I’ve been getting everything together for babe #3. I feel really proud of myself this time around, because I actually feel on top of things. I’m usually scrambling at the end to prep for a new human (or hem, rather, the child impolitely decides to show up weeks early before I have anything ready), but NOT THIS TIME, BABY. Not this time.
Don’t get too sure of yourself, Cams. You still need to clean your gross house, pack your hospital bag…and maybe prepare yourself emotionally for three kids (ha). Oh, right. That. Eh.
I recently put together a Gift Guide for the New Mom, so I thought it only made sense to follow-up with a round-up of things you can use for baby during those early, newborn days. Basically, these are the things that I have found to actually be useful. Not an expert here, but having had two babes…I have simply kept mental notes over the past four years – and I will now pass them on to you. You know, mama solidarity and all of that shizz.
There really isn’t that much to this list either…because yeh. As most of us know already, newborns only do a few things – eat, sleep, poop, repeat. I didn’t really understand that before we had our first, so I had all of this STUFF cluttering up the house. I soon realized after our daughter was born that I only used…oh…maybe a few of them on a very regular basis.
So. Let’s get all kinds of minimalistic on this baby shyat.
