Thanks so much for all the opinions!
I will definitely delete just about all the clothes. Yeah, I know people will just buy what they think is cute for clothes, but I figured I would attempt to point them in the direction of the basics (onesies and sleep n plays) in the first few sizes. I'm definitely not attached to them, so they are as good as gone.
Thanks for the thoughts on mattress pads. I actually work as an infant caregiver at a daycare center, and now that I think about it, mattress pads for infants just seem really silly...just an extra layer to wash! Ha!
I think I'm going to leave the books; the reason being that I will buy just about any that anyone else doesn't buy. Between work and my nieces and nephews I have read almost all of them and so I know that I want them all. Some of the only ones I haven't read are the train books, and those are a must because my DH is a railroad nut, lol. :)
As far as burp cloths, I am thinking that I can use the larger size of plain pre-fold diapers until LO is big enough to wear them as diapers. Hopefully, by then he won't be spitting up too much. Crossing my fingers on that one!
I've not been planning to swaddle, but what I'm hearing is that swaddle blankets are nice to have anyway?
I was actually thinking I should add a carseat cover, so I appreciate the suggestions there.
Thanks again for all the helpful suggestions! I appreciate it!
