During your pregnancy you should collect the things you will need to care for your baby. This includes, but is not limited to, a crib or bassinet; sheets; baby clothes including nightgowns, socks, booties, onesies and sleepers; blankets; diapers; wipes; diaper rash cream; infant car carrier; stroller; frontpack; backpack; play yard; bottles; nipples and formula if bottle feeding; diaper bag; thermometer; Boppie for propping your baby up and helping you hold baby while nursing; more than one nursing bra if nursing; burp cloths.
You've just delivered your baby. Now what???
BURPING AND SPITTING UP
Burp your baby in between feedings. If breastfeeding, burp between breasts and at the end of nursing. If bottle feeding, burp after each 1/2 ounce of formula. This aids digestion of the formula and prevents gas pains.
