Re: getting ready for new arrival however scared

I have so many baby clothes and im scared how the weather will turn out. Many poeople talk about in september the weather will break and this is my first kid and im so scared i wont know if he's too cold or too hot.

Im not sure about all this so im in the same boat you are in. So that is a question i also have. The weather here has been so crazy already.

But i plan to really keep the baby in for the first month and a half. except for occasional outtings.

Re: getting ready for new arrival however scared

I think it's really hard to say until you see what the weather is like from day to day. I have warmer clothes ready since our daughter is not due until the end of September. However, it can still get pretty warm here even in October sometimes, so I've tried to have a few cooler outfits available as well. One thing you ALWAYS want to have on hand when out with the baby is a blanket or two. That way, if you dress them a certain way and then the weather changes suddenly, which it can do, then you'll be prepared. Plus when out and about, it can be warm outside, but when taking them inside somewhere it might end up being much cooler. Blankets are always a must! Don't worry about not knowing if your baby is warm enough or's just another one of those things that you learn really quickly.

Re: getting ready for new arrival however scared

You'll do fine. Trust your motherly instincts. Get a new baby book that goes week by week as to what's happening with your baby and make sure your partner reads it, too! Also, check out the infant care board here -- you'll find lots of support and others with similar questions.

And remember that infants can't regulate their body temperatures as easily as adults, so they get hotter quicker and colder easier. So, be more in tune to cold fingers and toes and hot necks as signs to add or take off clothes as appropriate.
