BABY NEEDS CHECKLIST FOR THE FIRST YEAR

It’s surprising how  little we can actually get along with during baby’s first year, especially when you breastfeed, but here is a comprehensive checklist anyway. It is handy to have a guide on what else to get before baby is born, or what to get a friend for a stork party, but it is most important to have a list handy when registering on a baby registry. See what friends and family give first before you invest in too much, and always remember to donate the extra clothes to the less fortunate mommies out there…
