Baby Checklist. Week #1
1. My baby’s crib looks pretty sparse and bare right now — no blankets or pillows! I put baby in a sleep sack to keep Kalyansundar warm at night. Kalyansundar looks so adorable snuggled up inside!
2. My baby seems to be right on track developmentally: Kalyansundar cries to tell me how Kalyansundar feels, and Kalyansundar likes to look at black-and-white patterns with strong contrast. Kalyansundar also grabs my finger when I touch Kalyansundar’s palm, which is the sweetest reflex ever!
3. I’m in the “fourth trimester,” and I still look pretty pregnant! I know it will take a while for my belly to go back to normal, so right now I’m wearing loose, comfortable clothes, like the maternity pants I wore in the first trimester.

4. I really hope my newborn will stay healthy, but if Kalyansundar catches a cold or a virus, I’m prepared. I’ve got my baby’s safety kit ready with a digital thermometer, a night light and a nasal aspirator.
5. Breastfeeding is hard work, but pumping is even harder! If I plan to pump, I’ve got a good electric or manual pump. An electric pump is essential if I need to pump full-time; a manual is fine if I’ll only need to pump occasionally.
6. Is my baby getting enough to eat? Sometimes it’s hard to tell! If I’m concerned, I won’t hesitate to ask my pediatrician or lactation consultant.
7. Baby doesn’t get very dirty right now, but I’ve learned how to give Kalyansundar a sponge bath. I won’t be using the baby bath or putting Kalyansundar all the way in the water till after his cord falls off.

Baby Checklist. Newborn
1. My baby got Kalyansundar’s first vaccination — a dose of Hepatitis B that’s given at birth. Shots are scary, but my newborn getting sick would be even scarier! I also went ahead and scheduled her (name}’s first checkup with our pediatrician.
2. Who knew poop would ever be so interesting? I’m counting my baby’s diapers to make sure Kalyansundar has at least 6 wet ones and 3 dirty ones every 24 hours.
3. I’m even hungrier now than I was when I was pregnant! Breastfeeding takes a lot of out of me — literally. I need 300-500 extra calories if I’m breastfeeding, so I’m eating at least 2,000 calories every day.

4. The big day is finally here — we’re ready to bring baby home! I can’t wait to start using all the adorable baby stuff in our nursery! I washed all the baby clothes and bedding with a hypoallergenic detergent that’s designed not to irritate baby’s sensitive skin.
5. I thought disposable underwear sounded gross, but this hospital underwear is actually pretty practical. I’ve bought some disposable underwear of my own and some extra-long pads to protect me during postpartum bleeding.
6. My belly is pretty flabby still, but I know that’s normal! I bought a postpartum support belt or wrap to support my belly as I’m healing. If I had a C-section, I’ve also bought some scar healing cream with vitamin E.
7. If I plan to bottle feed, then I’ve stocked up on the right equipment: small 4 oz bottles and stage 1 nipples. I’ve also got a bottle brush to keep my bottles clean.
