Child Care Tips: How to Prepare for Your Infant's Arrival in The Woodlands

Posted on 01-16-2015


When it is time to start planning for your infant’s arrival, follow this quick guide to make sure nothing is left out:

  • Choose a physician: The health of you and your infant is a priority, so be sure to choose a doctor you can trust.
  • Attend prenatal classes: Your physician can recommend a prenatal class that will provide insight, information, and advice about the birth process and infant care.
  • Buy and fit a car seat: Choose a car seat that meets state and federal safety standards. Car seats have specific installation requirements, so practice installation and removal before the big day arrives.
  • Decorate the nursery: Paint and glue fumes are not healthy for your infant, therefore you should make sure your nursery is ready a few weeks before your due date. Be sure to plan for storage, a changing table, a bassinet, a nursing chair, toys, and supplies.
  • Pack your bag: At least two weeks before your due date, pack your bag for the hospital and include pajamas and a robe, hospital forms, nursing bras, infant clothing, toiletries, blankets, magazines and a change of clothing.
  • Practice: Before your due date, run through the process so your hospital arrival will be calm and stress free. Visit the hospital, locate the appropriate ward, and familiarize yourself with the staff. Many hospitals provide a tour for new parents prior to delivery.
  • Choose a child care facility: Life with a newborn is very busy, so plan your choice of child care well in advance. Ensure that your child has a guaranteed spot at a facility that shares your priorities and offers your child the best start in life.
