    There are so many things I could just list regret buying. I bought too too many socks, she never wore them after 2 months, mittens, hats, loads of sweater, jackets, pants. My daughter is mostly in onesies 🤦🏻‍♀️ I’m glad my daughter took the Dr. Brown bottles but I regret getting the sterilizer machine. Also I wished I had her on a different bottle, too many parts to wash! Dockatot, boppy nursing pillow, lounger, owlet. All useless and a waste of money. I also got her a ergo 360 carrier. I believe we only used 3-4 times.

      It's so hard to know what you'll actually use and won't! Every baby is soo different. We will know better next time!! ;)

    All those pillowed sleepers are so unsafe, it scares me seeing how many moms swear by it across YT. They put it in bassinets and cribs and just move on. Unless you are going to watch them the entire time they are in them they are useless and very unsafe. I am surprised they have yet to be recalled, I believe there has been deaths because of them. Yet they recalled the Rock n Plays.

      I'm shocked they haven't been recalled too!! They make me super nervous!! Don't worry, I removed the crib bumper as soon as she started sleeping in her crib!! Thank you for looking out! I'm all about safe sleep!

    There’s other people that make loungers for the baby’s like a doc a tot. But I’m not buying one

    Dokatots are banned in Canada you are right! I am Canadian and I cannot buy one because there are safety concerns even if I go on the web sight being form Canada it’s banned to Canadians!

      Doc a tots are just too expensive for what they are and if you do want to upgrade to a larger size it’s almost 400 dollars, I did get a doc a tot knock off from Etsy I got 2 for like 120 which is way better than just 1 actual doc a tot my son is 17 1/2 months and he likes his and my daughter is 4 months and she will sleep through the night in hers, but if I never found the cheaper one I would never buy a doc a tot.

        With my son I regretted buying pacifiers and swaddles. He'd spit the paci out and scream if you swaddled him.

          oh no!! My daughter loves her swaddles! Every baby is soo different it's hit or miss with a lot of products.

        I think the doc a tot should be illegal everywhere

        Crib bumpers are also a suffocation hazard, just so people know. It doesn't matter if the package says "breathable." If it's mesh, okay, maybe, but the mesh ones have really no purpose anyway, the baby's head isn't going to get between the crib bars, so what's the point of those? Just, cloth/soft/fluffy crib bumpers (including those REALLY pretty braided ones) are a suffocation/SIDS risks too.

          I agree, 8 years ago I lost my baby with 2 months old, from SIDS. she was sleeping in her crib and she rolled over her tummy 😔 Then I have another baby and right now I am pregnant again.

          I agree! I have ours taken out of the crib. Total waste of $$.

        FINALLY someone on Youtube talked about the DockATot being a suffocation risk. Thank you so much for that. So few people either know or care or whatever and it scares me O_O

          I feel the same way about dock-a-tot very scary. I used a moses basket but my 6 month old loved his boppy we still use it

          Susie's Tips I’m so sorry for your loss. My heard breaks for you. I can’t imagine.

          @Meghan Meade You wouldn't believe the amount of people that I've heard say they know it's a suffocation hazard (that and the Rock N Plays and other similar stuff) but that the baby just sleeps so much better in it.
          It BLOWS MY MIND. I'm just like... how can your sleep be worth that kind of risk? It's one thing if you have no idea, but if you KNOW and you do it anyway... just... what the heck is wrong with people??

          @Susie's Tips I'm so sorry for your loss. I lost my first baby (pregnant with my second now, 33 weeks) in the early part of my second trimester last year. And that was horrible enough, I can't imagine what you went through :'( I know it was a while back (saw your other comment that it was 8 years ago) but I'm praying for you none the less. <3

        Huh, thanks for the heads up and sharing your experience with these products! Might make some changes to my registry now...

          I’m going to be a first time Mom in July. I agree with a lot of these. Most of them aren’t even on my registry lol. If it wasn’t for me watching all my baby cousins growing up, I wouldn’t know nothing. That co sleeper doesn’t even look safe to me. I will be using a cheap baby monitor too. I’m not worried about shoes or a robe. I got 2 brands of paci’s. 1 pack of AVENT cause I know that’s what the hospital is going to give him and 1 pack of MAM just in case he don’t like the AVENT ones. I got 2 brands of bottles. The Tommy Tippee and the MAM. Cause like you said you never know what they will like. I would like to have options for him.

            It sounds like you have it down pat!! It's so nice that you had your baby cousins to learn what to buy/what not to buy!! I've heard great things about the MAM pacis!

          Our son still doesn’t wear shoes and he is almost a year haha! We wasted money on stuff like a baby robe too! At least we will be more prepared for the next baby 🤣

            yess shoes are so unnecessary! They totally just kick them off!
