Essential baby gears you should start arranging

Team AckoFeb 8, 2024

Your baby is barely a few weeks away. You should buy essential baby gears in advance, especially a stroller, crib, car seat, etc. so that you don’t end up facing issues after your baby is born. However, if your family prefers not to buy any stuff before the baby's birth, then keep a list ready with yourself along with the name of the shop from where the stuff can be bought.



This list will help your family member or relatives or whosoever does the shopping for you after the delivery.

Some parents don’t prefer to buy any stuff for baby until they find out the gender of the baby. If you are one of them, then you could buy few clothes in unisex colors (red, green or yellow) for the initial days. This will ensure that you will have something in hand for your kiddo once he or she is born.

Baby essentials to buy before bringing the baby home:

Nappies, diapers and diaper bag Buy a disposable diaper or the cloth one but both are a necessity especially for the initial days. Diaper bag with plenty of pockets should be considered.

Diaper Cream One of the most important things, which should be purchased along with the diapers is rash free cream.

Breast Pump and Baby Bottles If you plan to breastfeed your baby, then buying a breast pump should be one of the important items in your list. And don’t forget to buy those tiny cute feeding bottles for your baby.

Nursing Wear Buy nursing night suits and nursing bras which helps to ease the process of breastfeeding. It is good to buy breast pads too so you don’t leak through all your tops.

Baby Gear There are plenty of options available but buy which you think would be useful for you and your baby. Options can be car seat, crib, bouncer, stroller, swing etc.

Swaddling Blankets Don’t forget to buy swaddling blankets as they will help you to soothe your baby.

Bibs and Hankies This goes without saying, you need them as your tiny one will spit a lot. Buy them in bulk.

Bath Essentials Buy a mild baby wash, shampoo, soft hair brush and not to forget baby lotion which is a must have item.
