oh the things that clutter my mind

just a few months ago I would be sitting home and thinking about the pair of shoes I needed to buy, or what curtains I should get, or what vacations Jarrett and I wanted to take next year. Now? Well now I'm consumed by baby purchases. So many choices. So many opinions. And don't get me wrong, I'm quite happy to have these decisions to make.

For those former or current brides, you know how everyone had an opinion about your wedding? Well think that x 1,000,000,000. You get the point. Except now...everyone is an expert. And instead of admitting they made choices and some were right and some were wrong and every baby is different, it's a whole lot of nah, you don't need this and you SIMPLY HAVE to get that. And a lot of stares and judgments about your decisions. Yknow the ones you are making for YOUR baby?

And don't even get me started on the internet! I could get lost with the amount of stores and baby blogs out there. Maybe sometimes less information is more? I know, I'm ranting, but I can't help it. This is hard.

This weeks topic? Bottles. Which freaking bottles do I register for? Nevermind there are tons of brand choices, now they offer some that are better for gassy babies and others for babies having trouble transitioning from breast feeding. There are different nipple sizes... I mean for the love of god... how do I know what this little baby (the size of a lemon, BTW) will need?

So instead of deciding? I'm going upstairs to watch Teen Mom 2. I'll be sure to feel better about this situation after a little bit of that, right?

If anyone is in fact reading this. What did you choose?

...until next time.

  1. Dude all my preferences are on my blog. And I don't know shizer about bottles; Lucy wouldn't take them so I literally bought every bottle on the market. She was a boob-only type of girl.

    (However we mostly used the Medela stuff since it attaches to the pump, and then graduated on to Born Free, which we loved.)
