A baby is such a small vulnerable little human that needs our love and care all throughout their life. It is our responsibility to take care of them and provide them with comfort right from the start. Babies are so delicate and fragile that they must be handled very carefully and there are a few delicate items that are needed for every newborn baby. These essential items need to be on every new mom’s checklist as they are not simply things that would be convenient for the mother but are in fact necessary to take care of the baby and ensure they are comfortable.

Plenty of Diapers
Babies are naturally poop machines when they are born and up to a certain age so you can never have enough diapers.

Soft Wash Clothes and Unscented Baby Wipes
Babies need a lot of wiping, and I mean a lot. They constantly need to be cleaned, whether it’s a milk spill or when changing a diaper, there is always something to wipe. This constant wiping continues for quite a while in a baby’s life until they are at the age where they understand not to spill things. Keeping this in mind, it is a good idea to have some soft wash clothes ready for when your baby is arriving. Choose delicate materials that would be comfortable and gentle on your baby’s skin. Keep in mind that their skin is extremely fragile until a certain age. Choose unscented wipes rather than scented ones because scented ones contain chemicals that may be harmful to your baby.
Diaper Creams and Powders
When babies are constantly wearing diapers, they have the tendency to develop diaper rashes and just general rashes. This is mainly due to the heat being trapped within the baby unable to escape and causes heat rashes. Have some diaper cream and powder ready for when you are changing your baby’s diaper. This will keep them dry and prevent rashes.
