    Default What do you regret buying?

    Hi all, I'm just starting to embark on buying for our first baby. There are so many things out there that I wonder how much is necessary?

    Are their things that you bought that are still sitting in their box? I decided to go a birth to 4yo carseat instead of capsule etc. Its not purely from a money saving point of view - just a lack of storage!! Any tips on what not to buy?!

    Change table. I never used it at all and it just became a junk collector. To change hubs I would use the foam mat on the floor or use the bed

    When buying things for baby the essentials are: somewhere for me to sleep, something for me to eat, something for me to wear, something to keep me warm and feel secure. A carseat is essential to get me home and I will probably like walks in a pram.
    The rest is all 'nice' to have.

    Our sling. DD hated it. I wish I had have gotten a decent carrier straight away and skipped the sling.

    I wouldn't say I regret buying this, but the baby monitor with the breathing detector mat. I use the sound monitor all the time but never used the breathing pad since DS was in a bassinet next to my bed for 6+ months. Should've saved my $ and just got sound monitor.

    Baby Bjorn carrier. DS hated it and I found it uncomfortable (wish I had bought the ergo earlier than waiting till DS was 8 months).
