With Black Friday and Christmas sales starting to pop up, I’m scrambling to purchase the last baby items on my list. We recently received a gift card from friends with the inscription, “Baby’s almost here, and you’re going to need lots of gear.” That couldn’t be more accurate! For someone so small, he sure does require a lot of stuff.
I’m a bit of a minimalist, so before I purchase anything or add it to my gift registry, I always ask myself if I really, truly need it. Sometimes the answer is no, but more often than not, it’s yes. Raising a baby would be pretty difficult without clothing, diapers, wipes, pacifiers, a car seat, a stroller, blankets, burp cloths, a crib, some type of diaper bag…and the list goes on. But there’s also a long list of “not complete necessities but they sure do make life easier” items.
As Mr. Handsome and I prepare for our baby boy, we want to make sure we have what we need. Whether you’re a parent or just someone who has been around babies, what are some items that you recommend we purchase? They can be absolute necessities or just things that will make our life easier. Ready, Set, Go!
