I get lots of unsolicited advice about adoption but I dont get much about babies.
So I'm asking for it! I want the BASICS. The plan is to have a baby shower after the baby arrives.
I'm going shopping this Saturday on my list so far:
Things I have or can borrow:
Going home outfit
Cloth Diapers (check?? I have 32 prefold plus about 10 inserts with 7 newborn fuzzie bunz and lots of wipes)
Pack N Play (on stand by)
Baby Swing (on stand by)
Blankets 5 (thanks to wonderful friends/family!!)
The Day you were born book and a Baby Book special for babies that are adopted (Thank you again friends and family :) )
bottles (I think I have four I dont recall and I can't find them at the moment)
lots of books :)
Things I Plan on getting or may need more of:
I need a Lactaid
Formula? (how much to get me started?)
Onesies (how many?)
Receiving blankets (I have 3 plus one swaddler)
burp clothes (I have three- I also am not opposed to using whatever is close to me i.e. diaper or receiving blanket)
Sleeping gown (how many?)
Things I plan to use in the mean time:
Pack N play
Have I over looked anything that is a MUST have?
