Cleaning the house
Start getting ready well ahead of time. Get the house cleaned out thoroughly. Get help from friends and family members. Or go for try hired help to get your home ready for the new arrival. It’s too much for one person to handle. And get it done well in advance so you’re not worrying about your home while at the hospital.
Getting the nursery ready
It’s so exciting to do up the nursery for the baby that you never know when to stop buying things. You end up buying far more than you need. You will need a baby crib and bedding, curtains, changing table, a chest of drawers and other decorative items. Monkey curtains and other animal patterns add a cheerful and playful air to the nursery. Las Palmas Cornice Valance features a cute monkey and palm design. It has jute brush fringe on the bottom edge. Add to the animal theme with a Little Boutique monkey finial set to the curtain rod.
Stock up on baby’s clothes, cloth diapers if needed, a toddler tub to bathe the baby, car seat and other things. Wash all babies’ clothes in a gentle detergent and keep them neatly folded and ready for the baby. Organize the drawers and shelves so you know where exactly everything has to be kept. Toddler tubs like the Summer Infant Newborn-to-Toddler bath center and shower will make life convenient for you and the baby. It has features for every stage like a newborn sling in sink, toddler tub with shower for growing babies and large toddlers and a removable shower unit.
