Quoting Kailyn's Mama:" I decided not to get a wipes warmer and one was given to me - I still dont intend on using it. I think ... [snip!] ... Save the money, hold the wipe in your hand for a few seconds to warm it up before wiping baby with it. Just my opinion though."

I would have to agree with this. I live in WI and the winter changes in the car are a pain and that was the only way to warm them was in my hand.

Quoting ASHLEy;):" Everyone keeps telling me that I need TONS of diapers."

yes you do! Maybe a pack or 2 of newborn and allot of size 1's Sams Club/ Costco is great if your buying disposable as well as wipes you go through those faster than you would hope for because they can be quick to use when cleaning a spit up if your on the go.

Cosleeping for sure! Dr. Sears has posted about research showing that sleeping with your baby in a sober and safe state and safe bed helps regulate and match their breathing to yours, reduce SIDS, and you don't have to really wake up or do much to feed.

Spanking is detrimental to development and health. It only means a person is too inept in finding a better way to teach their children then hurting them. It teaches that hurting someone is acceptable, and that you only have power and should be respected because of fear, rather than real respect. Saying no is fine, just give an explanation so they know WHY you're saying no, and they can learn.

My daughter had a Womb bear Oh my goodness that thing was amazing! It made the same sounds that the baby hears inside your tummy. That's the only way she could sleep.

Just make sure you look at the reviews if you get one. I think they are unnecessary but many people really like them since they help late night diaper changes more comfortable. Many have been recalled for fire dangers and burns so just check them out if you must have one

I found one of these at Goodwill and was super excited about the price- $40.00!! It was practically brand new. I am so glad I came across this great deal b/c I am also very nervous about the whole SIDs and such.

One thing not mentioned, as my sister told me. SLEEP NOW!.lol..
Well, I started to buy onesies and as much unisex clothes I can find since I'm due in january. No one ever thinks about the time they are due in terms of clothing. I'm really nervous and scared to death. I wake up, panicking. I'm like "oh my gosh, I'm someone's mother". My child's father says: go back to sleep, u are gonna be waking up like that for years get used to it. Lol...



Diapers and clothes. Stock up. Especially. On the onesies.

I'd say the necessities of course :) but also: I got this vibrating, rocking swing that my sissy said was a life saver. Bottle warmers definitely. Nooks. Breast pads (definitely not a good idea to have a soaked shirt when walking around during the day) LOTS OF DIAPERS AND WIPES!!
