So i’ve been home now for about a week and a half and there are a lot of us going through this pregnancy/motherhood journey together (SO FUN). Quite a few people are asking the essentials that I’ve need in that first few weeks. Seriously, baby needs basically nothing all of these things are for you because… holy crap, our bodies did something wild and now we need to repair. People have been raising babies since we existed, they’ve raised them in caves, vans, 1st world countries, 3rd world countries, castles, you get the drift. There are a million ways to do it, and very simple ways to do it. Products have been created to make our lives simpler… but sometimes in my opinion they can also complicate the process. I’d like to consider myself a minimalist in the sense that I don’t like to have EXTRA stuff. I want to have the things I use and love and that is it. SO in this list I want to be clear about WHY I put it on my essentials list and you can decide if it is something that you think you and your baby need. I’m also the person that will pay extra for things I think are essential and the ones that aren’t buy from goodwill.
