pacifers, diapers and bottles

Those are the only things I need right?

Goodness gracious! Although I registered quite sometime ago, I feel like I don't have everything I need. Please don't take that wrong, like I'm selfish or whatnot, but I just feel as though, there are many things I am missing, even though I'm probably not.

I mean, this is my first "rodeo" ya know and there are many things I am not sure about - there I said it! You see, I have babysat for many families or the last several years, I'd say at last 10 years. I have babysat for families that have infants to 10 year olds, I've pretty much covered all basis. Not only have I been babysitting for a long time, I also have worked with children for several years, so I feel that I have a good grasp on kids and what it's like being " mom " for the day.

But the more and more I think about, I'm rather scared about the adventure I am about to embark. Of course I am thrilled, excited, happy, overjoyed and anticipating the arrival of Bristol, but of course, human nature is setting in. Do I really know what I am doing? Will I know how to feed her right? Burp her correctly? The list goes on....

So besides the emotions that I am going through right now..... I wanted to ask all of you mama's out there what you recommend that I register for, other than the main items. Of course I need the stroller, carseat, bouncer, swing, pack n play.

What about the little items? What type of bottles and how many do I register for? I did register for 2 different kinds because someone told me she might not like a certain brand so register for more than one brand and don't over register for both brands. Does this make sense? Ah!

So here is what I am asking of you....

Can you send me your top 10 list of MUST HAVES of baby items that you couldn't and can't live without?

You can comment on here or email me at

I really would LOVE to hear from you because I need all the help I can get :)

i left a superrrr long list on Fbook. but as for the bottle issue...i would just register for one or two from a few different brands and see which one she takes to. THEN you can stock up on the ones she likes! or can send brandon to stock up :) same w/pacis. we lucked out and both of our girls loved avent bottles and NUK pacis. easy-peasy.

LOVE YOU!! soooo happy for you guys!!!! can't wait to see little bristol

Every baby is so different! Oh and I didnt mention a playmat with things to swat, eventually that will be your best friend because you can lay her down to look at the toys/lights and get something done around the house. We have the rainforest mat, but any of them will do. oh and top #1 item is totally the miracle blanket.
