Primark Baby Haul September 2019

Today I am going to be sharing with you some of the baby clothing items which we have already purchased for player 4. As you might know by now we are not finding out the gender we are keeping it a surprise until they arrive. I promise even we do not know the gender and are not keeping it from you.  So a lot of the things which you see in this haul are going to be white or very neutral colours for this reason. I have gone a bit Disney heavy which is not normally like me however, they have had some adorable pieces in

Primark is a place which I have been loving. We have managed to pick up some amazing bits in there. I am sure we will be back before the baby is born. If I am not mistaken we got a few bits for Jess from there when she was young as well. However, it is somewhere which I rarely shop at the moment for Jess. There is no reason why, however, they do have some nice natural pieces for babies in there.

The first one which we picked up is this set of hat and scratch mitts. We have some baby grows which do not have the built-in scratch mitts. There are a plain grey set and one which is stars and moons. They only cost us £2.80 for the set even if we do not use it all it is a bargain set. I know they will be more expensive in other places.

 

Another item which we have picked up was this sheep comforter. I remember Jess has a small cuddly toy from Primark and this is something which lasted a long time. She still even has it today so when I saw this in Primark I knew I had to purchase it. I might buy one or two more cuddly toys for the baby, however, that will be it. They are something you often get gifted when baby first arrives. This only cost £3 and is super soft. I am unsure if to purchase a jellycat from Jess to the baby as well. I have not fully decided that yet.

We have picked up some neutral vests as well in 0-3 months. Joe’s Nan actually purchased these for us they are long-sleeved which I am sure we are going to need when our baby is born in January time. I love the Kola print on them these can easily be used for a boy or a girl. They’re so simple yet effective these did not break the bank at £6 for 5 vests. We have had vests from Primark in the past and they wash so well. I was a little bit gutted to find that they do not have too many unisex vests in which were not completely plain. This is something which I may have to keep my eye out for.

Muslins are something else which we could not do without. I remember using them a lot when Jess was a baby when burping and cleaning her up. I knew that there were going to be something which we needed to get some of this time as well. Like I said I have been loving a lot of Disney things. We have picked up the Lion King Muslins which feel like they are super soft which is always something I look for in a Muslin. They are £4 for 3 which I think is cheap when they are actually Disney ones.

Then on another trip, we actually saw these Winnie the Pooh ones which I knew I wanted to purchase. I thought these were very unisex as well. I do not think that we are going to be purchasing many more muslins. Of course, we can always pick some more up if these get ruined when the baby is here. I think the Primark ones might be as good as some of from Mothercare and such like for a fraction of the price.

One of the first things which we picked for the baby was this Lion King blanket. It is thick but not too thick as of course, we do not know what the weather is going to be like. It is fleecy lined on the back it reminds me of one I had made for Jess. This is a like white colour with all of the main characters from Lion King. I have a feeling that this is to do with there being the film out recently. This is going to be a get blanket to use in the pram, in the cot if they do not have their sleeping bag on. For sure I know we are going to get our money’s worth out of this blanket. I wash shocked to find out that this blanket was only £6. I also love how this blanket is not too in your face as well. This would make an amazing present.

When we went shopping with Joe Grandma we saw this beautiful oatmeal popcorn Winnie the Pooh Blanket. I was actually unsure if I was going to purchase but Joe persuaded me to get it. This is super soft and thick so it is going to be great when we go for walks and on the nursery run. I think this is too pretty to actually put away I think I am going to put it on the edge of the cot until the baby is here. It is so super soft I want to cuddle it all day. This was actually £6 and something which we are going to get so much use out of. I do not think we have had any blankets form Primark before does anyone know if they last and wash well?.

We have picked up a couple of sleeping bags they are not something we had with Jess. I do not think I knew about them at the time and it is going to be a lot colder than September when the baby is born. We picked up the 2.5 tog ones due to the baby been born in the winter. This is suitable for 16-20c. Which what I think the house will be around anyway. The first sleeping bag which we picked up from Primark is this Oatmeal Winnie the Pooh one. It has Eeyore, Tigger and Pooh on it and says nice for picnics bee tree and 100-acre wood. The back has the print smaller I thought that this was super cute and of course, unisex. This feels thick and super soft. This is going to be something which we get a lot of use out of and it was £10.

The other sleeping bag which we purchased from Primark was this beautiful 101 Dalmatians sleeping bag. It says cute little pup on the front and this has a huge dalmatian on the front. On the back, it has a lot of dalmatians on they look like they have a lot of fun. Again this is super soft and thick this is something which we want. For some reason, I rarely see any of the 101 Dalmatians things and this is one of the cutest things which I have seen. This is a super unisex item which we want. Again this was £10 and is also 2.5 togs I am sure we will be back in Primark when the baby is bigger and needs more sleeping bags.

The final item which we picked up from Primark was another 101 Dalmatians set. This was £9 and it is a complete 4 set which I really liked as it matches. It is all grey and white you actually get a babygrow which says lucky little one on the front. This has all the dalmatians on it also has built-in scratch mitts which means the baby is not going to be able to take them off. I can see this been one of the babygrows which we take into the hospital when the baby is born. There is also a vest which does have a Dalmatian on the front and it looks a cheeky dog. This feels like a normal great quality Primark vest. There is a striped grey and white hat which we will be using because baby’s lose a lot of heat through their heads. There is also a matching bib which you can never have enough of.

Have you purchased much from Primark Baby if so how did you find it?

Why We Are Team Yellow

When you announce your having a baby a lot of people want to know if you are going to find out the gender. Once you get past the 20 week anomaly scan people start asking if you know the gender. I know a lot of people now find out and I would say that it has become the norm to know. There is not that many people who stay Team Yellow which means they do not know. Everything you buy is also unisex because of course you do not know if it is a girl or a boy.

Of course, now you do not even have to wait to till the 20 week scan. To see if you can find out the gender. You can pay between £60-80 to find out the gender early. I know some people who have found out from around 16 weeks. We choose to save our money an wait even if we did want to find out. Joe and I have discussed finding our because we do have some pink bits left from Jess. However, we like the idea of having a surprise when the baby arrives safely into this world.

We had our 20 week scan about a week and a half ago now anyway. This is a scan where the sonographer checks a lot of important measurements and all of the babies organs. It is highly likely that they would not have been able to tell us the gender anyway. The baby was on their side with their hands over there face this made some of the checks complicated. In fact we have to go back for another scan to complete the measurements when I am 22 weeks.

So here are some of the reasons why we have not found out the gender and we are team yellow.

We are likely to be having another c-section with this baby. There is a couple of reasons why this is the case and I will share this in a later post. This means it is likely that we are going to know the date which the baby is going to be born. Usually this would be a surprise. Since we do not have this we thought it would be nice to not know what we are having.

We know people would say congratulations no matter if we are having a boy or a girl. To us it does not matter as long as the baby arrives healthy. Plus do not have too much of a rough ride like last time  We also want to avoid people coming out with the comments. Such as oh I bet you would have loved a boy then you would have one of each. I truthfully am not bothered what gender the baby is .I would be happy with a girl and a boy or two girls. I know people think it is a boy and Jess thinks it’s a girl.

We are not that bothered about been able to buy gender specific things. As you will see if you follow us on Instagram there is so many times that Jess is in “Boys” clothes. I am in the mentality and so is Joe that if we like it we will put our children in it. Of course, we are having a winter baby. Which means the opportunity for them to have dresses on would be limited. Also, as I think this is our last baby I want to keep them in sleep suits for as long as we can. Of course, we can always purchase some gendered items when the baby does arrive if we feel the need.

Did you find out the gender of your baby or was you team yellow too?
