Week 16a

We’re off to Langkawi to celebrate our 6th anniversary and expose our little one to Malaysia, truly Asia 🙂

Can’t wait to reap the rewards of our first baby-related shopping last weekend – comfy tops and dresses, plus storage bins for the wardrobe I can’t fit in anymore which will help clear space for all the new baby stuff to come. Here’s my WIP first-time checklist, culled from various sources ( Mothercare, Parenting.com, etc.). Any recs on where to buy or borrow, do let me know!

  1. Infant car seat (best models recline when detached, allow the baby to rock or bounce)
  2. Wearable soft carrier (sling designs make nursing easier – kampung style!)
  3. Crib light
  4. Cot, mattress and bedding (IKEA?)
  5. Changing mat
  6. Extra pull out bed (for storage, convertable into a kids bed – IKEA)
  7. Baby sleeping bag or blanket
  8. Baby swing
  9. Diapers, diaper disposal method and diaper ointment (loads and loads of nappies!)
  10. Baby bathtub and tub seat
  11. Baby toiletries (hooded towels, baby shampoos, infant nail clippers, soft hairbrush) 
  12. First baby clothes
  13. First baby toys and toy bar
  14. Baby listening monitor
  15. Feeding equipment (bottles – Nuk?, steamer)
  16. Stroller (for later – McLaren)
  17. High chair (for later – IKEA)
