Bringing Home Baby … The Essentials

newborn

3. The Boppy pillow: This gem is such a simple concept, but makes life a bit more comfortable, especially when breastfeeding.  

A portable gadget like a bouncy chair or swing will keep your little one close to you so that you can keep your eye on them.

As a writer, I must guiltily admit that my “bean” snuggled in the Boppy, nursing away, while I typed away on the laptop in those early months. The Boppy pillow made it all possible!

4. A bouncy chair or swing: Getting a shower every day can be a big accomplishment in early mommyhood! A portable gadget like a bouncy chair or swing will keep your little one close to you so that you can keep your eye on them. Sometimes, you just need two hands and your little one needs a safe, comfortable place where they can see you. Find something that works for you, whether it is a bouncy chair, swing, or play-yard.

5. The other essentials you just can't buy: Get some sleep, take care of yourself (exercise, good food, and all that other fun stuff) and have some fun (don't take yourself or the role of parenthood too seriously!).

    To me the body pillow is number one cause its easy to set the baby on it to get things done. But us mothers will always find new things an ways to help us get some things done! : )

    This was helpful. I would also like to know more though. I have two pets and want to know as much as I can about what to do when I finally take baby home.

    comfortable shoes for you, nursing bras that give good support, and i still keep using my body pillow

  4. Aimee says:

    A stock pile of diapers, wipes, and spit up rags would be my top three.

  5. What other hints would you ladies have? I’m due very soon with my first and could use a lot of tips <3

    Hand sanitizer near the changing station is a good idea.
