What do you REALLY need?
(Anna is the baby in this photo, soon to be new mum, and my mum is holding her, soon to be grandma)
Pitter patter. Do you hear the sound of little feet? In case you missed it, my sister is pregnant. Very exciting. Babe is due at the end of March and we're counting down.
We've recently shared several interesting conversations. The most recent was about what 'baby' items you realistically need as a new mum! She believes that the commercial world out there is out to convince you that you need every little item. We were talking about nappy bags. She thinks it is silly when the nappy bag is childlike or covered in some kiddy character. Who is the bag for? She is far more keen to use a large bag she already has or wait to see if and what she needs in a bag.
This leads me to ask you mums out there, what do you really need? What can't you live without? I am very interested to know and I'll pass the info on to Anna...
