Are you looking for a newborn checklist? The newborn baby checklist helps you keep track of the things you need to buy before you run to the labor room.
Shopping for a newborn can be very exciting, especially if you are a first-time parent, and more so if you love to shop. You may want to buy the entire world for your new arrival; but you also need to be realistic, prudent and frugal enough to realize that newborn baby items, specially the clothes and shoes, would only last for a couple of months till the newborn outgrows them to a larger size.
The size of a full-term newborn baby is known as size zero. Preemie sizes are also available in most of the clothing stores and often referred to as size Preemie or XS.
Some of the items in the following newborn checklist may not be for you. This list is made to provide maximum help to you, but you need to use your own judgement to decide about the final purchase.
For example, if you already have some hand-me-down newborn baby clothes, you may want to cut down some of the items on the newborn checklist.
The following newborn checklist has been divided into categories to make it easy for you to understand. An easier-to-follow printable version has also been attached here. Print this newborn list (click to download the list) before going out for shopping, highlight the items you need to buy and cross them as you make the purchase. This will make your shopping a breeze.
Remember, when it comes to 'style versus comfort', comfort is always the winner.
Breastfeeding may require some additional accessories for your convenience.
Finishing up your newborn's shopping in advance and preparing a baby bag to take it to hospital (if required) is a good idea. You never know when the water is going to break, and the last thing you want would be to run to the shops with a newborn.
Items required when you go out with your baby:
The baby bag will carry an extra pair of clothes, diapers, baby lotion, wipes, a small toy or rattle, plastic bag to throw the dirty diaper in, baby bibs and powdered formula milk along with a sterilized baby bottle (provided your infant takes formula milk).
