items you shouldn't buy before the baby is born
You know the feeling,
you are glowing with pregnancy and you insist your baby must
have everything! But unfortunately, buying everything can
break the bank, especially when your baby might be the one

away. Babies definitely have preferences! Your budget is better
off to buy one or two different bottles and see if your baby
has a preference. Then stock up as needed!
