Back on topic! I need advice on bottles and nipples as well. If my daughter is going to be 9 months when I pick her up, would I get a "medium" or a "fast" nipple? It's been suggested I get the Playtex bottles with liners for easy sterilization while traveling.... yes? Which bottle size the 8 oz. or the 4 oz.?
Also, does anyone know of a good co-sleeping system?
Also, just a heads up for anyone else doing the registry on Babies R' Us... if you pick any option other than "customize your own registry one item at a time", watch out! They will add all sorts of things on there you might not be interested in.. HIGH TICKET ITEMS such as cribs! As well as medium ticket items such as strollers and also decorative items which may not go with your style at all! I initially chose "natural mom" and found about 20 items I had no interest in had been added to my registry without my express consent. I'm so glad I checked! So then it took 2 hours to painstakingly remove each item one at a time (no mass removal possible). Just a warning....
For those of you who would like to support me in this adoption (I mean family here) please do not purchase anything except the low ticket items as I'm not sure about the big ones yet. I will let you know when the registry is final. And THANK YOU!!!!!!
This is overwhelming, but also exciting. I've been putting it off under the guise of "waiting for the court passing" but I realized I can't leave EVERY purchase until I pass court, because once I pass court, I'll be super busy getting ready to travel, getting immunizations, airline tickets, getting a visa, packing for myself plus a little one, getting donations organized, etc. So the shopping must start. Woe! Woe is me!
