Bringing Home Baby … The Essentials
Expecting? Know someone who is? If standing in a mega baby store leaves you feeling more overwhelmed than excited, this article is for you!
Baby carrier, swing, and a Boppy — just a few of the essential pieces that you'll want to have for when you bring your baby home.
What do you really need? Here are a few tried and true essentials.
1. Baby Carrier: Find a good baby carrier. One that is comfortable and supports you. Yes, you will enjoy sitting for hours and cuddling your newborn, but occasionally, you may just need to use two hands (to eat a bowl of cereal, brush your teeth, etc.). You will be amazed at all that you will be able to get done while still bonding with your new little treasure.
2. Purrell or other hand sanitizer: Sometimes, getting to the sink can be a challenge. Keep a bottle of sanitizer at the end of the changing table (but be sure to keep it out of reach of your little one!).
