BTW, did you know that you could have chosen to go on medication and pumped to produce breast milk? I had my kids years ago but some things never change. I bought larger sizes in clothes and got stuff at the baby shower my sisters-in-law gave me.
I made my own receiving blankets as the store bought jobs are too small. My sisters-in-law both had kids around the same time as me or shortly after so we had quite the hand-me-down train going for a few years there too! When my daughter was due with our grandson I refused to buy anything under 12 month size if I could help it.
I gave the remains of the pack to my cousin for her baby. Just a few little bits of advise from an experienced mom and Moomah…. I did like Tori with the cloth diapers — they line dried really fast — less than an hour in an Okanagan summer. Easy to double up, fold different ways for different sizes, had half a dozen preformed ones for going out, but found they took for. I bought very little new for my two, got Please Mum, Oshkosh, Baby Gap, Esprit, etc in new condition, if not still with original store tags, from the VV Boutique for next to nothing.
Also, aside from the car seat, stroller and crib, it is sometimes better to wait a bit and spread the cost over a few months. My two cents, meagre as they may be having not experienced the goods in use yet of course, would be to pay a little more upfront for things that will last longer down the track.
We were able to sort and compare the prices and tested benefits. Also our reason for using mcns. Hi, thank you so much for sharing this information. And it is kinda useful to me. I will share about this information to my sister as well, since she is going to marry soon and plan to have baby afterword. This information does solve their problem.
I was glad to read about people still making their own receiving blankets. But I have a question about other blankets. I am 70 years old and have been knitting and crocheting since I was a teenager. Baby blankets are my favorite things to crochet. Do I have to stop crocheting them?
Here is another suggestion for those who like to make their own items. The gift my mother always made for baby showers was a baby quilt. It was nothing fancy but quite useful. The filler of the quilt was always the good parts of used blankets. The reason for using dark fabric was that the purpose of the quilt was to toss it on a bed or the floor to change baby esp.
The top was made from 4 inch squares, bottom was a solid piece of fabric, and the middle was the old blanket I had mentioned. You could even use a solid piece for the top instead of cutting and sewing squares together. One piece is navy blue and has large crayon-colored polka dots on it. The other piece is wide crayon-colored stripes!
I have a three month old and I use the blankets that my sister crocheted and my MIL knitted. I like to make baby quilts too. They are great and only take about an hour to make. We even own the same two hoodies you have pictured We really really enjoyed borrowing the newborn clothing and other bigger items bumbo, play mat, swing… because we were able to just give it back when we were finished! Bonus points for adding interesting fabrics or appliques that the kid will be able to identify later.
KT please keep making baby things! Home made items are my most treasured things, and I love crochet, whether it be traditional like a blanket or booties or something a little different, like the beard hat trying to wink and nod at my mum a lot to make one of those for our son on the way just google baby beard hat-they look awesome!
We were gifted a pair of crocheted hockey skates. Baby will be coming home from hospital in them, his father has spoken! I would add that you even have too much on your list.. My brain is way overtired from four kids. Storage became an issue when we moved and we lived with less.
The last two lived in sleepers and were huge so newborn size was out and had fancy outfits leftover from siblings. I would definitely not need as much if I were to do the whole thing over again. Sorry, now that I looked more closely at your list, I can say you are spot on.
If you have a barfy baby, like my super-barfer, you will need more of anything they can barf on. There is some one-up-manship going on with which stroller you get. If we lived in the same area, I would say you probably saw me scanning everything at Babies R Us lol. My only complaint is that I fear they will be ruined if I wash them too much and also one two of the blankets have yarn strings as the border does that make sense , so my LO was always having yarn fuzz and loose strings in her hands and mouth.
But…this could just be because of my circumstances. I cloth diaper and am working out the leak situations in regards to cleaning the blankets often and also those specific knit blankets that were made were probably just not safely made lol. Ashley — Thank you for your comments re: Use the gentle or perma-press cycles and when they no longer look brand new, the person who made them for you will be pleased to see how much they are being used. If you have additional babies, they may be quick to make more blankets for you.
OpenDocument Contents and colors have changed over the years, but it has always given a good idea of the baby necessities. Many of Finnish babies sleep their first weeks in the box everything is packed in. For some reason the box on the English page is white, but on the Finnish page you can see the real color with the fill-in-family tree. They will survive just fine without one.
