A List of things to buy for a Newborn BabyList of things you can buy for a newborn.
Pack ing my ambulance bags check list. Half the list's for surro's, half for Intended Parents. Only 4 months away from the birth date of baby number 2, I thought it was my turn to pack my satchel. I will be 37 next weekend, which my mother likes. We like this very practical proposed check list for the upcoming mother's medical kit.
It' s really a great concept to have this scheduled at least 5 or 6 week before the due date and maybe even packaged! Just what you need to wrap in your ward pouch for the c-area. Half the list is for Surro's, the other half for Intended Partners.
Things you really need in your birdbag (and things you really don't need) - London Hypnobirthing
I have seen many check lists for birthing bags in my day, and what always amazes me is - quite openly - what a shit cargo they all are. It is a pocket with the most necessary things that YOU can use when YOU are in labor, either at home or in hospitals.
Really, if you have a simple delivery, you won't be in hospitals very long after you have had your baby, and if you don't, your spouse or your host will be able to provide you with more and more baby equipment as needed. I' ve added some brand names that I like and haven't been supported by.
It is also important to say that it is important that your birthing companion grabs the birthing pouch. Hopefully now you had the common sense to do some hypnobirthing before the baby was born, but if you leave it too late, go to my store where you can buy a relaxing and affirmative action pack of MP3s to keep you quiet and concentrated before - and on - the big workday.
No matter whether you have your baby at home, in a birthing house or in a clinic, one of the best ways to keep your spirit and your physical well-being at rest is to make your environment as comfortable and comfortable as possible. I am a big supporter of ethereal oil - they are so simple to use and unbelievably efficient during childbirth and childbirth when the olfactory senses are increased.
There are always Neal's Yard ethereal oil of high caliber, but you should find all of the above in your nearest healthcare store. I mean all the little things most girls wish they put in their birthing box but don't have room for all the gloves.
I will keep this short because, as I said before, your baby doesn't need much, in fact they just do. Maternity companion, make sure you have your own little pocket with replacement battery packs, battery charger, odourless food stuffs (it's not, I reiterate, not a good thing to have a working woman's food stuffs), things to keep you cool and amused while your companion sleeps - book/magazine/iPad/headphones/playercards and so on, some toilet supplies, money.
Be sure to take a tripod with you - you really want to be able to record the first earthly memories of your new little person. Wrapping the things you actually need and saving baby's essentials is the secret to the perfect baby carrier. I would advise you to put a front pocket so that your baby has his own backpack and carries a cushion and the backrest ( unless your baby can tear home easily).
You make the best diaper bag I've ever seen (no muffin/owl in sight) and they have infinite usefulness.
