In Canada, there are many nursery organizers available. Many of the online websites sell them, but you can also buy them off Amazon and other more international sites.

Baby nursery organizers are important. They can help you organize baby’s things into easily findable options such as diapers together, sleepers together, towels together etc.

It is important when you work with a baby to know exactly where everything is. When you are busy with the baby, there is usually not a lot of time available to look for things. Especially if you just bathed baby and forgot to take out a towel! That is where a nursery organizer is very handy. If you know exactly where everything is, it’s easy to pull it out without looking, and thereby you can still have your attention fully on your baby.

There are many different types of nursery organizers. There are foldable ones that can be stacked away and plastic ones that are up permanently, as a shelf or in the cupboard. But whichever one you decide on getting, know that a nursery organizer is a very useful thing in a baby nursery!

Baby Swaddle Blanket

Baby Swaddle Blankets

Baby swaddle blankets are baby blankets that you cannot do without. A baby needs to be swaddled if it’s going to feel happy. The reason for this is that the baby spent nine months inside the tummy of the mommy and now suddenly have a lot more space around them. They are no longer cramped.

The problem is that the baby is not used to this. That is why swaddling a baby in a blanket is so important. To give the baby a sense of normality (as far as you can) and to get the baby back to the feeling of being in the womb. This only applies to tiny babies.

To obtain baby swaddle blankets is not a hard thing. Walmart Canada as well as Amazon Canada sells baby swaddle blankets. There are many to choose from. There are read folded ones that you don’t need to fold, ones that you fold around the baby and different fabric ones. There are baby swaddle blankets for strollers, especially handy in the cold weather of Canada, and then there are muslin and flannel baby swaddling blankets.

Muslin baby swaddle blankets are made of lightweight material, but isn’t as soft as flannel. Flannel on the other hand is the soft type of fabric, almost like your pj’s. I have always preferred baby swaddle blankets in flanel as they are nice and soft.

Baby monitors have become very popular in modern day life. What has become even more popular is baby monitors with camera and audio. These are available in Canada and worldwide actually.

Why do you need to choose a baby monitor with a camera and audio? Peace of mind is one answer that comes my way immediately. The thing is, when you have a baby, you cannot be with baby 24/7. There are times when you need to go to the washroom, go take a shower, go make some lunch for yourself or simply lie down a little to rest. It’s at these times when baby monitors with camera and audio come in very handy.

You can have peace of mind knowing that your baby is sleeping safely by being able to watch the baby on a remote screen. The baby monitor (crib unit) will broadcast a signal to the remote (parent unit) screen where you will be able to see your baby in real time, on the baby monitor camera and you will be able to hear the baby via the baby monitor audio. It will be as if you are right next to your baby.

Baby Bum Cream

Baby Bum Cream in Canada

There are many options available when it comes to looking for baby bum cream. Canada has specific bum creams that are available here but nowhere else.

When it comes to choosing baby bum cream, it really depends on what type of diapers you are going to be using. Are you going to go for disposable diapers? Are you going to use modern cloth diapers? The type of diaper determines the type of baby bum cream that you should get.

Then there is also the type of skin sensitivity to work in. Some babies are much more prone to diaper rash than other babies. Choosing a baby bum cream can take time and be trial and error until you find the right one.

For disposable diapers, Sudo cream and other cream based baby bum cream are always good options. But when it comes to modern cloth diapers, these diapers cannot handle the baby bum cream and it affects the amount of water that the diaper can hold. For these types of diapers, it’s best to use a non cream based baby bum cream.

Non cream based baby bum creams are mostly coconut oil based products. You can use pure natural coconut oil that you mix into a paste with corn starch, or you can just spray coconut oil on during the hot weather. This works well to remove diaper rash too. It is also said to be a lot healthier to use coconut oil as a baby bum cream.

The advantages to having a newborn cloth diaper on your baby is that the newborn cloth diaper is designed for a premie or newborn, depending on the size you choose. It also protects the baby’s skin from chemicals and other things that may cause excema and other skin conditions.

Because newborn cloth diapers are natural, bum cream cannot be used on it. People who diaper with newborn cloth diapers use coconut oil for the baby’s bum, which is a lot healthier in any case. The newborn cloth diapers also save a lot of money as you do not need to keep buying. In addition, it’s an easy once or twice a week load of washing in the normal washing machine.

The disadvantages of newborn cloth diapers are that the baby outgrows them and you need to then move to one size fits all cloth diapers which can grown with your baby as they grow.
