Are you wondering what to buy when you’re expecting your first baby? Are you looking for the best baby gear?
Whether you are currently pregnant or if you are a new parent, there are so many things to think about and research.
Marlowe, my first child, was born less than one year ago, and I am constantly researching questions about the best baby gear.
When I was pregnant, it felt like all I did was look up the top things a baby needs.
I remember looking up everything from what the best strollers were to what I could do financially to best prepare for a baby. There are so many companies to buy the best baby items from, and everyone has an opinion on what’s best.
Because I was so overwhelmed in the beginning, I decided to put together a blog post that outlines must-have baby items for first-time moms, plus the best baby gear whether it’s your first or 5th child!
My hope is that I can answer many of your questions, so you don’t have to spend nearly as much time researching things as I did.
And, I definitely think this will be helpful because I have been writing, researching, and gathering information for this article ever since I found out I was pregnant. I quickly realized that there wasn’t one easy-to-read guide for new parents, and that’s where this article comes in.
The areas we will talk about in this best baby gear guide include:
- Pregnancy, birthing, and new parent courses
- All about different baby registries
- How to get a free baby box
- Pregnancy and new mom gear
- Best baby gear
- Baby bath and diapering essentials
- Baby sleep essentials
- Breastfeeding gear
- Baby clothing
- What you need to financially prepare for a baby
- How to take maternity leave when self-employed
Now, you definitely do not need everything on this list.
Babies don’t really need much other than food, sleep, and some clothing items. So, no matter your budget, please remember that your baby will be happy and healthy! Also, for every expensive baby item, there are also great budget-friendly baby items as well! [Read more…]
