"What baby gear do you need for a newborn?"
When you're welcoming a new baby into your world, it can be really overwhelming. After all, the first thing that comes to mind is preparing for when they come home from the hospital and figuring out what exactly you'll need in order to take care of them during those early months - diapers? A crib? Bottles or formula milk?
Welcoming babies needs starts with making sure they are healthy but also ensuring that we have everything needed on hand before their arrival so as not one second goes by where our little ones don't feel loved. With this list below outlining some basic items every family should prepare themselves for when expecting a newborn, there's no reason why anyone has too worry about being unprepared!
When it comes to your baby's nursery, you have plenty of options. Some parents like having their infants in a cradle or bassinet for the first few months before moving them into cribs as they get bigger and can't fit comfortably on adult beds anymore. Safety is always key when choosing any type of furniture, so make sure that whatever kind you choose meets all modern safety requirements including not more than 2 3/8 inches between slats if space allows for no more than one piece per room due to lack of storage space
Make sure you get the right mattress for your baby. Pick out a back-supporting, not too soft, fire retardant one and make sure to measure the crib before purchasing it so that no space is left uncovered where they could find their head or limb caught in an awkward position.
Diaper time is an important part of your baby's routine. The first few weeks can be unpredictable and messy, but the supplies you need are all available from Walmart. Diapers come in a variety size to make sure they fit perfectly for each stage as well as gender (boy or girl). Changing pads protect against germs and potential leaks so it’s best if one hangs on every changing table surface at home—especially though these pad change color when wet! Disposable bags mean less mess around diapers with easy disposal; simply tie them up securely before tossing into any trash receptacle. Finally, keeping wipes close by will guarantee that spills don't become stains while also saving laundry loads due to dirty clothes piling up after diaper changes.
1. Buy a lot of onesies, socks, and undershirts
2. Get some sleepers or gowns for the baby to wear at night
3. Get matching outfits for mom and dad so they can take pictures of their new family member
4. Pack up all your old clothes that don't fit anymore in case you need them later on down the line
5. Consider buying a few more blankets than what is needed because babies love to cuddle with them during nap time
6. Make sure you have plenty of diapers on hand - it's always good to be prepared!
7) If you're breastfeeding, make sure you get nursing bras before giving birth; if not, buy some nursing tops or dresses from a store like Motherhood Maternity (or something similar) so that when your milk comes in after birth it will still be easy for you to feed your baby breastmilk without too much hassle
Give your baby a safe space to play and relax with these additional items:
A change table,
rocking chair for feeding or swaddling,
rocker/swaddle blanket (for the floor),
happy baby balm (We recommend the product "Happy Baby Balm" by "Calmamama".)
