Baby coming up: 10 things that should be ready at home

Having a baby always comes with a lot of questions – for example, which items should be prepared ahead of time before the newborn’s arrival? Kodus.ee  (https://kodus.ee/artikkel/beebi-tulekul-10-asja-mis-tuleks-kodus-valmis-panna)asked for advice from a baby counsellor Kadi Leppik.
‘For a new mom it is extremely important to have a supportive and a helpful partner, who helps her adjust to the new situation and would ensure that the new mom is able to have one of the most important things – time to rest,’ she starts. ‘Although there are a couple of things that you should consider investing in to ensure you are prepared. For example a good electrical breast pump, breast feeding pillows and a well-fitted specialty bra for breastfeeding. To observe baby’s breathing, I would also recommend to have a baby breathing monitor. As a bonus tip which may seem a little funny, is that I would advise to have some cabbage kept in the fridge so that after breastfeeding you can easily cool down sensitive breasts with a cold cabbage leaf,’ she lists.
‘You will definitely need to invest in a good pram where you can regulate the height, and I would also advise to get one that has a cup holder. Additionally you should have comfortable clothing for different weather conditions (a rain coat, a good parka, warm trousers, wellies/rain boots, gore-tex winter boots) because the baby will need to experience different weather conditions.’ For the bedroom, Kadi recommends darkening shades to ensure that light will not interrupt the baby’s sleep and a wider armchair or a swing chair with wide armrests that would be comfortable for breast feeding. ‘You should also consider getting the baby their own bed and a very simple baby cot will be enough.’

Beebi tulekul: 10 asja, mis tuleks kodus valmis panna

Uue ilmakodaniku sünd toob kaasa suure hulga küsimusi – näiteks et millised asjad peaksid kodus kindlasti olemas olema?

Kodus.ee  https://kodus.ee/artikkel/beebi-tulekul-10-asja-mis-tuleks-kodus-valmis-panna küsis nõu beebinõustajalt Kadi Leppikult.

“Värske emme jaoks kõige olulisem on toetav ja abivalmis kaaslane, kes aitaks emal uues rollis kohaneda ning võimaldaks väga olulist – ka aega iseendale, et puhata,” alustab Kadi. “Kuid on ka mõned asjad, mis värske ilmakodaniku tulekul olemas võiks olla. Nii näiteks peaks olema korralik elektriline rinnapump, rinnapadjad ja hästi istuv spetsiaalne rinnaga toitmise rinnahoidja. Mõnele võib see tunduda kentsakas, aga imetamisest õhetavaid rindu aitab hästi jahutada külmkapist võetud kapsaleht, nii et üks kapsapea võiks kapis ka olla. Lapse hingamist aitab aga valvata hingamismonitor,” loetleb ta.

“Muretseda tuleks korralik käru, reguleeritava kõrgusega ja mina soovitaksin kindlasti joogitopsi hoidjaga. Samuti peaks olema mugavad ja heast materjalist ilmastikukindlad riided (vihmamantel, jope, püksid, kummikud, core-tex talvesaapad), sest beebi vajab jalutuskäiku õues iga ilmaga.” Magamistuppa soovitab Kadi muretseda pimendavad rulood, et miski väiksekese und ei häiriks, samuti võiks mööbli hulgas olla korralike käetugedega, veidi laiem mugav tool või kiiktool, kus vastne ema maimukest toita saab. “Beebile võiks muretseda ka oma voodi, võib olla ka täiesti tavaline, lihtne häll.”
