What IS all this stuff?

This is going to be a fairly long, drawn-out post that most folks won’t be interested in. However anyone who feels like chiming in is more than welcome! Or to put it more bluntly...

For the love of God... Help!!!

This is the new parent’s checklist that they give you at Babies R Us when you register. It’s great, assuming that you know what they’re talking about. If you’ve never done this before it leaves you wondering what the heck this stuff is, what it’s for, how you use it, and if you really need it or not. Like I said yesterday, I figure there are three general categories: 1) stuff you need; 2) stuff that’s nice to have, but you don’t need it; 3) stuff that’s just stuff. I’m putting in the list, with my comments/questions in italics. I thought about removing the items that are already taken care of, but then decided that someone might think it was actually missing.

"Eh?" is my shorthand for "what the heck is this?"
