Ready, set, nurture - steps for preparing your home for your new baby

Bringing a new baby into your life is an exciting and life-changing event. As you eagerly await the arrival of your little one, you’ll want to make sure your home is a safe and welcoming environment for your growing family.


Here are some of the essential steps you need to take to get your home ready for your new baby.

Childproofing: Begin by childproofing your home, removing any potential hazards, and securing cabinets and outlets. Consider installing safety gates and corner protectors to prevent accidents as your baby starts exploring.

Nursery Setup: Create a comfortable and functional nursery for your baby. Ensure the cot is set up correctly, with a firm mattress and fitted sheets. Keep baby essentials, like nappies, wipes, and clothing, organised and within arm's reach.

If you’re looking for the best option when washing for your little one (you want only the cleanest, softest fabrics next to their skin) Fairy has the answer with their Sensitive Skin Dream Team which includes:

Feeding and changing stations: Designate areas in your home for feeding and changing your baby. Equip these spaces with the necessary supplies, like a comfortable nursing chair or bottle-feeding area and a changing table with nappies and wipes.

Stock up on supplies: Make sure you have a good supply of baby essentials, such as nappies, formula milk if you’re using it, baby wipes, baby clothes, and blankets. Having these on hand will make life much easier during the initial weeks.

Set up a support system: Consider reaching out to friends and family who can provide assistance during those early days – especially if they have offered to help. Having a support system in place can be a huge help in the initial weeks of baby care.

Organise baby gear: Having items like the buggy, car seats, and carriers in an accessible location and all set up in advance will save you time and stress when you’re ready to use them.

Prepare sibling and pet introductions: If you have other children or pets, prepare them for the new arrival. Make the introduction a positive experience to ensure a smooth transition for everyone.

Self-care: Don't forget to take care of yourself during this preparation process. Rest, eat well, and stay hydrated. A well-rested and healthy parent is better equipped to care for a new baby.


Preparing your home for the arrival of your new baby is an important step in ensuring their safety, comfort, and well-being. And making sure it’s a great experience for you too.
