Essentials for baby's arrival
2016-03-17 09:44:36
Are you in the process of registering for baby gear? It can absolutely get overwhelming with options. I believe that most things available for babies are nice to have, but not essentials whatsoever. This list is very subjective, obviously, as it’s from my personal point of view, but I still want to share what items I consider to be essential for a newborn.

A Nursing Pillow

A nursing pillow, can be extremely useful for properly positioning your newborn to get a full feeding. But even if you’re not breastfeeding your baby, these products can still be really useful. I used the boppy pillow as a safe place to lay my daughter while I got dressed or brushed my teeth. Another great option was to use this pillow to enhance tummy time.

A Baby Carrier

It’s a personal preference, of course, but I highly recommend purchasing a comfortable carrier for your newborn. I wore my daughter so much in the first few months of his life. He was calm and relaxed and often fell asleep peacefully. It was also very convenient to have both hands free while still meeting my son’s needs. There are several different styles that are great for a newborn, and many available at various price points. Important to note – many baby carriers have a minimum weight requirement and / or require an infant insert for proper use. Be sure to research whatever you plan to use.

Somewhere to Put the Baby Down

Do you need a swing, a bouncer, a rock and play, a baby car seat? No – but you should have at least ONE of those things. I found it very important to have somewhere safe to place the baby so I could shower, or cook dinner, or clean. The ‘problem’ might be that every baby has their own unique preferences, and it might take some trial and error to determine what they enjoy. For example, my daughter loved his swing but never seemed to enjoy his bouncer. It can be quite expensive to purchase all different kinds of baby gear. A few alternatives – if you have friends with children, it never hurts asking to borrow something to test drive it first before purchasing. And if you happen to not know anyone with kids or not have anyone close by to borrow from, purchasing gently used gear can be a great option.
