Alright for those expecting, have you registered yet?
Wow, so overwhelming with all the stuff out there and having to make so many choices. If its your first child you are kinda blind in knowing what is really needed and what is fluff. I think if I was having one it wouldnt be as hard but having two and two different genders, it has been difficult. I dont want to have neutral everything because I want my girl to be a girly and my son to be a boy so of course I registered for allot of the same thing just one blue and one pink. Our place is going to look so cliche...
For those breastfeeding, I have had a hard time deciding on which pump to invest in...I did find this website and it helped me make a decission so thought I would share. Looks like I am going to go with Ameda over Medela due to the sanitary reasons. Reviews look to be the same for both. If you have advise, feel free to leave it.
I know some may be wondering why I registered so early but due to traveling restrictions soon, my family lives in IL and wanted to have a baby shower for me. So I am having a baby shower on Aug 13th and will only be 21 weeks...oh well. I am excited to start getting things done and ready, maybe I wont feel so overwhelmed.
Other things I have done to prepare....
*cleaning the husband office/University of Illinois room out which will be the nursery. We dont have much storage being in a condo so it has not been fun plus having to get rid of allot.
*started this week we have ripped up all carpet in the house and going back with hard wood. Really excited about this because I know how nasty carpet can get and just makes me feel better knowing we will be breathing cleaner air and of course easier to clean stains up is a plus.
