Clothing

Babies need size 50/56 clothes for the first few weeks. It is important that the clothing is made of skin-friendly materials and does not have any annoying seams or applications.

sleeping place

The baby needs a safe and comfortable place to sleep. One possibility is an extra bed, which is attached directly to the parents' bed. A baby nest made of high-quality material would also be a sensible investment, especially because it can also be taken with you. A cot is an essential piece of furniture for your newborn.

milk bottles and breastfeeding accessories

car seat

A car seat is essential for safely transporting the baby. When buying, you should make sure that the seat corresponds to the size of the baby.

stroller

A good stroller is important for walking and transporting the baby. It is important that the stroller is stable and safe.


What to look out for when buying

Security

With all baby products, safety is the most important criterion. When buying a child car seat, stroller and sleeping place, you should therefore pay attention to tested products.

skin friendliness

Baby skin is very sensitive, so when choosing clothing and care products, you should make sure that they are skin-friendly.

practicability

In addition to safety and skin-friendliness, you should also pay attention to the practicality of the products. For example, diapers should be easy and quick to change.

Price-performance ratio

Of course, the price also plays a role. There are often big price differences between similar products. Here you should make sure that the price-performance ratio is right.

Conclusion

The primary needs of the newborn baby are diapers, clothes, a safe place to sleep, baby care products, milk bottles and breastfeeding accessories, car seat and stroller. When buying, you should pay attention to safety, skin-friendliness, practicality and the price-performance ratio.
It is important to start thinking about the things you need for the baby at an early stage so that you don't get stressed just before the birth. It is also advisable not to buy too many unnecessary things, as the baby mainly needs love, attention and closeness in the first few weeks and months.
