Being a first-time mom can be very overwhelming. You will come across lots of baby items that you just cannot resist buying but not everything deserves to be in your bag. Lots of parents impulsively and regret their purchases later. If you don’t want to end up like these moms, you have come to the right. Have a look at the list of must-have Japanese baby products for the first-time moms:
This is the first basic baby product you need to purchase. Along with diapers, don’t forget to stash wipes and diaper liners. Make sure they are premium diapers that don’t leave a rash on your baby’s skin.
You won’t be able to keep your hands off tiny baby clothes. But before you buy everything you see, it is important to see if those clothes are actually comfy for your baby. Here is the list of clothes that must be in your baby’s wardrobe:
- Blanket sleepers (in case it will be a winter baby)
- Sweater or jackets
- Socks and booties
Have 4 to 8 pairs of each of the above.
Yes, you will have to prepare for the nursery. It is not just décor that counts, but also the furniture. The following items are a must-have in your baby’s nursery:
- Armchair or a rocking chair
- Toy basket
- Baby monitor
Babies sure can be messy. You will need something to clean when they burp and no a tissue won’t be enough. Instead, a burp cloth is best for cleanups. Go for the one that is extra absorbent.
Where are you going to keep the wipes, diapers, bottles and your baby’s blanket? Of course, you will need a bag in which you can fit all the Japanese baby products. Pick the one that has compartments so that you can keep everything organized and use readily whenever you need.
While you are performing household tasks, it is actually quite convenient if you have a baby carrier. Your baby will feel comfortable and it is great for bonding too.
Some people say that a changing pad is not necessary since you can change your baby’s clothes on the bed or a rug. But having a changing pad is actually more convenient for you as a mother. It is easier on your back and it will give you a place to keep the baby wipes, diapers and anything else you need in just a hand’s distance.
Some babies like swaddling so get a swaddling blanket for your baby. You will be glad to know that these blankets can be used for a variety of purposes such as tummy time and cuddling.
Pick a stroller that has a built-in basket underneath to carry stuff when you are on the go. It should be lightweight and easy to open since you will have to be carrying it in your car.
The list of Japanese baby products can just go on and on. If a friend or someone in the family recently gave birth, do take their advice on what baby products to buy.
