    Did not use the Velcro swaddle wraps at all. Had way too many tiny cotton baby hats!

    The stuffed animals and the moses basket I received have just been set aside and not used! I had too many baby mittens and socks for some reason!!

    I didn’t get to use the Wipes warmer at all. I got too many clothes but thankfully they were in different sizes so I could use them later on.

    I used the Moses basket to store all the stuffed animals. I also had way too many receiving blankets, baby hats, and bibs.

    We didn’t get to use the changing table that was gifted to us. Instead we used the Baby Play Yard that has a napper and changer. We also had too many of baby clothes and accessories.

    We did not use the newborn feeding bottle sets since our LO was being breastfeed. We had too many of baby swaddlers.

    There were several things I found I didn’t need; the wipes warmer, the diaper genie, the jogging stroller. Than there were the things I have found to be tremendously helpful? Our swing by Fisher Price, Aquafor, a wide selection of “lovies,” or baby blankets.

    But you know what is absolutely necessary? My incredible, healthy, beautiful babies… And their Daddy. :)

    (And that swing. That’s a keeper.)
