Today I would like to run down the must have list for the first 12 weeks with your new baby.
At this age baby will not need many toys, but instead want to be held and just generally close to you. Invest in a baby wrap to have your hands free yet have baby close.
Some little ones want to have a recreation of the cramped space in the womb, a swaddle wrap or blanket is perfect to achieve this.
After about 8 or so weeks old my little one started looking around. Another item I found my little one enjoyed was a swing rocker and a play mat. Even if he just lay there and looked. These can still be used for many months though.
I also advise reading my ebook for many more tips on how to help your baby should colic like symptoms appear. The Colic Solution by a Mom, for a Mom is 70% off for the duration of this event. Click here to apply the code:ULTIMATEBABY. (Only $1!)
