This is an introduction to a four part mini series of posts on how my family prepped for our first baby to come home. I want to share with all new moms what you can do to get ready for baby, because in my opinion, there really isn’t much to do.
To be honest, I really didn’t do much to prep for baby and I am so glad that I didn’t. I know that everyone asks, are you ready for baby? What have you done to get ready for him to come home?
My response to people was, “I have diapers and a few outfits and the stroller!” We really didn’t do much, I would say we did the bare minimum, and part of it was because it was personal choice but the other piece is that we are staying at my parents house while our house is being remodeled. We didn’t and still don’t have a nursery!
On that note- I would have set up my nursery if I had the option, but I would have just purchased a crib and some cute curtains to keep the light out. Think about it, design takes time, it is fun to plan out the nursery, so new moms, take your time to decorate and curate your ideas. Your baby won’t be sleeping in their crib anyways until about 4 or 5 months. They should be sleeping in your own room. Trust me, it will make middle of the night feedings a lot better.
