2 – Before I had a baby I never really gave other people’s babies that much notice.  However when I would shop with my daughter I was shocked at the number of people that will come right up to the stroller and get all touchy or just way too close.  You never really think it will happen until it does and you are completely caught off guard and freaked out by stranger germs!  Plan ahead with carseat cover which basically say “don’t touch my baby” so you don’t have to.

5 – You have so much to worry about that having a good quality baby monitor is a must.  Instead of standing over the baby every 2 seconds, it helps to see them while you get other things done.  Love the night vision too so you can stalk the baby during the night.
