You Just Found Out Your Pregnant, Now What?

So youíre having a baby, congratulations! But youíre probably thinking, Now What? That is a common reaction especially to something that is so unknown. Oh yeah, people have told you what itís like to have a baby, but until you experience it yourself, you donít know anything for sure.

Being pregnant and expecting a baby is a fun time and nothing is as exciting as picking out the baby furniture and clothing. You know that the items you choose will be etched in you and your babyís mind forever and more importantly shape your babyís childhood.

So how do you choose what baby products are right for the little one? Thatís a question that is different for each parent based on taste and preference but the one thing you should make sure about is the safety of the product. There are many places to find out about how safe a product may be. One place that I recommend is the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission ( This a government sponsored website that lists product recalls or safety issues on all types of products, including baby. There are countless other companies, publications and websites that review products, like Consumer Reports but I personally think that the best site is the CPSC.

You maybe still thinking about how to even start finding baby products. One way is the Internet. The Internet makes it possible to review baby products in the comfort of your own home without a salesman or a crowded store to dissuade you. Check out all the different manufacturers websites and get an idea of each companyís style. Then when you have a sense of what you like, go to the store nearest you and check it out. There are many reasons to see products first hand, for an example, each stroller has a different ďone-handĒ closing mechanism to make it easy for you to hold the baby in one hand and close the stroller with the other. You wonít get the idea of how something works on the net unless you see it for yourself.

When it comes time to pick out the furniture for the babyís room, keep safety in mind but also think of this, it needs to be practical. Some of the furniture out there was made to look good but it doesnít mean that it will be easy to use with a crying baby in hand. Also you might look for cribs and changing tables that can be used as your child gets older. A lot of the cribs today can be converted into toddler beds. This way when your child gets too big for the crib you can easily convert it without having to go buy another bed. Itís a great way to save money and time.

All in all, the one thing to look for when it comes to baby products is safety. Then comes practicality and finally the look. That is not to say that you have to sacrifice the way your babyís room might look, you just have to find baby products that have all three. Just continue to do your research and most of all have fun. Youíll never experience the same feeling again like you do with your first baby.
