Essential items Being prepared for the arrival of your baby

As well as clothes and diapers for your newborn, there are several other items that you will ideally have ready before the birth.

  • A crib or MOSES basket for your baby to sleep in and a clean, dry mattress.

  • Suitable bedding for your newborn: either lightweight blankets and sheets or newborn baby sleeping bags.

  • A carriage or stroller to transport your baby. You may also want a front-pack baby carrier or sling to carry your baby around.

  • A baby car seat if you are traveling with your baby in a car.

Baby clothing

When buying clothes for your newborn, bear in mind that babies grow very quickly, so buy just a few items in smaller sizes. Choose easy-to-clean, machine-washable natural fabrics and avoid fussy styles with ribbons or tricky openings, opting instead for easy-to-use snaps. Essential clothing items for your newborn include:

Practical clothing

All-in-one sleepsuits are perfect for newborns, providing easy access for diaper changing and keeping your baby well covered.

  • 3 or 4 tee-shirts.

  • 4 or 5 all-in-one onesies or bodysuits with front-opening snaps.

  • A snowsuit or jacket for outdoors, or a cardigan for warmer months.

  • A wool or fleece hat in the winter months and a light hat for your baby in the summer.

  • Loose-fitting booties or cotton socks.

  • A blanket or shawl for outdoors.

NOTE

It's great to splurge on a couple of new items, but, equally, it's fine to opt for second-hand or handed-down baby goods

NOTE

Hold a baby shower—invite friends over to celebrate the forthcoming arrival and make some helpful gift suggestions!