On the other hand, there are things that, of course, are necessary for a baby, such as a car seat, stroller, crib, a highchair or booster seat, some clothes and diapers. Everything else is extra. As a reference, here is a great article and checklist on newborn essentials.
I fully agree with ur lists of essential must have 4 a new born baby. What did you miss? I would put either a stroller or a carrier as a must-have though. We use the Pack N Play as our changing table too. I have to say that it was the best buy in terms of both value and practicality.
Great list and thank you for publishing! I do have to add though, as much as we tried to resist it, having a video monitor is soooooooo nice and gives a new mom such peace of mind. But once we had it we could never go back — it is so great to be able to check on our baby any time without disturbing her!
I feel more free to get things done — cook, watch TV or take a bath. You cannot use an ear thermometer on a baby. Their ears are too small and will give an inaccurate reading.
I just discovered this list. One item I could not do without was a rocking chair. My mother inlaw bought me a used bentwood rocker. I would lay a regular bedroom pillow across the arms while sitting and this was exactly the right height for baby to breast feed.
Fussy babies were soon off to sleep if I gently rocked them while humming. Later I gifted the chair to another young mom. My personal favorite German blog is schnabelina. I plan to use cloth diapers, and as of now I already collect flannel sheet sets whenever I at tag sales or thrift stores, and I make them in to prefold diapers. For diaper patterns, I plan to use the free patterns offered from WAHM friendly designers baabaababy.
It was great, and I would do it again in a heartbeat. The only items I ever purchased new was her crib mattress, and car seat because I wanted to be totally sure that it was safe for her to ride in or God forbid to protect her in an accident and her diapers and wipes. Now that I know better, I would just sew reusable cloth diapers and wipes. Thank you so much!
This is exactly what we have been looking for! I understand that it is exciting and everything look so inviting and too cute but you are right that you only need a few thing the first 3 months. They grow so fast and they will out grow the cloths before they can have a chance to wear them if you but a lot. Great advice, but why are you assuming that those of use who are using disposables would necessarily be using disposable wipes as well?
We use disposable diapers and washcloths for wiping! I saved a reusable container that had wipes I received at a baby shower and filled it with wet baby facecloths. I would put the dirty ones in plastic bag along with the soiled diapers and washed them together. I had rubber pants for over the cloth diapers not so many leaks Do they still make those? KT — thanks so much for this list. And definitely no money to splurge on new stuff.
Your explanation on the different washable nappies is greatly appreciated too! I have a cousin giving me a lot of her washable nappy stuff, of various makes, and it helps to understand what the heck I am looking at. They are super easy to make and just as easy to use and traditional disposable wipes. Thank you so much for putting this together.
This list will be a huge help to me. Disposable diapers are filled with carcinogens and other toxins, including those linked with TSS. Disposable wipes are not the only thing you should be warning parents about. I have never heard of any child having TSS from diapers in my 30 plus years as a parent, even with tampons you have to use them for extraordinary length of time,using an absorbency that is to high for flow.
Any substance on earth is toxic if ingested in large amounts including everyday foods. Parenting is hard enough as it is. I read and hear so many alarming facts these days ,I wonder where commonsense has gone. All three of my first children used some disposible diapers and some cloth diapers. My last a set of twins ,now 16 wore only Pampers. My oldest is 33 yrs. I also have 3 grandchildren who wore only disposibles.
None have cancer or Tss. All my children were potty trained by 2. The youngest at 18 months her choice her diapers were dry and she kept removing them and took training pants out of her own dresser and put them on. There are MUCH bigger things to worry about as you move through your parenting years.
Do not feel guilty if you use disposible diapers or cannot breastfeed. A relaxed happy mom is better for baby. My girlfriends put in together and brought me a Baby Setup box, it was the ultimate baby checklist in the one box. All the little bits and pieces I needed. Best gift ever, saved me time running around and money and I was ready for my baby. I totally recommend it to all my pregnant girlfriends and always suggest it as a Baby Shower gift because I appreciated it so much. Thanks so much for the list!
Definitely needed a good baby basics list. Especially, if your place is larger or has two or more levels.
