How to Raise a Baby in a Small Apartment
Kids require a lot of things. Certainly there are people who can provide for their kids in a minimalistic way, and even if you abstain from buying any toys and keep clothes simple, you will still end up with more stuff then you've ever imagined.

When you have a small house, the sheer amount of things that babies need can quite frankly feel suffocating. With limited space, it's even more important to make some careful considerations when determining what to register for, where to put things, and what kind of home you want for your family.
