Having A Baby? Don’t Waste Your Money On These
Okay, before you roll your eyes and say to yourself, “What does he know?” I’m a father of two, and a grandparent.
I recall my daughter watching in amazement the first time I gave her infant son a bottle, and the stunned look when I offered to change a smelly diaper. The first time he threw up on me, she went into a panic. I laughed and said “What, you think you never puked all over me?”
I think that qualifies me to write an article titled , Having A Baby? Don’t Waste Your Money On These.
You don’t need a changing table if you have a dresser or chest of drawers. They cost anywhere from $150-$500. Once the baby’s too big, what are you going to do with it? Get a changing pad.
Designer baby clothes? OH, PLEASE! Your baby is going to do horrible things to her/his clothes, and will outgrow them very quickly.
A Wipe warmer? We’re not even discussing that.
Bassinette? Get a portable crib.
