamit ko noon. i used it twice, hiniram pa ng kapatid ko, so durable din.

graco and chicco are both good brands. we used a chicco stroller, and it was used twice, we go out a lot noon, nadala ko pa sa parks and zoos, nilalagyan ko pa ng groceries. never nagka- sira, punas lang and it looked good as new. pinag agawan pa ng officemates ni raymond nung nag-garage sale kami ng baby stuff ;)

Nakakaexcite naman ito! Better tell Leo to text me the moment you give birth! I bet si Leo can't wait as well and sina Boying and Jojo must be over the moon for the first boy Sangalang! Hehe. Parang royal birth ito ah! Thanks for posting.

claudine - sus, 3 bote lang ang binili ko. sige, bigyan mo pa ako. oonga no, andito pa yung baby monitor. sige, picturan ko rin siya. atsaka yung breast pump, parang di yata binibigay. tinanong ko yung officemates ko na nanganak, sila pa talaga ang bumili. as for the detergent, i use cycles--it's gentle and talagang meant for baby clothes.

cess - thanks for the advice. baka mga pigeon ang bilhin ko. meron akong nakita yung semi-automatic (yung puwede lagyan ng battery). sabi ng mga officemates ko, better raw yung manual. wala nga yata ang nag-electric sa amin.

tita norrie - actually mama and papa want a girl pero boy eh :) they're excited din kasi may baby na naman dito sa bahay.leo's more excited kasi siya yung may gusto ng boy. hehe.
