Baby Supply Checklist

If you are reading this, congratulations are probably in order! Preparing for your baby’s arrival is a fun and exciting time.

A Baby Supply Checklist is essential when getting ready to welcome your newborn. There are so many “must have” items that can easily be overlooked as your due date approaches. Don’t wait until the last minute to consider what you will need.

Armed with your baby supply checklist, the goal here is to equip your house and nursery to the best of your ability. The items you choose need to make your new life with your child easier. Pick items with your baby and lifestyle in mind. There are a few items you cannot do without. Take care of the crucial items first and then start adding optional ones.

Sure, we would love to have it all but most of us aren’t able to purchase each and every thing we see. There is tons of stuff out there geared toward your child but stay focused and make practical decisions.

Please know that this baby supply checklist is only a guide. You will definitely want to personalize and adjust it to fit your needs. Many new parents are overwhelmed when seeing so many items. Believe it or not, you will probably think of some very important things that are not listed here.

Don’t let this bewilder you. The sooner you start the more you can accumulate before the big day. Don’t worry if you can’t get everything! Many moms have made it wonderfully without a rocker, play mat, mobile, or pack and play.

It is important to actively prepare. Have fun doing it. Anticipate the day that you will see your baby’s face for the first time, and know that you have everything ready and waiting for your bundle of joy thanks to your well thought out baby supply checklist.
