Hi everyone, welcome back to my blog. Today’s topic will circle around what I have gotten for William so far. It seems like I have it all purchased and ready to set up and then I realize I am missing something. There are things on this list that I probably over did and most likely will not use, although I really tried my best to purchase things slowly and efficiently, in other words, I did not let my excitement get the worst of me. Shopping for babies can either go very light or very HEAVY (empty bank account heavy) there is no middle. Why? because everything small is just so darn cute! Let’s get started, I am going to list all the items below and then provide some pictures of the exact ones I got. Hope you enjoy, sit down, relax, and read.

The list provided are just the items at the top of my head. I had help with deciding on the brands and some of the items I purchased from moms just so I don’t make any irrational decisions. I went with not just the looks/brands of things but also the comfort of both my baby and I. I think when it comes to a child the items need to be useful and not so much towards how pretty it could look in pictures. I still did my best to have a theme and purchase the best but only for comfort and non else. I have my GO-TO mom (Lucy) that always gives me the right advice and in my eyes she is a very special and highly trained mommy (she sounds like an FBI agent when I put it that way). I tend to go towards new moms meaning younger ones in regards to purchasing or handing kids as apposed to my mom or anyone within her age and older with some aspects just because they raised us at a different and difficult time. With the new moms, I think they are more aware and immune of the do’s and don’ts of now days, so that would be my first advice. I would get some comments on my diet from older women, such as “we ate raw meat, we ate all types of fish, we ate this and that” but what they don’t understand or are being grumpy to understand is times have changed and healthcare has progressed a tremendous amount so what they thought was okay back in the days is definitely not okay now. Sometimes it is hard to hear that and not say anything back, but remember one thing, no one will care for your baby’s well being as much as you (the mother). Do as you feel comfortable and ignore the rest. Advice given isn’t required to be put in action.
Hopefully you guys enjoyed this list and it could be helpful to you expecting  mothers. If you have any suggestions to baby items please comment below, I would love to hear what other moms and moms-to-be are using.
Have a nice read,
Love Vivi

  1. You are so right regarding people’s opinion of doing they way. Times changed and do the way you know it’s best for you and your child. Love all items so fare you picked.
