I've had many people ask me what we still need for the baby. I'm always at a loss for words when they ask because honestly, I don't know. We have everything we need in order to bring her home: car seat, diapers, bassinet, and clothes. To me these are necessities, well not the bassinet, but you need something for the baby to sleep in and for now that is what we choose to use. It seems that anything else is really an "extra"
We have many "extras" but there are some other "extras" that I wouldn't mind getting. My problem is how do you know if what you buy will be worth it or not? I hate buying something and then not using it. My friend Andrea got me thinking about some of these "extras" the main one being a sheepskin. I've never heard of it till I read Andrea's post and now I'm seriously considering getting one for the baby. Here are a few other things that I've been thinking about getting a swaddler blanket although I heard about this miracle blanket that might work better. Some sort of wrap or sling, a pack'n'play, and maybe a sound machine. We also need to get a high chair. I don't really know where to start. With only 2 weeks left in the pregnancy I guess I'm feeling a little overwhelmed when it comes to what else we'll need. If you have any advice on what worked for you or what didn't let me know!
