Top 20 Newborn Must Haves

Baby items have certainly changed in the last 5 years.  This time around I know what I really need and what not to waste money on.  I bought so many things for Peyton that weren’t even used one time.  I’d like to think I’m a little wiser with Harper.  Outside of clothing, I try to make sure everything I buy is a must have item.  I’m sharing our favorite newborn must-have items and why we love them.  We have every single item that I mention so you know it’s real.

On the Fringe

This week has been rough.  I had a cold last weekend and I guess I passed it on to Harper.  Her little coughs and sneezes hurt my soul.  But then her temperature started to rise and she became lethargic.  I took her to the pediatrician.  The doctor suspected she had a urinary tract infection.  Apparently baby girls can get them.  And it has nothing to do with dirty diapers (I clean my baby).  She gave her some antibiotics and I brought her home.  That night her temperature spiked again.  We were minutes away from heading to the emergency room.  Suddenly the fever broke.  First thing in the morning we were back at the doctors office getting blood drawn and shots.  My nerves have been a wreck!  Still waiting on some labs to come back.  I’m glad to report that my happy baby is back!  Praise God!  That’s been my week.  I thought I would end the week by sharing my new favorite sweatshirt with you.  It has fringe on it!
