My list for the beginning families…your baby shower list of must haves!
Diapers-try both Huggies and Pampers to start off. They are very different and it does depend on what you works for your child’s shape and the how much they produce at one time. (Newborn diapers don’t count they are what they are… and they are only in them for a few weeks at most.)
Bottles-I have found that the Platex air vent bottles work very well for most children and I love the fact that they come apart to be cleaned very well. They also have special ones for breast fed babies to help them not have nipple confusion. They have many different sizes of nipples that you can purchase to help fit your babies needs with how fast they like to drink.
Car seats: The carrier kind is nice when they are little but you will need to get the convertible kind sooner that you think. Also read the directions because every brand is different and it will affect a newborns position in them.
Vaseline-I like the cream kind that comes in a tube. This is great for their little bottoms when the Meconium is coming out. It tends to irritate your skin. Also, if you have a boy, the Vaseline is good for the area that is circumcised.
Well, that’s is my list of things that are great to have for a newborn (in no particular order). As I said, I might add to it as I think of more and more items. Hope this helps some of you beginning families out there!
