Baby Healthcare Products You'll Need
There's a lot of little things that can get overlooked when
purchasing supplies for your baby until they're needed. Make sure you pick up the following items to help keep
your baby healthy and happy.
You'll need a nail clipper set to keep
your infant's nails trimmed. Make sure it includes a small set of
scissors, nail clippers and emery boards designed specifically for
babies. You may also want to get a nasal aspirator, which helps clean
the mucus from your infant's nose, especially when they have a cold.
This will help them breathe easier.
You'll also need to keep on-hand a soft
baby comb and brush set, an infant medicine feeder with measuring cup to
give your child medicine when needed or for liquid vitamins, etc. (It
comes in very handy!) A couple of optional purchases you may want to
also consider would be baby sunglasses and an infant scale.
Humidifiers & Vaporizers
These are much needed items for the
winter months, especially if your baby gets a cold. You'll be very
thankful to have one on-hand when it's needed. There are two types
available: cool mist humidifiers or warm mist vaporizers. Both do
the same job basically...adding additional moisture to the air to help
your child breathe easier. Whichever you choose is a matter of
Pacifiers & Teethers
Pacifiers help to soothe your baby when
he or she is cranky or colicky. Mainly, babies like to suck and a
pacifier certainly helps. The baby pacifiers that are manufactured today
are shaped to ensure the natural development of palate, teeth, and gums
of the child. Teethers are a great help when your baby begins
teething. Shaped to look like toys, you can get ones that can also
be thrown into the freezer for nice cool relief when your baby
gums it when teething.
A must have baby product! If your child
becomes sick, you need to monitor his or her temperature carefully.
If your baby's temperature gets too high, they can go into
convulsions! There's a huge variety of baby thermometers on the
market today. Some are designed as digital ear thermometers, where
you just slide the tip into the ear and in less than a minute you
have the temperature reading. A new one just out is shaped like a
pacifier...making it easy to take your baby's temperature! You can
also choose an underarm thermometer and there's even a remote
fever monitor that allows you to monitor your child's temperature from
up to 90 feet away.
