New Baby Checklist – What you actually need.

Congratulations! You’re expecting!

I know how overwhelming it can all feel, where do you even start with preparing for your new baby?

There is so much out there available for you and your baby, however we’ve carefully created this New Baby Checklist to include what you actually need!

I’ve also made this resource a FREE download.

Simply scroll down to the bottom of this post for the New Baby Checklist.

We’ve already covered the hospital stay – head over to hospital bag checklist post for more info.

The most important thing is to remember that baby has to travel home in a suitable capsule from hospital and it’s best to get it fitted by a professional nice and early, (you never know when baby is going to arrive!)

We know how much it can cost when preparing for your new baby, we recommend keeping this list handy and trying to shop one item per week, try purchasing on sale items and splurge on special items or ones you’ll use daily i.e. swaddles/heirloom blankets etc. We know for sure this will help the budget!

Ask for advice – I know, you’re probably already bombarded with information, but to get the most out of a conversation with another mummy, why not utilise the time and ask the important questions, like, “what is the one thing she couldn’t go without when having her baby?”, this will cut through all the unsolicited advice and get down to the nitty gritty stuff that’s required.

Lastly, Congratulations Mumma, such exciting news! I hope this article helps and that the list is of use to you!
If there’s anything you think I’ve missed or you have any advice, pop it in the comment thread below!

Best wishes for the arrival of your little one,
