Baby care items are typically what we refer to as the smaller “healthcare” items that you will need to care & groom your little one.
There are a lot of kits out there that feature various nail clippers, emery boards, combs, brushes, etc. From what I’ve learned, the first things you will need upon your arrival home with your newest bundle of joy include the following:
- Emery boards: Your baby’s nails are pretty soft so you can file them down at first. Once your baby gets a little older, you will need to use the nail clippers
- Baby mitts: These are to help prevent baby from scratching her little face
- A nasal bulb: They usually give you one in the hospital but it is good to have an extra one on hand at home
- A soft brush: This one all depends on how much hair your little one has! (which my Pinkie Pie had none & still has none)
Another big baby care essential item in my opinion is the humidifier. When baby starts to get a little stuffy, you can use the nasal aspirator & a humidifier to help baby breathe a little easier (also, once baby is officially in her room, you will need a good monitor so you can “breathe easier” knowing that you can hear your little one).
This is a basic list that I feel worked for me. What would you add to this list?
