A Nursery And Baby Checklist Collection For New Moms

You are here: Home ~Baby Checklists

Including a Baby Checklist for Baby Furniture and Gear, Nursery Storage, Baby's Layette, Mom's Pregnancy, Your Labor Bag and Diaper Bag. Everything You Need for You and Baby...

This baby and nursery checklist collection has been put together to help you, the new mom, to navigate the sea of alluring baby products floating around out there.

Some are essential to ensure smooth sailing for you and your new baby, but there are many that you can do without, and still others that you should steer well clear of.

I know how it feels to be a new mom. Only the best will do for your special baby, and you don't want to deprive him or her by not buying all the great baby products on offer. They all seem so useful.


I can promise you, after four babies, I know for sure that there are some 'brilliant' baby items that you will barely use, despite what the marketing companies tell you.

On the other hand, you don't want to bring baby home, only to realize that you don't have everything you should. Trips to the 24 hour drugstore are common. New dads search for forgotten pacifiers, bottles and diapers, while mom sits at home in a panic.

Bottom line - be prepared, but smart. Make sure you have all the stuff you need, while steering clear of the fluff you don't.

Choose a baby checklist from the following to help you...

  • Protect Your Baby First

    How To Protect Your Baby in The Nursery Your baby's safety should always be your top priority, but it's easy to overlook potential hazards or mistakenly purchase unsafe baby gear.

    Find out everything you need to know about keeping your baby safe in the nursery by following this easy to use, comprehensive nursery safety checklist - if you only ever use one baby checklist it should be this one...

    Find out which baby goodies you should be buying and which ones are to be avoided. Which ones will help to keep your baby safe and which ones are downright dangerous!

    Your baby will spend around 70% or more of her time in the baby nursery during her first year. And, because the nursery is the only room in the house where your baby will be left unattended, it requires special attention when it comes to baby proofing.

    This is one place where almost perfect just doesn't cut it. Your baby's nursery has to be absolutely 150% safe!

    I can't even begin to tell you how much less stressful your life is as a new mom when you know your little one is safe.

    How To Protect Your Baby In The Nursery will help you to achieve safety in your baby nursery quickly and easily.

  • Your Baby Layette List

    baby stuff This is a very comprehensive Layette List, divided into the following categories for your convenience:
    • Sleep Time
    • Bath Time
    • Changing Time
    • Feeding Time
    • Getting Dressed
    • Baby's Health
    • Play Time
    • Out and About

    Non-essential items have been marked with an asterisk*.

    Only items required within the first three months or so have been included on this baby checklist. (Therefore, items such as high chairs are excluded.)

    One of the decisions you will need to make before finalizing your layette list, is whether or not you intend to breastfeed your baby.

    Many new mothers seek information and reassurance about breastfeeding and the more you know before your baby arrives, the more confident you will be. loveyourbaby.com reaches out to mothers with the latest information about everything to do with breastfeeding.

  • Your Nursery Storage Checklist

    The purpose of the Baby Nursery Storage Checklist is to help you to allocate enough storage space for baby's things. Newborns do tend to need lots of little goodies!

    This list is divided as follows:
    • Bathroom
    • Your Closet
    • Nursery Closet (or other closet with space)
    • Baby Nursery
    • Kitchen/Laundry

    Go to our Nursery Storage Planning page, to find out how to accommodate all the baby stuff allocated to the baby nursery.

    I know my baby budget was bursting at the seams by the time I finished shopping for my first born and I'll bet you're feeling the pinch too. So I'll tell you which baby gear options worked the best and why, so that you can spend your hard-earned cash on the baby stuff you'll really use.

  • Non-Toxic Baby Checklist

    • Baby Formula and Food
    • Bottles, Teethers and Pacifiers
    • Skin Care Products
    • Diapers and Creams
    • Clothing
    • Bedding
    • Toys
