Baby Checklist

Hey-ho! I'm 30 weeks pregnant and it's time for me to take a look on baby checklist as to finalize on things to buy and things to "hands-me-down". Most of Adam's clothes are guaranteed to be in a perfect condition and for that, we only need to buy few more things to complete the list.

Come to think of it, it's good you know to spend a little bit extra on quality stuff because it will still be in good condition even after heavy usage. As for us, stroller, car seat, sterilizer, breast pump, rocking chair and bedding set are among the best purchase that we made for Adam. So comes our second addition, we don't have to worry on having to buy those expensive items all over again.

Maybe in two weeks time, I may need to start washing Adik's clothes so that I will have ample time to do the ironing-folding-arranging works later. Because if I wait till August, it will be a fasting month and I bet that I will be all sore and tired to even fold a cloth. +P

So, here is the baby checklist that I used for my reference. To first time mommies out there, this could be your guidance too but please bear in mind that you don't need to buy the entire things stated in the list. Agak-agak logik saja lah. =P


BABY CHECKLIST

Feeding:
  • Steriliser (mine is Avent and memang berbaloi-baloi!)
  • Feeding Bottles & Teats (also from Avent but am not that particular on BPA bagai. Ramai lagi orang pakai botol cap Warta, selamat je pun anak depa)
  • Teat & Bottle Brush (brand Tupperware punya best)
  • Pacifier & Pacifier Holder (Seluruh kaum kerabat mengharamkannya. It's a big NO to us)
  • Drying Rack / Organiser (Beli tapi tak guna sbb tak bertutup)
  • Bottle Cleanser / Detergent (Pigeon, Tolly Joy, tengoklah mana yang sale. hihihihi)
  • Bottle Tongs

Breast-feeding:

  • Breastmilk Storage Containers / Bags
  • Breastmilk Storage Organiser
  • Electric Bottle & Food Warmer (rendam air panas sudahhh)

  • Nursing Pillows / Supports (I guna bantal tido tu ajo)
  • Nipple Cream (I guna Earth Mama Angle but many said, Purelan bagus. But above all, the breastmilk itself yang terbaik)
  • Cooler Bag & Cooling Aids (Tskk, dah jual pulak, have to buy a new one nampaknya)

  • Disposable Diapers (Mami Poko and Huggies adalah brand pilihan saya)

  • Diaper Rash Cream
  • Safety Pins / Nappy Fasteners

Travelling Necessities:
  • Stroller / Pram (sungguh berpuas hati with Peg Perego. You know how airport handles the stroller? Pakai baling, hancur lebur masa dekat Frankfurt. Tapi lepas assemble balik, it works just as great as new! Tahan beban berkilo-kilo. Trust me)
  • Car Seat (Graco Junior Me, also berpuas hati sangat. It looks like new even after a year. Berbaloi)
  • Baby Carrier (Baby Bjorn, steady structure. Unfortunately, Adam outgrown it fast. Tak apa, Adik boleh guna nanti)
