However, growing your family can also feel overwhelming. There’s a lot to think about and prepare for!

In years past, parents raised their babies with only a few essentials. Baby “must-haves” on the market today weren’t even invented then, but parents and babies survived. Here you’ll discover what you really need for your minimalist baby.

When you’re preparing to welcome a baby into your home, creating a baby registry is a must! But with so much on the baby market these days, it’s hard to know what the essential baby items are and what you can skip.
