When you are pregnant for the first time, it’s so exciting. You start planning the name you will give your babe, the way you will tell your family and friends the happy news and you start making a list of everything you need to get done before the baby arrives.
Top on the list is things that you will need, the so-called “essential products” that come with having a baby. I remember being so stressed as my due date came closer that I had to get everything ready, the perfect crib, the nursery, the toys — all of it had to be perfect.
Then the baby came, time passed and I had two more children and I realized just what I really needed and what products were a total waste of money. Yes, even many of the “essential” ones. Looking back they were just a waste of time, money and stress for products we didn’t actually need.
As my husband and I continue trying to conceive our fourth baby and plan all that we need to get ready, we’ve realized we don’t need to get anything and we don’t even have any of these “essential” products.
