You know, before you have a baby, you have no idea what you are gonna need. Do I really need a pack of 192 diapers? (YES.) Do I really need a pair of suede booties? (NO.) So I've compiled a list of what I've found indispensable for a new baby in your life. Granted - these are things I've
found necessary, some are expensive, but luckily we had three baby showers and everything was bought for us by generous friends and family. If you can get them - DO IT. I'm telling you, it will make your life a hell of a lot easier....
. The Boppy
If you're going to breastfeed, nothing is better, i'm telling you. It makes it so much easier.
. The Diaper Genie
It keeps the smelly poops all tied up.
. a pack of cloth diapers
We use these for burp cloths, clean ups, and everything.
. The baby BJORN
- or some kind of sling
This is great because if you have a baby like mine, that HATES to be put down, you can wear this and do chores. Even your husband can wear it and still feel manly...
. a bouncer
Heavy duty rocking really knocks a kid out. It also helps relieve you of having to do it yourself. This aquarium one is the bomb cause it lights up and makes sounds and the kid can make it run just by kicking it himself!
. the Medela breast pump
If you're on the go, or just sick of breast feeding, the Medela is the best. The carrier comes with everything you need. Plus it's great to pump so that your husband can feed the baby while you finally get some rest...
. Curity breast pads
Again, if you are breastfeeding, Curity is the ONLY brand to buy cause all the rest, HURT. Sorry, it's the truth. Speaking of pain, if you are "sore" - Purelan
is the only thing to cure it. 'Nough said.
. A stroller, carseat
We did a ton of research on this and we liked this one best cause it can be used as a carseat, clipped into the the base and then you can clip it into the stroller with one smooth move. This is the best idea ever because the last thing you want to do is wake a sleeping baby. Plus this one is good cause when you fold it up - the foodtray folds UPWARD - it doesn't touch the disgusting ground, like most of the others do. That will definitely help when you have a toddler using the food tray for cheerios...
Sure, some of these things are expensive, but I am telling you from experience, they are worth the money. Or if you're not having a baby, but having a friend who is, do them a favor and buy them some of these things. You will be revered and loved forever.
