You may or may not have noticed that last month (and this month) I didn't do the milestone must-haves for mommy and baby like I'd done here, here, here, here, and here.
I realized that when I was pregnant it wasn't convenient to see a monthly list of items that came in handy. In fact, I would much rather have seen a cumulative list of necessities. I wish I'd had one to go by when registering for items. As a first time mom you really don't know what you need. And stores and companies would love to have you think you need all the pink and blue things.
So here is my necessity list for the first 6 months baby is in your life. Things I could not (or would not want to) live without the first 6 months of being a mom.
There are obvious items missing from the list like a pump, bottle warmer, etc. I wanted to accumulate a list of things that you might not think about in the excitement of preparing for baby.
Feel free to add your necessities in the comments below!
