Must Haves For Your Baby’s Needs Review
When we first had our baby, nobody taught us (properly) what must-haves
we should be getting. We end up buying the items one by one whenever the need
arise. Which was, of course, quite tedious and such an inconvenience? You have 9
months to prepare for your little one, so there should have been no excuse over
missing over needed items.
First in your list should be baby clothes. Lots of them. Not because you wish
to play dress-up with your little one. Babies tend to have a lot of accidents like
spewing after a feed, leaking diapers, and so on. Plan to have at least 3-5 changes
a day. If you’re doing the laundry by batches and daily, then it is definitely a good
idea to have lots of baby clothes handy.
Have you made a choice whether to use cloth or disposable diapers? You
need to have at least a dozen cloth diapers if you wish to use them, as well as a
diaper pail that can contain the smell. Have in mind also some wipes for your little
one, as well as baby powder or petroleum jelly to prevent diaper rash. You can
have a diaper caddy to get things convenient for you. Some suggest that you have
a Diaper Genie II to contain the smell of your disposable diapers. It wraps your
used diaper in plastic and seals in the smell. If you’re planning on a lot of
traveling, have a diaper bag handy. Skip Hop diaper bags are just big enough to
hold in your baby items, yet stylish enough so as not to cramp your style. Unless
you tell them, people will not know you’re carrying a diaper bag at all.
When you take your little one out for a walk, or doing household chores, a
baby sling is just perfect for you. This way you have your hands free to wash the
dishes, cook dinner, fold clothes, and even eat comfortably whenever your little one
becomes all fussy and irritable. You can have a stroller if you need it, but when you
get that baby sling, you’ll forego that stroller.
Have a set of feeding bottles, 6-10 pieces would be enough. You may be
planning on breastfeeding, but there may be circumstances when you won’t be able
to do so. We planned on breastfeeding our baby, but because she was in the
neonatal intensive care unit for 10 days, she got used to being bottle fed. We could
no longer train her to breastfeed for I have ceased producing adequate amount of
milk necessary to sustain her. We had a huge problem over cleaning and preparing
the bottles for we only had 3 handy. You can have a choice of boiling them in a
large pot, or buying a sterilizer.
Get the right-sized crib for your little one. You can start with a bassinet for
the first month. A big crib will be overwhelming for someone who’s been living in a
confined environment for 9 months. A mobile on your baby’s crib would be a great
addition to help stimulate his vision and eye coordination. Leave heavy blankets for
the time being as well as stuffed toys and heavy pillows for the first years of your
baby. A swaddle blanket may be good enough to keep your baby warm. You can
try this Miracle Blanket to keep your little one comfortable without the fear of
getting him suffocated.

Buy a little tub for your little one to bathe on. You have a selection of sizes
to choose from. What’s great about a tub is that you can bathe the baby inside the
room for fast changing. Or you can buy a baby lounger that you can use to prop
your baby while you bathe him in an adult-sized bath tub.
These would be the basic items that you may want for your little one. Make
sure that you have them when you bring your little one home from the hospital so
you can just enjoy taking care of him without hassling over a lacking item.
