Hiya, Where did you buy your baby furniture? (I am thinking about a cot,changing table-chest of drawers as I don't need a wardrobe). I'm wondering if this will be another example in life of you get what you pay for and is it worth to pay a bit more in the hope it will last longer? Any tips on what to look out for when looking at the furniture? I have the travel system, was also thinking I'd need a baby monitor with temp monitor on it, a bottle steriliser, a changing table for downstairs (or maybe I'll just use a changing mat?)-should I be thinking of adding anything onto the list? Thanks for your help!

I got LO's cot bed and changing unit in Mamas and Papas, waited for the sale though! 4yrs later and the cot bed is in perfect condition, going to turn it back to a cot later this year for baby. The changing unit was used for about 18 months and was great, nice height too.
