There are several things that need to be done before the new born is brought back home. Bringing baby home is a great feel to parents and others in the family but need to arrange for clothes and furniture to make the baby comfortable.
One will have to make a detailed list of things that need to be brought including toys, accessories, bedding for the baby. People tend to forget important items that are necessary for the baby. There are several things that need to be taken care of like a cradle, bassinet, crib, changing table and toy chest.
Cradle is first luxurious place where the child sleeps a lot in the first 3 months. This can be borrowed from other family member or friend as it is required for short period of time. Bassinet is useful furniture and it can be taken anywhere. These days bassinet is replaced by baby car that can go everywhere. This can also serve as temporary bed for the child. Crib is a well secured and comfortable corner stone for the baby.
The child can use it till the age of three but some parents shift the child to regular bed after some time. This is available in plastic, wood, metal and plexiglass. One other option is to have a convertible crib that can be used by the child till the age of five. But this is slightly costlier than the regular one.
The other things that need attention are the diaper bag, and a changing table. If one has space then a changing table will be an ideal option which will be convenient to the parents to do the cleaning and changing of clothes for the baby. One can get an integrated bathtub which can be tucked with the changing table when needed.
For the baby clothes a dresser would be sufficient. This can be used to dump the dresses of the baby. The baby will start walking soon and one must look for a toy chest that can be kept in the middle of the room, such that the child has enough space to move around. Ensure to buy all the furniture with safety system so that it is safe for the baby’s little fingers.
