Living with a newborn can be tricky. Everyone has their own sleeping arrangements but for our 4 kids, they have slept in our room in the same bassinet for the first couple months of their lives. Since my room isn’t equipped like the nursery is, I have some essentials for what should be included in your baby’s overnight stash. I thought I would share them with you today and maybe my list will help you with your little one. Check out my essentials and enter to win a Walmart gift card at the end of the post!
First up, our bassinet has a little basket underneath it but to keep things organized, I keep the diapers and WaterWipes in a basket. This keeps those tiny diapers from getting lost and doubles as storage when you need to refill your supply, just grab the basket and head to the nursery when you’re running low! I also keep extra sleep sacks and blankets because you never know when a blowout, spit up, or other mess is going to occur so keeping extras on hand will mean less wandering through the house on your part. I keep the blankets rolled so that when reaching into the basket, I don’t confuse the two.
My other essential is a noise machine. I like the ones that are hidden in stuffed animals because once my kids have outgrown the noise machine, you can remove the box and transition to just a cute stuffed animal. It really helps with the switch from depending on the noise machine to learning to self-soothe without it.
I have spoken about WaterWipes in the past and I am still super happy with them. Since they are free of harsh chemicals, being 99.9% pure Irish water and 0.1% grapefruit seed extract, they are effective and gentle on a newborn’s little bum. There are few things on this Earth that smell as good as a newborn and using a wipe that is as pure as WaterWipes, you’ll be able to prolong that Newborn Smell for as long as you can. 😉 Check out their website and see where you can buy some for your little one. You can also find them at Walmart.com, they shipped mine site-to-store for free!
To recap, extra sleep sacks, blankets, a noise machine, diapers, and WaterWipes are what helps me take care of my newborn in the middle of the night, what are some of your newborn essentials for nighttime?
