Shopping for a new baby is a special and exciting time. Enjoy this experience because you will remember it forever!
New mothers spend hours washing the new clothes, packing and re-packing the cupboards in anticipation. We’ve created a newborn checklist of the MUST haves for your beautiful baby. We hope that you enjoy this list!
You will need cotton bedding and a mattress that breathes. Rather wrap your baby in several layers of cotton blankets and don’t use fleece, as the baby can get too hot. Here’s a list of things you will need for bedtime
A cot so that the baby can sleep on her own
A breathable baby mattress (with holes in it)
A wedge to force your baby to sleep on her side
4 – 6 cotton receiving blankets
A dummy if your baby likes it
Most mothers like to breastfeed in the beginning of baby’s life. A healthy mother’s milk contains everything that baby needs to grow and not get sick. If you want to, you can keep bottles for when you are travelling or can’t feed the baby. Here’s what you’ll need
A tin of formula like NAN to use when you want to bottle-feed
4X new baby bottles
Milton or other sterilizing fluid to clean baby’s bottles from germs
A bottlebrush to wash inside the bottle
A cotton blanket or sling to cover the breast when feeding in public
4X burping towels for burping and carrying baby after a feed
There are other baby essentials you will need and things for every day care. We know that you want to make sure that baby has everything she needs
Cotton or disposable nappies
Wet wipes or clean washcloth for nappy changes
Nappy sterilizing bin and liners if you are using cloth nappies
A pram with shade to protect your baby from the weather
A nappy bag to keep everything when you are out with baby
Baby soap and shampoo to keep baby comfortable and clean
We hope that you liked this list. You should get advice from your doctor or clinic on other things you might need. Try lending some of these things from friends as you do not need these baby necessities for very long.
