Congratulations on being the new parents!! Or, if you are in progress to be one, then all the best. We understand that having your first baby is an overwhelming feeling but you have to focus on certain things while preparing yourself for the same. No matter if you’ve read a hundred books on how to be the parent, but when it comes to practicality, things can be slightly different than the books. Just when the baby comes, there’ll be ‘n’ number of products you’ll need and that’s exactly why we are here for you.
Here’s our list of the tried-and-true, that really does help when you’re starting your new life as a parent. Everything else is just noise.
Yeah… Whether you use cloth or use-and-throw sort of diapers, you’ll need plenty of them to start with. If you by chance run out of them, you would be in deep-deep trouble. Specifically, during the night time when you want your little one to sleep and he/she pees, you’ll have to go through a lot of crying and wetness that’ll make the kiddo cry all the more. So, it is sensible to have plenty of diapers with you.
2. Baby rompers/onesies
You might have heard of baby rompers or onesies for the little ones. All you got to do is – pick them for the little ones to start with. You can shop girls tutu dresses online or boys shirts later on, but for now, you got to start with onesies which are the most comfortable clothing for the tiny one. It is easy for you to get them on and take them off with the help of the snap buttons.
3. Baby wipes
Getting the little ones under the water every time they poop or pee can be a very tricky task. Water plus the dry cloth can leave the butts and the tender skin very rashy which you obviously don’t want. Hence, baby wipes are the clean way to wipe off the dirt from the body without leaving rashes on the body. Wipes are a great way to keep your hands also sanitized while handling your delicate darling.
4. Comfortable carrier
You won’t be able to handle the little one on your shoulder through and through when you are out. You can invest in a comfortable carrier for your little one while you head out of the house. While you can easily carry the carrier, your little one would be lying in the cradle and enjoying the ride happily.
5. Nipple creams
You know that breastfeeding is not an easy task and you are still getting accustomed to the whole process. In due course, your nipples will become soar and will hurt. You can apply nipple cream to keep yourself soft and rash-free.
6. A functional bag to carry it all
The diapers, napkins, wipes, water and everything needs a bigger bag than what you generally carry. Invest in a carry-all bag for your little one that will all that you need while you are out with your munchkin. It should be big enough to carry it all and comfortable for you to carry.
