Being an expectant mother means you are going to be full of anticipation and excitement over the soon to be arriving baby. You‚Äôve probably been staying up nights figuring out names and attending baby showers. You‚Äôve probably also done a lot of research on how to be a good mother. Now it‚Äôs time to focus and really get prepared for the arrival before the baby actually arrives. Your nursery needs to be set up and equipped.
In choosing furniture, you‚Äôll want to choose cleverly, many items can grow with your baby, that means less money spent in purchasing replacements such as cribs, when there are cribs available that will convert to a toddler bed. Other items may be a changing table with diaper pail, possibly a bath tub, definitely a stroller and a playpen. You will also need a car seat and maybe a baby monitor.
You‚Äôll need something to cloth your baby in and if you don‚Äôt know the gender yet, you can get clothes that will work regardless of the gender. You‚Äôll want blankets, socks, mitts and general comfy clothing. You will also need car items such as diapers, wipes, ointments, shampoo and a baby body wash. You may want to take a quiet moment and write down everything you think you need in preparation for the arrival, then cross out the things you already have through gifts and purchases. What you have left will be your shopping list.
