Im feeling the insane urge to buy more and more baby stuff..I feel like this child is going to be born with nothing and I can't seem to put that worry to rest..I can't remember for the life of me how many of everything I need and when I happen to look it up the numbers seem ludicrously low..I know with my first son I got so much at my shower I don't think I purchased anything for him for almost a whole yr..But going in with this little one Im doing all the buying...I know Ive got about 15 outfits, few extra shirts and pants..8 longsleeve onsies, about 12-15 short sleeve onsies 10 pair of socks,4-6 sweaters, 4 pair of mitties, 4 pacifiers,10 burp cloths,8 washcloths,2 dozen newborn size cloth diapers, 6 newborn covers(will fit 4-12 lbs), also about 2 dozen prefold diapers in the next largest size and 5 covers(10-35 lbs) and 15 pocket diapers(im up in the air about selling them)..I do also have my bouncy seat, crib, floor gym. I still need to buy my car seat stroller combo, pack'n'play,crib sheets etc...Im just so frazzled..Ive done this twice before and and helped my sister do this 3 times now and i can't seem to get a grasp on what this little one needs..perhaps its just preggo brain or perhaps Im losing my mind completely but could anyone compile a small list of essentials that Im missing or forgetting..I just don't want sept to roll around and be completely unprepared..time seems to be flying this time around and I can't get ready fast enough..
