Being first time parents can be an incredibly daunting experience. Becoming a parent at any point of one’s life is a daunting experience, but first time parenthood is outrageously convoluted with everyone around them telling them what to do and what not to do. While it may seem like useful advice, that is not always the case as these dos and don’ts tend to contradict each other. Some experienced parents may tell the first time parents to breastfeed and to make all of the baby food from scratch and avoid using diapers while others may tell the parents to never breastfeed, use the mass produced baby food, and to never, ever turn their backs on diapers. These parents, overwhelmed by the amount of information, are left wondering what is right and what is wrong. They cannot go to their own parents because they raised children in a completely different era. They also do not know which peer parent to listen to because they all make excellent points. Thus, these parents are forced to navigate the treacherous waters of first time parenthood with a very vague understanding of the multiple concepts of their baby’s needs. 

Babies, while small and adorable, are difficult to look after, especially if the parents have had the foresight of planning. Setting up a nursery, a crib, baby proofing the house, etc are things that first time parents know that they absolutely have to do. However, shopping appropriately for the baby is something that most new parents suffer with. They either get too much or not enough. They accidentally get the wrong thing in the right brand or the wrong brand in the right thing. In order to combat this, many experienced parents have started gifting first timers a baby start pack.
