Must haves for babys first year

Apart from some clothes and food items, what else your little one is going to require? While you feel perplexed, let me help you with some imperative tips regarding “what you must have during the first year of your baby.” Remember, whatever you buy is going to be worth the money; even if your little one is just biting the stuff. So, here they go:

Baby Clothes

Virtually, whatever you buy for the baby requires some pre-purchase analysis, especially about quality of the material. Be it kids sleepwear or regular clothing, you have to make sure the quality of the stuff is suitable for your baby’s skin. This is why, cotton fabric is what paediatricians recommend as far as baby clothing is concerned. Moreover, the little one will also need a bunch of clothes in a day. With each of his meal done, he will be needing a new babysuit and same applies when he wakes up from sleep. So, get as many babysuits and t-shirts as possible.


Remember, a quarter of your salary is going to be spent on nappies and you can’t help it. This is something going to be hour’s need. However, the key concern is picking the best quality nappies as the market is full of counterfeit products as well. But, before you jump on the end product, consider a few more factors along. Such as, the cost, health type and of course the environment. Babies are highly responsive to climatic change. For instance – Mommies generally have to change their babies’ nappies more times than usual during a rainy season.

Feeding Requirements

Feeding stuff is of course one of the must-haves. Since for more than a couple of years, you will be a breastfeeding Mommy, you will need some breast pads and nursing bras in order to keep the process healthy for the baby. Also, there will be a need of some more things such as - bottles and then brushes for the bottles, teats, bowls, spoons and bottle sterilisers (for sure).

Baby Bedding Set

A sound sleep is of utmost importance for mental and physical development of your little one. And, the smart way to ensure this is by offering him his very own bedding rather than using the regular one. Although it’s going to be tough for you to assemble the good bedding stuffs for the first time, but with a little help, you can make it possible.

  • First of all, opt for a renowned retailer or wholesaler in your locality and check if he is selling it in loose or a package. Packaged bedding is considered a better choice because they generally come with higher quality content.
  • Check for the fabric of bedding. You are here advised to avoid synthetic fabric and choose cotton. Why cotton is a better choice of course has reasons – #1 Cotton is a natural product and #2 the way it is woven. Cotton is popular for its ability to control moisture, insulate and to add a few more – it is weatherproof, hypoallergenic and a durable fabric.
  • Check for the number of bedding content you are getting in that package, because a standard baby bedding set consists of a couple of pillows along with covers, a bedsheet, a mattress, baby curtains and a quilt.
