A question posed by @Panaceia in the randoms thread got me thinking. I'm very overwhelmed with the "stuff" side of having a baby. I have only 6 onesies and nothing more. Do you have any baby steps (pun intended) to help ease into buying stuff baby will need? Any suggestions on what to buy first and what to wait on?Let's assume there will be no baby showers for us, so we'll be buying it all.
@cindler I love your question about "stuff." Newborn babies need so little "stuff." When they're inside your body all they need is warmth, nourishment and safety. When they're outside, they still need warmth, nourishment and safety - and very little else. New moms get marketed to in a ruthless way, because we don't know what we need and we're willing to do anything (spend any amount) for our babies. Most people buy way more than they ever need.Car seatSomewhere to sleep (Pack n Play, cardboard box, dresser drawer)Couple blankets and onesiesDiapersFormula or breastmilkThat will get you through the first 6 months probably! And you can figure out what else you need as you need it.
