Preparing Your Home for New Baby


Preparing your home for your first baby is a wonderful experience. Your nesting instincts are in full force as you near your due date, but it can also be a confusing and potentially overwhelming time. Technology and products for babies are more widely available than ever which is great, but it also means that there are a lot of choices to make when it comes to finding the equipment and kit you need. To help you get started in your research, here are 6 baby gadgets which will make welcoming your first baby as stress-free and simple as possible.

1. Stroller


Your stroller will be one of the most important purchases you make as new parents as it’s what will help you get out about as a family, building memories. From the basic but easy to use to the high-tech models which use kinetic energy to charge your cellphone, there are lots of different types of strollers to choose from. Your choice is likely to come down to what you plan on using it for. Compare as many stroller types and prices as you can before settling on one.

2. White Noise Generator

Even people without children know that getting a baby to sleep is one of the biggest challenges of early parenthood. For this reason, you should consider investing in a white noise generator which, as the name suggests, produces white noise. This can remind the baby of being inside the womb and help them to feel calm and safe, so they drop off more easily.

3. Humidifier

When your baby arrives, their skin will be very sensitive so if you live in a dry climate you may want to invest in a humidifier. This will replenish moisture in the air and prevent irritation, and it has the potential side-benefit of producing a low-level white noise, so it can even help to relax the baby.

4. Baby Monitor

Baby monitors have been around for a long time, alerting parents to their baby’s crying when they are in another area of the house. However, baby monitor technology has moved on considerably since they were first invented. Some include video as well as audio so you can keep an eye on your baby all the time if you need to.

5. Bath Thermometer

When you bath your new baby, you will need to check the temperature of the water before you put the baby in the tub. To avoid any uncertainty, you can get a bath thermometer which will accurately measure how hot the water is. If you opt for a floating thermometer you can leave it in the water, so you have a continuous reading and peace of mind.

6. Microwave Bottle Sanitizer

To protect your baby from germs and bacteria when washing your baby’s bottle, you should get a microwave bottle sanitizer. You can add several bottles at once to make the process quick and easy. Read more about why you need a bottle sterilizer here.
