New Born Checklist- Essentials Required For Newborns

So you’re 8-9 months pregnant and now you’re worried about all the things you need to have to make your baby comfortable in his/her new home.

The most important and one of the crucial stages of parenting. If you choose to breastfeed then you have everything you need. Although, some nursing mothers like to have the following:

• Ample amount of bibs
• Burp clothes
• Breast pump
• Storage containers for milk
• Nursing pillows and nursing bras
• Breast pads
• Lotion for sore nipples

But, if you choose formula feeding then you will be needing the following items:
• Bibs
• Burp clothes
• Bottle and nipple brush
• Thermal bottle carrier, and,
• Formula (be sure to check the expiry date and note the lot number in case of recalls)



Well, a baby changes diapers a lot of times throughout the day and you certainly need to have the necessary items handy.
So, if you’re amongst those using reusable cloth diapers, then you require-
• Several dozen (4 or 5) cloth or reusable diapers
• 8 waterproof covers
• Diaper Changing Station
