Necessary products for a small child – layetteboja - 29 July 2020
Many young parents share the same problem, namely how to complete a layette for a child. In the sheer volume of advice from family and friends, guides and advertisements, parents often buy too many things or forget about certain products that are necessary for a young child. How to deal with this? There is no good recipe for it, but despite the emotional merry-go-round that haunts us, when trying to complete a layette, we should try to create an action plan and stick to it as best as possible. Here are some tips that can help you create a list of important products for your young child.
Furniture for a small child
The basic purchase is a suitable crib. The dimensions of beds for small children range from 120 x 60 cm. Their equipment is similar and is mainly based on whether they have and if so, how many additional drawers for accessories and bedding. An important element that we should pay attention to is whether the cot is adjustable in height (the mattress can be lowered) and removable middle rungs (for a child who will be able to get out of bed by himself). This type of cot is universal and will last much longer than models that do not have such possibilities.
The second major purchase is a mattress and bedding. It is worth keeping the mattress firm and flat. It is much better and healthier for the baby. Among the best materials, we can distinguish mattresses made of foam, seagrass, coconut or buckwheat and coconut. On the other hand, bedding should be made of breathable, anti-allergic materials. Beware of bedding filled with feathers.
Another basic baby product that we should remember is the changing table. We can choose from two basic models: the first is a folding changing table, placed on the cot, and the second is a chest of drawers with a built-in changing table. Both models fulfill their function, and the choice depends mainly on how much space is in the room and whether we want to have all the clothes for the baby at hand. Changing mats can only be covered with oilcloth or the oilcloth may also have a fabric cover (detachable for washing).
Interestingly, parents often forget to buy a bathtub. And it is needed from the very beginning, in the first days. In the case of a bathtub, the choice is very large and depends on what the parents find the most convenient solution. Some bathtubs for small children have plugs and you can easily let the water out, others have special handles for mounting on the bathtub, and still others are a built-in part of the chest of drawers with a changing table.
Accessories for a small child
Among the other products that a child cannot do without, the cone should be mentioned. It should be made of the nicest, good quality material. It is good if it is labeled as hypoallergenic material. Wrapping the baby in a swaddle or blanket will keep him warm and safe. In the case of a swaddle blanket and blanket, it is worth investing in the best material possible, as these are accessories that need to be washed frequently. In addition to these products, it is worth buying towels for a child, preferably terry cloths and a decent washcloth made of a fabric that can be washed at a higher temperature. The sheets should be made of oilcloth or rubberized and preferably with a sewn-in elastic. This will be the most comfortable solution to protect the mattress from getting wet.
An infrequently used but useful product for a small child is the baby monitor. The transmitter is installed in the child’s room, next to the cot, and the receiver can be taken anywhere in the house. Thanks to this, while cooking or cleaning, the parent can hear when the child woke up or started crying.
Clothes for a small child
It often happens that new parents spend a lot of money on their first baby clothes and buy far too much of them. A child will grow out of clothes very quickly, so it is worth choosing only a few basic sets at the beginning that will make the child comfortable and will be easy to put on. It is worth making clothes made of natural, breathable materials, such as cotton. It is good to have pastel colors, because less dyes are used to obtain such colors, which is safer for the child.
In order not to overdo it with the amount of clothes, it is worth making a list of basic products and sticking to it. At the beginning, you should buy a jacket, long- or short-sleeved blouses, no more than four pieces. Then a few pairs of long or short-sleeved bodies (bodies are very comfortable to put on). A few pieces of rompers and rompers (rompers are thicker, perfect for winter) and a thin cotton cap as protection against the cold and sun. A sweater for colder days and a warm jumpsuit. Next, be aware of underwear such as socks and tights. Some also choose to buy reusable diapers made of natural materials, which are greener and cheaper than disposable diapers purchased in packets.
