My Baby Shopping List

By Jennifer (Double Duty Mommy) at 10:25 PM
Getting ready for Kendall has been an experience. I know it's weird but I feel like I don't know anything anymore and I was [almost] completely clueless on what I actually needed for Kendall once she's here. I mean, c'mon, it's been pretty much 6 years since I've had to worry about buying anything for a baby like this.

Like I said in my Prego Planner review/giveaway they have a checklist of baby needs and even though I'm using it, I wanted to make a post about my checklist. I can just come on here and mark off what we already have. Maybe now I'll be more organized? Who knows.
The checklist kinda overwhelmed me but once I saw we had almost every thing we need for her first few months of life I am now more excited. I felt like we still needed everything in the world but I was wrong.

So is there anything I'm leaving off that we ABSOLUTELY need???

this sounds great. I never had a sleep positioner for Becca...I just rolled up towels on each side of her and they worked perfectly.
I'm sure it will all come back to you once your baby is here, you'll figure it out as you go along :) What a prepared little planner you are...reminds me of myself :) I had lists galore! :)

Soothies makes these breast pads that are amazing for the first couple of weeks if you nurse. Also, just a tip, give baby the gas drops before every feeding. It keeps the bubbles smaller so they don't hurt so bad when they get into their gut. The drops don't effect anything other than the stomach and gut, so it's perfectly healthy to give it to them all the time. I got this hint from my cousin and it's worked miracles for Oz's gas issues!!
