As exciting as it is to welcome a new baby into the world, it also means that you’ll need a lot of items to properly care for that new bundle of joy. It is easy to forget these items when there is so much going on in your life, but this handy list ensures that nothing is forgotten. These items are those you’ll need in abundance, so be sure that plenty is on hand.
You’ll use a lot of baby sleepers and will toss many in the trash as baby vomit and diarrhea stain them. Purchase the packs of sleepers and have three to four on hand at all times. You can never have too many sleepers.
It seems that bottles have the same reputation as socks and they always come up missing. Baby’s favorite will be the first to disappear. But, do not despair. Make sure that you are prepared for any situation by having extras on hand.
If you are a first-time parent, it will take losing the pacifier only once to learn that you need three or four (or a dozen) available to you. Toss a few in the diaper bag, one in the glove box, and a couple at daycare, too.
It is amazing how many diapers you will use during the first year of baby’s life. And, let’s hope that potty training goes well because those training pants are just as expensive. Make sure that you are well prepared with plenty of diapers and wipes, too.
This is certainly only a very partial list of things that baby needs, but are among the most important. Make sure that you are prepared when you bring baby home from the hospital.
