First-time parents’ baby nursery checklist

Figuring out how to fill the baby nursery for the first time can feel daunting. We’ll simplify it for you. Here’s a brief checklist of the baby gear you will need. 

  1. The most important baby nursery furniture: The crib. Want an heirloom look? Shop classic wooden cribs and covered bassinets. More modern cribs have built-in motion features to help soothe the baby while you try to sleep. Crib sheets are a must. Swaddling blankets and sleeping sacks help the baby settle down for nap time.
  2. On-the-go helpers: Car seat and stroller. These are one of the biggest purchases. You will use them a lot, so make sure whichever style you choose – works for your lifestyle. Active moms may want a jogger stroller too.
  3. Diaper essentials. Figure out what diapering strategy you’d like to go with early: reusable cloth diapers or disposable diapers? Changing pads and tables will make diaper changes more comfy for baby (and you!). Other helpful accessories include diaper rash cream, wipes and diaper pails.
  4. Feeding basics: Bottles, bottle warmers, breast pumps, bibs and high chairs. Oh, and don’t forget the burp clothes! They will save your favorite shirts!  
  5. The fun stuff: Regular play will help your baby develop their sensory and motor skills. Bath toys, teethers, developmental toys — you name it, we’ve got you and baby covered.  

The best baby supplies for a baby shower gift  

If you’re on a budget and shopping for a baby gift, consider splitting a larger item between one or two other people. For new families, cribs and strollers can be harder purchases to save up for. By splitting one of these items with others, you save money while also relieving a little stress from the expecting parents. Put together a basket with a bunch of small newborn baby essentials like pacifiers, bottles, diapers and bath toys. Want to give a gift that comes from the heart? Gift one of your favorite books from when you were a baby or a special keepsake album the new parents can add memories to.
