Leyton’s Mumma Says….
WE often get asked what is the ultimate list of products/ equipment etc you need for a baby. The problem is the finer details really depend on the parents and your personal preference to things. For example, I am a self-proclaimed OTT paranoid Mumma who likes excel spreadsheets and post-it lists for everything. Therefore, in true style I collected info off a million websites and spoke to other parents, and created a spreadsheet of products to buy when we were expecting Leyton.
Laugh as you may, it really helped me and I’ve put it below in case it helps you too. We were super lucky that we had close friends who had recently had babies too so we had a lot of nearly new stuff which we were given, and I’m no snob, I think a problem shared is a problem halved and this giant list of things to buy was getting out of hand so we happily had second hand things from our friends and said we’d happily pass things back along with our stuff if/when they popped out baby number 2.
The below list is focused on getting the essentials for the baby rather than pregnancy, for pregnancy info take a look at the Survival Guide or the Pregnancy What To Do per Trimester . Hopefully you find it useful!
