If you don’t get absolutely everything before baby arrives, don’t stress out. Stores will be there after you have the baby (if you have Amazon Prime, you’ve got free two-day delivery to help you out). It may seem overwhelming at first, but you’ll be surprised to see how fast it all comes together. With every item you add, you’ll see it more clearly in your mind’s eye: the safe, cozy home that’s prepared for baby.
Believe it or not, other young people and their parents are observing and always ask "where'd you get that? We have read and heard that positive compliments make everyone feel special. Imagine how important this makes your little one feel. The messages on the T-shirts are positive. One T-shirt that's a favorite says, "Future Genius", another which is personalized has your favorite University on the front. One even has colorful Math signs like plus, minus signs, etc. Who could resist this?
What’s your baby really going to need when you bring them home from the hospital? Chances are everyone is telling you a different story about what’s a "must-have." To simplify this chaos, we’ve divided our baby essentials checklist into seven tiers from "VERY essential" to "Um, Maybe" with context to help you figure out what’s a "yes" and what’s a "no" for your unique situation.
Humidifier - This was one of the few items I did not receive as a gift before my son was born. Understandably, a humidifier isn’t too exciting. However, since I didn’t receive one as a gift, I blew it off as not very important. I realized how wrong I was when my son got his first cold. When a baby has a cold, there really isn’t much you can do for them in regards to medication (and nose blowing). A humidifier, however, allows your baby to breathe easier, especially in the case of stuffy noses and coughing. Once I got a humidifier, my child slept much better. Tip: Get a humidifier that has a filter and is simple to clean. Consider adding a few drops of an essential oil like eucalyptus to the water or in the medicine well if your humidifier has one. This worked wonders on clearing my son’s most stubborn stuffy noses.
