There is a lot of pressure to buy every single item to prepare for your little one.
Between the extreme over do-ers and the extreme minimalists, my goal was to keep it simple but still get what is practical and useful.
I am not saying these items are bad, just not completely necessary during the newborn stage.
Here are the surprisingly UNNECESSARY baby items we found ourselves not using:
During my first pregnancy, I basically spent every waking moment researching which baby products I needed.
I was made to feel that I needed every item on every list, and without them, motherhood would be the most difficult experience of my life.
My husband was NOT into the idea of a bunch of unnecessary items filling our house, and to be honest I wasn’t either.
I knew deep down that we really didn’t need all of these items, but we definitely did need some.
The question is, which ones were the newborn essentials?!
