Crap we still need, according to me: I am starting to worry about money, just made a huge amazon order with a gift card and the completion discount. I hope maybe some saner people than me or experienced mamas can step in and eliminate some of this for me:
-baby socks (we have two pair. it's hot, so I assume he'll wear a onesie a lot and need socks, more than two pair i don't know. i do have some gowns and footed sleepers)
-side-snap t-shirts (for early days when we don't want to pull a onesie over his head...people say very very useful ? )
-waterproof king pillow protector(s) for cosleeper mattress (I think this is pretty non negotiable, we have an older model and the mattress isn't waterproof)
-cloth diapers for burp cloths (we have three of those silly little carters ones, four flannel receiving blankets, and will eventually have 7 muslin blankets, and we have two ikea burp cloths we just bought. i just don't get how many of these things are truly multipurpose and how many we will need. Also I just ordered a bunch of large terry bibs, maybe I can just use those? )
-newborn/size 1 diapers
-baby wash/soap of some kind
-disposable breast pads
-small step trash can for diapers
-extra tub of coconut oil for baby
I haven't bought any "baby medicine" type stuff, I assume that is best purchased as needed?
We still don't have our breast pump either but our friends have told us they are buying it for us (Thank goodness). I'll be going back to work at 8 weeks and I know it can be useful before then, too.
I am just sort of having a lot of anxiety about STUFF that is just a cover up for my anxiety about the entire situation! I just wish I could fast forward about seven weeks and be sitting in the nursery rocking my baby and have gotten through all the crazy out of control birth/first few days stuff. Sometimes I almost feel like that day will never come or I will be a completely different person by then.
