Welcoming a baby into the world is a precious and magical moment. While excitement of brining a new life into the world can thrill you — the thought of the “stuff” you need can make you worry.
That leads many to wonder, what are the things we really need? Sure, there are items you might want and even those you think you need, but…what do you truly need? What are those must have items for baby’s arrival?
