Welldone and Good day all, trust everyone is doing pretty well; I want to believe I'm not the only man here ***feeling shy*** I'd been with you on this thread where I learn things day by day; so I'm one of you smiley smiley smiley.

I and Wife was planning a baby shopping lists last night and we decided to include among other things; a crib/cot, stroller, bassinets, baby bouncer etc. We've been to the markets earlier where we saw some samples and were told the baby stroller can also serve as a crib for baby to sleep in day & night; instead of buying the baby cot and the baby stroller. I want the best for my child and at the same time have to consider my resources, we're finding it difficult getting our priority lists and here we need the advice of experienced mothers/fathers to help us out. Baby cot/Crib or Baby Stroller?, how long can it take the baby? What's the cost effectiveness? I'm afraid of buying things that will only serve for awhile and become useless. Please help out! Help prioritize our baby lists (We already have the hospital items).

Thank you!

Mcfemad, speaking based on my experiences. Both babies hated their cots/crib. To show displeasure they'd cry each time I put them in; if they slept and I put them in it they'd be sure to wake up in the next hour unlike when they slept on my bed or even on the parlour couch (with supervision of course).
Now for the stroller, because we live in an estate it has been very useful. I'm using the same one I used for my son for my daughter; her father takes her out in it most evenings.

Hummingbird, i think u should see ur doctor immediately. Next 2weeks is a long time. He may tell u to take some tests to rule out pre-eclampsia. Also don't let d stress of wedding preparations get to u. Make use of people around u to get things done. The ceremony will turn out fine even without u being overtly involved involved in d preparatns. I was in my first trimester when i got married too. I didn't bother about organising asoebi or other things. I let my sister handle most of those things. What matters now is ur health and that of ur baby. Wishing u a happy married life in advance.

@hummingbird,take ayandeez advice,go to ur doctor immediately,reduce ur salt intake and try not to stay standing for long,u shud also keep ur feet elevated anytime u can(place it on a stool wenever ure seated),don't worry tis well with u,d same hapend to me in my 1st pregnancy,after d doctor conducted tests,he gave me d same advice I just gave u cheesy

And take it easy wth d preparations,I was also pregers befor my wedin,and I just relaxed thruout,I didn't lift a finger to do anythn,cos I realizd my baby and wellbeing was more imptnt dan any event,wichever way d thing turnd out,I knew at d end of d day I wud be marid,so relax o

This product is a good to go one and its affordable. Wife liked it. We stay in Sagamu, Ogun state but not sure we can get it here. Is Jumia a safe site to do online transaction? (scared of online purchase...once bitten twice shy)
Re: Pregnancy Are You Pregnant Or Going Through A High Risk Pregnancy,,lets Talk by diamondlove: 10:23am On Apr 14, 2013
Jumia is not bad
I do most of my shoppings online and they get it to me at home, got a few products from them, they not bad at all
When you ending the transaction, choose the pay at delivery means
So when they bring, u pay them
Re: Pregnancy Are You Pregnant Or Going Through A High Risk Pregnancy,,lets Talk by Nobody: 10:30am On Apr 14, 2013
Please this Jumia,what's the full name of the site,so I can check it out.
