FAQs About Baby

You will have a changing list of necessary items as your baby gets older, with new products required as your baby starts to crawl and walk. To start, you'll want a crib or co-sleeper and crib mattress for your baby's nursery, as well as fitted crib sheets, receiving blankets, and waterproof mattress protectors.

Once your baby gets a bit older, you'll also need to stock up on baby-proofing gear. That includes gates to put at the top and bottom of stairs, latches for drawers and cabinets, outlet covers, furniture anchors, and fireplace bumpers. Many parents also choose to invest in toilet locks and corner guards for low tables.

You will need various products depending on if you plan to formula-feed or breastfeed.

A breastfeeding checklist includes:
  • Breast milk containers or storage bags.
  • Breast pump (an electric pump works well if you plan to use it every day, for example at work).
  • Burp cloths.
  • Cotton bibs.
  • Nursing pads.
  • Nursing pillow.
  • Several bottles/nipples if someone else will feed the baby pumped breast milk.
A formula-feeding checklist includes:
  • Baby formula.
  • Bottles with newborn nipples.
  • Bottle-cleaning brushes and/or a dishwasher basket.
  • Bottle-drying rack.
  • Bottle sterilizer.
  • Burp cloths.
  • Cotton bibs.
  • Dry formula dispenser.
  • Insulated carrier or cooler for going out.

In addition to the baby food itself, you will want to have certain products on hand when your baby reaches this exciting milestone. A high chair or booster seat will keep your baby comfortable at mealtime. You'll also want easy-to-clean bibs, baby spoons, bowls, drinking cups, serving dishes, and a splash mat. You can also get a baby food maker if you're interested in making some food on your own.

Finally, make sure you have plenty of cleaning supplies on hand! Extra towels, paper towels, sponges, wipes, and spray cleaners can go a long way in making after-meal clean-up less stressful.

Daily care of your baby requires a variety of products to keep your baby feeling their best. Many parents choose to have several pacifiers — you might first try a few different brands to find out which type your baby prefers, then buy more from the preferred brand. You will want to have a thermometer on hand as well as infant fever-reducer and electrolyte drinks that can treat dehydration.

Petroleum jelly, a nasal aspirator, saline nose drops, anti-gas medicine, and vapor cream or vapor bath are also useful. Once your baby starts teething, you will also want to have a teething ointment or another teething remedy ready to go.

Whether you're enjoying family time at home or you're on the go, you will want to have several key products on your must-have list. Car seats and strollers top the list, along with a diaper bag to fill with wipes, diapers, and spare clothing.

When you're out and about, you might want a front carrier or a baby backpack. Other useful items include a rain cover and warm blanket or "boot" for stroller walks in rainy or cold conditions. At home, you'll want an infant or bouncer seat, heavy quilts or blankets to put on the floor, a baby swing, and a stationary activity center.
