A First-Time Father's List of Baby Items.

Gary Peterson
The list author says: "I became a father for the first time in early October (08). It was a big baby boy (9 1/2 lbs.) and a very interesting experience. It's the first child for either of us and it's a somewhat overwhelming experience. We've been buying stuff by the SUV load and the mailman brings more every day. Some items have worked out fine, others were a bust. I'm putting this list together of the items I've reviewed, together with a few comments and the star rating I gave each. The list is primarily for babies from birth to 12 months old. Check out the reviews. If you do, leave a vote or a comment. That's the only way I have of knowing if anyone has visited."
