But we’re here to simplify your journey, and we’ve got the ultimate checklist to keep you covered. Read on to see what you need, how much it costs, brands to get it from and once you’ve made your list, add it to your gift registry and have it gifted to you! It’s literally that simple… welcome to parenting 101!
