There's so many things available for babies that it's hard to tell what is necessary and what is just for decoration or for fun. Do I NEED a crib bumper for a little baby?? Or is a crib bumper more for a bigger baby? What purpose does it serve?
They aren't recommended for safety reasons. They increase the risk of SIDS.

I used a crib bumper and will again. My DD's legs started getting stuck in the bars as soon as I got rid of the bumper. That's when I ditched the crib and went for a toddler bed. She was 18 months.
I use a bassinet now, and will go to a crib in 2 months when he goes into his own room. I also love the boppy, swing, bouncer, activity bars, my car seat stroller combo, and pack n play. I'll need a breast pump for I can't BF my baby when teaching in August. I have already introduced him to a bottle, and luckily he takes well to both my breast and the bottle with no issue. PLUS daddy has to help with feedings to keep me sane. :)
Your needs and wants for your baby are based on your life style, and what you need or want to use certain things for.

(Just for Fun)
Do you make your own shampoo? Is it less expensive than store bought brands...
