I have to buy a new stroller - a double stroller to be exact. I have been looking, but they are all so damn expensive. My only real criteria in picking a new stroller is cost. Also, it wouldn't hurt if it looked halfway descent. But really, I am just focused on cost.
At first, I really wanted the seats to be side-by-side. I wanted both of my babies to have a nice view from the stroller. However after talking to my cousin Bean (who has twins), I have decided to go with a stroller with the seats arranged one behind the other. According to Bean, this type of stroller is much easier to navigate through stores.
Any suggestions or recommendations?
I also have to buy Porgie new bedroom furniture. I really want a convertible crib, but I am having a hard time finding a cheap one. With Porgie's original furniture, we spent way too much money. I only thing I can say to justify why we spent so much is because we were new parents. Actually, I spent way too much money on almost everything we bought for her.
This time around, I want affordable furniture and decorations. Any suggestions or recommendations?
I am confused about baby monitors. We have a monitor for Porgie's room, and I LOVE it. Being able to hear my baby at night is comforting to me. However, when the new baby comes, I want to be able to hear him too. I have suggested buying another monitor, but John thinks I am insane. He insists that Porgie doesn't really need a monitor any more. Obviously this isn't about Porgie - its about me and my comfort level. Although I could probably hear Porgie when she wakes up, I want to listen in on her during the night.
What do you think? Should I buy another monitor for the new baby?
