A few days ago I shared a post on the 8 “essential” baby products that I was sure we would need (why else would they be on every ‘essential’ list) that turned out to be a big waste of money for us. I know that not everyone will agree, but I stand by each product on there as being a waste of money for us and going into trying for our 4th child, we will not be getting any of those products again.
I realize not everyone co-sleeps and room-shares, but Babble is about sharing different lifestyles, and our life includes bed and room sharing with our children — making most of the “essentials” that are drilled into us when expecting a big waste of money for us.
There were a few of you who asked what would be on our ‘essential’ list for new parents or parents going to have more than one child since many of them were on our waste of money list, so I have compiled a list of our 5 essential products that I am glad we spent money on.
