Babies are expensive; there's no doubt about it. You'll be spending quite a bit of cash on this one tiny human -- why spend a penny more than necessary?
- Baby comforters: Not safe at all; your baby should never be put in a crib or on a bed with a heavy blanket of any kind. If you do get a crib you'll spend a lot of useful time (when you could be napping yourself) taking the comforter out and then putting it back in.
- Diaper stacker: You will never take the time to refill it -- it's just one more thing to dust.
- A walker
- A sleep positioner: Simply put your baby to sleep on her back. Also, some positioners are designed so that they keep your baby sleeping sideways -- this is not the recommended sleep position for babies. Back to sleep, all the time.
- Baby wipe warmer: the cold won't kill junior (really) it's another refill and dust gathering time waster.
- Baby monitor: the only reason you need one of these is if your little one resides in a separate wing and I'm hoping that's not true for any of my readers.
- Baby hamper: Buy a cheaper, normal sized adult hamper. One tiny baby will create so much laundry that your head will spin. Sadly, I'm not kidding.
- Baby water or baby juice: Babies need breastmilk; after breastmilk go with a good formula. Babies should not have juice until after they have their first birthday and they can drink the same water you do.
- Baby powder: you can use baby powder all you want for your own skin but it's dangerous for babies. Some babies have died from inhaling baby powder. If you want to keep your baby dry just check her diaper regularly.
- A baby lamp:By baby lamp, I mean anything that a child older than two will deem uncool. Themed nursery furniture may seem super cute -- but it looks less cute in an older child's room. Buy a normal lamp (and other nursery items) that can grow with your child.
