things to buy

What kind of things do I have to have by the time baby is here?  I'm talking necessity. I don't think I have a lot of things for her and I'm freakin' but I want to make sure I'm prepared.

  • also you need cotton puffs and rubbing alcohol for the umbilical cord stump. This time around I am getting those sterilized alcohol wipes instead.

    You don't NEED these 2 things. Most people will not be using alcohol on the stumps these days due to updated research and doctor recommendations.

    To just leave it alone, keep it clean and dry. Gently wipe it when you're giving sponge baths and what not, but it will fall off when it is supposed to fall off. Alcohol will just unnecessarily dry it out.

    Different pedis recommend different things, as with anything else, but I know that these days that is the recommended treatment, and is what they teach in medical school.
