Well, that's because it is.
Today's post is about two different things and I am actually in need of YOUR help this time!
1. Those last minute items you just don't even think about
2. Those items that I would love to know if they are worth it or not? Did you find it useful or wasteful?
Since being home in Idaho, I have attended a friends baby shower and have been to the store several times with my mother gathering last minute items that I need. Aaaaaaaand to be honest, there were so many items, that I included in today's post, that I hadn't even thought about getting quite yet.
So because I found this so helpful, I wanted to share what I learned.
However, I would also love your help with a few items that I am debating about getting.
So let's get started!!!
Those Last minute items you don't even think about getting
It's so funny you don't think of getting these, but it's true! Babies nails grow quick and you don't want them scratching their little precious faces.
Something I learned last night is how useful Gas Drops will be. Some mothers were saying they gave their babies these drops before or after every meal! Anything to help, right!!
Diaper Rash Cream
Again.. eventually I would have thought of getting this. But I am grateful my mother was helping me notice things I should get now, rather than stressing about going to the store after having a newborn.
Baby Laundry Detergent
I never knew, until a few months ago, that they even made detergent for babies! Can't wait until I get home to start washing all those clothes, towels, blankets and more!
Hair Brush or Comb
And again... I would have never thought about this until I needed it. But those babies who get cradle cap. This will become a must!
I hear this cleans those blow out stains like a champ!!!! Soak the clothing in deluded Oxi Clean and soak overnight before washing!
I have also heard of spraying clothing with stain remover and leaving it out in the sun to dry. Something I will sure being trying as well.
Have you tried this method? What products do you feel gets stains out the best?
Diaper Disposable Bags
So genius! I love that I can store these around the house, If i'm too lazy to run it outside and don't want the house to stink. Or always keep one in my diaper bag for those places that you just don't have a garbage to throw away the diaper right away!!
Extra Changing Pad Covers
I'm sure if you bought a changing pad you also bought a changing pad cover to go with it. But you'll love having extra on hand especially for those little messes they make!! You could also get these, something I am also considering!
One of the first things I purchased after I got my stroller. I just know that when I will be out and about shopping this hook will become a life saver!
Did you love it? Did you use it?
Let me know if you bought this item and found it useful? Or vise versa. Was it a waste of money and space?
I love the idea behind a wipe warmer.. but don't know if it is something you would actually use? or is it so nice not having to put cold wipes on that tiny bum :)
Infant Carseat Head Support
I have the Nuna infant carseat and wonder if this is something I would need to invest in????????
Is it a necessity??
I have had some people tell me they love this? and others say they never used it, or even some who didn't like it!
So I would love to know what you loved about it? or what you didn't like about it!
I plan on breast feeding most of the time, but I do know I will occasionally pump and need bottles. Was a Boon Grass convenient?
What are the pros and cons to a Food Processor. Is this something you will use and love if you have the time and energy to make food? Or is it something that is just a preference because you are trying to save money????
I actually have this stroller caddy in black and wonder if it is useful or just in the way? I will have my diaper bag and I also have a cup holder attachment that is separate. What stroller caddy did you love?
Again, I would love any input on any of this information, or basically anything that you found to be very helpful or useful?
Or even those things that you thought you HAD to have, but maybe found you didn't use it as much as you thought you would!
Being a First time mama here, I am down to only 5 weeks and I just want to make sure I am prepared as much as I can be!
Thank you all so much!
