Tips for preparing for another child
Tips for preparing for
Depending upon when you had your first baby, there may be some catching up to do. And that’s what our tips are all about. Have a look!
Check with the Consumer Products Safety Commission (www.cpsc.gov) to see if any of your baby/toddler items have been recalled. Major recalls to take note of: most drop-side cribs, some strollers, and products with high levels of lead and cadmium.
Consider buying new bottles and breastfeeding accessories. There is the risk that your old ones may contain BPA and Phthalates, as well as an odor from its prior use for milk and formula.
Thinking of reusing your old car seat? Make sure it hasn’t expired by checking the date imprinted on it. Every car seat does carry such a date. Many hospitals will not let you leave without an approved infant car seat!
An infant carrier allows you to be hands-free while carrying baby, which could be very useful when managing multiple children.
Allow your friends to throw you a baby sprinkle (aka a light baby shower). You will need new burping cloths, diapers, clothes, blankets – and maybe a bigger, "cooler" diaper bag!
Be aware of the small items and toys that your older child may have. Once your new baby is mobile, these items can be a potential choking hazard.
