When I became a Mom, I had no idea what to buy for my baby and my registry proved just that. I was clueless! I googled every checklist you could imagine and even joined baby forums to vent.
There was just so many checklists! From the nursery checklist, baby gear checklist to the hospital bag checklist and not to mention the postpartum checklist, I was feeling waaaay overwhelmed. The word checklist gives me post traumatic stress! 😂
With baby number 3 just a few weeks away I have to admit that I am stress-free. I have yet to buy anything or have packed a hospital bag and if this is any indication of how life will be as a Mama of 3 then I know this new journey will be a breeze. I hope!
A few things that I’ve learned along the way is to stock up on TONS of onesies for those magical barf filled nights, extra bedsheets for yourself for when the bottle leaks on your side of the bed and LOTS of baby wipes for the nights you forget to take a shower and have to wipe yourself clean as you collapse to sleep. A little secret? it gets better!
