I believe that I made it through my first two children without a lot of the must haves I've seen on other sites. If I'm honest, I'm now hoping to add some of these items to my shopping list for baby #3. I never had a rocking chair or glider, so there were a lot of nights breastfeeding standing up, sitting on my bed, and even trying to rock a baby to sleep just walking around. This time I'm hoping to be different. Also, I feel a baby swing, or rocker could be a good investment. just with 2 other demanding children, might be good to have somewhere for the little one to be safe. My older child ripped through the playpen mesh when his younger brother was in there, so now another playpen is needed and on my list.
