There is a lot to consider when you’re expecting, which can be a bit overwhelming (which you were probably also expecting). Never fear though, we have created a list of small items that could possible be overlooked — even when they shouldn’t be. Refer to this list whenever you feel like there is something important that you might be missing, and allow it to ease your mind as your due date gets closer and closer!

    • Protecting your baby’s skin is incredibly important – especially with how sensitive their skin is. Getting a baby-friendly sunscreen is even necessary for babies younger than six months.
