So, Robert and I bought our first “baby” product today, and I will say, so far, so good. We went to a consignment sale at a local elementary school and got a pack ‘n play for my office for $10. Now the baby has a place to sleep and play while at the church, which will probably be quite often. We will still need another one for the house (and to travel with).
But we still have a lot more shopping to do and it is a bit overwhelming. We ventured out to Babies ‘R Us for the first time a few weeks ago and we both broke out in hives. There are so many things out there for babies and we have no idea about what we really need and what is a waste of money.
Thanks to a good friend, we already have the Baby Bargains book, so we have started to do some research. But, what we need is the tried and true advice from all of you that have already been down this baby path. So, what do we need? What is a waste of money? What other advice do you have for us?
We need all the help we can get, so please feel free to inundate us with all of your advice! And if you have any gently used items (or equipment as they refer to it, like your baby is some kind of machine) that you are ready to part with, we would be happy to purchase them from you.
