The excitement :o0

First and foremost... Congratulations! :stork: Secondly, I do think that is good value One thing though.... Mothercare have regular sales, and I have seen sterilizers and bottles down to half price (I got mine in a sale). i can't remember what half price equates to, or if it would be better value than what you saw in your chemist. But there will be bargains to be had on everything you need over the coming months, you just need to watch for them. If you watch things closely enough throughout your pregnancy, you should never really have to pay full price for anything!

Which size bottles were they? In realtion to the steriliser as OP said Mothercare regularly do half prices sales. So do Boots and Smyths. I got the Tommee Tippee steriliser last year in Boots for €25.

I dont know what size they were, the pack just said new born starter pack I think, should I be looking for particular sizes?? O only you said that now I wouldn't have a clue. I just looked at an old post I put up and seen where I had seen the advent microwave steriliser for 20e in tk maxx, had completely forgotten about that, must see if they still have it! Sur that would be the bottles and steriliser for €35! :wv

If it's new born it's probably the small 4oz bottles. You will prob use them for the first few months alright. The sterilsers like others have said can be got for about 20 euro. Microwave ones seem to be the business ;-) Oh the excitement is right!!! :stork: :stork:
