Shopping List for Baby or Most Important Things to Buy For Newborn Babies
Have you done your baby shopping?
Are you a first time mom or dad?
Congratulations! It's time to do your baby shopping. Do you know from where to start from? I have done it for you. As a first time mom, I have created a list of the most necessary things you will need to buy. I will help you to buy your baby basics. Choose your baby basics wisely. Excited?
I would recommend: baby cot bed car seat, baby monitor, bath tub and bath tub support, baby blanket, change mat, change bag, sterilizer set, bottles, breast pump, nursing bra breast pads and baby clothes.
1. Baby Cot Bed
Cot bed is one of the most important things you will need. Should you buy a baby basket first? Not really. Choose cot bed with the easy-to-use drop side for future.
2. Travel system: buggy + car seat
Bought mine from Ebay. It was Graco.
It was one of the hardest thing to buy. I would advise buying a travel system that has both a car seat and a stroller. The main advantage is that the car seat will fit into the stroller.
3. Baby monitor
Brilliant thing for peace of mind. You will be able to relax and spend some time with your partner. At the start I didn't have it but now I'm beating myself: "Why didn't buy it before?" Now I can watch TV late at the night.
4. Baby Bath and Bath support
Very important thing for bonding with your baby. Leave this task to daddy! Don't forget baby bath support so you can play and wash at the same time.
5. Baby blanket
You will need at least 2 of them
Invest in a good blanket.One of them might be soft and another yo can use a baby wrap. Swaddle your baby!
6. Change mat
Most used item
Ideal for nappy changing and will protect your house from "accidental" baby suprises. Believe me it happens quite often.
7. Change bag
It can be stylish as well
Change bag is important for your outings with a baby. So many things in one bag: diapers, wipes, extra set of clothes, bottles and etc. One thing I can say - You can be stylish MOMMY as well. There are some bags on the market that you would never guess they are changing bags.
Be cool and stylish mom
8. Steriliser set
Could be microwave, steam or cold water... You choose
Could be microwave, steam or cold water... You choose. You might not need it if you are going to breastfeed.
There are many different types but I suggest to choose BPA free bottles. I heard that the chemical bisphenol A (BPA) in the plastics could cause behavioral changes in babies or contribute to early onset of puberty in girls. I don't want this for my kid. Do you?
10. Breast pump
Skip if you don't need it.
Breast pump is a must-have for any mom. You can pump milk and use it when travelling somewhere or being in public place.
11. Nursing bra and breast pads
Skip if you plan to feed with bottles.
Important piece in your wardrobe. Choose you size right...
Don't forget to buy it
11. Baby clothes
I can go on and on. This part is really up to you.
You will need:
- short sleeve bodysuit
- long sleeve sleepsuit
- something warm for outdoor
- little socks
and many more...
