List of Essential Baby Items for NewbornA list of the most important baby articles for newborns
Here is a list of my Top 5 newborn essential that have guided us through the first six months with our newborn. Mainly for wiping up flotsam, spitting and baby illnesses as well as diapers, lightweight blankets and duvets. When Freddie is wound up, he often returns some of his breastmilk.
Feed pillows. No matter whether you are nursing or doing formulaseding, you will want a pad under your arms to help your baby breastfeed. In the course of the week your baby gets heavy and your arms really start to hurt. Feed pillows take the load and help make your feed a much more enjoyable one.
Pajamas with integral gloves. But Freddie was birthed with hot fingernails. There was no assurance that I would be able to slice them immediately, so the use of pajamas with gloves was a gift from Allah. Gloves just jump over the end of his hand to keep his face safe from scratches when I'm not looking.
My own personal experiences are that baby gloves never last the whole day, so it is great to have them in pyjamas. Lots of detergent. but we' ve been through so much laundry in the first six week. Freddie not only reared a great deal of his own breast milk very regularly.
It is important to keep a baby hot, because at such a young age it cannot control its own bodily temperatures. You have to keep her warmed from the minute she's delivered. You can find it soothing when you are warmly enveloped in it. This is not an exhausting list, but some of the cheap necessities that have really been helping me and Baby Freddie in the first six week.
I would have liked to have said that a warm glass of teacup is essential, but after drinking far too many half coffees and teas in the last few days, a warm glass is simply a pipe of hope!
