Baby Items You Don’t Really Need

There are several things that a couple is not going to need to buy for their new baby. I know you’re busy as a new parent though, so this list is short and sweet!

Baby Wipe Warmer
If you want to warm the baby wipe before it touches the baby’s bottom, then all you have to do is rub it in between your hands before swiping it.

Diaper Pail
There is no point in buying something that you are going to have to throw away once the child is out of diapers. The best thing to do is to take the baby’s diapers outside to the trashcan, to help avoid any of the nasty odors inside of your house.

Changing Table
You can easily turn a dresser into a changing table, just by putting a changing pad on the level surface of the dresser. You can also turn any nook in your home into an instant changing station by putting a changing pad on the nook, just as long as you don’t leave the baby alone!

Baby Laundry Detergent
The average person is going to pay a lot more for laundry detergent that is made especially for babies. But as long as you use a laundry detergent that does not have any toxins or dyes in it, then you can wash the baby’s clothes in the same detergent that you wash your clothes in.

This is mostly because the baby is going to end up sleeping with you most of the time. Then the kid will probably go straight to their big kid bed. I would only buy a baby crib if you are absolutely sure that the baby is not going to sleep with you.

Most of the time, a baby is going to be more entertained by their mommy and daddy then any toy that you could buy. All a person has to do is interact with their baby.

Fluffy Blankets
A lot of the time, a baby is going to become very overheated if you wrap your baby up in a blanket. Instead, use a thin receiving blanket or swaddling blanket to wrap your baby up and make sure the baby has on warm clothing, like pajamas.

A baby is not going to need to wear any shoes until they start standing or walking. As long as the baby has a pair of socks on, the baby’s feet are going to stay warm. In fact, a baby’s feet might not develop properly if they wear a lot of shoes during the winter months.

Designer Clothes
A baby does NOT need a lot of fancy clothes, since they are going to grow out of them so quickly anyway! If you want to spend a little bit more money on clothes that you are going to want to pass down generations and generations to come, then maybe it’s fine, but you probably know as well as I do that trends are gone as quickly as they arrive.

A Bigger House
You don’t need to buy a bigger house until the child gets a little older. The baby is only going to take up a little bit of room! The only thing that a person might need to do is to get rid of some of the things that they no longer need. Then, you’ll have more room than you ever imagined!
