I'm calling this my baby WISH list, because over the past two years, I've learned that a lot of needs are really wants... if you think long and hard and creatively about it. A lot of items sold now-a-days make caring for a baby easier, and us new(er) moms wonder how moms before us lived with out all of the doohickeys and whatya macallits... But then again, they sell things like this. When in the heck do you use THAT? and Gross. It was never that big of a problem- cover it with a diaper people.
Any how- my wish list, yeah, that's where this was headed...
a changing pad
a changing pad cover- off white, light green... pink?
a car seat protection mat
a night light- any kind at all, even maybe one for the big brother so the one in his room isn't so 'baby'.
a baby bath tub- we borrowed one of theses before and it sure does come in handy when washing a little squirmy slippery thing... wonder if the person we borrowed ours from still has theirs...
a laundry basket- I really like this kind- because you know, little people make a lot of messes. Man- I'm looking forward to those blow out sipaers- let me tell ya...
Also- these patterns are ADORABLE
and goodness, how quiclky one can forget... it's always good to have infant medicnes on hand for those middle of the night fever/ sickness outbursts, I imagine even more so when you want to stop any fits quiclky before the baby wakes up the toddler...
diapers are always good- I think I have my eye on some of these this time too, though I know me and I'd have to go all or nothing, I think... maybe not.
Erik and I are also researching sit n stand strollers, though we haven't quite decided exactly which brand and style are for us.
and man oh man- we'd be lovin' a DOULA... which we're also in the process of searching out... or, well, we will be soon.
I should add that I'm totally cool with used stuff too- it's environmentally friendly- and we all need some of that these days!! :)
