3 Things You Need Before Bringing Baby Home

147

Having a baby is both exciting and overwhelming, especially if your new bundle of joy is your first child. You have no idea what to expect or how much your life will change in the upcoming week but being as prepared as possible can help ease your mind. Getting the nursery set up is one of the most fun aspects of preparing for the baby’s arrival. Here are three items you should make sure are in the nursery and ready for the baby’s arrival to make the transition as smooth as possible.

Baby Clothing in Various Sizes

You may be tempted to fill your nursery with newborn baby clothes, but it is actually better to buy an array of sizes when you are setting up the baby’s room. Some babies are born big and can’t even fit into newborn clothes, while others need preemie sizes because they were born early. Babies grow quickly and it may be overwhelming for a new mom to have to change out clothing sizes every few weeks. You can easily fix this problem by purchasing different sizes up to 12 months when you are shopping for organic baby clothes.

Having an array of clothing sizes available will make the baby’s first year of life much easier for a new mom. You won’t have to worry about not having the next size up when the baby suddenly outgrows his or her clothes. Clothing boutiques such as Matisaurus carry adorable styles with many styles to choose from.

Changing Station

You’ll spend a significant amount of time changing your baby. Not only will you change soiled diapers, but you’ll also have to get the baby dressed and change outfits between spit-up incidents and blowouts. Having everything you need in one convenient location is vital. Set up a changing station in the baby’s room so that everything you need is within arm’s reach.

You may opt to use a traditional changing table or you may choose to set the changing pad on top of the baby’s dresser. Both options are good, but make sure you have the essentials nearby to make your job easier. Some of the items you should have nearby include those listed below.

  • Extra clothes
  • Diapers
  • Wipes
  • Burp cloths
  • Baby lotion
  • Diaper rash cream

Crib and Bedding

Some parents choose to have the baby sleep in a bassinet in their room, while others let the baby sleep in his or her room in the crib right from the start. Regardless of which category you fall into, you need to make sure you have the proper bedding in place to keep the child safe and warm.

If you’re using the crib regularly, you need to make sure you have plenty of tight-fitting crib sheets. You’ll have to change sheet quite often when the baby spits up or has a blowout, so it’s a good idea to have several sheets on hand to keep you from having constant laundry to do. You won’t need a bedspread, but you should invest in warm blankets so you can swaddle the baby to keep him or her warm. By ensuring all of these items are in t
