A new baby needs everything you can think of! In fact, it can be very expensive getting a newborn’s things in order. There are items that you’ll need and use more than others, so they should be first on your list of things to buy. If you don’t acquire them yourself, you can always ask for them as gifts from family and friends who want to buy you something useful for your baby shower.
Here are some of the essentials that you’ll want to own in a home with a newborn baby:
• Diapers in All Sizes. Most babies outgrow their clothing quickly. That’s why it’s important to have diapers of all sizes on hand so you’re prepared for their next growth spurt. You can never have too many of this one item. Babies require frequent diaper changes and it’s one expense you won’t be responsible for if you put it on your baby shower registry. Parents of all ages know just how valuable of gift diapers are to new parents.
• A Diaper Pail. There is nothing worse than a smelly diaper stinking up your home. A diaper pail helps keep the odor away by safely containing the diapers until you’re ready to take them out to the trash. It’s the type of gift you’ll grow to appreciate the more you use it because it really helps especially during bad weather and the colder months of the year when it’s harder to get outdoors frequently.
• Bibs and burp cloths. Like diapers, you’ll go through many of these. Babies are messy and having an abundance of these essentials on hand keeps you from running out when you need them. You’ll have a load in the wash, a load in the dryer, and a fresh stack folded that way.
• An Excellent Baby Monitor. The Lovey’s Artificial Intelligence Baby Monitor does it all. It allows you to keep tabs on your baby at all times. You can monitor their movement and even learn the temperature inside the room. Our product offers the most bang for your buck, so it’s something you should own, use, and recommend to other parents once you’ve experienced how well it works.
• A Bottle Sanitizer. Keep bottles from being gunky and germy by sanitizing them often. You won’t be risking your child’s health by giving them a bottle that wasn’t fully cleaned by the dishwasher.
• A Rocking Chair. When your wee one won’t sleep, it helps to rock them. Older generations swear by the rocking chairs they owned while raising children. If you have an opportunity to acquire one, do! You can pass it down to your children as a family heirloom. This type of chair rocks! All puns intended.
When considering items to put on your Baby Registry, don’t forget to include the items listed above. Each is designed to make your home safer and healthier which in return makes you and your baby happier. Feel free to add your own items to the list, but don’t forget the essentials because they’re the things you’ll use most often with the new member of your family.
