Greetings everyone, today, in this post, I want to share with you all about the checklist of baby necessities to welcome a newborn baby, especially for a mummy who will be a mother for the first time. This checklist is supposed to be a guide for you so that you will get the idea of it.

The Preparation to Welcome a New Baby

Providing baby accessories is a very exciting experience for many new parents. Yet, without careful planning, they may be buying things they shouldn’t and left out that must be bought. Then, this is the importance of a baby equipment checklist.

However, before making the checklist you are advised to seek the advice and views of more experienced individuals. At the same time, make sure that the items to be purchased are within your financial means.

Baby Clothes

There are currently many baby clothing options on the market. For the first time buying, definitely do not choose random things and stuff. So, be careful. For starters, you are advised to buy only basic baby clothes. Buy other clothes such as dresses or denim pants after the baby is a little bigger than newborns. 

When buying newborn clothes, you are encouraged to buy oversized clothes that are six months old and above. This is because we do not know the actual size of the unborn baby. After all, babies grow up fast. If the clothes purchased are small, the wearing period is very short. It could be a waste, isn’t it? 

The basic clothes needed for babies are:

  • Short sleeved shirt
  • Long sleeve shirts
  • Shorts
  • Trousers
  • Barut
  • Socks
  • Gloves
  • Bedding
  • Hats off
  • Diapers

You can choose whether to use disposable diapers or modern cloth diapers. For most new parents who are beginning to be sensitive to environmental care recommendations, they prefer to opt for modern cloth diapers. These modern cloth diapers are also said to be safer for baby’s already sensitive skin. At the same time, these modern cloth diapers are more economical because they can be worn for three years. For starters, a baby needs six to seven pieces of modern cloth diapers. 

However, if you are more comfortable using disposable diapers, you only need to buy a small pack of diapers for newborns. But, you should also provide ‘S’ size disposable diapers as a precaution if the newborn is large.

Whether it’s a modern cloth diaper or a disposable diaper, here are the accessories that need to be provided.

  • Disposable diapers or modern cloth diapers
  • Diaper pads (if you use modern cloth diapers)
  • Wet wipes
  • Pads or liners for changing diapers
  • Diaper bag (used to fill diapers when out of the house)

Bath Set

Baby’s skin is very sensitive. There may be baby bath products that are not suitable for their skin. Therefore, you are advised to only buy a trial pack or a travel pack to see the suitability of the product with your baby’s skin. If appropriate, then buy a larger pack.

To clean your baby’s body, get items like the following:

So all of the things listed above are what parents can prepare before giving birth to their beloved baby. Hope everything is clear and brief. Good luck to all parents!
