Let’s talk about that baby spy gear. Baby monitors are all the rage and they can do many different things, depending on your needs. You can get little “analog audio monitors” (baby walkie-talkies), or upgrade to video monitors.

The amount of baby stuff that is out there can blow a new parents mind! My advice would be to start with the necessities; diapers, baby wipes, cute clothes, a pacifier (what kind? You will have to decide for yourself), and nursing supplies or bottles and formula. After that you can upgrade to all kinds of crazy toys, teething rings, play mats, spy gear, and later, when your child is moving towards solid food, yummy food in pouches. All the baby stuff that is available now days can seriously blow your mind. It is fun to look at and shop for, but most of all, parents need to remember that babies need our love and attention. Nothing you can buy at the store is meant to totally replace a parent’s love and affection. All this baby stuff is there to make raising kids more manageable and enjoyable, but we can’t neglect our responsibility to really “raise” our kids to be wonderful human beings. Raising children is such a great experience and it is our chance to nurture children who care about what we care about and will act as we do. Use the baby stuff, but don’t forget who you are raising. Use this opportunity to teach and nurture and love. Our children are our legacy.
