Ten products you need before your baby arrives

Are you pregnant? Don’t be surprised if you’ll think of new things to get for your baby every day. But there’s no hurry. I’ve come up with a list of ten products that I recommend getting before your baby arrives.

1. Cot, side sleeping crib or baby bassinet

As a newborn sleeps most of the time, it’s important to make sure it has a comfortable bed. A cot, a side sleeping crib or a baby bassinet are all ideal; your choice should be based on how flexible you want to be in responding to the needs of you and your baby.

2. Baby car seat

Some hospitals insist on you having a baby car seat to make sure your little one is safe. In my opinion, a baby seat is a must-have; it’s a safe bed for babies and offers parents flexibility.

3. Pushchair with carrycot

You don't need to take long walks with your baby in the first few weeks, but going for a quick stroll and catching some fresh air is good for you and your child. As keeping a baby in a curved position for long periods of time might prevent or delay the proper development of the spine, it's essential to have a carrycot.

4. Clothing

Babies are not yet able to regulate their own body temperature and rely on their parents to decide whether they’re too hot or too cold. Therefore, it will make your life easier if you have a large choice of clothes in the first few weeks, allowing you to react flexibly to changing temperatures.

5. Nappies

Sleeping, drinking and peeing are what babies do most in the first few weeks. This might sound boring, but babies learn new things very quickly. Yet, getting a jumbo pack of nappies and wet wipes is definitely worthwhile – you’ll need them all.

6. Baby bottle

You might think you don’t need a bottle while you're breastfeeding, but you do. Bottles are great to feed your baby water, fennel tea or milk if it refuses to breastfeed or is sick. Have a bottle ready just in case.

7. Nursing pillow

Breastfeeding your baby in an awkward position can cause your nipples to get sore. Perfectly designed to meet the needs of breastfeeding, nursing pillows are a great help. If you buy one early, you can also use it to support your sleeping position during pregnancy.

8. Baby monitor

Playing lullabies during pregnancy is believed to help your baby sleep once it's born, as it recognises the tune. A baby monitor with intercom system can be used as a walkie-talkie and is a great way to keep an eye (and an ear) on your newborn.

9. Changing mat

You can change your baby’s nappy anywhere and on any surface. Personally, I like having a room in my home that’s decorated to make for a perfect nappy changing room. A matching changing mat makes sure your baby is comfortable.

Babies have soft and sensitive skin, soft nails, a sensitive scalp, fine hair and a delicate nose that they cannot clean themselves. A good care set has everything you need, even a thermometer.

Ich finde die Liste zu pauschal. Punkt 2: Braucht man nur, wenn man Auto fährt. Wieso das Kind nicht im Tragetuch nach Hause tragen? Punkt 3: definitiv auch kein Must-Have. Erst mal das Kind zur Welt kommen lassen und dann ausprobieren, ob es sich in einem Kinderwagen wohl fühlt.

Punkt 8: unnötig. Am Anfang hat man sein Kind immer in der Nähe, da hört man sehr wohl, wenn sich das Kleine meldet. Punkt 9: Wickelauflagen sind auch nicht zwingend nötig.

Punkt Nummer 6.
Hmm, finde ich leider sehr doof ge-/beschrieben.
1. Ein Schoppen kann zu einer Saugverwirrung führen.
2. Ein Baby braucht kein Wasser, Tee oder ähnliches, wenn es gestillt wird.
3. Wenn das Baby aus einem unbestimmten Grund, die Muttermilch nicht direkt von der Brust bekommt,

Hallo Andrea, vielen Dank für deinen Kommentar zu meiner Page. Bei meiner Aufstellung handelt es sich ja um meine eigenen Erfahrungen und Must-Haves, somit ist dieser Punkt für mich korrekt und richtig beschrieben. Es kommt auch immer darauf an, welche Erfahrungen man selber macht und was einem die Hebamme empfiehlt. Denn bei mir war weder ein Becher noch ein Löffel je ein Thema. Zudem war es für mich die richtige Entscheidung eine Flasche zur Hand zu haben, um die abgepumpte Milch bzw. auch mal ein Schluck Fencheltee zu verabreichen. Meine Kleine wollte so oft trinken, dass ich bzw. mein Körper zwischendurch wirklich froh um eine kleine Pause war. Allfällige Saugverwirrung hin oder her. :-)
