Nice-to-have items for infant

These are not essentials but absolutely time and energy savers if you can afford them:

  1. Disposable high-absorbent diapers
    • This is a no-brainer unless one of the parents are not working, or you have in-house helpers to help washing reusable cloth diapers. Sure, cloth diapers are cute and can save money in the long run, but it's really hard to maintain: you need tens of them, quick change when baby peed/pooped, non-stop washing.
    • It's a good choice if your time can be better spent bonding with your baby and your earnings outweigh the cost.
  2. Foldable light-weight stroller
    • Having used an older heavier (10kg) foldable stroller and switched to a much lighter and smaller one (Joie pact), it does make a huge difference.
  3. Nursing pillow
    • If the mother does breastfeed, this will definitely relief her from extreme sore waist.
  4. Electric milk pump
    • It can never beat your baby to be the best milk pump, but it will help in stocking up milks.
  5. Electric sterilizer
    • It's just much convenient than boiling and sterilize bottles by hands.
  6. Indoor clothes dryer
    • Need quick turnover time for baby clothes or daily bedsheets for infant care? There are some really affordable and small sized dryers from China.
