I was in my teens when I became pregnant and I was determined not to be a "statistic". The timing of the pregnancy, if anything, made me more
determined to do everything right but the problem was that I didn't have a clue as to what the absolute necessities were much less how to decorate for a newborn. Unfortunately, there was nobody in my own family to talk to and I didn't feel comfortable asking other mothers for help because I felt they would judge me.
When my baby's nursery was being decorated, money was scarce. Not only did I
need baby furniture and gear; I had no furniture or appliances, nothing. During this time, I got to know the ladies at thrift stores within a 30 mile radius very well. 99% were helpful but then there was that one (ahem) lady that put me down and said I was too young to be having a baby.
Why would she judge me rather than offer her support? Who knows...but I wish that I could find and thank her for being nasty because without her snarky attitude Unique Baby Gear Ideas might not have been here to help YOU right now.
After much trial and error I designed my baby's small room in such a way that it not only served our needs but it was also
pretty darn cute! My baby and I did just fine in spite of it all and even managed to have fun. But after what I went through, I decided that I would build a website that would provide support and encouragement for other women with questions about how to make their baby's first room functional and attractive. I called the website Unique Baby Gear Ideas.
This website is for mothers of all ages and income levels. You will find no judgements or criticism here whether you are in your teens and broke or over 40 and having your first baby after spending years building your career and your bank account.
Between myself, moms and dads who visit and contribute to Unique Baby Gear
Ideas on a regular basis and those who stop by occasionally to comment and
share pictures...this site is filled with ideas for the nursery as well as
lots of other stuff that will be of interest to pregnant ladies and new moms.
Thanks for stopping by and I hope that you find all the information that you
need. The only thing that I ask is that if you see a young mother or mother-to-be that is having trouble that you please remember to "do unto others".
