Having only bought ourselves a new king-size bed last weekend, today we turned our attentions to Baby's retail needs.
Actually, I'd only realised 2 or 3 days ago that the rented car capsule she's been using, is due to be returned on Tuesday. So we urgently had to buy her a new car seat. And since it's quite hard trying to spoon pureed apple into Baby's mouth when she's half-reclining in her infant rocker and playing with the baubles hanging off the toy bar, a high chair was next on the list.
What you're supposed to do is go to at least a couple of specialist baby shops, look at every model and compare prices; maybe even try to get a discount for buying both items at the same shop. But due to Baby's ultra-short awake times (she was due for a feed and a nap within the hour), that didn't exactly happen.
It was more a case of making a beeline for the most visually attractive model, quickly trying Baby in it and checking that it wasn't the cheapest one in the shop (assuming that you get what you pay for - as it turned out we bought the second most expensive of each item) and snapping it up before the shop assistant even had time to talk us into the most expensive models.
Oh, and we also got a pair of really cute, hot pink infant sunglasses.
