5 Things You Need to Do to Get Your Home Newborn-Ready

Are you expecting a baby soon? If so, then it’s time for you to make sure that your house is ready for your little one! Every parent has to make sure that their home is ready to take on the challenge of taking care a newborn. A new-born baby is very sensitive to its environment, so we have to be vigilant in assuring that they grow up in a home fit for them. If you have secured your house’s cleanliness, you can now do the following steps:

How to Get Ready For Baby's Arrival

1. Install a car seat

This may not be fun for you but take the time to do it right. If you can’t, have at least a pro to do it so that you won’t be fumbling with the task on the way home from the hospital after giving birth. This way, you and your significant other won’t be too paranoid over your little one when the three of you are going out on family trips.

2. Look for a pediatrician

Have not found the right doctor for your little one? Start looking for one right now! Ask your fellow mom friends who their kids see and book a prenatal consultation with your top choice. Remember, you will be seeing this person a lot and probably even call with new-mom concerns, so you want to feel comfortable with her.

3. Learn how to use the baby carrier and stroller

Getting out of the house with a baby takes time, which is why new moms can be late for things. Before your newborn arrives, figure out on how to use the carrier and stroller. Watch videos online or read instruction manuals then practice so you will get a hang of things. This way, you will avoid being late for pediatrician appointments or a lunch date with your fellow mom friends.

4. Get your hospital bag ready

Don’t wait until the last minute to pack your hospital bag. Once the labor pains begin, you won’t be able to think about anything else but your and your baby’s safety. Prepare the necessities you know will make you feel comfortable like an extra comfortable bed sheet, your favorite maternal dress, socks, and underwear. Try not to pack pajamas, because after your labor, you just want to slip on something easy to wear and comfortable at the same time so pack wisely.

5. Pick out your baby's Going-Home Outfit

Yes, your baby will look adorable in a hospital-provided cap and plain white kimono top. However, he will look sweeter in a special going-home outfit that you and your husband picked together. Pick out the softest and easiest-to-put clothing you can find. Try a cotton kimono-style top with matching pants to give your baby that irresistibly cute vibe when you go home.

When you are 7-8 months pregnant, you may want to do nothing but to sit down and be in serious mother hen mode while staring at a long to-do list. Just make sure everything in your household is squeaky clean, so you don’t have to call pest control services. Insects, especially the disease-carrying ones, are the last thing you want to make contact with your newborn. Don’t worry, future mom! These fun tips will help you before your baby's expected due date.
