Last post, just so many questions runnin through my head today. My son is only a year old but I feel like I have already forgotten so much from when he was a newborn, so what things do I need that I have forgotten. I have a new large baby bag, a double pram, bottles, clothes, blankets, a bouncer, playmat, bassinet, cot, cot set, highchair, portacot and carseat. Is there anything else I need that's important and that I need before birth or can everything else wait till after? I feel like I'm forgetting things.

I think ppl go crazy with "needs" for baby. most of the crap is pointless. here's my "must have" list:

Coconut oil (for sore nips, diaper rash ointment, and baby lotion)
Bouncer seat (so I *might* get a shower haha)
Clothes (a few onesies & you're set. skin to skin with just a diaper is optimal)
Baby carrier ( I prefer a woven wrap or ring sling)
Car seat
diaper bag (optional, sinceca large purse could work too)
