If you Little new on the way on the way, Here is the large to-do list for baby equipment you must have ready for the baby’s arrival.

The last time before the birth, you want everything ready for your baby’s arrival, and you examine your brain over and over again – have you remembered it all? Here is the complete list of all that must be ready when you come home from the delivery – and what can well wait until you have landed with the baby.

List For Baby Equipment: You Will Thank Yourself If You Have The Following Ready

Baby car seat (for when you have to drive baby home from the hospital in your car or taxi)

Changing table and changing pad (make sure it is water-repellent)

Washbasin (consider a simple, small tub instead of a head/tail dish. It is limited how often you have to wipe the baby’s face the first time)

Disposable washcloths or wet wipes

Diapers (do not buy too many until you know what size to go for)

Cloth nappies, at least 30 (you can not get too many – you still can not wash all the time)

Zinc ointment (when baby gets red butt)


Baby ointment / Vaseline (to protect the buttocks and for the thermometer, if the little one gets sick)

Cotton swabs (initially to clean the baby’s navel)

Bathtub (however, the baby should not take a bath until the umbilical stump has fallen off)

Clothes (lots of short and long-sleeved bodysuits, soft trousers, socks, tights, cotton overalls/nightgowns, hat, knit sweater, possibly fleece flight suit, and mittens. Expect baby to vomit or ‘shit through’ up to several times a day, so it is good to have a change of clothes)

Pacifiers (possibly have different types lying around so you can try your hand at it)

Baby duvet and two to three sets of bedding

Lift (incl. Mattress and sheet) or wax bag

Stroller (incl. Mattress)

Breastfeeding inserts

Breastfeeding bras (they can be difficult to buy before the milk runs out and you know how big your breasts will be. But possibly have a few lying around that your boyfriend can run over and swap if they do not fit )

Large sanitary napkins (you probably bleed a lot after the birth) [List For Baby equipment]
