Above all, CONGRATULATIONS! You have a new baby! Then, on to other stuff. You ‘re getting ready for your new baby, emotionally, physically, and you’re going to have to change your house and car for the new baby too!
Mentally Preparing for the New Baby
Note, women adapt quicker than men to have a new infant, so don’t expect husbands to pretend to be fatherly until the pregnancies are confirmed. That’s not how it is. Women adapt better to the new baby, mentally, physically, and psychologically, as they change. Such modifications enable them to adjust to the new child more easily. Yet when men see the swell or feel the flicker of infant movement around the womb of mommy, they still sense the new boy.
Physically Preparing for the New Baby
A new father will do little to help the new infant. What a parent has to do AFTER the new child is born. However, after a new baby has been taken, the new dad will try to quit smoking, stop drinking, and other vices. The new mother will, of course, do the same thing, too.
Planning for the New Baby: The House and Car
For the new baby, the shift in your home depends on whether you want to be part of your baby or whether you want to plonch your baby in a separate room. In any case, we encourage you to give your new infant a separate bedroom even though, for the first couple of months, the new baby must sleep with the new parents. A cot, some toys, a place where all the clothes of a baby, shelves can be placed near the changing table and luxurious lotions, creams, diaper wipes, diapers, etc. must be removed.
There’ll also be a baby chair, house baby chair (at the right level of the dining table), and a car baby chair (for travel). Some baby chairs can be fitted to the adult restaurant AND fit into the car simultaneously. These chairs are slightly more expensive than traditional baby chairs, but the multi-function is exceptionally convenient.
Other Essential Stuff
Frankly speaking, the essentials depend wholly on your preference, budget, and lifestyle. You’ll live without a number of this stuff if you think that you’d rather not waste the cash.
If you’ve had previous babies before, you almost certainly don’t need too many new baby clothes. New babies outgrow their clothes fast, and it would be a waste of cash to splurge on new clothes. You’ll get hand-me-downs from nieces and nephews too if you would like. What you ought to probably get are blankets, sweaters, coats, and garments for going out. At home, your new baby’s not getting to mind old clothes. Its an indisputable fact that your new baby is perhaps getting to like wearing old clothes better than new clothes. Do not forget the feeding utensils like baby bowls, breast pump (if you’re getting to pump breast milk for your new baby at work), baby bottles, cloth nappies, diapers, baby wipes, lotions, shampoo, bath gels, towels, baby blankets, baby bedding, bibs, stroller, etc.
And don’t worry, you’ll do fine. The best thing to do is to get unbiased referrals from friends and family.
