Yael Denbo, co-founder of inBloom – NYC’s premiere baby planning service – knows how to nest. Here’s how Yael (pictured here in May at her baby shower – she gave birth to an amazing baby boy in July!) readied her home for baby:
Kitchen Prep: Your kitchen will be a hub of activity. Sterilize cabinets and surfaces, from the top down. And eliminate clutter. You’ll need the space.
Pre-wash: Baby clothes, sheets and blankets can be filled with chemicals. Pre-wash anything that will touch baby’s skin with a safe detergent like Dreft.
First Aid Kit: Keep an infant nail clipper, cotton balls, thermometer, nasal aspirator, infant Tylenol and baby gas drops within reach. And always discuss medications with your pediatrician before giving to baby.
