New Baby Products for Clothing

1.      Newborn Swaddle

When I was preparing for my due date, I bought lots of stuff for my baby and one of this is the swaddle. I researched about swaddles and they really give great comforts to newborns.[1] I bought a cotton swaddle and a foam swaddle, and personally, I recommend the foam swaddle because it is easier to use. You can put this foam swaddle on your baby’s crib and when you are done putting your baby to sleep in your arms; you can lay down your baby and do the swaddling while your baby is asleep.

When you are preparing for the coming of your baby, you do not just buy newborn clothes. Instead, you try to buy clothes up 12 to 24 months. When you have all of these stuff, the tendency is that the clothes get mixed together and it is kind of hard to find the right clothes for your baby unless you look at their sizes one by one.

If you want to get a little more organized, I recommend these baby closet dividers. They are the ones I used in separating my baby’s clothes and even if I am not around, my husband knows what to use for our baby!

How often do you bathe a newborn?

Giving bath to your baby daily can dry their skin. Since your newborn baby is not that mobile yet, giving your baby a bath three to four times a week is enough.

How soon can you take a newborn out?

Some recommend that you must wait for a baby to turn one month old before you take them out. However, there is no specific rule about this. You can freely take your baby out as long as you use the products that can keep your baby safe.

How do you clean a newborn’s face?

You can clean your baby’s face by washing it gently using washcloth or cotton balls. If your baby is just a few days old, try to avoid using any soap.
