The big question

Put it away or give it away?

If you have to ask, then I'd go with put it away.

Tessa Nelson said...

I totally agree, PUT IT AWAY, don't give it away... not just yet. Maybe try for a girl:)

Hel said...

ooh.... you could loan it to me until you need again! (that's in no way an announcement, just positive thinking) ;)

change the ribbon to pink and put it away.

I'm perplexed by the same question. I don't have that complete feeling yet, but I don't have that yearning for another I've always felt either. But then, Claira came so traumatically that maybe I'm just gun shy?

I lean towards thinking the same as Sarah though. If it really is a question, hold on to it perhaps?

Ooh, put it away! :)

put it away...wait a year and rethink...then if you have to put it away again! You're young...no pressure hon!

Put it away. For now. You can always give it away later. Or, do what we did: use it as an extra hamper.

I gave all my baby stuff away after 4 boys and look where it got me. Keep it...unless you want many more boysssss!!

I say loan it to whoever needs it for however long you don't need it. Once you decide if you need it or not, then you will know what to do.

I ditto everyone else- besides, I have a feeling Steve has an opinion on the subject-especially about the pink ribbon!

Put it away! If you have room to store it you can use it for grandbabies in 15 years. :)

I'm with Kazzy (who has a kid getting married soon, so she's motivated to stock up for the grandkids!)

Kazzy's idea is great.

After our first two my husband declared (to my extreme sorrow) that we were done with kids. He kept wondering why we still had the crib and weren't getting rid of outgrown clothes. I was so overjoyed when a few years later he was glad I'd saved everything! :) Now we have our four, though and I'm thinking about giving stuff away. . .

I know it seems a long time waiting, but you have to consider GRANDBABIES!!!! I saved a lot of my favorite items and it was such a joy to pull them out and use them for my grandchildren!

4 was as bad as it got for me. Really, adding the rest was a piece of cake. People say 3, but I think it depends on how close together they are. 4 made my head spin. But after I figured out 4, the rest was easy.

Keep it for sure. I'll keep the cradle my babies used until they have babies... when they will certainly tell me what a death trap it is, then. But I couldn't bear to part with it, and I think they'd like to see it someday.

I have missed you.

Blessings, C~

Give it away! If you're not positive you're having another one, you might just be hanging onto it for no reason. If you do have another, you can always just get another one (from craigslist or freecycle).

But what a bummer of a decision.
