Impulse shopping goes to a whole new level when you are about to have your first child. Almost every first-time parent buys in excess out of fear of not knowing what a baby will need. We went looking for answers to the many questions we had.

We also sought some useful advice on how to avoid spending excessive amounts of money on baby things we probably would never use.
