Parents should always make preparations, especially when they are expecting a baby. That means that you have to buy your baby clothes, baby bottles, car seat, crib, and other essential things.
The first three months after birth can be quite challenging, but fortunately for you, I happen to have a checklist of the must-have items that you should buy before your baby is born.
Before anything else, it is important that you create a baby registry in some online baby stores. That is so that you can get huge discounts. I highly urge you to create a registry in both Amazon and Rakuten.
So, without further ado, here are some must-have items that you must purchase before your baby is born:
According to the American Academy of Pediatrics, it is important that you feed your baby some breastmilk, especially in their first three months. That is because it contains a lot of nutrients that their bodies need to obtain optimum nutrition.
That being said, there are some mothers that do not want the sensation of their babies having to suck their nipples to extract the milk. If you are part of the demographic, then you can just use a breast pump to extract the milk from your breasts.
There is a manual and an automatic pump and I highly recommend that you but the latter so that you do not have to get stressed getting your own milk from your breasts.
There is no doubt that your baby will need some diapers as they can become very messy during their formative years. That being said, instead of just throwing their soiled diapers in the same trash bin along with your other garbage, you can buy a dedicated diaper pail for that.
They are actually quite convenient because you can segregate them more easily and you can throw the dirty diapers more readily if you put them in a diaper pail.
As the name implies, it is the perfect travel buddy, especially when it comes to storing some extra diapers when you travel with your baby.
That being said, you also want a diaper bag that has multiple compartments so you can use them for storing your other baby’s essentials, including their milk bottle, baby wipes, and so much more.
Of course, you want to provide ample protection for your baby against the weather and harmful elements. That being said, you can buy them some pajamas, onesies, socks, jackets, and so much more. Be sure to get clothes that are appropriate for the season.
If you want to travel with your baby and have some long walks during the day, a stroller can be a godsend. There are different types of strollers out there. Some are lightweight but are nearly devoid of any other features and there are also those that come with all of the bells and whistles, albeit is quite hefty as a result.
You are mandated by law to install a car seat for your baby. In fact, you cannot travel with your baby if you do not have a car seat in your vehicle installed and ready.
