New Arrival Checklist, We're Getting Ready!!

Preparation for baby's arrival in terms of baby stuffs depend entirely up to you really, and also the country you're in contributes a lot to it as well. These items I am about to enumerate were never used to exist in my mind and or never practiced in the Philippines especially in the rural areas, practical methods in any way is always been the case.

Typical example is having baby's own nursery, complete with accessories and decorations. We never had our own room when we were little, we stayed with our parents' room, and without any fuss of buying musical mobiles, wall hangings, glow in the dark lights, a proper baby bath, baby monitor, etc... You know what I mean? Even toys when we were toddlers, we had almost to nothing!

Anyway, I'm in a different country with completely different principles and practices, with only limited family members to give the new parents' a hand to look after the babies. This is what it is, entertaining them as much as you can to be able to accomplish something, I should say.

Here's the list of items we are both busy of completing before our baby arrives (as of today 10 weeks before her arrival), at least for for the 1st three months:
