For first time parents, and especially pregnant mothers, the most exciting thing about going to be mothers is to browse through baby stores and find those tiny, adorable mittens and booties.
I still remember how exciting it is to squeal and jump over every little thing because finally, that day arrive when I can have my own baby. Being first time parent, I splurge a lot of money on buying many stuffs, not knowing that some of them are not necessities.
So, if you are the first time parent, do find some peer support and ask around before you do your shopping. You can find some useful forums over at the link I provided above. You will also find baby stores as well. Good luck and happy shopping!
