Must Prepare Items Before the Baby Arrives

MUST PREPARE ITEMS BEFORE BABY ARRIVES

 

 

As you prepare to bring your sweet newborn baby at home, you may be asking yourself: “What does a baby really need in the first weeks at home?” The answer is, not much.

When you're a first-time parent, it can be tempting to buy a lot of baby stuff. It can be difficult to know for sure the newborn essentials you need. But remember that your little one will quickly grow out of his baby clothes.

 

To help guide you here's a list of what to buy for a newborn baby. Being prepared with the following items will get you through the first days and weeks without having to make any last-minute runs to the store or online purchases, and will ensure that your baby is comfortable, well-fed, and has everything they need.



Clothing

It’s best not to buy too many newborn clothing items because your baby will outgrow them at lightning speeds. At the same time, you will be going through lots of outfit changes, as newborn clothing can get messy, quickly.

 

What You Need:
  • 5-8 onesies, or other soft outfits, depending on how often you want to do laundry
  • 3-4 baby sleepers or sleep sacks
  • 5-7 pairs of baby socks
  • 1-2 newborn hats, depending on climate

Diapers

Diapers are an obvious newborn basic, yet choosing the best kind of diaper for your baby can actually feel confusing and stressful—who knew?! If you are torn between using cloth diapers or disposable, try to remember that at the end of the day, both have their pluses and minuses and doing what works for your family and your lifestyle is always the best choice. That said, many families do a combination of cloth and disposable, so you can try out both and see what you like best.

 

What You Need:
  • 2-3 packs of disposable diapers or enough cloth diapers for at least two days
  • 1-2 packs of disposable wipes or 12 cloth wipes
  • 1 bottle of diaper rash cream
  • A cloth-diaper detergent, if you will need to wash diapers
  • Waterproof pad for diaper changes

Bathing

For the first week or two, until your baby’s umbilical cord falls off, doctors recommend giving your baby a sponge bath.3 After that, you can bathe your baby daily or three times a week.

 

What You Need:
  • 3-5 baby washcloths
  • 1-2 hooded towels; adult towels will work, too
  • 1 baby sponge
  • 1 bottle of baby bath wash
  • 1 bottle of baby lotion
  • A baby bathtub

Grooming/First Aid

At first, you don’t need to stock your cabinets with a ton of baby grooming products or a full-fledged first aid kit. You will definitely need a way to trim those baby nails (they grow so fast!). You’ll also need to be able to take your baby’s temperature, and clean snot out of their nose, should the need arise. Babies can be very stuffy at first!

 

What You Need:
  • Baby nail clippers
  • Digital thermometer
  • Medicine dropper
  • Bulb syringe/nasal aspirator

Bedding and Sleep Needs

Whatever bed you choose for your newborn (crib, cradle, bassinet, co-sleeper), it is recommended by the American Academy of Pediatrics that your baby sleep in the same room with you for the first 6-12 months of life.

Although the AAP doesn’t recommend sharing a bed with your baby, some breastfeeding mothers will fall asleep with their baby in their bed at some point, so it’s wise to keep a safe bedsharing item at home.

 

What You Need:
  • Crib, cradle, bassinet, co-sleeper, or other safe sleep space for baby.
  • Baby bed mattress or fitted sheets
  • 1 waterproof crib mattress cover, unless your crib mattress is already fully sealed, or a waterproof pad to lay under the crib sheet

Feeding Supplies

If you are breastfeeding, you don’t need much more than your breasts—and the contact information for a good lactation consultant or breastfeeding support group should you encounter a breastfeeding challenge.

If you plan on formula feeding, it’s good to discuss formula brands and types with your doctor as well as how much formula to have on hand when you bring your baby home.

However, to feed your baby, you will need a lot of burp cloths. Trust us.

 

What You Need:
  • 10 burp cloths
  • 5-8 bottles, if you're bottle-feeding
  • A bottle brush, if you'll need to wash bottles
  • Breastfeeding pillow, nursing pads, and nipple cream
  • Breast pump

Gear and Furniture

You do need a way to transport your baby around. Car seats are mandatory, and hospitals won’t let you leave unless you have a properly installed car seat in your car. Beyond that, a stroller or a baby carrier is awesome and necessary for many of us.

Many of us also opt for much more than that—a changing table, dresser, nursery gliders, toy bin, bouncy seat, baby swing, etc.—and decorating the baby’s room can be a highlight. But if you wish, you can hold off on those things until your baby is older, and you have a better idea of what they truly need.

 

What You Need:
  • Car seat
  • Baby Bouncer/ Swing (optional)
