Your challenge: Bouncers to rockers to play gyms… oh my! You’re tallying up the expenses of everything your soon-to-arrive baby will supposedly need—and it’s starting to feel like saving for college will have to wait.
Your solution: Trust us, there is no need to take out a loan just to cover the costs of baby gear. While there are plenty of items that can fall into the “nice to have” category, there is a much smaller group of products that you’ll find baby (and yourself) really loving as they grow. And with a budget-friendly bundle, you can scoop them all up for the nursery for a steal.
Support for those marathon feeding sessions: Babies eat. A lot. With such little tummies, it may seem like your newest family member is snacking 24/7—and they can’t exactly help themselves to the pantry quite yet. Whether you are breastfeeding, bottle-feeding or doing a combination of the two, you’ll feel thankful for a breastfeeding pillow so your arms aren’t bearing the full weight of your baby for yet another feeding session. (Who knew little babies could start to feel so heavy?!)
A multipurpose space for baby: You could get a diaper changing station. And a play space. And a spot for your baby to sleep. Or you could get all three in one portable product with a multi-purpose playard. We’ll let you guess what’s our preferred option.
A place to play or rest: Between eating and sleeping, it may seem like your baby’s schedule is just about booked—but don’t underestimate how much of the world they are still soaking in! With a light-weight, easy to move bouncer, you can keep your new bestie close by while you take care of some to-dos and they study up on this new space.
Pro tip: It’s a lot easier to bring items into your home as you need them rather than get them all before the baby is born and suddenly feel like your space and budget is tight. Start here!
