What Baby Gear Do You Need for Your Newborn?


Baby Gear: Nonessentials (But Nice to Have)

  • Baby monitor
  • Swing
  • Baby book: Essential if you want to record your baby's firsts.
  • Infant seat: A "bouncy" seat or swing are great! It gives you a safe place to put baby while you do things for yourself.
  • High chair: You will use it when baby is 4 to 6 months old.
  • Baby sling or pouch: These come in handy when you need to have your hands free to get things done around the house, but still carry your baby.
