Baby Bargains Galore

Last week there was a baby sale at a school right by our house, and Bob and I really cleaned up! We also got some great advice.

We had been planning to buy a separate car seat and stroller instead of the combo. It just sounded like too much work. One of the moms at this sale told us the benefits of a stroller combo - the most important being "when the baby is sleeping, you want the baby to keep on sleeping." That's some really great advice and point of view we'd never have known until after Little Elvis was born.

We also found out about a great site - ourkids.com. This site lists all of the major baby sales around our area. So this week we went to Gaithersburg, Maryland, and again, we really cleaned up. We also took the camera this time and got great info from experienced moms about these sales and motherhood in general.

Next week my mom is coming to town and she' s already picked out the sales she wants to go to. We still have to get a crib, stroller/carseat, and playpen. Clothes I'm steering clear of because my mom has already outfitted the baby for summer and I'm sure every other season for the next two years will be coming soon.
