1 - Stroller
The choice of strollers is now simply huge: there are models for every taste and budget.
Many parents prefer transforming strollers for a newborn baby - this is a cradle stroller, which, when the child grows up, can be transformed into a stroller.
Strollers with several modules are gaining popularity - a cradle, a car seat, a walking block - which are alternately fixed on one chassis. The cradle in modular strollers has a strong rigid frame, so the newborn takes an anatomically correct position in it.
If you have a car and plan to regularly carry a stroller with you, you need to find out in advance whether the model you like is easy to fold, as well as how much space it will take when folded.
If your house has a small elevator, you need to check in advance whether the stroller you like will pass through its doors - for this, you should specify the width of the stroller and measure the entrance to the elevator.
When buying, you must consider the season. "Winter" baby strollers should be with warm covers that will protect the baby from the cold. For spring and autumn, you need a raincoat, for summer - a mosquito net and, possibly, a sun awning.
2 - Clothes for a Newborn
Choosing clothes for babies is one of the most enjoyable activities for an expectant mother. Every woman wants her baby to feel comfortable and look attractive. In stores you can find so many different things for a newborn that inexperienced mothers sometimes get lost what to buy and in what quantity.
Diapers make babies' clothes less likely to get dirty, so count on one set a day, assuming you'll be washing every 3-5 days. If you do not swaddle your baby, you will need about five sliders and five baby caps and baby undershirts for newborns, two pairs of scratchy mittens, one pair of warm and two pairs of cotton socks, two pairs of booties. However, now instead of sliders and vests, slips are very popular, similar to overalls with buttons with closed arms and legs - they do not hinder movement and are very comfortable for babies.
Many mothers, in addition to slips, also buy several bodysuits that differ from slips in that they do not have panties and below they are made like panties or shorts with fasteners.
A lot of women are looking for where to buy ergopouch. Try buying online from reputable brands. The sleeves of the bodysuit can be short or long, and they are also generally sleeveless - like T-shirts. Among other things, you will need a pair of suits made of cotton jersey or velor. Recently, bonnets have become less popular due to uncomfortable ties - they are often replaced with cotton hats.
If the baby was born in the cold season, he will need a demi-season and winter overalls, which can be replaced with envelopes, as well as a warm hat. In winter, a woolen or camel blanket is useful, in which you can wrap the child before a walk. A pair of blouses with buttons will not hurt.
3 - Bed
When choosing a crib, you should be guided by whether it will be comfortable and safe. You need to immediately pass by products that have sharp corners, bumps and roughness on the surfaces. You should check the safety certificate of the crib you like.
We should not forget about the design either: the color, shape, materials of the crib should not only please future parents, but also fit into the interior of the children's room.
It is better to choose cribs with adjustable bottom height. In the first months of a child's life, you can position the bottom higher - then you do not have to bend low to take or put the baby. When the child begins to actively explore the world, you can lower the bottom lower - for safety.
4 - Tray
Almost every home has a regular bath, but for several reasons it is worth buying a baby one.
Firstly, the child will feel more comfortable in it, because the “adult” bath is too large a space for the baby. Too small a bath should not be chosen either: the child should fit freely inside, nothing should hamper his movements.
Secondly, a small bath is easier to wash, and this should be done before each bath.
Thirdly, while bathing in a baby bath, it is more convenient to hold the child and control his position.
You can install the bath so that you do not have to bend low to the baby while bathing him - you can fix it on a reliable stand and, if necessary, raise it to a comfortable height.
5 - Sterilizer
Feeding accessories should only be used clean, so as not to jeopardize the health of the baby. You can clean the bottles in a simple and reliable way - with the help of a sterilizer.
There are two types of sterilizers: steam, which disinfect the bottles with steam, and "cold", which treat the bottles with special antiseptic agents.
6 - Feeding Bottle
A feeding bottle can come in handy even if the baby is breastfed - for example, for water.
The assortment of bottles in stores is large, there are even “anti-colic” bottles that are made in a curved shape. Their design does not allow swallowing excess air while eating and regulates the “rhythm” of feeding.
With the start of complementary foods for parents, such a device as a nibbler will become relevant - this is a fabric or silicone mesh. A piece of fruit is placed in a nibbler - usually a banana or an apple - and given to the baby. The child chews on a soft mesh and receives a natural fruit puree - without the risk of swallowing a large piece.
When buying bottles or a nibbler, you need to check the quality certificate.
