The only baby seat type thing we really used for all 4 kids was a baby swing. I totally agree with the sleepers. They are so comfy for them! And simple!

I am waiting for my second and I won't buy anything. I have everything ^^ Moreover I wouldnt recomend some of the things from your list. In Poland bouncy seat is not advised by neurolgists. The carrier for the babies that doesn't seat as well. Accordingly to the specialist you can use it when the baby seat properly... I used baby sling and it was a great solution.

I shared this video (and other similar ones re: baby registry) with my daughter who is expecting her 1st baby soon. Really appreciate both of you for sharing your experience and wisdom 😘. She is very fortunate to receive well loved baby items from friends and friends of friends! She’s also bought a number of used baby items on FB Marketplace. Good tips about the diaper bag, and she received a very similar one you showed as a shower gift.

Swaddles blankets i didnt use as much as i thought i would but sleep sacks and the love to dream swaddle up 50/50 i loved, aden and anais burpy bibs are the best, the hatch baby rest sound machine i loved so much i bought myself one, the carrier was essential for me, and a pack n play with bassinet and a toy bar were amazing.

Hi. I would suggest a co sleeper instead of co sleeping. I have heard of babies suffocating from co sleeping. We purchased a co sleeper for our 9th. I wish I would have had it since day 1. Plus when the baby out grows it you can use it anywhere in the house as a changing station since they are small in size. Blessings I would suggest remaking this video and deleting this one due to some people might not read the comments and know about the recall!

I love your videos and always appreciate what you have to say, but hearing you advising or okaying unsafe sleeping arrangements was not cool. If anyone is reading this, please follow the ABC's of safe sleep: alone (no parents, stuffed animals, blankets, etc), on their back, in a crib (or anything classified as a bassinet)

Great tips. My kids are older now, but I totally agree. I can't believe the stuff we bought and got. The only thing I would not recommend is the nose thing. Besides it being gross, our pediatrician say it might irritate the inside of the the nose even more and make it swell up. He recommended not to use it. We didn't and never had any issues.
Real Life. Real Joy.
I have a newborn right now, and 5 sleepers and onsies is NOT enough! My baby is 1 month old and he pees, poops or pukes on 3-4 outfits a day! As a sleep deprived parent, I'm not doing a load of laundry every single day! I think I have about 10 and that's perfect to go a couple days. This baby is my #7 and I've never used a baby monitor or a noise machine. I'm glad we have our pack n play, but we only use it for traveling. The one thing I love that you didn't mention was a boppy pillow! I use it for nursing, to lay baby in on the couch or my bed, and I also make my other children use it when they are holding the baby. Babies definitly don't need as much stuff as we think. I remember being so overwhelmed by how much stuff (I thought) we had to buy when I was expecting my first.

My daughter finally got a video monitor for baby 3, and it is wonderful. When I babysit the grands, I can take the older ones outside to play while the baby is napping in the house, but I can monitor when he wakes up. We had a sound only monitor for the first two, and it was just not as useful. My daughter used a Pack N Play for her second child until she was probably almost 2 because the two girls were not compatible sleepers for a long time. Her #3 is now 20 months old, and he sleeps in the Pack N Play now. The two girls have now moved from their cribs to big girl beds; for right now the actual cribs are dismantled and put away. Being able to easily move the Pack N Play to other rooms or for travel has worked well. Baby #4 will also be in some kind of Pack N Play type bed when he/she arrives in the next couple of weeks. One other thing that we got when my daughter was a baby was a portable playyard type fence. We put it around our old-fashioned very heavy TV on a cart (30+ years ago before flat-screens were around- and it protected both the TV and my daughter from damage.) Now all these years later, she uses the same fence to keep the kids away from the brick hearth/fireplace. It is a little worn, but it does its job and we have certainly gotten our money's worth out of it Thanks for sharing your thoughts. When my daughter was born, we must have received 10 or so baby dresses for her from people at church. Very few of them got much wear. Keeping babies in sleepers just simplifies life.

