The baby's arrival will change your life in ways you never imagined. But you can make it a pleasant and manageable situation if you are prepared for it. Even though every aspect of your life will be changed, and though at times things are going to be unpredictable and out of control, there are a few things you can plan and keep ready to avoid anxiety later on. One of those things is your home.
You will spend substantially more time in your house than anywhere else in the initial few months after your newborn baby’s arrival. Thus planning for and arranging your house to make it baby friendly can be one of the biggest favours you could do for yourself and your baby’s safety. Here are some essential things that you can plan to make your transition into parenthood a little easier.
Things to decide before the baby is born
Here are a few things to help prepare your home for the new baby's arrival.
1. Plan your sleeping arrangements.
Do your research and prepare for the baby's arrival checklist. Decide if you want to co-sleep or if the baby will sleep in a crib. If you plan to co-sleep, make sure your bed is big enough for three (or more if you expect multiples). Buy some waterproof bed protectors and many additional bed sheets.
If your baby sleeps in a crib, then buy a suitable crib as per your needs, mattress, and mattress protectors. In both cases, stock up on some super soft Swaddles and sleep-appropriate nighttime clothing for your baby in advance.
2. Reimagine and rearrange your kitchen
You will need to eat healthily while feeding and caring for the baby. But you will hardly have time to cook. So, plan and prepare for a one-pot or easy and quick meal. See if your kitchen has what’s needed for this. Get rid of or store the fancy equipment and delicate cutlery carefully you rarely use. Instead, keep all the easy-to-maintain utensils handy. Make sure you have sufficient plates and spoons for days when you don't get time to wash those dishes.
3. Check the house for baby proofing requirement
You will need more time to baby-proof the house after the baby comes. You will also not be warned when the baby starts taking their first step. So, get the basic baby-proofing done in advance and prepare the house for the baby. Secure those stairs with baby gates, close those easily accessible plug holes, tube those edges on the table, and move the coffee table if required.

4. Plan your laundry space
Laundry will be a big part of your day, no matter what diapering method you choose. Cloth diapers will need their own space, and the diaper-free time will add even more clothes for you to wash. So, get the things you need ready, like a good washing machine, suitable detergents, hampers/ multipurpose organisers to store dirty clothes, used diapers, clips, hangers, and drying racks to dry the washed laundry.
5. Set up baby room/space with nursery supplies
First few months, your life will be a whirlwind of feeding sessions and diaper changes. Look out for a space in your house that you think will be the best spot to create a diaper-changing station. Choose a spot that is easily accessible. Stock up on all diaper-changing accessories and keep them ready.
These might look like small things, but having these things in place will save a lot of time once the baby arrives. Get prepping for the exciting days ahead.
