Preparing for a baby is a whole job, as you are about to find out if you are expecting one. You are going to spend a good sum of money buying things for their nursery so that you walk out of the hospital with some confidence. This particular task is not usually easy for first-time mums as they don't know what to buy and what to leave, and the best they can do is take advice from their mothers and other experienced women. When you do, here are some of the things they will probably advise you to get:
A NIGHT LIGHT
Babies are NOT easy to put to sleep, but when they finally do, it would be quite wise to let them be. This, however, is not practically possible as you will have to change their diapers, change their position, take off a sweater or add another, etc. You may want to do all these as quietly and gently as you can because once those little eyes open, you are going to be in for a long night.
That being the case, you should make sure that you keep anything distracting away, such as bright lights. You will need some to see what you are doing, which is why there is a wide variety of cute night lights to your disposal.
A DIAPER CADDY
Some parents may find this unnecessary, but you will find it quite useful when you need to change the baby's diaper in like a minute, or when the diaper supply suddenly runs out. A caddy is like a toolkit for the baby. It contains diapers and everything else you will need to change the baby without racing across rooms to find the cream or wipes. You can also keep a mental note on the diaper supply so that you know when to restock.
A DIAPER PALE
Yeah, you need a bin for the baby's diapers. You can't simply wrap it up and throw it in the kitchen bin. Your house will be stinking in hours, and you may have to take out the trash every two hours or so.
To save yourself that headache, get a diaper pale with a good lock that will keep in the stench.
A WIPES WARMER
Sounds a little exaggerated? Well, if you are really in a tight financial spot, you don't have to get one. You will, however, have to bear watching the babies cringe, squirm and squeal when you place the cold thing on their bum. You will also have to risk waking the baby up at night when you change them.
A CALMING NOISEMAKER
If your baby is having trouble sleeping, you may want to try out a calming noise maker. It produces some light sounds that drone on until the baby falls asleep. With time, they learn to associate the noise with sleep.
In conclusion, different things for different babies, and you may never know what works for yours until you try it.
