Things Parents Should Consider Before The Arrival of A Baby

I believe expectant parents should do their homework and educate themselves in baby 101. I know I may sound like a broken record especially since I recently made a post called, Making simple decisions in preparation for the arrival of a baby, sharing my view on some things soon-to-be parents should keep in mind.  I decided to expand a bit on that post and share a few more things that should be looked into before the big arrival.

  • Stock up on diapers and wipes in large quantities and in various sizes. You will go through these items quickly and they tend to be a bit on the pricey side. Definitely shop around for the best deals - a great source for me was diapers.com
  • Begin to save money as soon as you find out you are expecting. Every little bit helps especially if the baby will be going to daycare once your maternity leave ends
  • If you are having a baby shower, register for things that the baby will use when he/she is older. Booster seat, high chair, potty, walker, etc... - most folks use amazonbabiesrus or targetfor the service
  • You can use cloth diapers as burp clothes (these can be a little expensive for no apparent reason)
  • Don’t go crazy buying too many newborn outfits and shoes (which they will probably grow out of or just wear once) - when purchasing clothing, get the basics in larger sizes; onesies, socks, hats, pj’s, t-shirts, etc. - I went Babiesrus and Target for everything
  • Buy bibs with the waterproof lining – these are great especially when they begin to drool excessively. Babiesrus and Target had a good selection
  • Make plans to set up an educational fund for baby
  • If you have pets, begin to prepare them for the arrival of the baby. The Humane Society of the United States has some pointers that come in handy
  • Be sure to stockpile your freezer with food – once the baby is born, cooking will be the last thing on your mind
  • Plan a getaway or babymoon to get away from it all.
