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 Kyle warm at night. Kyle looks so adorable snuggled up inside!
2. My baby seems to be right on track developmentally: Kyle cries to tell me how Kyle feels, and Kyle likes to look at black-and-white patterns with strong contrast. Kyle also grabs my finger when I touch Kyle’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 Kyle 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 Kyle a sponge bath. I won’t be using the baby bath or putting Kyle all the way in the water till after his cord falls off.
