Baby Checklist. Week #1
1. My baby’s crib might look sparse right now — no blankets or pillows! I use a sleep sack to keep him warm at night.
2. It may just be a reflex, but it’s still the sweetest thing when my baby grabs my finger if I touch his palm. He also has strong opinions — he cries to tell me how he feels! Right now he can only see black and white patterns, not colors, so he likes to look at patterns with strong contrast.
3. I’m in the “fourth trimester,” and I still look pretty pregnant! I’m wearing comfortable clothes, like the maternity pants I wore in the first trimester.

4. I’ve got my baby’s safety kit ready with a digital thermometer, a night light and a nasal aspirator.
5. 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 him a sponge bath. I won’t be using the baby bath or putting him all the way in the water till after his cord falls off.

Baby Checklist. Newborn
1. My baby got her first vaccination — a dose of Hepatitis B that’s given at birth. I also scheduled my baby’s first doctor appointment.
2. Who knew poop would ever be so interesting? I’m counting my baby’s diapers to make sure she has at least 6 wet ones and 3 dirty ones every 24 hours.
3. I’m hungrier now than I was when I was pregnant! I need 300-500 extra calories if I’m breastfeeding, so I’m eating at least 2,000 calories every day.

4. We’re ready to bring baby home! I washed all the baby clothes and bedding in a hypoallergenic detergent that’s designed not to irritate baby’s sensitive skin.
5. This hospital underwear is pretty practical. I’ve bought some disposable underwear of my own and some extra-long pads to protect me during postpartum bleeding.
6. I’ve got 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 got the right equipment. My newborn needs small, 4 oz bottles and stage 1 nipples. I’ve also got a bottle brush to keep my bottles clean.
