Baby Items

I have created this page to help track all the gifts I have been receiving, as well as figure out what I still need. This page will also help those that want to know what I currently have or need and might be able to help out. Because we’ll only be in Australia until the baby is about 5-9 weeks old, this means we are keen to cut down on items or borrow stuff for the short term. Some things we’ll obviously need as soon as we return into the country though, but then we’ll need to consider storage.

Thanks to those who have already offered to lend me stuff and those who’ve already given me gifts. It’s really appreciated and it’s been amazing who those who’ve helped me, especially that this has been a bit of a difficult time for me!
