Your Baby?s Nursery ? What You Will Need

As an expectant mother, you are full of excitement and anticipation for the arrival of your little baby. You are picking out names, attending baby showers, and learning all there is to know about being a mother. One good and productive way to channel some of this excitement is to prepare the nursery in advance. Some items you will need are listed below.

Furniture

When choosing furniture, you will want to think about items that can grow up with your baby. You will need a crib and mattress along with sheets, a mattress cover, crib bumpers, and a mobile to hang from the crib to keep your baby entertained. If your room is large enough, you may want to get a changing table with a diaper pail nearby. The baby bathtubs are very useful as is a high chair, bouncer seat, stroller, and play pen. You will also need a car seat, and most mothers feel better using a baby monitor.

Clothing

For outfitting your little new born, you need a take home outfit, receiving blankets, socks or booties, sleepers, various other clothing pieces, and mitts to keep the baby from scratching itself.

Basic Necessities

Among the items you will need to care for your baby include diapers, baby wipes, diaper rash ointment, diaper bag, baby shampoo, and baby body wash.

In addition to the things listed above, there are many, many more items available to make your life with a baby easier.
