What you don't need for a baby

Honest to goodness the only things you DO need for a baby are:
1. A place for them to sleep
2. A few outfits for them to wear
3. Diapers
4. A way to feed them (either breastfeeding or bottles and formula)

That's it!!!! All the rest either makes it easier or is just a good way to waste your money!!

What do you think - did I forget anything on the list of needs?? Is there something that really stood out to you that you thought you needed but ended up not using??

    We really did not use a baby swing. I eventually even got rid of our crib and changing table as our townhome got more crowded. I think your list is perfect!
    We didn't have a swing for Mason or Audrey. Someone let us borrow one for Hayden and I used it MAYBE twice. Totally agree that a swing isn't necessary!
