Sunday Funday – 3 Easy Ways to Get Ready for Baby

on March 25, 2012

Are you expecting? (If you are please share the good news in the comment section 🙂 )

If you are, and you have some free time this Sunday, here are some things you can do to get ready for baby.

1. Design Custom Bedding for the Nursery

I love customizing things. So I got excited when I saw a post on Cool Mom Picks about Nursery Designer by Carousel Designs. It allows you to design your own baby bedding and preview it in front of the wall color of your nursery.

Warning: This may be addicting and you may spend your whole Sunday designing bedding if you’re not careful 😛

2. Set Up a Baby Registry

Have you set up a baby registry yet? If not, here’s a forum that can help you decide on the best place to go. It shows what othermoms are saying about the best places to get a registry.

If you already know where you want to go, jump in the car, bring your bestie, or your husband, or both, and start making that list! It’s fun to shop, especially when you don’t have to be the one to pay!

3. Get your Baby Scrapbook / Photo Album Ready

Scrapbooking 101 recommends that you don’t wait until after the baby arrives to start the scrapbook.

One mom was quoted as saying,

“The first double-page spread of my daughter’s baby book records the thoughts my husband and I had in anticipation of her arrival…how excited and nervous we were to become parents for the first time.”

You can even start tracking your changing shape, the site says, wearing the same outfit in each photo like a time lapse video.

Have you tried any of these tips? Or do you plan to? Please share in the comment section!

  1. I have had three little bundles of joy and our family is now complete but, if I may offer a suggestion. When registering for baby items make certain you register for the must have items. Items such as a car seat, stroller, breast pump, nipple cream, breast pads, butt paste, a few bottles and nipples (my youngest never took a bottle, no matter what type of bottle or nipple), safety gates are a MUST, we have outlet covers but that is the extent of our baby proofing (they will try to sell you a lot of stuff) diapers and liners (cloth), burp clothes, pack-n-play (this was our best investment!!) and bath items (we never used our baby bath, my kiddos were bathed in our kitchen sink, much better for mommies back) baby bouncing/vibrating chair, and swing. This way you are guaranteed to get the must have items and not a bunch of gadgets that you actually don’t need.
