Having a baby in your house is nothing more than your dreams come true. Having an angel in your home, smiling and playing and sleeping with you has so much positive effect on your mind as well as body. However, there should be a specific checklist or baby essentials, which you should make ready before the arrival of your new guest.
While there is a significant misconception that marketing for your newborn baby should start after its birth, it’s not true. You should be ready with your baby essentials some week before the arrival of your angel so that by the time your baby is in the house, you are not confused about what to do. Well, there are some essentials which you can start buying after the newborn’s arrival.
Let us look at some of the primary baby essentials for a newborn kid.
Breastfeeding Baby Essentials
1- For Breastfeeding, your newborn choose the perfect cloth such as nursing bras, nipple, and nipple cream, which will protect both the mother’s as well as the kid’s skin.
2- Use sterilizers to disinfect the nipple, mother’s cloth as well as the newborn’s cloth before and after breastfeeding each time.
Bedding Baby Essentials
1- The newborn should always sleep with mom and dad, especially for the first year as they are quite vulnerable during this time. The newborn needs attention, especially of his/her mom throughout the day.
2- While bedding your newborn kid, use a lightweight crib or Moses Basket. Avoid using a fluffy blanket as they can cause discomfort to your kid. Instead uses thin sheets with a double layered pillow for extra protection to your baby while choosing the blanket to make sure that it is breathable.
3- Use of mattress protectors or quick dry sheets is always necessary to keep your baby dry and comfortable and make his/her sleeping beautiful and sound.
4- Small Mosquito Nets are best to keep your baby away from the irritable bites of mosquito.
Diapers used for newborn babies should be-
1) Of Cotton Material
2) Should be disposable
Along with diapers, one should also buy rash cream for protecting the baby’s skin and wet wipes to clean the poo and pee of your baby.
1) While choosing clothes for your newborn, make sure that the garments are comfortable, cotton, and have loads of space for air to pass through. Keep in mind that your newborn needs comfort not fancy clothes.
2) One more suggestion while buying clothes for newborns is that, do not overbuy clothes. Newborn tend to grow very quickly, so most of the clothes will be wasted after a few months.
Bathing Baby Essentials should be different from the ones you use. There are special care bathing products for children, which includes oil, soap, shampoo, and towel as well. One should strictly use that. Towels should be smooth so that they do not irritate the skin of your newborn.
These are some baby essentials for newborn kids, which should be in your priority list before your baby arrives in your house.
