I’ve been scouring different websites on the internet for baby stuff. And I was able to summarize the lists that I got from all of them. It’s a lot but I believe it’s very necessary for the baby.

Bath time should always be fun! Relax and play with the baby a little before you begin. TIP: Ensure that the water should be around body temperature. Practical way is to test with the underside of your wrist. To be specific, it should be at 32-35 degrees C/90-95 degrees F. Bath should be quick and do not rub him with a towel to dry him off but pat gently instead.

Sleeping

• Crib
• Crib Sheets
• Musical Mobile for Crib
• Mattress Pads for Crib
• Bassinet
• Light Blankets
• Heavy Blankets
• Pillow

Dreamfeed is the feeding given to the baby right before you go to bed, and it helps prevent the him/her from waking up. TIP: Develop a routine for your baby in order for him or her to easily adjust their night sleep and midday nap.

Travel And Others

• Stroller
• Carrier
• Plush Toy
• Diaper Bag
• Changing Pads
• Wipes



When traveling, always sit next to your baby. You are his home and will always look for you. Make sure you always have extra clothing and diapers during travel. And don’t forget to include your his favorite toy to keep him preoccupied.
