Everything You Need For Your New Baby And More

This list comprises of everything you need for your new baby, where to get it, and even more vital information including but not limited to safety precautions and tips. Keep in mind this list is from an experienced Newborn Care Specialist.

Wash cloths: You will use a lot of these as they are good for spit up and bath time. The best ones to get are the cheapest ones you can find. They are thin and do the trick. I think you can even get them at the dollar store.

canada goose Bath towels: It is a pain getting wet from those thin baby towels. You are going to want to get some thicker towels that are baby size. They carry them at Target. They are basically just mini adult towels. canada goose

Baby Soap: Aveeno! Aveeno has products that are much more natural and gentle on baby’s skin. Johnson and Johnson are alright but they have a lot of chemicals that you can avoid by using Aveeno.

Bath tub: Bathing baby can either be wonderful or it can make your back hurt like a bitch. The best way to bathe baby is to just bathe them in the sink. I hate having the separate baby bath tub and I’ll tell you why. They are slippery so baby can go under pretty quickly, they are huge, and canada goose outlet online uk you have to drain them. I like the seats that look like bouncers because they fold in half and your baby stays still in them and are supported. They are just mesh. You can get them at Babies R Us.

Lotion: Baby’s skin is delicate, a nice lotion will help to keep their skin moist.

Baby Emery boards: (they are square and yellow and are perfect for their little nails)

Baby Sling or Carrier: You DO NOT want one of those $20 canada goose outlet uk fake ones from Kmart because babies are heavy and your back will start hurting very quickly. canada goose outlet The two brands that come to mind are the moby wrap and Ergo Baby as well as baby Bjorn. I know you are thinking, well heck those are expensive. Yes, but canada goose outlet london uk ebay and craigslist are wonderful resources for finding these cheaper. You may not even want a baby oidit is nice not to have so much stuff to lug around.

Car Seats and strollers: I know you are thinking, oh great, so many to choose from and they are all so expensive and how do you even know which one to choose. Alright so car seats are tricky. Car seats are also one of the most important things you need for your baby. Shoot me a message with your email if you are unsure of which to get and I can send you in the right direction and give you an individual suggestion. One car seat could be good for someone, but canada goose outlet winnipeg not right for you. Same goes for strollers.

A lunch box for bottles: Make sure to get ice packs too.

Cribs/furniture: So furnishing the nursery is expensive. To help keep down on costs, you should go to Ikea. You can get cribs as low as $80 and you can get dressers and changing tables as well. Remember to get the crib mattress! If you are getting a used crib make sure that the slats are no more than 2 3/8″ apart as these are the new safety standards.

cheap Canada Goose Rocking chair: These are a must have. The best canada goose outlet location place to get them is on craigslist. You can find great deals. Just make sure they are the mommy ones with lots of cushions and an ottoman to put your feet up and you will be all set. cheap Canada Goose

Sound machine: This will be a life saver. Babies love any kind of white noise. You can purchase a little machine or you can download songs off of itunes, burn canada goose shop uk them onto a CD and use them in any player. A good product is called “Rock a bye baby” they are CD’s that are made from real songs and turned into instrumental versions to help babies sleep.

Bedding: I think bedding is really special. Get the cheap crib and splurge a little if you can on bedding. It is a nesting thing.

Baby monitors: If your baby is going to sleep in a separate room, you should use a monitor in case they wake up. Moms these days like canada goose outlet ontario to be able to see their baby on a video monitor but as long as you hear them, it doesn’t matter what kind of technology it has. I would just go for one that works.

Canada Goose Parka Humidifier: You will need one of these in canada goose outlet eu the winter. If your baby will be going to daycare prepare for lots of colds. Vapor rub on the bottoms of their feet and on their chest does wonders. Canada Goose Parka

Hamper: Easiest thing to do is to just get a laundry basket and fill it up. It might not look as good but it is easier.

canada goose uk shop Crib sheets: 100% cotton. You will need 3. canada goose uk shop

Mobile: Babies enjoy them and it is just nice to have.

Canada Goose Jackets Diaper changing pad: wonderful things. They make some nice minky covers to go over them too. Canada Goose Jackets

Waterproof pads: These are great for on the changing pad (if you have a boy) and they are also great under the sheets where your baby will be laying their head in case they puke. You will need 3 of these.

Diaper Genie: You don’t need one of these but it keeps the smell out of the house.

Wipes: Mustela has some great wipes that smell good too. I would suggest you put anything mustela on your registry as it is more expensive. For wipes other than mustela, whatever works. If your child has a problem with scents, get unscented. A wipe warmer is an added luxury that keeps baby from crying.

Diaper bag: You really could use canada goose outlet factory anything as a diaper bag, but a great item that could go on your registry is a Ju Ju be diaper bag. I swear I could spill anything in this bag and it will come right out, no smell, no stain, no stickies. Best company ever. They even come with so many pockets and a memory foam diaper pad for on the go.
