Shopping for a baby can be an expensive—and overwhelming—affair. Stores, parenting magazines, and advertisements tend to promote every little pastel-colored item as the next best baby must-have.

Check out the slide show below for some items you really cannot do without.

    In my opinion baby cradles is one of the most important thing that every parents should have to buy after baby's birth because it will help to give baby a healthy sleep.
