You guys, babies have a lot of stuff. Like, a lot of stuff. And I’m not even talking about the number of appliances or equipment that can make life easier, like swings and bouncers and wipes warmers – I’m talking about the actual, sheet number of STUFF they need.
Like a billion and seven onesies, because poo-splosions will happen. Oh, and if you have a little with reflux, double that – at least.
Diapers. And diaper rash cream. And wipes. And nipple cream and boob pads and bibs and bottles and pacifiers and formula. And cleaning supplies – both for icky baby booties and your house which at some point will feel like it has a layer of yuck on it.
And that’s not even considering what happens when they get a little bigger.
We try to be ~minimalist~ in our house. not by choice but because our home does NOT have to room for anything more than that. With that in mind with both boys we kept the ‘stuff’ to a minimum and I realized that while babies do go through so.much.stuff, they don’t necessarily NEED a ton of stuff.
And when you have 2 under 2 you need to know what is ESSENTIAL and what isn’t, or else you’ll be drowning in baby AND toddler stuff. Because while babies need a ton of stuff, so do toddlers- and sometimes it doesn’t even overlap.
