Baby Care Guide
As an expectant mother, you may have found yourself getting dizzy by the sheer amount of things you need for your precious baby-on-the-way.
Here we offer a list of must have items you'll need for baby, and nothing you won't! Grab a pen and start making a shopping list for your baby care basket.
Gentle wash is best for babies. Many wash lines now offer a complete body wash for babies that you can use as shampoo as well. Try Organic Baby Skincare, ecoroa Baby Wash, $39 (NZD), made in New Zealand - A safe and effective choice for your baby.
You will definitely get use out of super soft washcloths — for bath time, to clean babies face after feeding times and even for a rousing game of peek-a-boo!
Cloth diapers of yesterday have become today's burp cloths. They are perfect for the job because they are super absorbent and they are big enough to cover big spit ups! You might be surprised how much baby spits up, so stock up on burp cloths. There are also some darling personalised ones that are stylish and functional! Win-win.
Giving baby a good rub down with a generous amount of lotion after bath time will help keep dry skin at bay. Try Organic Baby Skincare, ecoroa Baby Lotion, $40 (NZD), made in New Zealand - A perfect moisturising solution for skin protection.
Whether you use cloth diapers, disposable diapers or a disposable insert diaper, your baby may eventually end up with diaper rash. Protect your baby's bottom by providing a barrier between a wet or dirty diaper. Try Organic Baby Skincare, ecoroa Atocream, $43 (NZD), made in New Zealand - Effective solution for dry and sensitive baby skin.
Protect your baby's sensitive skin with a sunscreen that is specially designed for sensitive skin. Be sure to keep babies out of direct sunlight, even if they are lubed up with sunscreen! Try LA’BONIC Natural Sunscreen Tube NZD$26.80/ 50ml & Roll On NZD$27.60/ 50ml
No-scratch Baby Mitts
Babies often flail their limbs around without total control. So, to keep baby from accidentally scratching his own face or body, get some no-scratch baby mitts.
An infant first aid kit will likely provide everything you will need for a minor incident, including band-aids, gauze, antiseptic pads, tape and more.
Baby Nail Clippers / Nail Files
Baby's little fingernails and toenails are paper-thin, and they grow so fast! Keep them under control with a safety nail clippers. If you're afraid that you might accidentally clip baby instead of his nails, try some tiny baby nail files (and wait until baby goes to sleep!).
Baby's skin is so sensitive that regular detergent might be too harsh and it could irritate her skin. Find a detergent that is specifically designed for baby.
