I never got the hang of the ring slings, but I'm a slight, short, person. The baby always ended up head-down, and one memorable time, almost flipped out of the ring sling and into the outhouse toilet before I caught him. I've used an Ergo carrier since then and highly recommend it. The stretchy wraps that parents use look really good. A stroller with big wheels is really great for naps on the garden.
We didn't use baby food, high chairs, or bibs. A cloth napkin with a cloths pin is always easy to find, baby sits on our lap, and a little adult food mushed up with a fork is great for first food. Nourishing Traditions author Sally Fallon has great suggestions for first food. Our babies started eating when they could handle food and were reaching for it from our plates.
I used cloth squares for diapers. Later I had 12 fitted diapers and used the squares as back-up and washed every day. That's the minimum number with a dryer just in case. Double without a dryer.
A sheepskin is lovely and if washable, will be used a long time.
Janet Lansbury Elevating Child Care on Facebook is great to monitor to learn respectful, effective, communication. Kids don't need much. They are built to find just about everything interesting.
Except an approved car seat. They need one of those!
