Hi, and welcome to my blog!
I am a first-time parent. When I first had my daughter, I didn’t know what a baby registry is. I also didn’t see a lot of things that I should prepare to make our life easier.
Turned out that being unprepared is the worst of all. We received random surprise gifts (baby bottles, baby shirts, etc.) and we are very grateful. On the other hand, the gifts, I believe, significantly dictated the quality of how I spent my first few days as a parent.
Having the baby bottles, for example, made me think to bottle-feed from Day 1, therefore forgetting the existence and importance of breastfeeding. Also, not knowing about cloth diapers made us spent a lot of money on disposables in the first few months.
Realizing a little later that I should be breastfeeding, I had wasted money on different breast pumps when I was trying to relactate (3rd month to 4th month) as well as accessories for pumping that I didn’t manage to make use full-time because of unsuccessful relactation. I have a lot of feeding accessories to bribe my daughter to eat. I also have useless baby gears that I would love to return if only I can.
I thought it would be useful to share with you what I learn about different baby products that you can use for your first child – as well as stuff that doesn’t need to be purchased in the first place, or you can delay buying until you need them.
If you have any question at any time, feel free to leave them on the article page or send me a message.
