Hello Everyone!! You all have helped me sooo much without even knowing it. Im about to have my first and I feel like Im not doing to good. Im kinda worried that Im not prepared or will be able to be prepared for my first Son. My wife and Idon't much nor will we when he comes either. I was just curious to know what you think I should do. I dont want to seem scared because I want to be strong, for my wife and myself. We have clothes but thats about it. So any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Also there wouldnt be anyway for a possible baby shower either because were moving and we wouldnt be knowing any nor have family available for support.
p.s. I hope nobody thinks im wierd for posting on this site as a male I just really need another womans perspective on this and I cant bring up my insecurity of failing to my wife without imposing that on her. Thanks again A PROUD FATHER :)

muslin squares (i don't know what you call them out there) you can use them as a burping cloth, these are perfect for cleaning up any feeding spills as well...if any of you are having boys, some face cloth or muslin squares just to put on his little thing as soon as you take his nappy off, cause they tend to pee in your face x

So I'm still expecting but a bassinette, bouncer, and a DIAPER GENIE!!! The little bucket holds the diapers without any smell. Who can complain about that?! I have a bouncer...I've been told that a bouncer or a swing will be your best friend at times...even if it only distracts the baby for 15 mintues...its 15 minutes of sanity for you!

I have experienced that a must have for the baby is a bouncy seat that vibrates! Makes a big difference on the cranky nights.
