Posted by Kerry Nevins on

Hello, moms-to-be! As you eagerly await the arrival of your little one, the excitement and anticipation may be mixed with a touch of anxiety about being fully prepared. Well, don't worry! We have the newborn essential checklist every parent needs, to ensure you and your baby have everything you need for a smooth start. 

Diapers, Diapers, Diapers!

Diapers, Diapers, Diapers!

Stocking up on diapers is a no-brainer, but the real question is: How many do you need? The answer varies, but having a good supply of both newborn and size 1 diapers will set you on the right path. You'll be changing diapers like a pro in no time!

Cozy Onesies and Sleepsuits

Your baby's comfort extends beyond diapers. Snuggly onesies and sleepsuits are absolute must-haves. Opt for soft, breathable fabrics and choose designs that make dressing and changing a breeze. Trust me; you'll appreciate the ease of snaps during those late-night changes. Here is a list of what you'll need for your baby's clothing:

  • Sleepsuits or long-sleeved suits
  • Vests
  • Rompers
  • Short-sleeved suits
  • Cardigans/jackets/ jumpers
  • Snowsuit
  • Hats
  • Mittens
  • Booties
  • Bibs
  • Sun hat

Creating a cozy and secure environment for your newborn is essential. Swaddle blankets are perfect for recreating that warm, snug feeling your baby experiences in the womb. They also help prevent the startle reflex, promoting a longer and more peaceful sleep for both you and your baby.

Feeding Essentials: Bottles, Bibs, and Burp Cloths

Whether you choose breastfeeding or formula feeding, having the right tools is crucial. Stock up on bottles, nipples, and a good supply of bibs and burp cloths. These little essentials will make feeding time a joy rather than a messy ordeal:

  • Nursing bras
  • Breast pads
  • Breast pump (optional)
  • Milk storage pots/bags
  • Bottles/teats/bottle brush (only needed if not breastfeeding)
  • Lots of muslin squares
  • Steriliser

  • Cot/moses basket
  • Mattress
  • Sheets
  • Blankets
  • Wardrobe/drawers
  • Changing unit/changing mat
  • Rocking chair

Gentle Baby Skincare Products

Your newborn's delicate skin deserves the best care. Choose fragrance-free, hypoallergenic baby skincare products to keep your little one's skin soft and supple. From shampoo to lotion, make sure you have all the essentials on hand.

Transitioning into parenthood is an incredible journey, and having the right essentials in place can make it all the more enjoyable. Use this checklist as a guide to ensure you have everything you need for your baby's arrival.