Great top 10! I bought a second hand bassinet on Facebook market place... then sold for same price I got it! Brilliant! My boy was big so only used for 3 months, then he went to a cot ( also second hand and still using at 19m). I would switch out a baby monitor as watching it caused me anxiety personally and we have a small enough house that I hear when my son needs me. Will be getting a sound machine next time as my phone/ speaker option for white noise/ lullabies kept not working etc! So will keep that tip in mind. I used the swaddle blankets and still do, and sleepers with zips are the best! Thanks for sharing! Excited for more baby content as I have one toddler and hope to have more children sometime soon. I love the minimal toy guide you do but would love one for baby/toddler age rather than older kids like Dawns. Just an idea!

We did not have a white sound machine. Our first was awake, I swear, when we even looked at her. The other two slept with the sounds of home. We had a two story house. We used a bassinette downstairs with the first two when they were real little. With the third, we had a pack-n-play with an elevated level for when he was tiny, and we used that all the time. The other thing about the pack n play was that he was "at home in his own crib" when we traveled, and would sleep well in it. Sleepers for sure were the most versatile, practicle clothing pieces. or our first, we received many dresses and other dressy clothes. Many of which were worn once. And many of which she was restless and uncomfortable in. With the second and third, we went with comfort and ease all the way. One thing that is available now are the little leather Robies and they are such comfy little shoes, and they are a nice gift. No little babies here, but fun to listen and think about!

Both my kids spat up... A LOT! Invest in big burp clothes (I loved using cloth diapers) and bibs of all sizes. I also needed a stock of Oxi Clean and/or Shout!

My oldest is 22 and I STILL use the container thing to wash lids and rings, etc in the dishwasher on the top rack. A swing was essential for my kids. Baby Einstein was big when my kids were babies....we listened to music and to this day the cd i played immediately makes all six of us sleepy. I also co-slept with a couple of my kids .... Was working full time and had to do what i had to do.
I recycled old cotton t shirts for a carrier. Friendly enough for non sewers and just snug enough and I could keep her legs up and comfortable.
Sarah Richardson
This was a great list, but I had to laugh when you said 3 sleepers... You've clearly never had a kid with reflux. I swear my kid went through 4-5 a day. Also the diaper bag had to be huge because we had to bring changes of clothes for both parents and 4-5 changes for baby 😂

And you cant have enough burp rags if your kid has reflux!

My “changing table” was a rubber sheet. I changed diapers anywhere: bed, door, playpen, back of van. (And they were cloth diapers.) Bathroom floor was my favorite place to clean babies. You are close to water. My daughter followed suit and used the rubber sheet for her daughter on the bathroom counter. Wipes are hard on environment so sink with running water is your best option. Minimal? Or just old fashioned? FYI My kids are in their forties.

I would swap a wet bag for your recommended white noise machine. I've never been a fan of white noise, as its name states it is noise...babies should enjoy the quiet or natural sounds like birds chirping. We live where it's warm so our windows are almost always open

Wish I would’ve had this info with my first born. I bought so much unnecessary stuff! I drastically scaled down with the last 2 babies and I think if I were to have a 4th they would have about 5 things 😂

Please wash clothes before wearing them on your baby. They are sprayed with chemicals ,and can cause skin irritations.
Lindsay Erickson
I totally agree to the sleepers and onesies! My daughter lives in those! They really were her most comfortable clothes. Those fancy baby jeans, frilly blouses and dresses she would grab at, start crying, and became fussy wearing. It’s about baby’s comfort and protection, not the parents representing their style on baby dressing. My favorite tip of your baby essentials!

I hate to be rude, but were you ever checked for nasal polyps? You might not realize it, but it's very hard to understand you. Your sister has a similar voice to you, but without the nasal sound. BTW, I had a similar problem. Mine were removed. I breathe better, I sound better, and people understand me now. Also, the nasal sound is completely gone. Please get checked.

Hi ladies!! I'm finally caught up 😁 Been watching like crazy all the way back from Christmas last year... So many comments I want to make! I'll pace myself 😉 Knowing you all are fellow believers makes watching you even more special. Something I am curious about though (maybe it was addressed and I missed it somehow) Both of your oldest girls have very similar names... Family related? Or just a twin thing? Keep up the great work! Hugs from PA.

