The idea for this post came when I realized that I could have really used a post like this. As a new mom, you Google EVERYTHING. Every mom is different, just like every baby is different so some of these items might not be useful for you. As Ava will be 9 weeks on Friday, we have already purchased and exchanged a dozen items we purchased for her, so I figured I would share what works best for us. These are really just items we have used her first two months, so it won’t necessarily cover things like spoons and sippy cups. Lastly, this is also purely opinion!
I can already hear the responses, “Hang in there! She will come when she’s ready,” “The average first pregnancy last 41+ weeks,” “She will be here before you know it,” “You’re only 38 weeks; the longer she’s in there the better off she’ll be.”
I get this. I do. I just want to hear, “Katelyn, you are having a baby right now!”
