This pregnancy seems to be just flying by. I’m already 16 weeks! I guess we’ve just been so busy I haven’t really had time to sit and think about how far away August is.
But, we’re starting to get cracking on our goals to get done before Baby B makes his/her appearance. The main one? All the stuff we’ll need…this is our first baby after all.
We’re kind of minimalists when it comes to baby goods. We don’t think babies need tons of flashy toys or gadgets. But our baby’s got to wear something and sleep somewhere! So, here are the lists of things we’ll
need and want so far:
-Crib and mattress
-Bedding and blankets
-Rocker or glider
-Clothes and supplies
-Some kind of carrier or Moby Wrap
-A baby gate
-A few bottles and a pump (for the days when I need to be away from our baby briefly)
-Baby bath (this really is almost a need…I’m not comfortable washing our newborn in the kitchen sink!)
Some things we might want but don’t really “have-to-have”:
-Bouncer or walker
-Extra toys (I’m sure we’ll get plenty from friends/family, and we’re not into electronic gadgets)
Besides my sister (who just had twins in November), I’m the first to have a baby in a while, so I’m definitely “feeling in the dark” somewhat. Any advice would be gladly taken! What are some of the things you use/don’t use? What do you recommend for different types of baby car seats, carriers, etc?