We loved the Muslim burbs clothes. Our staple was plain white towels and face clothes. We were gifted so many hooded towels etc and he out grew them fast. It was nicer to wrap him in a big towel. Another tip is to sign up for all the baby freebies and samples. That's how we tried bottles etc. We have enough sample baby wash and bum cream until hes a teenager lol. We donated alot to a nearby shelter. We also out grew things fast at first. We have tons of gifts that are unworn etc. We packed a bin with all the brand new stuff for upcoming baby showers. We also save the diaper boxes. They are sturdy and great for putting all the outgrown clothing etc in them. Also check out local big box places for diapers. We buy from Costco. A case that lasts 6 weeks is about 40.00 cdn. We are positive the diapers are made by a name brand for them. We love the Kirkland brand diapers. The Pampers wipes by the case are amazing. You can never have enough for messy clean ups. Also a tip we found. We put a Google mini into my grandsons room (hes almost 2). After story time if hes still restless we ask the google mini to tell him a bedtime story. In tandum with the monitor, you can use the voice on the monitor to reactivate the mini if you need to. I swear my grandsons first statement was okay Google lol. I also use it to send music to his room at bedtime. Babies are so much fun. It can be a little stressful but once you find your communication it's amazing. My biggest advice is to try and be calm. The baby feeds off your vibe. If your calm and the baby gets that they can relax as well. ❤❤❤

Something that we did is we also had a plastic tub in the trunk of our car that had additional baby items in it (and we changed it out as the kids grew). Extra diapers, wipes, washable changing mat, sippy cups, bottled water, a complete change of clothes (seasonal), ziplock bags (for soiled items) and a blanket. We also kept additional car toys in there that we would rotate through the vehicle and back to the box (never anything that was in the house--it was more special that way). We lived overseas where it was a long drive to anywhere and more than once those additional clothes/diapers etc came in handy when we were nowhere near civilization! We did this for YEARS and it was a great way to keep the diaper bag lighter knowing you still had supplies available to restock your bag in case of a mommy emergency!

My new babies sleep in my room so I changed my night stand light bulb to an 8 watt bulb so it was more like a night light. Zipper sleepers are a must, pack n plays are not necessary but I’m finally using mine in the house as a play pen for my 15 month old to keep him out of trouble while I homeschool. I’ve definitely gone more minimal with every baby. The only thing they need a lot of is love!
Andrea Kissinger
People always say, "Kids are SO expensive!". They don't have to be. There are LOTS of ways to minimize the cost of kids' stuff. The best way: Don't buy so much! When my kid was a baby, I got most of her stuff secondhand or free from friends: Clothing, cloth diapers, a crib, toys, etc. She's 6 now, and I still buy most of her clothes from Once Upon a Child.

I have a 9 month old and have used my 80 dollar diaper bag zero times. I just throw everything in a big purse. For white noise we just use a fan in our room, which is also recommended to reduce risk of sids. Warning on the dock a tot! Not considered a safe sleep environment :( you are supposed to supervise dock a tot use

My oldest was 9lbs 14 ounces. We were in six month clothes in the first month and had so much waste. Such good advise! I used a portable changing pad downstairs, anywhere. I’d skip the matching baby furniture which is all a waste. Crib, chair. That’s it.

I agree with pretty much all you said. If you borrow older equipment please make sure it is in good condition still. Our borrowed swing looked ok and then started sparking /smoking one day. Thankfully our son wasn't in it at the time. My essentials list would be minimal now but would definitely include a stroller in that list.

I only have one child and she is now 13 but if I had to do it all over again, I would have done it so differently. I had a baby registry because that is what I thought I was supposed to do and ended up with enough baby stuff to open a daycare. It was ridiculous for 1 child! Looking back, I could have done without 90% of those things! Craziness.

I love hand me downs, but learned my lesson about being clear about exchanges. When I had my daughter, my sister-in-law "gave" me all her baby girl things. She had two daughters, so there was a lot of stuff (including toddler and older kid sizes). I went through it all and gave away things I didn't think I would need. Then.... about a year later, she was pregnant again and asked for the things back! Apparently she intended to "lend" me the things, not give. I still feel anxious thinking about it... having to explain to her that I didn't keep it all. I ended up buying some things (mobile, etc) brand new to make up for it. So, some cautionary advice - make sure to ask whether things are "for keeps" or just "for now". :)

A laundry basket is a nice place for baby to sleep. You can put it in your bed or bring it downstairs. Just buy a pad for it and a fitted sheet. Make it cozy if you wish. Then when you are done with it just use it for laundry for the baby.

