Babies will never judge their parents for the amount of stuff that they had when they were little or didn’t have when they were babies. In fact, most babies only need a few basic necessities in order to be adequately cared for and they don’t need a bunch of fancy things. A baby will use most of their baby gear for a short period of time and they quickly grow out of it. If you are expecting and have a limited budget, I would recommend that parents buy or register for the following items in order to properly care for their newborn baby.
Disclosure: This post reflects my own opinions and you may find additional products that you need or want in order to care for your baby. My list is based upon my own opinions and experience with raising my own three children.
A baby will remember the way that their parents loved them more than anything that you can buy for them. There are many resources that can assist parents who don’t have enough money to buy basic items to care for their baby, check your local phone book or area for pregnancy assistance. If you are unable to buy food or don’t have medical care, you should contact your local Health and Human Services Department immediately.
