Being somewhat of a veteran when it comes to motherhood with babies, I've realized that sometimes all that extra baby stuff, is just not necessary. Of course with Olivia & Abigail being my first, I bought a lot of stuff. They were girls and twins, and well, there was no stopping me. When I was preparing for Greyson, I kept it minimal and stuck with the essentials. Although this list does not included everything that'll you'll need, it's a good start!
Sleeping: Plum & Sparrow Moses Basket | DockATot | Arms Reach Mini
With Olivia being a micro preemie and in the hospital for 5 months, when she finally came home, I wanted her close. Both Olivia & Greyson slept in a bassinet as newborns until they transitioned to co-sleeping with me once they outgrew it. Almost 5 years later, and they are still sleeping in my bed. I figure one day they'll want nothing to do with me and I'm soaking up all the extra cuddles until then. My back isn't fond of it, but my heart sure is!
