Set Up the Nursery, and Organize Your Gear


You might be swimming in an over abundance of baby gear, or you might be wondering if you have all the baby care necessities. Newborns mainly need a few basic things, so try not to feel too overwhelmed by all the "stuff" or think your nursery should be perfectly settled. However, once your little bundle arrives, sleep and spare time will be in short supply, so it's a good idea to get as organized as you can ahead of time. Set up a bassinet or crib for your bundle of joy. Also, stock up on small diapers and wipes, and have some of your baby's outfits laundered and ready to be (adorably!) worn. (Hint: organize them by size so you can easily find what you need when you need it — you'll be surprised how fast that little one grows!)
