Strollers come in various shapes and sizes. Make sure you go into BuyBuy Baby to play with them and make sure you can open them WITH ONE HAND. While you’re in BuyBuy Baby grab a NoMo Nausea Band just in case your delivery hospital doesn’t give them to you because you don’t want to be the 80% that throws up during your birthing day. Get a stroller that fits your lifestyle. If you’re a runner by a jogging stroller, if you have other children and theme park passes get a light foldable, or if you know you’re having more you may want to invest in a stroller you can add on or a double stroller (some even come with boogie boards for a 3rd kid). Or even better click here to purchase one for your special BIRTH-day.
Suggestion: Baby carriers are amazing. I prefer the ones with snaps that fit like a front and backpack. I tried a tribal African blanket looking one that you had to wrap 16 times, and I almost dropped the baby. Go with easy, it pays off when you’re tired.
Mom advice: Don’t waste your time buying a big bassinet stroller unless you’re a Kentucky derby mom and what to show off your new rims. They are super impractical and not worth the money. My favorite newborn baby stroller was a universal car seat carrier. It had a huge undercarriage and could fit any car seat.

Besides the cute outfit your baby will take photos in the hospital in, you really only need onesies and pull up or snap off PJs. Make sure when you’re choosing clothes to always choose cotton. You probably won’t be going to many places because remember babies’ immunity comes from mom breastfeeding every 2 hours so they are getting her antibodies.
