It's so hard to stay organized while you are pregnant and the amount of things a newborn baby needs is completely overwhelming. Not only that but apparently a side effect of being pregnant is that you completely forget everything. I honestly find myself having to write things down instead of depending on my amazing memory. Very craptastic for me!
So Future Momma put together a list of things she needs, thinks she'll need, knows she doesn't need, or already has. I figured I'd do this as well to track my progress!
Waterproof crib liner
Fitted sheets (2-3)
Receiving blankets (4-5)
Changing pad covers
Milk storage bags
Travel formula dispenser
gas relief drops
Tub toy pouch
Hooded towels (2-4)
Toys and More
Books and Music
Diapers (disposable or cloth)-- Too early to buy because baby might be allergic
Travel pack for wipes
Diaper bag (Afraid to cross this off because I THINK I found my dream bag!)
Diaper pail and refills
Diaper sacks for travel
Disposable changing pads
Baby laundry detergent
Baby clothes hangers
Health -- All items removed came in a kit that was purchased from my registry
Baby fever reducer
Carbon monoxide detector
Car seat base for 2nd car
Stroller rain shield
Infant car mirror
Pack and play
Birth announcements - Already have a designer in mind
Thank you cards - see above
OPTIONAL STUFF I'D LIKE
Baby sling - Still debating on if I'm a baby wearer or not
So far it looks like I have a lot crossed off my list. Other things that aren't crossed off are on my registry but only like 5 people know of my registry so it's not shocking that a lot of things haven't been bought. My mom goes nuts everytime she goes out shopping she has to pick something up for Demi.
Demi already has mounds and mounds of clothes just waiting for the nursery to be put together, washed, dried, and put away. I already have my bag for the hospital (obviously not packed yet)and I'm waiting to find my perfect dream diaper bag. Demi and Mommy are going to be styling the entire way!
So what do you guys think of my progress? What do you guys think of my registry? Too much? Not enough? Useless things on there or not?
I know that people don't recommend wipe warmers but its something that I want for Demi so damnit I'll get it for her! I have a bunch of little things on the registry because between my mom, sister, sister in law, best friend, and best friends mom/sister, all the large "Bulk" items have already been purchased. My parents bought the entire nursery for me (crib, crib mattress, bedding set, changing table, dresser, night stand, bassinet, and glider). My best friends mom and sister have bought me the bouncer, the high chair, the play pen, a bathtime set, some bottles etc! My sister in law got me a boat load of clothes (that she won't let me see) and Demi's stage two car chair (infant over 20lbs). My sister hasn't bought it yet but shes getting me the travel system which is the stroller and car seat. Nicole (best friend) has bought me a bunch of clothes (she also won't let me see) and some random small things for Demi.
So yeah, thats my list and I'm kind of proud of the progress made. I'll probably be updating this post as the months pass by (sheesh I'm already 6 months along) and again after my baby shower!
By the way what do you guys think of my sample invite? It's the first shot only and we are making some changes to it.
