Saving Tips 12/09/2018

Everything you need to buy for a newborn baby

A baby is a new chapter for every family. The little thing will change your life. Ever since I got pregnant, all baby stuff looked so adorable that I wish I could buy everything home. However, some of them are necessary or helpful while a lot of the cute stuff is dispensable. So what on earth do you need to prepare before you give birth, what are necessities for a new baby? The article will list all necessities based on four categories: Feeding, Clothing, On the Way and Living.



Newborn Baby Feeding

At least 2 Nursing Bottles (Glass or BPA Free. Glass is recommended for daily use. BPA Free is recommended for use outdoors in case of breaking.) and Nipples

Bottle/nipple Brushes

Baby Bottle Cleanser

Bottle Sterilizer (Nursing Bottles should be sterilized every time after use.)

Lots of Nursing Pads (if you are breast feeding mom)

Nursing Bras

Nipple Cream (if you are breast feeding mom)

Brest Bumper + Milk Storage Bottle/Bag (if you are breast feeding and working mom)

Bottle Warmer

Formula Milk (Just in case you cannot breast feed your baby.)

Nursing Pillow (Believe me, it will relief your waist.)



Newborn Baby Clothing

Several Burp Clothing

Lots of Drool Bibs

6 – 8 Onesies (mix of short-sleeve and long-sleeve) and 2 – 3 outfits (if your baby is coming in winter)

3 – 5 Pants

6 stretchy Sleepers

6 pairs of socks to wear with onesies and Sleepers if not foot covered

2 pair of Cotton Mittens to prevent babies from scratching themselves

3 large blankets (1 lightweight and 2 swaddling blankets)

Diaper Bag (you’ll be impressed by how many things you need to bring when a baby is going out with you)



Newborn Baby Living

- Sleeping

Crib and Crib Mattress (If your baby sleeps with you, you can also choose co-sleeping crib/cradle)

2 – 3 Mattress Covers

2 light Blankets

2 waterproof Bed Pads (use when you change diapers or anytime when you feel it’s needed)

Crib Liner (Helps prevent arms and legs from getting stuck between crib slats)

- Bathing

Bathing Tub

2 Baby Hooded Towels

6 – 8 Washcloths (2 for face and others for bottom)

Baby Lotion for face and body

Baby Shampoo and Body Wash (prepare this but donot use too often)

Soft Baby Hair Brush

Baby Nail Clipper (baby’s nails grow crazily)

- Diapers

Diaper Changing Pad

Lots of Baby Wipes

Lots of Baby Dry Wipes

Diaper Cream or Ointment (for diaper rash)

Diaper Pail

There is no right answer between disposable diapers or reusable cloth diapers

  • If you choose Disposable Diapers: prepare 1 month supply of New Born size Diapers (a new born usually needs around 6 diapers per day; don’t buy too many in case your baby is big or grows quickly)
  • If you choose Cloth Diapers: prepare 2 – 3 dozens Cloth Diapers and safety Diaper Pins to secure reusable diapers
