Parenting an infant comes with lots of unexpected moments – that’s why it’s best to take a page from the Boy Scouts and always be prepared. Your bundle of joy doesn’t have the same immune response you’ve developed over years of being exposed to germs and illnesses. Luckily, there are quite a few infant health essentials you can stock up on in case baby catches something or just needs a little extra grooming. Our infant health checklist makes it easy for you to get all the newborn essentials and be ready for whatever comes your way. These range from gear for everyday needs to medicine and healthcare tools for those (hopefully rare) sick days.
