These are some pointers for new-parents to keep in mind while preparing their baby-care Inventory-
- Among other things, your kid needs clothes that are comfortable but not too loose, and for that it is important that you buy clothes that are good for his skin to avoid any rashes or skin irritation. You can compare different clothing materials and it's a good idea to keep clothes of different sizes in advance. Bathing accessories like bath-sponge, shampoos, oils, creams etc. are some items that you're definitely going to need.
- Teach your child how to take care of his business with a potty-training kit. Buy quality diapers and get a good fit, otherwise they can cause discomfort.
- The diet of a newborn is usually mother's milk. For your growing child, you can ask your pediatrician to provide you with a diet-chart. There is no telling when the baby will get hungry, so always keep a bottle of milk on you, just in case.
- Bathing a kid can be hard! An Infant tub for the baby with appropriately warm water is the way to go. You can clean him with bath-sponge and then dry him off with a soft washcloth.
- Your little one needs a good and cozy bed to sleep in. After all, the rolling around and playing all day will make him very, very tired. Buy your child, a good, comfortable crib from the market. You should also get other cozy bedding accessories to go with that as well.
- When you're going out, you need transportation for you little one as well. You can buy a travel-system or a pram that you think is the best. There are also car-seats that you can install in your car for the ease of your young one. Babies have very sensitive skin so when you're out in the sun, you can equip your baby-stroller with light-shade accessories to have protection from heat and sunburn.
- You cannot always keep your child in your arms, but you can equip the room with monitors to watch over him even when you're busy with other household work. Also, keep a separate thermometer to check on his temperature and other medical supplies as ordered by your pediatrician, when required.
