Baby’s room – Help your partner in shopping

Introduction to Newborn Baby Checklist

Baby’s room – Help your partner in shopping Even if the future mother usually decides the shopping list during pregnancy, the husband must show his support, and also his advices about the respective problems. However, as it seems like the women usually find those talks as reasons for fights, the father must use diplomacy. For example, even if you don’t approve with some points on the baby checklist, it is possible to tell your wife your complaints in a diplomatic way.

The baby supplies must be bought by both of the partners, especially during the first months of pregnancy, when the woman can still walk freely. During the last months, the partners must decide about the list together, but only the father would go to the store to buy those.

What Does the Newborn checklist consist of?


Here is an effective newborn checklist, and some items that are mandatory for this list:

  • Books about pregnancy – even if the internet is a reliable source of information, you might also use some alternative informative channels, especially books that are written by reputed pediatricians and gynecologists. Of course, you can also buy those books online, in a .PDF format, and this way, you will save precious time and money.
  • New clothes for your wife – maybe the belly is not rounded yet, but it is possible for the pants to become tight, and this might happen even during the first weeks of pregnancy. The new baby checklist must contain a pair of special pants for pregnant ladies, with a wide band on the waist that will be really useful for the last months of pregnancy. Even if the belly is not big, you should not bother it with tight clothes.
  • Your mouth might have the tendency to dry, and this is why you should think about taking care of your mouth. The pregnant woman must visit a dentist, as this specialist is able to recommend him the most effective products. Of course, the baby list must contain milk, cheese and yogurt, as the baby needs calcium for developing the bones.

During the second trimester of pregnancy, the family must start to think about the items that are needed to be bought for the child. Here is an effective newborn baby checklist:

  • Furniture accessories: besides the baby bed, it is important to buy a changing table, a closet, and a small table for the baby’s room.
  • Electric accessories – in our modern world, it is impossible not to buy a baby talk device. This modern automated device would announce you about what happens in the baby’s room, from an abnormal temperature to an increased humidity. It also has an audio feature that allows you to hear the baby whenever you want. The system is activated by moves and noises in the room of the baby, but you can also launch it by yourself.
  • Toys – even if the baby is not born yet, you can think about the toys he might need. Of course, this aspect is a little delicate if you don’t know the sex of the future baby, so you should be really careful about the toys you buy. On the internet, you can find suggestions about the toys that are designed for boys and girls at the same time.

One pf the important baby items list must contain articles for feeding the baby, and also a pillow to sustain the baby’s head. The woman will need creams, and a breast pump.

The list of baby items contains diapers, as for the first weeks, the baby will need about 8-12 diapers every day. As the young father might be at work during the day, and you won’t probably be able to get out of the house, you will need to be sure that the baby shopping list contains all those items.

Another one of the things needed for a baby is a small tub, and it is really necessary, as you will need it every day.

The chair is also necessary. With hundreds of models in the stores, you can find one that is easily maneuvered. Make sure the model is also adaptable to the car, as in this way, you will save some serious money. On the other hand, some families prefer to have a wheel chair and a separated chair for the car, because those offer an increased comfort.
