Tips to prepare for baby’s arrival

Well, your big day is getting close! Preparing to welcome a baby goes beyond the shopping list for diapers and onesies. Here are some useful tips that will help make the adjustment-to-baby period a little easier.


1) It’s true – it really does take a village.

Let your family and friends know ahead of time if you’ll need their help. They may be able to take some time off work to help out as you and baby are adjusting to life together.

Tell a friend

2) Freezer prep before the baby arrives.

Cook and freeze as many meals as you can for breakfast, lunch, dinner and even snacks.

3) Put your baby’s clothes and bedding through the wash.

Use a gentle detergent for a newborn’s sensitive and delicate skin. Having everything clean and ready to go will make cleaning up inevitable mishaps that much easier.

4) Prepare your pets.

Make an informal introduction to your baby by having your pets smell the newly washed clothes to get used to the new scent.

5) Get your car baby-ready.

Make sure your baby seat is installed to meet legal requirements and familiarize yourself by practicing mounting and removing the seat a few times.

6) Missing any last-minute baby things?

Don’t run to the store, use Amazon prime and just get everything delivered to you quickly.
