Well-Planned Diapers and Wipes. Registering for diapers is a smart thing to do, and we have lots of ideas for getting diapers at your baby shower. Will you use cloth or disposable diapers (or both)? If you get disposable diapers, we recommend gift cards or diaper delivery subscriptions with places like Amazon or the Honest Company. Otherwise, a couple boxes of newborn, 4-6 boxes of Size 1, and a couple boxes of Size 2 will get you off to a good start. If you’re considering cloth diapers, here’s our guide to the different kinds. They’re less of a pain to wash than you might think, or you can hire a service to wash for you. A newborn poops about ten times a day (older babies less often) so buy a quantity that supports how often you want to do laundry.
Postpartum Care Products and Doula Services: In terms of products, nipple cream or gel packs can provide pain relief when adjusting to breastfeeding, and a sitz bath can relieve pain from childbirth recovery. Postpartum doulas are also a great service that teach newborn parenting skills, help around the house, answer your questions, and just generally assist you in adapting to life as a new parent.
Genius Baby Gear is fun, reasonably priced that helps you get your baby on a bright, fun learning adventure. Their products have been around for a while and are known for their savvy approach toward teaching young growing minds. T-Shirts - Once you try these bright, bold clothing items you will always want your child wearing them. The picture and wording on the clothes draw your attention to the details.
Cozy Swaddles - Wrap your baby up in a blanket like a little baby burrito, and they’ll be soothingly reminded of the womb. Since they wake up and cry when they wriggle free, an escape-proof swaddle is ideal, but it’s also got to be user friendly for a sleep-deprived parent. Socks - You’re looking for the ones that are good at staying on the baby’s feet, otherwise the perpetual missing sock hunt will drive you crazy. Hats - Many people believe that babies should wear hats all the time, but actually babies can go hatless between 55-75 degrees Fahrenheit. Still, it’s good to have a few (in varying sizes; baby’s head will change size fast).
