                                  Tudah Rbah (thank you very much). I am putting my list together. Before I leave,let me tell you, the real Name of the Creator is Hayah asher Hayah (Exodus 3:13-14), as what He told Mose(s). Also, all mankind, not just the Yahudim/Jews are supposed to do the 7 appointed times (Leviticus 23), but no more animal sacrifices, following the sacrifice of heaven's Perfect Lamb, the Messiah. We are now of the order of MLK TSDQ (King Righteous). And never take the mark of the beast (Revelation).

                                    Wastes for us were
                                    Fancy clothes
                                    Plastic bathtub/ wish I would've just bought the blooming bath
                                    Diaper Jeanie/expensive bags didn't contain smell at all
                                    Tummy time pall/he hated tummy time and the pall didn't help
                                    Peepee teepee just not practical

                                    Must haves
                                    Wubby nub, he wouldn't take any other binky and I feel the stuffed animal helped keep it in his mouth because he would loose all the others quickly and just didn't seem to like them.

                                    Onesies with mittens built in. We didn't have them at first and had to use socks to keep him from scratching his face.

                                    Crinkle paper or crinkle books would keep him entertained for so long. (At about 2 months)

                                                              Today I’m 7.5 weeks. I found out that I have a bicornuate uterus (heart shape) therefore I have higher chance of miscarriage and the baby has half the room to grow and I’m most likely to have a premie and scheduled c-section. And while online I read that it should not affect fertility, many woman have a hard time getting pregnant with this. Now that I’m realizing this might be my only baby, I am super nervous. Idk why I’m venting about it here out of all the videos I’ve seen but I guess I’m in my head. I’m trying to focus on that we’re healthy for now.
                                                              Wow, Anyway, thanks for the tips!

                                                                I feel like the irony of these kinds of videos is baby stuff is completely individual. Outside of the mamaroo we have used all the things I'm your regret list and couldn't live without. I've gone into the newborn stage buying used when I can and when I can't I borrow from friends before I buy. The reality is every baby is different and you gotta have whatever is going to get you through!

                                                                            I actually think the sleepers are complicated to take on and off, especially for diaper changes. I prefer the short sleeve onesies. Sleepers are also too hot for a TX baby, even with the A/C on! I liked the swaddle clothes but wasn't super crazy about them. The flannel Cloud Island blankets are the best for swaddling, muslin blankets are too cumbersome, thin and flimsy, and he's too small for them right now. Also agree that cloth diapers are the best for burp cloths, mats, etc!! We don't use a rocking swing for the baby, at least so far at almost 3 months old. He's pretty self-sufficient and doesn't need a lot of rocking. We just have a bassinet with mesh all around the sides plus a Day Dreamer chair (not a fan of the Doc-a-Tot)...and a crib of course! Plastic tub is kind of a pain to store, but he likes it ok :) Good tips overall!
