Getting ready for your baby to arrive is an exciting time. But it can also be stressful as you try to prepare your home with everything you need to ensure your first stretch at home goes as smoothly as possible.
Instead of having to take an unnecessary trip to the shops when you’re trying to enjoy the moment with your newborn baby, consider these essential items before the big day comes.
Naturally, there’s plenty more to choose from, but these items will ensure your transition is a little less tense.
Baby monitors are an essential purchase for parents who don't want to keep a keen eye on their baby at all times. With one carefully positioned next to their cot, you won’t have to constantly check on their wellbeing and potentially wake them from a peaceful sleep.
In addition, baby monitors allow mums and dads to have more downtime. Instead of having to get up from the couch every time you hear an unfamiliar sound, you can simply check the monitor’s feed to ensure your baby is fast asleep.
To safely secure your newborn baby in the back of the car, you need to own a baby capsule. As these comfy seats are designed for use until your child is around six months old, they make it incredibly easy to transport your baby between your home, car and pram.
When you shop for a baby capsule, you’ll quickly find that many come with added extras that make your life easier. For instance, some options on the market feature sun shades or rain covers for use in the pram or when you need to carry the capsule.
It won’t take long to realise the usefulness of a changing table. As these convenient pieces of furniture are equipped with helpful drawers and shelves, all your bits and bobs will remain within reach at all times.
Meanwhile, changing tables are good for your physical wellbeing. Rather than having to bend or kneel on the floor, these keep you in a relaxed standing position so you can finish the job without any aches and pains.
Babies are bound to make a mess of their bedding before long. This means you definitely want to have enough sheets on hand, so you don’t have to constantly worry about washing and drying what they need to sleep comfortably.
However, keep in mind that baby skin is often sensitive to synthetic materials. Therefore, opt for 100% cotton, wool or linen alternatives that feel better against their skin.
