The first year, especially the first month is very difficult for parents as they have to get used to strict routine of baby feeding, baby bathing, not to mention baby sleep time alone. Thus, it is quite frequent that parents have no idea what they might need except for diapers, outfit, rattles and toys. This is when the timely prepared newborn checklist should help them greatly. So, spend some time together with a husband and future dad and try to make a checklist of all the things a baby will need, let\'s say for the first month. Then expand it for the first year. Be ready and eager to listen to experienced people like grandparents because they really can give you some useful pieces of advice. Having done your newborn checklist I recommend you to look at the ideas given below. It can happen that you\'ve forgotten to include some very important things.
The item listed after the budget on the party planning checklist is usually your venue choice. If you are planning to have the party away from home the venue choice will cost money and will come out of your budget and a time will have to be arranged for decorations and so forth. If your party is going to be at home, and you have to hire a professional to come and clean some unwanted stains out of your rug the parties budget will be affected, making it an important listing in your checklist. Of course, if your home needs nothing besides some freshening up you may leave it off your list for now.
