Being a mother is magical, right? And with the birth of a new- born life, a new- born mother is also brought to life. We know that taking care of your babies are much more difficult than it actually seems. It is almost like taking care of that little plant you bought home for your garden. So, to help you with the “take care” process, here are 7 most important things that would be of real use when the baby is born and it’s a great idea to keep all these products handy before your baby arrives. You know? It is better to be ready beforehand for anything than being clumsy afterwards.

Nappies, Diaper Bag and Wet Wipes

Earlier, people used to get those cloth pockets into action to cover the baby. But with the realization and cautiousness about the baby care, we have grown into a generation of diaper babies and diapers are a boon to motherhood. Keeping the wetness and rashes away from the baby is a necessity for the delicate skin of the baby.

So just ensure that you have your pack handy along with some gentle wet wipes. You will need it as soon as you leave hospital. A diaper bag is a complete must have as you can sort all your stuff. And with some awesome brands like Johnson&Johnson, Mamy Poko Pants, Himalaya Diapers and Pampers, it becomes easy to give the best to your new-born.

Nursing Accessories

Nursing accessories is another important point which should be kept in mind to have a pleasing baby love experience. Usually, the newly born mom’s suffer severe back pains as a result of delivering the baby. And this calls for special care of the mother as well as of the child.

Ensure that you buy nursing gowns, nursing pads and feeding pillows if you have back problems. Some moms don’t have the luxury to go out shopping after birth due some or the other reason. That is when websites like Firstcry are helpful. Visit the website and have a look at the wide range of baby products and mother’s care products.

    Hi Jaishri!
    I am doing a project on mother’s decision making process for buying skincare products (such as moisturizer, soap etc.) for infants. I wanted to ask what are the triggers which affect a mother’s decision while buying? I guess mostly it would be suggestions given by friends or elders (mothers and mother in laws) and pediatricians. But what do you look for in the product while buying it?
    Also, are the products in the market good enough to give an overall protection to baby’s skin, or is there still some problems they are not able to solve?

    It would be great if I could understand answers to these questions.

      Most people go by word of mouth and some obvious brands which have been used from ages.
      Nowadays moms are more aware and they are looking for products that are recommended by dermatologists and are perfume and paraben free. My top brands are Sebamed and Cetaphil. I would be glad if we have products based on weather pattern like winter care, summer care etc. Also if it could cater to skin type, kids do have different skin types like dry, normal and oily. Hope this helps your research.
