Essentials for Baby

I am a super planner. Having a baby for me is one of the ultimate ways to plan months of my life ahead of time. I started my Baby's R Us registry pretty much the week I found out I was pregnant. Of course, Baby's R Us wants me to buy everything I will ever consider buying for the baby. Being the planner I am, I pretty much put everything on my registry. Now I am facing hard financial times and reconsidering what I will actually need for the baby and what we can live without. The BabyCenter (out of Canada) is probably the best site for moms-to-be, and gives me a no nonsense reality check on what to expect and what I need to be prepared for. I just found a link today about what I will really need to take care of baby for the first few months. I am relieved to know that I can do without a lot of stuff I was going to fork over lots of money to have. And it makes me realize that I may be stressing out more by trying to plan every little detail of having this baby. Wish me luck on not losing my mind in the process of trying to stay calm and collected!

Here is the link about what I really need
