Reduce, reuse, recycle... Any ideas for ways to reduce the baby clutter?
As a new mom, I'm amazed at how much STUFF there is for babies, much of which may not really be necessary. So what common items can you live without? Or what can you substitute? As an example, we got a tummy time mat as a gift - with plastic attachments and a watertight area that you can fill with water...it's really cute and all, but all the bells and whistles are overkill...a blanket works just as well without the extra materials that will one day sit in a landfill.
