I want to make it easy this time around. I want to have the minimum without buying crazy crap I dont need or didnt work. I am talking about things that arent obvious or maybe someone gifted you this and you never thought to get it yourself and dont know what you would of done without it. I also want to know the best babysling for breastfeeding or one you felt extremely useful and worked well for all stages. I just want to be a different mom this last time aroubd! Thanks!

Carseat,portable changing pad,& those arm & hammer disposable diaper baggies that clip to your diaper bag.

I didn't have a baby sling,but I plan to have one for my next one.

I have a BabyHawk, and that to me is indispensable.

Other than that...diapers and a diaper bag? Lol, that's been essential to me.

Lol, BabyHawk is a mei tai style of baby carrier that goes on your front or back...

It's super comfortable, and can go on the front or back, depending on how you want to carry your baby. I've used it since Abby was a newb, and absolutely love it!

Mei tie, lots of clothes (DD used to vomit a lot before we had her lip tie fixed), and pacis. Those are besides the obvious diapers and carseat
