It would be so enjoyable to read all the hilarious stuff if I weren’t wincing all the time, because there tend to be at least two disgusting words in every sentence. Do the authors talk this way in front of their babies and small children, too?
Please consider cutting out the crassness and foul language. You can laugh about being a parent without that stuff. It’s not classy, and it’s not funny.

I don’t know if you were kidding about the cloth diapers, but just in case… you know you’re not supposed to put the poop in the washing machine, correct? You rinse in toilet b/f putting in diaper pail, then do washing.

I don’t buy baby clothes until baby hits 3rd month. I have a few pairs from my sister.

I wouldn’t think that I’m spoiling the baby as much as I’m making them a little more less whiney so I can get through one more freaking diaper change without wanting to pull my hair out.

However, what you may find useful is highly variant based on many factors, not the least of which is your baby. Some mom would say to them a swing was essential. My first child would scream like he was on fire every time I tried it. Not useful…and big, and pricey. Thankfully the two following babes made that a much less wasteful purchase. ;) Baby 1 LOVED a baby carrier/sling/wrap…you name it. Baby 2 acted like he was in a straight jacket set on fire. Again, NOT useful for him (and sooo disappointing since I needed the extra hands now with two kiddos. I could go on all day. I LOVE our Bumbo. I never thought it was going to help my baby set. I sat on the floor and fed them in it a lot. ALL smooth, no buckles or crevices for disgusting things to get stuck in. Wonderful. I adore the baby bathtub. I put it in the tub with me. I would put appropriate water temp for baby in in the baby tub and hot water in my tub and we could bathe together at temps we both enjoyed. Now with 3 kids, I stick baby in there inside the older kids bath & it keeps her area separate while she feels part of what is going on. Also the boys are filthy, I don’t want her in their water…lol I also directly cobathed a lot with each of my kids as tiny ones.

I’ve never owned a bedding set for a baby, so I get you there. I do love baby shoes though. I know they often don’t or won’t go on or stay on, but some do. When they do, I try to get a picture in them and save those & hang them on the tree each year as a keepsake ornament. They are by no means a must & I generally had booties to keep their feet toasty instead,

I do love a wipes warmer. I cloth diaper & EVERYONE steals the warm wet cloth wipes, even Dh. They are wonderful for sticky faces and everything else. We live where there is winter though and I’ve had all winter babies so it’s nice not to have icey wiping at 2am and wake everyone right up. I would add my best investment is a small portable washing machine right next to my changing table. Diapers and wipes go straight in & when full I run it & then I wash a load of her clothing after. It is the perfect size for that and it keeps her clothes looking great as it’s more gentle than a full size. I am astounded by how her clothing has no wash wear compared to my older ones clothing, which I had found it sooner. I wash my delicates in it now too. LOL

These lil slip on shoes, if you don’t lose one, are amazing and can be worn for 6 to 8 months before being out grown. Quality material, cheaper than the baby shoes that don’t fit, totally reveal an experienced mom behind the babe….bought mine on Amazon- never left the house because who can navigate a mall w 5 kids anyway?? Or big pregnant w#5 as the other 4 are running amok. Plus, living in podunk, our mall wouldn’t have these amazing leather moccasins, even if I did have the time to shop. I bought 3 sizes, so baby #5 now won’t out grow them until she’s walking good and ready for shoes anyway. They match everything. And if they don’t, who cares?

Second, baby wipe warmer. Had one for first born, 13 years ago. It about caught fire, burned itself…decided to chuck it along w the baby monitor (monitor was picking up alien voices and freaked us out).

Happy parenting. :-) :-)
