A New Mom and An Over Consumer: Beware of over consuming for your new baby.

Having a baby is so exciting and there are so many neat and fun products out there that all say they are must haves for a new baby.... But how many of them do you really NEED?

We live in a society that glorifies consumption. Ads surround us, commercials are everywhere, and on the Internet you will find a ton of sites telling you that you need their product.....

This is especially true for new parents! When you go to register for your baby shower there are so many products that are awaiting you that's it is almost overwhelming. From strollers, cars eats, swings, bassinets, and cradles, to cribs, pack n plays, rock n plays, mobiles, pumps, and changing tables....

The list continues forever...... And while it is fun to get all of these things for your new baby.... You need to be cautious not to fall into the trap of over consuming.....

I fell into this trap. When I was first pregnant I got so excited seeing all of the cute innovative baby stuff and I began researching it all and googling "baby must haves". I became consumed. I spent hours online researching every stroller ever made and hours on Craigslist searching for deals.... 

There's nothing wrong with getting essentials for your new baby. But when it gets in the way of focusing on Christ.... That's a problem. When you are so sidetracked researching and buying baby stuff that you aren't spending time in Gods word... That's a problem! And that is the trap. Once you lose focus on staying plugged into the bible.... it makes it much harder to get that focus back! Because one product leads to another and another and before you know it, it's 2am and you haven't even opened up your bible or spent any time in prayer. 

If you are expecting a baby, try to discipline yourself not to get over consumed by it all. There are a few essentials that you will NEED but at the end of the day, everything else is what we just plain WANT. 

See my post on what I actually needed and used and what I wasted money on.
