Lisa and I often find ourselves saying this on outings when we find basically anything that looks cool. However, I think the baby probably doesn't need everything I see. So I thought I would do a copy cat (meow) of a post my friend Nancy made a little bit ago to get some advice about what my baby girl does actually need. Or what I'll need for the baby. I'll start by making a general list of some things we already have (that we either bought/ were given/ or are on loan from my sister) and then please make comments telling me what else I should get (or what you would recommend I get more of) and what brands you love best and all of those kinds of great things. Also, if there are things you would recommend steering clear from, please let me know about those things too. Thanks everyone.
Here's a list of some things we already have:
-crib & mattress
-some clothes in varying sizes
-a few diapers and wipes
-lots of blankets
-a couple of crib sheets
-lots of stuffed animals
-bottles (just in case)
-a Snugly (maybe it's not that brand, but it's that kind of thing)
-lots of baby shampoo, lotion, etc.
-a few infant toys
-shopping cart cover thing
-window shade things for the car
I know one of the things we still NEED to get is a car seat. I have one in mind, but I would really love to hear your opinions and preferences about car seats. So please tell me lots about that.
Also, as a last note, let me just say that if you don't have kids yet, but you still have something great to tell me about baby things, please don't feel bullied out. Tell me all the helpful things you have to say!
