Preparing to receive the arrival of a baby can be overwhelming, and much more as the expected date of delivery approaches. There are so many things to prepare at home, at work, in the family, in organization, in management, and above all on an emotional level!

This is our recommended Checklist ✅

1.- Baby clothes
This time all the clothes for the baby it has to be all soft, breathable, quick and easy change. Frogs, bodies and pajamas that are the essential items for daily use.

2.- Space at home for the baby
Something that gives us peace of mind to Moms is to have the furniture and space that the baby will occupy such as a crib, bassinet, changing table … and with enough bedding, sheets, protector, towels … all ready and organized with well in advance.

3.- Skin care products and hygiene supplies
We recommend new diaper brands using ecological biodegradable diapers to be environmental conscious! The big giant COSTCO carry the brand Bio Baby Eco Diapers in bulk!
Also, utensils to wash our baby bum when necessary (we highly recommend instead of natural sponge, where bacteria can always remain , organic biodegradable cotton gauze that you find in any natural products store) and also a lot of wipes.

4.- To get going with the baby

5.- postpartum and breastfeeding products
For postpartum and breastfeeding you also have to be prepared, you will need several things: organic cotton discs (reusable or not), lanolin for breasts, maternity pads, extra ration of panties (the first days even the disposable ones are recommended by the amount of flow), nursing bras, comfortable clothing, baggy and with front opening if possible, a breastfeeding pad!

6.- Connect with the baby
The most universal ways of communicating with the baby are thought, voice, sounds, movement and touch.

7.- Playing time! Stimulating our baby’s psychomotor system.
The sense of touch covers much more than the mere ability to feel with your hands if an object is hard or soft, rough or smooth.
This is only a tiny part.
It is enough to realize that the organ of perception of touch is toooda the surface of the body, ie the entire skin, to understand its magnitude.
The skin allows us tactile experiences absolutely all the time.

Weight and size of the baby at birth



Weights and height of the baby, boy and girl

The weight and size of babies say a lot about their physical development. From birth, the baby is weighed and measured. Especially in the first year of his life, his weight and his measures of growth must be controlled by the pediatrician.

The genetic inheritance and the time of pregnancy that the baby chooses to be born determine, in principle, their weight and height. Thus, the size of the parents influences the weight and height of the baby not only at the time of birth, but also in its later development. Regarding the moment of delivery, we must make a distinction between those born at term and those who are ahead of the 38th week of gestation. Other times, a maternal illness that has not allowed you to get enough food during pregnancy or gestational diabetes can also determine the baby’s weight and height at birth.

How much should the baby grow and gain weight?

The measurement of weight and height are routine controls that your pediatrician will carry out at each visit. It is important not to get obsessed with these measures because the peaks of weight gain and growth are not always the same and, during the first year, they change every quarter.



Baby Tips for a safe bath time

Did you know that in addition to ensuring proper hygiene, bathing your baby stimulates the psychomotor development of your baby?

The baby bath provides sensory experiences, encourages play, stimulates circulation, relaxes and above all is a very special moment to strengthen the bond of love and confidence that you and your little one have.

Bath time depends on the needs of each family, sometimes in very hot climates a second bath may be required to refresh the baby.
However, it is good to keep the same schedules every day so that you get used to a routine that facilitates their adaptation and safety. Here are some suggestions to make this a magical moment:

1.- It is appropriate to sponge bath it without introducing it completely into the water until the umbilical cord falls. By the way, it is very important that you dry the umbilical cord well to avoid infections.

2. The most advisable is that you use a plastic bathtub that offers you security and comfort, now there are enough mesh or easy to lay your baby.

3.- In addition you must have well-washed hands, short nails and do not wear jewelry to prevent it hurt your baby’s skin.

4.- Place the baby semi-seated in the baby’s bathtub by holding the head with your left hand if you are right-handed. With the other hand you can handle a natural sponge and the small shampoo that is suitable for your skin and that you can use in your body and little head. (Some moms prefer to wash their heads separately.)

5.- To clean the ears and nose properly do not use copitos, clean up to where the wipe or sponge allows you. For the nose you can use a few drops of physiological serum. To remove saliva or leftover milk use a gauze or wipe.

6. Hygiene of the genitals deserves special attention.

7.- In children, try to gently rear the foreskin without forcing it. (If the baby is done the circumcision follows the direction of your doctor). In girls carefully cleans the genital furrows always backwards, from the vulva to the anus so as not to carry residual germs from the feces.

8. Never leave your baby just for a second in the tub. Once the bath is finished wrap the baby in a towel that covers the whole body to avoid cooling, hold it to recover the heat and then see gently drying each part of your body and proceed to dress it quickly to prevent it from cooling.

9. While bathing your baby, talk to him, sing him, play with him, show him how much fun you play with foam or your floating toys that sink, use plastic books.

10.-Tell him also when you admire him and how happy you feel that he has come into your life.

Anaphylactic reactions often begin with a feeling of uneasiness, followed by tingling sensations and dizziness.
