Oh boy- You’ve just lit a fire under me!  I haven’t thought about any of this stuff yet!  I’m looking forward to what others have to add.

The one thing we’ve been working on is figuring out which products we’ll be using.

We’ve picked our stroller- BOB revolution

Car seat- Britax Chaperone

Diapers- cloth (Mr. DG is totally into this!)

and are continuing to research baby carriers (Ergo) etc.

Just doing this research is burdensome as we are having to read consumer reports, various reviews, research prices etc.  I feel like the skills I have from wedding planning are particularly well-suited to this task!

Wow, thanks for this post, I didn’t know we were getting a baby board! I feel like I haven’t really done much of anything… hubs and I just yesterday started cleaning out the man pit which in a few short months will become the baby’s room… guess it really is time to start thinking about what we’re really going to need.

If you’re planning on BF, I hear the BF classes are useful as well. I’m taking the class in a few weeks so I can let you know how helpful it is. I would also add “look for a pediatrician” to the list. Doctors recommend you have one picked out before you go into labor =)

I’m not pregnant but did tons of research for my brothers when my SILs were pregnant.

I can’t praise this product enough. BOPPYs!!!!

It’s actually a product to “prop” up the baby when s/he are old enough so they don’t roll around. But your lower back will love you and ti’s great to use as a ring around your waist to prop your arms up when bottle feeding. 🙂

Don’t forget to research soy milk or hypoallergenic products too so you’re not scrambling if your baby has allergies. TONS do. All of my niece and nephews were not able to drink regular formula.

Oooh, I wrote something on how to pick a pediatrician… I’ll try to find it and post it!
