Once the baby arrives home, you have to make everything in your home baby-sized with anything from kitchen tools to things you need to place in bathroom. So where and how do you get started and how do you know what is best?
Starting with the bedroom, apart from the cradle, there are other things that you can add in your room to make sure your child can safely play indoors. One of them is the play yard. No, this does not mean you need to create a sandbox, but this is simply a redesigned crib that allows the child to play inside it without needing to lock the child up with safety gates.
There are other fun things that you can add in your room like the swing, with a hard base so it won’t slip and a doorway jumper. In case your child is old enough to stop using diapers, make sure you have a potty that is specially designed for children.
Baby monitor is another useful gear that helps you keep a check on your baby without the need of staying close. Another most commonly used gear are the cute pacifiers that the babies just can’t seem to get enough of.
Coming to the kitchen, a must have is a high-chair for the baby to sit on and relax so you can easily feed them. Make sure that you place a chair that holds the baby securely so they won’t fall. The cup you use to feed the baby with liquids also need to be securely closed with a tight lid. Also make sure the spoon you use is soft enough for the baby’s gums.
Keeping your bedroom ready for the baby is not enough. You need a baby nursery as well. Exersaucer is an interesting toy for children that allows them to jump and play around without having to get out of it and makes sure they don’t roll or fall out.
Also make sure the crib you choose for your baby comes with all the safety gears and not something that allows them to crawl out easily. You might also want to add a baby gate that allows the baby to play around the room without getting out.
