Creating your baby registry has to be so exciting, right? Not always. When you actually get down to the small details, especially when it comes to your first baby, many questions start to come up. Where should you register? What are the essentials you need for the beginning? Do you need things for yourself, too?
We’ve been there, and we can help. Here’s a little more about what you actually need for your baby registry:
An Infinite Amount of Diapers
You’ve probably heard this one before, but we’re reminding you just in case! Diapers are going to be your new bestie. You’ll have a lot of one-on-ones with them, so make sure you’re prepared. When it comes to purchasing the right diapers, make sure to register diapers in various sizes. Even though babies can definitely be different, most newborns do not fit into the smallest size for very long.
Ask for a good amount of sizes 1 and 2, for the first month, and see where your baby stands. On average, babies typically tend to remain at a size 4 for the longest time. If your house is big enough to store all those diapers, make sure you ask for a few packs of size 4, to be on the safe side.
Your second bestie will be a pack of baby wipes. You do not want to be stuck anywhere without baby wipes, especially if you have to change a diaper. With that said, we would suggest going all out and register for a 128-pack. Trust us, you’ll need it!
A big plus when it comes to baby wipes is that you can also use it yourself. Baby wipes are awesome for freshening up, quickly cleaning up a kitchen mess, wiping dirty surfaces, and even using it for breastfeeding spills.
Organic Baby Oil
We’ve talked about diapers and wipes for your baby’s immediate needs, but what about keeping their skin moisturized? Though it’s true that babies have incredibly smooth skin, they are more prone to skin dryness and irritation. They come in forms of conditions like eczema, dermatitis, and psoriasis.
In order to properly treat skin dryness, rashes, itchiness, and irritation, it’s crucial to use high-quality products that can make all the difference. Combined with powerful and effective blends of oils and vitamins, Elizabeth Parker Naturals’ Organic Baby Oil, was truly made to impress. Made with apricot, grapeseed, sunflower, calendula, castor, and lavender oils, along with rosemary extract and vitamin A and E, this baby oil is the perfect moisturizer.
It’s also important for mothers to ensure that skincare products are not combined with harmful chemicals like fragrance or petroleum. The good news is that these baby products, like the ones sold by Elizabeth Parker Naturals’, are uniquely designed for safety, effectiveness, and nourishment.
Cradle Cap Healing Balm
Though we don’t all prepare for our babies to have scales and flakes on their skin, it’s best to stay on the safe side and have the right treatment. Though the cause of cradle cap is not known, it seems that one contributing factor may be the overproduction of oil (sebum) in the oil glands that is then transferred on to the baby during pregnancy. Cradle cap is not contagious or caused by any poor hygiene, but it should always be treated.
Elizabeth Parker Naturals’ Cradle Cap Healing Balm is the one-of-a-kind formula, created specifically to rid the baby of scales and flakes. Made primarily with calendula oil, this balm is quickly absorbed into the skin and helps protect the baby from excess hair loss. It is not only excellent for its soothing properties, but can be used from head to toe, in all areas.
