Our expanding supply list

Well… I finally sat down and made a partial list of items we still need.  I say “partial” because I know there’s more, I think my brain is just shutting some of it out for the moment to help me retain some sanity.  Where on earth are we going to put all this stuff?

  • 2 Car seats.  We’ll be getting these new.  When it has to do with safety, I don’t mess around!
  • Cribs, mattresses, and bedding.  I found some terrific space-saving crib options at Ikea.  And, best of all, they turn into toddler beds so we’ll get years of use out of them.
  • Stroller.  I’m keeping my eyes out for a used double Snap ‘n Go.  After all, winter will be here before we know it so we won’t get a ton of use out of this, but I’m sure it will come in handy for a while.
  • Bottles, bottles, and more bottles.  While breastfeeding is our first choice, I’m not completely delusional!
  • Bottle brush (easy peasy).
  • Diapers.  I’m still up for cloth and supplementing with disposables when needed.
  • Wipes.
  • Dryer balls.  No more dryer sheets!!  They can ruin the quality of the cloth diapers.
  • Charlie’s Soap.  A favorite for washing cloth diapers.
  • 2 Diaper pails.  One for cloth, one for disposables.
  • Baby ear thermometer.
  • Diaper rash ointment.
  • Baby nail clipper.
  • 2 bulb syringes for stuffy noses.

And, the list will continue, I’m sure.
