Just like all first-time parents, we are being bombarded with information about how we need to parent and it’s coming from everyone: our doctors, family, friends, and now people I have never met. It’s interesting because some people that I haven’t spoken to in years have been reaching out and messaging me as well. Most of the conversations end up discussing things that I can and cannot do during pregnancy and things that I need to do to or not to, to make sure baby is healthy when they’re here. What I noticed was that there’s a lot of advice around buying more things for babies. Every problem is solved by another purchase.
