first year baby items

lot of diapers! :)) It's hard to predict, but I think that the top of your registry list will look something like this:

1. Infant car seat- you won't be able to drive your baby home without it.

2.Crib-if you're planning to have a big family,you may consider to have a sturdy crib.

3.Baby bathtub.

4. Clothing:one piece outfit, mittens,nightgowns,socks, hats

5.Supplies: bottles, nipples, breast pump,baby thermometer,a waterproof pad...a lot more:))

6.Toys,playpen, exercise ring..

7. Stroller

and much, much more. A “reasonable expectation” of the costs the first year as $11,025. The breakdown is Food: $1646, Clothing: $1879, Health Care: $154, Child Care: $4,990, Shelter, Furnishings, Household Operations: 2,356.

    I preferred sleepers for around home. We used cuter outfits for going out and special occasions. Silly but I was always worried about ruining the cute clothes! I think sleepers are more practical because no socks are required and they keep baby warm.

      Great list. I am sure those figures are enough to scare any new parent off. ;)

      Elena, for my first couple of children I had much of what was on your list. However, as we added to our family I did away with the baby tub, baby swing, and even crib since we needed more space and practiced co-sleeping.

      I guess I just think if the focus is on the money no one will ever have children. Even if you start out having savings in the bank for children (we did), circumstances can change (lose a job or savings) over time and what happens when the savings is gone but you still have children to provide for? You pick up the slack and do what needs to be done to provide for your family, right? The money aspect does seem to work itself out in the end.
