It depends on the baby. I hated Pamper's and Huggie's when my daughter was a NB. The Parent's Choice (Walmart brand) worked great for her when she was brand new, but as she got older, I preferred Luv's and Up & Up (Target brand).

We used Seventh Generation for diapers and wipes initially. They changed the design though during our use and we didn't like it so we switched.



Gave him his first bath at two weeks, occasionally used Aquaphor Gentle Baby Wash but most products can dry out skin and since they have sensitive skin as it is, just water tends to be best. We give just water baths now and they work well.

I used pampers swaddlers with both mine as newborns and huggies one and done wipes. Sponge bath every 2-3 days from birth using California Baby products. Actual bath in tub after the cord falls off.

As a nb we had pampers, huggies, and target brand diapers. I think target brand was my favorite, but the other brands were bought for us so we used them as well. The wipes I like the most have been the huggies brand I think. They are thick enough to deal with the weird newb poops but still gentle.



We did sponge baths when DS got home. Usually every other day or two and then once his cord was off we did regular baths, same time in between. We've used the johnson products and the target brand lol.

When DD was a newborn, we loved huggies little snugglers and pampers swaddlers. We used huggies wipes (I HATED the smell of the pampers wipes) and preferred the unscented ones. We've used aveeno since she was a newborn. It is kind of trial and error. Now that she's bigger, I prefer luvs diapers and costco wipes.

I always just used my hand or a small washcloth. Plenty of people co-sleep its a personal choice. Just make sure to do it safely.

You'll get mixed opinions on that. Some people are for co-sleeping, some are against it. If you're going to co-sleep, research safe methods for doing so.

We just used baby wash cloths, no sponge.



As for where baby sleeps, it is totally a personal preference. Generally, it's best to have baby in the same room with you in the beginning. You can put baby in a bassinet or pack and play right next to your bed. Bed sharing, if done safely, can be wonderful. It really helps breastfeeding go smoothly. DD has slept in my bed from day 1. If you decide to bed share, I encourage you to research safe cosleeping practices. If you do it safely, breastfeed, and aren't under the influence of alcohol/drugs, then it might be the right choice for you.



Good luck!

i used huggies for both my girls up until they were a year old. it would just fit around their little bodies so well. when they got older and more mobile i switched to good ol parents choice. i would prefer using them on a newborn-baby, if they wasnt so straight fitting. for wipes, huggies cucumber & green tea scented. LOVE them! we keep them around in bulk for mulitiple purposes.



i didnt use any wash on my girls until after the umbillical cord fell off and it was healed. then i used johnsons bedtime lavendar wash, or something like that. sorry my youngest is 3 now so we dont have the baby-baby stuff anymore.

boy or girl? I've had 4 kids, two boys, two girls. In my experience.... Pampers diapers SPECIFICALLY the swaddlers.. are best for newborn girls. After size 1-2 as long as my baby didn't have sensitive skin.. it didn't matter so much. but with a tiny bottom... any other diaper (ESPECIALLY HUGGIES) they peed right out the side of them... especially when breast feeding... tummy to tummy laying sideways.



Huggies wipes though.. FANTASTIC. thick enough and enough texture.. MOST dirty diapers I could change with 1-2 wipes. Pampers wipes.. are worthless completely.
