Firstly, let's say CONGRATULATIONS to you - soon to be mum!!!
I remember when I first started to plan for my baby - I was so excited and yet at the same time, totally overwhelmed by all the different products out there and how much I had to get!
A great time to start preparing for the large items is from 12 weeks.
You will want to have your Baby Shower by 32 weeks (see our article: When Should I have my Baby Shower?) and start to tick off the smaller items and purchase any last minute baby products.
Online shopping becomes your friend in the third trimester because it means you don't have to go out and spend hours pondering.
We have made preparing for your baby a little easier by putting together this comprehensive Preparing for a Baby Guide!
However, if you want a simple, quick and easy checklist with all the essentials sign up to our newsletter below and receive our FREE Preparing for a Baby Checklist!
Give a copy of this checklist to your BabyMaid so they can start a Baby Registry for you. Your friends and family then can buy items that you still need for your Baby Shower.
Now Mumma, for the moment, you can sit back with a glass of your favourite non-alcoholic drink, a pen in the other hand and we can start planning for your baby.
In our comprehensive guide we will look at what you need for your baby and we can tick off what you already have!
