My friend is due very soon with her first baby, and when she recently shrieked, “We don’t have anything for the baby yet!” I told her not to worry.
I was in the same position not too long ago, and what I learned is, there’s no need to stockpile before the baby comes, or you’ll end up with several items you never use.
The four items you actually need are:
1. Car seat
3. Swaddle blanket
4. Newborn bodysuits
That’s it. You can figure out the rest as they grow.
