Top 5 "You Didn't Know You Needed" Items for New Moms

If you've looked at my blog roll (on the side) or a few of my previous posts, you know that I'm a Yummy Mummy Club fan. This week they're sharing some Top 5 lists: Top 5 Purse Essentials When You Have Kids, Top 5 Yummy Summer Reads, which I thought were great.

  • My stroller needs were going to be different from our nanny's
  • I didn't want to buy a new larger car to fit a stroller, nor could I afford one
  • I had to define and stick to a budget; and
  • I am a snob.
