I had a fabulous weekend of fun (how is it already friday?!) as it was my husband’s birthday. We went to John Lewis and bought a bunch of things for Baby Bug, which was fun and, also, made me feel better/like we were doing something. So, what did we buy?
The Rachel Cotbed from John Lewis. I liked the chunkiness of this cotbed as well as the fact that it turns into what looks like an actual bed, rather than a “this looked better as a cot” type bed, which I’ve seen around.
The mattress thing was all a bit WHAT. We went for the Premium Foam mattress () just because I didn’t actually like any of the spring ones, even though they were more expensive.
We’ve ended up with two bumpers because I’m a bit mental. We got this adorbs Noah’s Ark one because ANIMALS as well as the Airwrap Four-Sided Baby Cot Bumper because it says “SAFER THAN A BUMPER” at the top and so I bought it. It covers all four sides of the cot which, to me, makes sense if the point of the bumper is to stop hands/legs/heads getting caught. Anyway. Panic buys are fun every now and then.
We’re planning to buy a chest of drawers from IKEA (Hemnes for the win) and I’m toying between either another chest of drawers or a changing table like this one. There is a built-in wardrobe in the room also, which is handy.
Finally, we bought some Farrow & Ball Cornforth White paint – it’s a lovely light grey colour which will go on the walls. Now, all we need to do is get paintin’ and decoratin’…
