Stock the diaper changing table.

It’s a good idea to have several different sizes and brands of diapers on hand since you won’t be sure of your baby’s size until she arrives. Plus, you may find that certain brands fit better or are more absorbent. Don’t forget other necessities like baby wipes, cotton balls, and washcloths.

Wash baby’s clothes.

Use a gentle detergent that is free of perfumes and dyes to wash your newborn’s clothes before she wears them. This helps to remove any irritating chemicals used during manufacturing. You can later switch to regular detergent and include your baby’s clothes in the family wash as long as she doesn’t have sensitive skin.
