For the first year make sure you have these things in your newborn checklist: Baby outfits, baby toys and baby bottles and nipples; For bath time you need _ baby bath or baby tub, or some baby safer to make it easier and to get a support while washing a baby; Baby crib, in fact it can be universal and be used up to 5 years old; Baby bedding, sheets and blankets. I would recommend also buying waterproof mattress protector. You will appreciate this thing at once. Baby slings and baby stroller to walk with a baby inside. Baby car seat _ to provide infant safety in the car. Baby shampoo without tears, baby powder, oil and lotion to take care of the gently baby skin. This list can really save you some bucks to spend on something else. If you decide to feed a baby with baby food then you surely should add this item to your week list of expenses and into newborn checklist.
The checklist should be in writing. If some representing themselves as a home watch company cannot produce a written checklist, save your time and money. These are people who will \'work from memory\' to accomplish what they do. How can they show accomplishment of each item? Just ask them! Without a written checklist you have no idea what was actually done. They may have run through the property and ensured there were no fires, and left. Without a written checklist, you have no idea. A good company will keep the checklist for reference in case they believe there may be a problem in the future.
