Basic Essential Baby Items: 16 Baby Items that You Need to Care for a Newborn

Babies will never judge their parents for the amount of stuff that they had when they were little or didn’t have when they were babies.  In fact, most babies only need a few basic necessities in order to be adequately cared for and they don’t need a bunch of fancy things.  A baby will use most of their baby gear for a short period of time and they quickly grow out of it.  If you are expecting and have a limited budget, I would recommend that parents buy or register for the following…

My Son has a Fever and I'm Freaking Out!!!

I've been a parent for years now and I know that no matter what precautions we take, fevers and colds are inevitable. Two years ago, my older son had a fever the moment we got to Orlando.
