It is true that a baby requires many accessories and products to grow up happy and healthy. Many of these products also make life a lot simpler for parents, but with so much marketing around you, you've probably been tempted to buy many more things than you actually need.
Before buying something, check the small list of baby products below that are not truly necessary. You'll save lots of money!
# 1 Bottle Warmer
It makes no sense to buy a bottle warmer when the liquid you pour in can solve that problem. Filling the bottle with hot water solves your problem in minutes.
# 2 Toys that sing
You don't have to have the best pipes to soothe your baby. As a Mom, you have the perfect voice to sing to your baby and you will avoid the extra noise around the house when your not in the mood.
# 3 Bath thermometer
Really, what's wrong with your hand? Sure thermometers might give a perfect temperature reading, but parents have been testing the waters to determine if it is too hot with their sense of touch for years.
# 4 Changing station
Although useful, a changing unit will only serve you for a short time and then you will have a baby item that just gets in the way. It is best if you buy a high chest of drawers and place a mat on top to change your little one.
# 5 Wipe Heater
It will be more enjoyable for your baby to feel something warm when getting cleaned up, but warming-up of wipes is not essential.
# 6 Intercoms
Unless you live in a huge place where your baby is out of earshot, chances are you can hear your baby crying from any corner of your house. Also, they will likely sleep in the same room with you for the first few months.
# 7 Shoes
Yes, they are adorable. But if your baby is less than 6 months old and does not walk, he does not need shoes. Save the money on those decorative little shoes to buy the first pair your baby will actually need them.