My boys were opposites. The one liked his bed, the one liked my bed. The one ate from the pump bottles, the other wanted gerber bottles. The one woke easily, the other I could vacuum under the bed. The one wanted the pacifier, the other didn’t. Now they are adults. One is a nerdy boy, the other artistic. The one likes pork, the other beef. It’s nice because I have favourite things for them and memories are affixed to each guy. A staple in our home was a playpen...been a few years! 😄

Thought of another one: sleepers. I know some busy mamas who have their newborns just live in sleepers, and that is totally fine. I didn't have a problem dressing them during the day in basic clothes (onesies, pants, socks), and have a few cuts outfits for going out. Infant clothes are designed to be comfortable and babies can sleep in anything, really. I never felt the need to dress them in pajamas for all their naps.

Please please please don't cosleep. Dawn and Diana, I adore you both. I watch your videos consistently and recommend your videos to others but as a public health nurse that works under the direction of a medical examiner, I know preventable infant deaths are most often related to unsafe sleep practices including cosleeping. I believe people cosleep because they love their babies so much, but please love them enough to let them sleep alone, in their crib with a fitted sheet and nothing else where they will learn to self soothe and you will know that you did all you could do to keep them safe.

Definitely needed more sleepers for my boys than just 5 in each size. That wouldn’t even last a day for them during the newborn to 3-6 month stages (0-3 months)! Also, we got a changing table never used it regularly. We had diapers and such with it, but generally used a waterproof pad on our sofa. Especially when baby number 2 came, we never used it! We had a combo crib/ changing table, and for baby number 2 the table was never set up.

Cloud Island PJs from Target are the BEST! They have inverted zippers so you unzip bottom to top so only the legs/belly are exposed when changing diaper so baby can stay warm! Also, they have the fold over sleeves in all the sizes! My baby would scratch herself as she slept and sometimes it'd wake her up. So everytime she goes down for a nap or to bed we cover her hands and she sleeps so much better that way. (I'm not a big Target person, I learned about the PJs from Jordan Page! She is about to have baby #7 and #8 anyday now so she's pretty much an expert lol 😍) I actually really love cloth diapers solely for the fact that there are next to no blowouts with them!!! 🎉🎉🎉 Love My Baby brand on Amazon is the cheapest I've found for quality pocket diapers with snaps. I loved them. Rock n plays have been recalled. Many babies have died in them. Some through misuse and others from the babies with lack of head control being able to move their head to have a clear airway. 💔 I LOVE our bouncer! We have one that takes batteries and bounces the baby 🎉 game changer! I love my baby ktan wrap! Just used it today actually when we were out and about and my baby needed a nap. We LOVE sleep sacks! We're big on the fleece ones from Carters (Walmart use to sell them too but then stopped for some reason?). It's a wearable blanket! Because it is highly recommended to have zero blankets in the sleep area with baby per SIDS prevention guidelines. If you need a crib bumper try the mesh ones, they are breathable if baby gets their face all up in it. I don't think stores even sell non mesh bumpers anymore (thank goodness). Stroller that carseat can easily lock onto and then just be a regular stroller when you need it to be. I love the Baby Trend jogger one! It's price cheap but great quality, in my opinion. Bottle brushes are awesome for washing dishes other than just bottles too. Our second baby loves her mattress vibrator paddle thing we got off Amazon. Putting the carseat handle all the way down (behind baby) when it's in the car is extra protection incase of an accident. I know a lot of people leave it up incase of a roll over accident but you're more likely to get into a front, side, or back impact accident than a roll over. No rice cereal, it has arsenic in it. 😳 (No idea how they are allowed to be sold....) In a pinch an (empty) laundry basket makes a great bassinet! Invest in a good digital thermometer that you can touch to baby's forehead. Fanny packs can fit a little thing of wipes and a few diapers. I love using that when I don't need to bring the entire diaper bag along. I used it at Disney World/Universal for my then 2 year old when we lived in the area and would go a few times a week. It was awesome. Light weight, barely remembered it was there. Can hold other things too. Don't have to take it off to go on rides. I got a super cute one at Clair's and I love it.

I think we are done having babies, but I still enjoyed you two talk about this. I highly recommend a Mei Tai baby carrier, my third baby lived there and I only wish I already had one with our eldest. You can use it when they are a toddler also, they carried both on back and belly.
