Preparing for the arrival of your newborn can be an exciting time. From setting up your nursery to deciding on feeding choices all can add up to the excitement. It is no easy task also trying to figure out how many of these items you need and which ones are not that necessary and which ones to buy later. When it comes to baby items such as bedding and other necessities, you should have safety as your forefront.

It is also advisable to hold off with buying too many of the newborn items and diapers since some babies quickly out grows these early and smaller sized items. Excitement of having your little ones coupled with the cute baby clothing can also lead to buying more than you will need or buying sizes that they will outgrow sooner.

If you choose to formula feed, I’ll also advice you wait to see which formula is gentle on your baby’s tummy before hoarding on a brand.

Also avoid buying items that will pose a health hazard for your infant. Sleeping places should be void of hanging and loose materials and items such as crib bumpers that can lead to suffocation and causing SID.

  1. Great post! Love how thorough it is. It is so true to hold off on some of those things as suggested. My babies hardly ever wore anything other than sleepers their first 3 months. Thanks for sharing.
