Congrats mother to be!
A good tip for your shower – don’t register for specific clothes because people will buy you clothes weather you have them on your list or not…women LOVE buying baby clothes…
If you have a relative that likes to sew or if you do – I had an aunt that made me tons of burp clothes and anything home made just seems a little more specical…to me anyways 🙂
We got an awesome baby soother/night light located at most targets, walmarts, babies r us
Beg, borrow, steal a crib..they are so spendy to only be using for 2 years at most for a kid..
If you have a Costco – I find that they have the best wipes..the huggies or pampers etc..that have the hard plastic containers only work well when its completely full otherwise you always have to open it up and dig in for the wipes..
I skipped getting a bassinett and I got a pack n play and it comes with a top layer that when the baby is light weight they can just lay in it and thats what I used for a couple weeks after the birth..I would buy them new…you can’t wash the covers.
I bought flash cards or different shapes, colors, objects, letters and it was so much cheaper than buying books brand new…
This was one of the best baby toys I got..helps them walk and also to just sit in there because my kid HATED tummy time..
I could never figure out how to swaddle my child, but at the hospital the nurses are pretty good at showing you how to do it with a normal baby blanket that may be cheaper than actually buying swaddles..
Some people get mittens for their baby to prevent them from scratching..but you can put socks on them as well..
baby bath tub – as soon as they can sit up fairly well (around 5 months I think) then you can put them in the tub so I wouldn’t buy a real spendy one.
I’m not sure if you’re having a boy or girl but there are reviews from people that say certain diapers work better for either sex…
baby bottles, extra nipples (the holes come in different sizes too) baby spoons,
I’ll stop now before I get too overwhelming for you 🙂
