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.

Now it\'s time to head over to the local department store for some decorations. You follow the same unguided principles you went through at the grocery store. Then once again you missed a few things at the liquor store.
