With so much baby gear out there, it’s easy to feel overwhelmed and sometimes even buy too much– but don’t worry, here are five items you won’t need to splurge on.
[MUSIC] Buying or registering for baby stuff? Skip the items that aren’t worth the splurge, here are five. First, a changing table, they’re pricey and take up lots of space. Instead, buy a changing pad and secure it to a low dresser or wide bench. Furniture you can use as your child grows. Number two, a wipe warmer. Warm, moist environments can be breeding grounds for germs. Keeping something in a contained space that will touch your baby’s privates is not a good idea. Number three, a diaper. Diaper bag. Just because it’s marketed as a diaper bag doesn’t mean it comes with many special features, only a heavy price tag. Instead, opt for a messenger bag or tote which will still get the job done. Number four, crib bumpers. They have caused a number of deaths and injuries in babies two years old and younger. Younger. Instead opt for cute sheets and crib skirt. And finally, a stand alone high chair. They’re expensive, clunky, and a hassle to clean. Get a model that simply attaches to a dining chair and let baby eat at the table. That way you don’t have to buy a booster seat later on. [MUSIC]
