Baby equipment list | Pre-birth checklist

As your belly grows and your due date approaches, it becomes more and more real that a little baby is coming soon. The baby talk instinct makes many women question whether they've remembered to buy everything for the baby's arrival.

Here we've tried to make it easier by bringing together everything you'll need in the early days.

Need to have or nice to have?

These two clever terms describe the baby equipment market very well. It's full of expensive products that you may not need at all.

Many of the things are certainly good to have, but may not be necessary in your family. That's why it's a good idea to wait before buying everything. Wait until baby is born and then assess what you really need.

To make the jungle of baby equipment easier to navigate, we have chosen to divide the equipment into two lists.

  • Baby equipment list: Need to have. Everything you need
  • Baby equipment list: Nice to have. Everything you might need

As the belly grows, many women begin to "nest".

Baby equipment list: Remember everything before birth

Once baby arrives, there's not much time left. Especially if it's your first child, it's hard to imagine what to expect. That's why many parents-to-be feel the need to "nest".

A baby equipment list is an overview of all the things that are good to have before baby arrives. Some things you will inevitably need, while others you can wait to buy.

Equipment list (nice to have)

This list is baby equipment that you can wait to buy. It's not strictly necessary, and certainly not for everyone. Check through the list and see if there's anything you're missing.
