Newborn Checklist

Essentials you must have in your checklist before your baby arrives 

 

You have a new baby on the way? Congratulations!
Planning for your little one’s arrival is an exciting time and can be a great deal of fun, but it might also be a little bit stressful as you try to ensure that you will have everything that you need. You don’t want to miss anything and find yourself needing to go shopping again once baby has arrived. That is time to be spent at home, resting, recuperating, and enjoying your new arrival.

With your due date approaching, you may be hard at work decorating. The nursery might need to be painted, or wall decals might be waiting to go up. Perhaps you are searching for the perfect accessories and furniture, like a comfortable nursing chair. Preparing for a baby— especially if it’s your first—can be somewhat daunting. It might even seem a little overwhelming. No need to fret though, we have built a newborn baby checklist of the essentials and fun to have baby items to help you with this transition. 

While you are sure to remember all the big things, some of the smaller items could pass under the radar. That is why it’s a great idea to put together a checklist of all your newborn needs. Staying organized will help ensure that you don’t miss a thing. We at Mountains & Meadows would like to help you out, so we have put together a list of all the common, less common, and easily overlooked items that you might want to consider.

This Baby Checklist will prepare you for your new arrival!
