  • Less clothing like onesies and baby lotion/washing products.

    More diapers, wipes, socks, those mitts that went on his hands.

  • I wish I or someone would have thought to buy some outfits for the future, like 24 mos, 2T, && 3T things. I had so many onesies for him that I could wait 3 weeks or longer before he ran out of things to wear, but now that he's 2 && actually gets dirty, I have to do his laundry way more That && bigger outfits are more expensive.

  • Sheet savers, more crib sheets, sleep sacks, and DIAPERS! I loved the swaddlers too and wished I had of asked for some. Also, I wish I had of asked for more expensive bottles and accessories, like the Avent brand.

  • I got two crocheted/sweater type outfits. We live in SC and I'm due in August. I wish we had not gotten those. They were bought, they weren't made by the people. And the one looks like it wasn't cheap, either.

    I would rather people have gotten us cloth diapers rather than clothes at the shower. We pretty much have her covered in the clothing department from the time she's born until about 9 or 12 months old because my stepmom has been going to yard sales and just buying clothes when stores have sales. My husband and I have bought her two things - a onesie and a shirt.

  • Baby gates and safety items (outlet plugs, etc). You will need them sooner than you think and they are really not fun to buy! lol
