Top 10 Must-Haves for New Parents

When a newborn arrives, parents need to gather a lot of things for the newborn care regimen. Have a quick look at the list of top 10 must-haves for new parents.

Shopping for a newborn is really exciting. You will not miss a single thing off the newborn essentials list to welcome the newborn. Whether you buy these things or you get them in your baby shower, make sure there are few things that are available for you from the first days of your new motherhood. Listed below are the top 10 newborn care essentials. 

1. Breast Pump and Accessories

Your baby can still have breast-milk when you are not around. Look for a portable and durable top-notched breast pump. You will get double or single, electric or manual, many styles of breast pumps. You can choose the one as per your comfort and ease of use. 

2. Travel System

Travel system is a combination of car seat and stroller. It has a car seat where your baby can doze off whenever he or she wants and if you have reached your destination, then without any walking, the seat can be taken out of its base and fixed in the stroller.

3. Baby Carrier

Babies always like to be in the love, warmth and care of their mothers. In the market, you will get traditional slings to conventional baby carriers with improved designs that allow your baby to be in various positions. You will want to look for one with an easily adjustable strap. Remember to try it before you buy it.

4. Nursing Pillow and Chair

Get an easy and compact nursing pillow to help you from straining while breastfeeding. Nursing pillow helps to keep the baby in position and you can rest your arms then. Even a nursing rocking chair with a footstool does wonder for you and your baby.

5. Diapers, Diaper Bags and Diaper Rash Cream

Diapers save your baby from getting dirty from its own excreta. Get a big diaper bag that serves as your handbag. Nowadays, diapers for newborns are also available but you can wait for a fortnight or for a month to start using diaper for your newborn. When you start using diapers, carry diaper trash bags also if you do not have access to throw your baby’s poop on-the-go and you have to carry otherwise. When the rash comes, it is painful for the baby, so keep a diaper rash cream as prescribed by your doctor handy anytime.

6. Cradle

You will look for a peaceful time to have your food or get a quick shower; you just need a cradle to put your baby in and keep him or her occupied then. At midnight, you do not have to move your baby back and forth; a good cradle can rock your baby’s world and do its job nicely.

7. High Chair

Get a high chair that can also serve as a travel chair or fix it next to the dinner table. Look for something that has a good stability with neck and back support. This works really well as your baby grows for at least 5-6 months.

8. Swaddling Blankets

Invest in lightweight and large swaddling blankets made of muslin cloth. Swaddling copies the womb and calms the baby by allowing him or her to throw his or her limbs long and sleep. This not only helps your baby soothe, but also helps him or her sleep early.

9. Changing Mats and Rubber Sheets

Changing mats are great to have. They are of great help while dressing and undressing your baby, giving him or her sponge bath, changing diapers etc. Using changing mats and rubber sheets will help you to prevent your baby’s bed from getting dirty and will reduce your laundering work.

10. Baby Clothes and Accessories

Do not buy too many small sized clothes. Have the basics, like hats, socks or booties, bodysuits, nighties, cardigans, etc. Purchase hypoallergenic bath and body products as prescribed by your doctor– choose the best ones for the soft and delicate skin of your newborn.

When you buy anything for your baby, make sure that you do not compromise on the quality. Choose the best quality products for your baby. The best way to ensure that you get best baby products for your child is to consult your doctor before buying anything.
