No matter how big your home is, it will always feel smaller after baby is born. It’s like they arrive, and then we instantly feel the need to buy so much stuff! With my first two, I admit to having a lot more things in the home for baby. This time, though, I opted for a more conservative approach and created a list on Amazon of minimalist baby essentials for those first few months.
The reduction in clutter has done wonders for my anxiety levels!
This list includes all the essentials you’ll need for baby’s growth and development in the first three months. This is completely based off of what we actually purchased for our third baby—you know, the one you
find out you’re having *cough* plan to have after you decide to give away all your baby stuff.
I especially recommend the Bright Starts lion tag toy! This thing is Jocelyn’s absolute favorite toy and has been since she was born. As a newborn, she’d stare at it and smile. Now, she snuggles with her little lion, plays with the tags, and teethes on it, of course.
I’d also highly recommend purchasing stock in Wubbanubs. We currently have 4 in our house and another at the grandparents’ house, and it is so worth it.
