What Items do I need for a new BabyWhich items do I need for a new baby?
Baby-buying for new mum and dad who are must-have items that don't destroy the bench - Sheena McStravick
After having had a baby four month ago, I can refer to the sense of fear that comes just a few week before the baby arrives - the sense that you are so unready and have to go on a big mall. In fact, I was listening to other mothers around me telling me not to go buy into the frenzy of all the baby's must-haves.
Your suggestion was easy - buy the essential, i.e. somewhere to go to bed for babies, food, some clothing, wrap material, etc. Baby Tracker comes first. I have a great mind (I'm one of those guys who make never-ending schedules and appointments in a journal so I don't lose sight of things), so with the added enjoyment of "Baby Brain" - believe me, that's genuine, I was wondering how I would ever keep an eye on my new baby's timetable?
Hi Baby Tracker! Well, that may seem unimportant, but if you are in the first few month of "baby fog," with little to no rest, just rely on me, "when did you last eat? This works great for breast-feeding and allows you to determine the duration of your baby's lactation.
The next one is a baby bathroom-thermostat. You need eight an hour's rest every single night? Do you? The next mercy to save me came in the shape of my new best girlfriend, Ollie the Owl. I' m sure many of you have seen a lot about the different baby sleeping pills available on the shelves, from Ewan the lamb to My Hummy, the selection is infinite.
Once again I was tried to put myself in the position of hyperbole and think that my baby needed a sleeping pill like this one that played whispering, sleeping songs or a beating heart that mimicked the sound of the uterus to help him get some rest. The great thing about Ollie the Owl is that he has a built-in cryo detector, which means that Ollie turns on herself to play her favorite tunes and put her back to rest.
Ollie is actually one of the lowest sleeping pills on the block, around 30, but believe me it's actually well worth every cent. However, my suggestion again is that you should not hurry to buy one before the baby is delivered, you will see how things are going. When you want to try to see how your baby reacts to whispering or other calming noises, my next must-have is the right way.
Just downlaod the free'Baby Note App'. There are many different kinds of tones that you can hear directly from your mobile device, from whispering noises to the ringing of a ticks watch or a drive. It is a great way to see if these will help your baby calm down, and if they do, then you can continue to use the free application or investing in a sleeping pill toys like Ollie.
It' s great in case you are on the go and need to calm your little one down for a little shuteye.
