When my best friend told me she was pregnant, I immediately went into baby mode. And when she asked me to be the godfather, I also went into parenting mode. I mean... the both of us equally had experience with babies, but never one that we would be responsible for... permanently.
Between the two of us, we pretty much didn't have it covered and the first thing we did was think about what kind of things she would need for her baby, besides all the fun outfits and toys that we were already plotting to buy. The reality was that we didn't really know what the best products or things to buy for this baby, so we enlisted the help of all our other friends who had previously undergone this same dilemma. Through them, and through our own trial and error system of testing the products, we compiled a list of what we believe to be the must have new parent baby products, and here it is, along with some very honest commentary from a newcomer.
