“Holy crap! I can’t see my toes!”
No, this isn’t another post where I talk about zombie TV shows. 🙂
It’s about time, and how it flies when you’re having fun, because Baby Girl and I are already into our twentieth week together (!). We’re halfway to the finish line, and this hit me the other day when I got out of the shower and looked down at my feet (because I can no longer see my toes over my growing tum).
I tried to paint my toes but gave up. After contorting and bending myself into an awkward pretzel position wasn’t working, I ended up getting a pedicure for the first time in ages.
For this and other reasons, Baby Girl and I need your help!
Basically, sh*t’s getting very, very real, and I have to figure what I need to have before she arrives in March — her gear for sleeping, pooping, soothing, eating, cleaning and staying warm and comfortable.
Thing is…I don’t know where to start. I’ve been researching online, but everyone recommends different things, and they recommend A LOT.
I’m talking CRAZY amounts of stuff.
I keep thinking, “Do babies actually need all this crap?” Will Baby Girl need a crib AND a bassinet AND a co-sleeper?
Some of the lists seem a little OTT to me, but what do I know?
I want to be prepared, but I don’t want everything and the kitchen sink. I’d rather go the minimalist route, and my condo already feels like it’s bursting at the seams.
That’s where we could use your help.
If you have a few minutes to spare, I could sure use a list (you know I love lists) of your recommendations for the absolute essentials that a new mom needs. Even just your top 10 things would be incredibly helpful.
Otherwise, the only things this child will have waiting for her in March will be cute outfits and shoes, because have you SEEN baby shoes lately!?
Absolutely adorable. I wanted to get her a pair of motorcycle boots and knockoff Uggs from Babies ‘R’ Us the other day, and El Hub was like, “No, she won’t need tiny Timberlands.”
Thank you very much in advance.
Your friendly neighborhood beauty addicts,
Karen and Baby Girl
