We’re making a layette for a newborn and mom!

Remember your joy when you discovered you were going to be a mom? Pregnancy is a beautiful time. It is true that it is not always colorful, but someday you will remember these moments with fondness. Now you have to take care of yourself and your baby. Think about the layette as well. Compile the necessary items to avoid stress in the zero hour. See what should be on the layette for a newborn and the mother!

Layette for a newborn

Take care of the right amount of clothes, but do not overdo it. You should not have to do laundry every day. It is enough if you do them every 3-4 days. Most hospitals offer their own clothes for newborns. If your facility also offers this, take advantage of it. What should be in a hospital bag for a baby? Actually, it depends on the specific institution. What can you not forget about when shopping for your baby? Below is a list of essential items.

Hygiene:

  • pampers,
  • flannel diapers (about 5 pcs.),
  • tetras (approx. 20 pcs.),
  • anti-burn cream,
  • cotton buds,
  • cotton balls,
  • wet wipes for babies,
  • changing pads,
  • bath towel,
  • emollient,
  • nail scissors,
  • hypoallergenic laundry detergent,
  • nasal aspirator.

Clothes:

  • long-sleeved and short-sleeved bodysuits (about 5 pieces of each type),
  • cap (2 pcs),
  • socks (4-5 pairs),
  • rompers (about 5 each).

It is also worth considering buying an overalls. Its thickness should be adjusted according to the season. Some people also use non-scratch gloves. I hardly used them at all.

Essentials:

  • a pacifier,
  • bottles with nipples (2 pieces),
  • a cone,
  • butterfly pillow,
  • blanket,
  • crib,
  • bedding (2-3 sets),
  • mattress,
  • bathtub,
  • car seat,
  • stroller,
  • thermometer,
  • bathtub.

When preparing a layette for the baby, it is worth to take advantage of sales. In this way you can save a considerable amount of money. It is not worth spending too much money on clothes, because the newborn will grow out of them quickly. Besides, there is a big chance that they will get damaged. Recently it has become very fashionable to buy second-hand clothes.

Do not postpone purchases until the last minute. The closer you get to the solution, the less strength you will have. It is best to do your shopping at the end of the 2nd or at the beginning of the 3rd trimester. Thanks to this you will avoid stress and you will have time to prepare for the arrival of your beloved child.

  • birth plan,
  • up-to-date medical examinations (last ultrasound, blood count and urinalysis, blood group with RH factor, examinations done during the 3rd trimester)
  • identity card,
  • employer’s data.

Clothing:

  • shirts to facilitate breastfeeding,
  • breastfeeding bras,
  • socks,
  • birthing gown,
  • bathrobe,
  • shower slippers,
  • disposable panties.

Hygiene:

  • breast pads,

Essentials:

  • cup,
  • cutlery,
  • a bottle of mineral water,
  • phone charger,
  • food that you can store outside the fridge.

Take your favorite toiletries with you so you can feel comfortable. You may also need a small pillow. Also, don’t forget a small amount of money and your phone.

Minimize your stress level

Expecting the birth of a baby is an exciting moment that brings out extreme emotions. Often joy is intertwined with stress and panic. For this reason it is worthwhile to plan and complete the layette for the newborn and the mother in advance. Good organization will save time and money. What is more, it will effectively calm your anxious nerves. Do not leave anything for the last moment, because you may not have enough time. As a result, you will be even more irritated. Negative emotions can make giving birth more difficult. It is better to avoid this!
