Getting Prepared For The Baby

Information on What Apparel and Accessories to Get Your Baby.

It's almost that time for your baby(babies) to come into the world, everyone is excited to see this little bundle of joy. This can be overwhelming, but don't let it, once you get started on the preparations you will soon wonder why you were overwhelmed in the first place. It is best to start with the basics.

What Your Baby Needs

Baby Essentals

We don't want to be caught unprepared so we shall begin our journey.

Items your baby needs are:

CLOTH DIAPERS OR DISPOSABLE DIAPERS

DIAPER BAG

A diaper bag(to keep baby wipes, diapers, powder, rash ointment,) and diaper pail (if you decide on cloth).

BABY BOTTLES

Bottles, nipples, bottle sterilizer, (If you are breastfeeding you will need a breast pump, nursing pillow).

BABY CLOTHES

Onsies, sweater sets(that include hat, booties and mitts, the mitts will protect the baby from scratching themselves)unisex clothing (if you don't know whether its a boy or girl), bibs, extra hats, booties and socks, shirts or kimonos, layette sets, sleep sacks, receiving blankets, bunting bag, nice outfit and outerwear to bring the baby home in (choosing according to the weather).

CAR SEAT

Do not forget the CAR SEAT and a auto mirror so you can see the baby.


BABY NURSERY

In the nursery you can do some magic. You could use a bassinet or cradle to start and then choose a crib later.

The fun part is choosing from all those wonderful baby designs out there, that are ready made or you could make the bedding, bumper pads, blankets and drapes (if you love to sew or perhaps a relative or friend could sew it for you).

A crib mobile and mirror is good for the baby to watch.

Some toys such as rattles, stuffed animals and bath toys are very nice for baby. At bath time you will also need a bath tub, washcloths, hooded towel, baby shampoo and lotion.

CAMERA OR VIDEO CAMERA

You will want a camera or video camera to make memories of the of the new arrival.


ANOTHER IDEA FOR PHOTOS IS TO PUT YOUR FAVORITE BABY, ETC.,PHOTOS ON A STAMP. (IT LOOKS SO CUTE)

Personalized Baby Items/gifts/gift Baskets

SPECIAL SENTIMENTS

When your baby is born or other special occasions come along, getting a unique special gift that is personalized makes it extra special and the memory will be there forever in your(their heart.

MY GRANDDAUGHTER'S BIRTHDAY IS MAY 19 AND I AM GOING TO GET HER SOMETHING TO CELEBRATE IT. IT SEEMED LIKE YESTERDAY SHE WAS THIS SMALL SOFT BUNDLE IN MY ARMS AND NOW SHE IS SO TALL. I WANT TO CRY, BUT I CHERISH ALL THE SPECIAL TIMES WE HAD SINCE BIRTH AND WE WILL MAKE MANY MORE MEMORIES TOGETHER.

I HOPE YOU ENJOY FINDING THAT SPECIAL GIFT. YOU CAN ALSO FIND SOMETHING FOR THE WHOLE FAMILY:

MOM'S, DAD'S, GRANDPARENTS, UNCLES & AUNTS, ETC..

      Hi,

      Customer Service. Many people commented on the excellent customer service they received from Uppababy. There were many stories of people finding the company very helpful and easy to work with if problems arose with the stroller. This, in our opinion, is really important especially when considering the investment one makes in a stroller these days.

      Good description of what to buy; when you are pregnant it is difficult to select baby things, especially for first time moms.
