If you are about to have the happiness of your life and want everything best ready before you bring your new born home, there are many things that need attention to avoid any future inconveniences. The biggest headache for new parents is what to buy and what not. Every offer and every product seems the perfect one for the baby. But there are certain items that should never be the part of your new baby's shopping plan. 10 such items are discussed as follows:
Wipes are needed for the gentle care of the baby's sensitive skin. You can pick any kind of safe and eco-friendly wipes from the market but wipe warmers are definitely not the stuff you need to think about buying. Their specified function can be performed by a simple warm towel by wrapping it around your baby or just hold the wipe between your palms for sometime to warm it up a bit.
This one might be used as an additional space for garbage but it's not a necessity. Usually these pails are so unkempt that they only turn into places giving rise to germs and odor. So firstly don't have such pails in your house at all, otherwise keep them properly clean and disinfected to avoid the unwanted diseases entering into your house.
Although many beautiful and brightly colored changing tables with playful fixtures and accents are available all around the market nowadays, they simply don't need a serious buying consideration. You can save a lot of money by avoiding these tables and giving your baby a safe change on any dresser under your supervision.
These detergents make high-sounding claims of giving something special to your baby's clothes. There is no truth in these claims. All the detergents work the same way for all the clothes. So don't waste your money on these surplus kinds of commodities. Use the regular detergent you use for all the other clothes and use a separate softener if necessary.
Although this one might not sound like an unwanted item, yet deliberate carefully before purchasing a crib. New born should find a sleeping place with the parents until a specific age arrives for having a separate bed. Don't just get a corner of your room occupied for no use. Instead, you can buy a co-sleeper if you really want to buy something worthwhile for your baby.
Toys and Animated Videos
These are completely useless for the growing years of your baby. You can entertain your baby on your own by playing with him or her during your free time and interacting with them in a manner that they learn something new and useful from you each time. Avoid bringing cartoon and animated videos home and spend more time singing and playing with your little one yourself.
Blankets are undoubtedly a must-buy for the new born but there are varieties of blankets that you need to choose wisely from. Avoid buying fluffy blankets and go for thin blankets as the soft ones can cause suffocation by over-heating.
Never buy shoes for the newborn and allow his feet be free and grow normally. Only buy a pair of socks for keeping your baby's feet clean and warm. For special occasions, you can make your baby wear shoes with soft soles as well.
Expensive Designer Kids' wear
Do buy unique and cute-looking dresses for your little one but don't spend extravagantly for buying highly expensive designer clothes for your baby. They will look very trendy for sometime but once your kid grows up, these pieces of clothe will be of no use. Therefore, only buy decent looking reasonable clothes that will be of great value to your kid.
A whole new home
You really don't need to buy him or her a new and bigger house to live in. Your baby will enjoy more in a small or medium-level residence where he can feel cozy with the surrounding and can play around the house safely. Don't shift your house only for arranging space for your baby.
What your kid actually needs is your love and affection that you can give him through your gestures and care.
