Well I'm a ftm, I'm lucky enough to own my own Home and have an actually nursery (although its not necessary) so I went a little overboard. But I would say all you really need as far as furniture right now is a bassinet/crib that will go in your room for baby to sleep, and something for his/her clothes, and maybe some type of storage bins for lotions,diapers,blankets, all the extra baby stuff.... hope that helps
I got a crib and dressers and everything with my daughter and never even used it!
I recommend a bassinet/or PAC n play just up the babies clothes in your closet
I would say either or a crib or a pack n play and something to store clothes. You dont need a changing table you can do that anywhere that's flat. Maybe also a basket to keep all the changing stuff in so you can move it around with you. A bouncer or swing is convenient but not necessary
Crib. Dresser. Rocking chair. Those are a must for me
I'd say if you don't plan on moving soon go for a crib instead of a bassinet, because your little one will grow out of the bassinet within a couple of months. Then I would say get a swing/bouncer or a combo spacesaver one like I did(trust me when I say you'll need it when the want time to yourself, shower, cooking, etc.) As for bureau's you can always get a small one or if you have space in yours or your closet baby clothes can go there. Burlington Coat factory had the swing/bouncer combo for 139.99 and they sometimes have their display furniture on sale. I got a changing table that was the last the store had for 44.98 when it was originally $169.99 just because it had a small nick on ot's leg(which I filled in with a furniture marker and you can't tell its there) Hope this helps. Good luck!
I'm in a tiny place too, my must have was the crib with dresser and changing table and shelf all built in so it's one piece instead of three or more... Luckily I looked soon enough and find this $600+ for only $65!!!! Craigslist can be awesome just make sure everything's clean!!!
I lived at a studio n we bought the playpin that has a changing table u can find it at target for around $100 we used it until our baby was 11 months then we got her a toddler bed.
I have a 2 bed house with 3 kids & 1 on the way lol id say a cot either wiv a draw under or just buy 1 of thos cheap plastic ones on wheels to store bedding babys towels blankets etc under ur cot. U can get a 'cot tidy' its fabric & hangs on the cot bars & it has pockets big enough to store things u need quickly like bibs &muzzies & I do love my draws with change table on top! It has 4 deep draws & u can keep all ur babys change stuff right there I also use this in the morns to top & tail wash my lil one. any clothes that need hanging go in a space in my wardrobe! Defo need a bouncey chair to my lil girl is 6 months & I still use it wen im busy & to feed her! Thas all u wud need :-)
We had a roommate but since we got 5 months pregnant he moved out! Now we are looking at sets or bundles of stroller, car seat, pack& play and high chair if possible. We found one online for under $200 at www.walmart.com. we are waiting awhile longer before deciding.
