If you're a new parent or parent to be, congratulations! Both Rachel and I are mothers and we love babies. We hope this guide helps you navigate the surprisingly simple world of babies, which advertisers have overcomplicated.
Babies don’t need much and what they do need can easily be found used. Babies have been around for a lot longer than Target and Amazon. Before there were bottle warmers and car seat mirrors, babies – and their parents – managed just fine. Remember, everything you buy or use comes with a footprint – from the materials, to the manufacturing, to the shipping – and the smaller the footprint, the better.
So, what does a baby actually need? It's pretty simple - check out our simple guide below to keep baby healthy and happy without going overboard.
