The wipes warmer is a nice little idea, letting you put warm baby wipes on baby’s bum instead of ice cold ones, but in reality it is not necessary. Your baby won’t mind room temperature wipes, and you can warm them in the palm of your hand. The warmers can even cause you to lose some of the wipes, as the last ones in the package tend to get a little dried out.
Sure, you will want a pair for cute pictures, but baby shoes are pretty pointless. After all, babies typically just kick them off, so you are left searching for a missing shoe time and time again. Not only that, but babies who are crawling actually do better without shoes, so wait until they start toddling to invest in shoes.
Yes, you want your baby to have sterile feeding supplies, but if you choose to bottle feed, the dishwasher or good old hot water do the trick just fine. If you are going to nurse, then you will not need this at all. Save a few bucks and invest in a pump or a few more bottles.
Some parents are going to need baby monitors, but this is a case where you need to think before you buy. If you have a single-level house, you are not going to need one. You will know if baby is crying. Even if you have a dual level house, you may not need the fancy video monitor. A simple radio one will give you the ability to listen to your baby.
Remember, babies are expensive. Anywhere that you can save a little money is a good option, so think before you purchase the big items for your newborn. You can always purchase it later if you decide it is needed.
