A. we bought a lot of crap when out first born came along. most of it was really not useful and we could easily do without. form what i remember, we should have bought maybe second hand crib and not a new one, all this miniature outfits were really expendable. the baby grows VERY fast. all kind of shoes- until the day he start walking, it's just a waste of time.
