    Top 7 Things for Baby
    By Robin Elise Weiss

    When you are about ready to have a baby, everyone has advice for things you have to have. What do you really need? What is just a nicety or a luxury? Does your lifestyle have any influence on the things you must have? As a mother of six, here is my list of must haves for new babies.

    1. Onesies
    You can live for a long while with only onesies. These one-piece, snap crotch articles of clothes are amazing. They come in colors, prints and stripes. You can get long sleeve or short. You can also buy them just about anywhere. They fit nicely under other clothes for a warmer layering effect or you can wear them alone during warmer times. You can also add a pair of cute pants for another outfit selection. Can you tell I'm sold on these?

    2. Diapers!
    Okay, so you might believe that diapers are more important than the onesies, but I'm not sure about that. You do need diapers, whether cloth or disposables. Be sure to have at least a size of newborn and the next size up, some newborns just aren't newborn sized!Sling

    3. Sling
    Personally, I think that slings are awesome. I like them much better than other types of carriers. Slings are good for discreet breastfeeding and just carrying baby around. You can also use one sling to carry newborn twins or as they get older double sling using two slings. Some people like the padding, I have both varieties and it doesn't really matter to me. Get whatever appeals to you. My husband also enjoys wearing the sling.

    4. First Aid Kit
    It is important to have some basics on hand for when baby arrives. Some infant acetominaphin or ibuprofen, rectal thermometer (and lubricant!), first aid cards with tips for what to do in emergencies, numbers of the pediatrician and local poison control and anything else your pediatrician recommends. The American Academy of Pediatrics does not recommend Syrup of Iepacac.

    5. Place for Baby to Sleep
    This is actually a personal opinion place. Notice it doesn't say a crib. You may have a crib if that is the right place for your family, but other families may choose co-sleeping or a cradle or any of a number of other variations. Preplanning and designing that space always makes it more safe for baby. Be sure to follow all safety rules for your preferred method of sleep.

    6. Car Seat
    Most people will require a car seat when leaving the hospital. Some families have two bases, which attach to the car seat to easily move the seat from car to car, others have a whole sytem for each car. Do what works for you. Local AAA and others can help you install it safely.

    7. Stroller
    A stroller is a must for me, but not everyone. I have other children, so the stroller is helpful for corraling someone, even if it isn't the baby (who is usually in a sling). This just makes trips out a bit easier for me and allows me to walk around the park and get some much needed exercise.
