What do you need for good newborn care when baby comes home? Moms, dads, and pediatricians offer their quick tips.

Baby’s on the way and it seems there are dozens of newborn care "must-haves" on your long list.

At the top are modern necessities like infant seats, baby strollers, and cribs of course, but what else do you need to take care of your newborn?

Newborn Care: Bathing

Newborns need a bath two or three times a week, says the American Medication Association. The AMA recommends sponge baths only for baby’s first two weeks, until the umbilical cord falls off. Bathing items that topped the list of moms and the experts include:
Baby tub or small plastic basin
Washcloths or bath mitts
Soft towels (hooded baby towels work well)
Baby shampoo
Baby soap


Newborn Care: Feeding

The best time to make the decision on breastfeeding or bottle feeding is before your baby is born, say the experts. But no matter which you choose, you’re going to need baby bottles -- to store pumped breast milk or formula. Recommended:
12 bottles and nipples
1 brush for cleaning bottles and nipples
12 burp clothes and bibs (some parents use receiving blankets)
Plastic covers for bottles (great for traveling)
Comfortable clothes if you’re breastfeeding
Breast pump

And to make feeding time even easier, breastfeeding and bottle-feeding parents rave about nursing pillows, which can also cradle baby while sleeping.

Newborn Care: The Nursery

Babies need sleep. Lots of sleep. Whether you choose a crib with all the bells and whistles or place baby in a simple cradle near your bed, experts are unanimous on one thing: always place your baby on his or her back when putting them down to sleep.When stocking baby’s nursery, 
Crib (with slats no more than 2-3/8 inches apart)
A tight-fitting, firm mattress
Well-fitting sheets

What about pillows? For safety reasons, pediatrician and American Academy of Pediatrics  suggests keeping all pillows (including crib bumpers) out of your newborn’s bed -- and cautions parents about the risk of pillows in the "family bed" as well. When in doubt, keep it out.

Newborn Care: Clothes & Blankets

Those first weeks will be a busy time for you and baby. Moms and dads were pretty unanimous when it comes to what kinds of clothes and incidentals you need once your newborn comes home:
4-6 long-sleeved onesies
4-6 short-sleeved onesies
4-6 footed sleepers
Swaddling blankets
Socks (look for a style that can’t be kicked off, suggests one mom)

Lots of parents advise against getting too many newborn-sized clothes as baby won’t use them for very long. Clothes they can wear a bit big can be more convenient in the long run.

And because you and the baby won’t be traveling much the first month or so, many parents suggest foregoing newborn shoes, hats, and mittens, opting instead for swaddling blankets to keep baby warm.

Reproductive Health Center has created an extraordinarily warm and friendly atmosphere.  After several years of inadequate treatment, I was almost disappointed.  When I arrived at the Reproductive Health Center of Chachava Clinic I got convinced from the very first moment that infertility was not a verdict for me. With everybody’s effort, patience, attention and professionalism and Lord’s mercy now in my body at the age of 46, new life grows.

 My doctors lead me though all stages of pregnancy, at any time of the day ready to give me a competent answer to any question and calm me down.

Many thanks on Reproductive Health Center team, Especially Keti and Tamta! Thank you for giving me hope and meaning in life@

On a sunny afternoon at our rented Apartment opposite Chachva Clinic gazing out at the clear skies of Tbilisi,Georgia and I am trying to reflect back on how & when it all started and how everything worked out to bring us where we are in our life today- NOW !!!

Nothing short of a miracle we are blessed with Twins a baby boy & a girl after almost 5 years….absolutely humbled and with utmost gratitude we would like to “Thank” the entire Team of JSC Chachava Clinic for giving us hope and supporting us throughout our Surrogacy arrangement.

Specifically,I am thinking about 3 endometriosis surgeries , multiple IVF failures and 2 miscarriage my wife experienced over the past 4 years…..and then we decide to travel to Tbilisi Georgia at Chachava Clinic last year for Surrogacy to be blessed with Twins babies today………..wouldn’t have been possible without the collective effort of the entire Medical Team at Chachava Clinic- Dr. Oliko, Dr.Hakan etc and of course our lovely Surrogate Mother.

Most importantly we would like to Thank Keti Gotridze - Manager of Administration who stood besides us as our pillar of strength all through out. 

Surrogacy as such is a complicated process and was an emotional ride for us….Not all situations were alike. All throughout 12 months Keti was extraordinarily patient with our questions& emails and our phone calls we made from Australia at odd timings. She was always on top of and updated about our Surrogate…her blood results ,consultaltion,reports etc. On the phone she would listen to our questions patiently at length(even when they were silly)…….We had several detailed conversations on the phone and Keti has always given us that extra time until we felt satisfied. In final days here in Tbilisi, we feel like home in Georgia and its mostly because of Keti and her support.Can’t Thank you enough Keti !

There is so much we can go on to say about the rest of the Team members here at Chahchava- Tamara, Tatiana, Dr. Khatuna and their individual help on various occasion.It will be unfair if we don’t ….we have decided to write a blog instead to share our entire Surrogacy experience in Tbilisi,Georgia at Chachava Clinic.

Thank you!


"Due to my hormonal disorders for years, I decided to have a consultation with some other endocrinologist and started to look for a good specialist. One friend of mine recommended me to check Chachava Clinic. And I got the appointment there very soon.

I have made 3 visits to Chachava Clinic over past 4 weeks and have been very impressed by t
he professionalism and individual approach of the staff. First of all, it was easy to get an appointment and all tests that I needed were done in the Chachava laboratory, so I got the results on the same day. Staff are knowledgeable and very helpful. Also the facility is very beautiful. So, overall I was satisfied with the services I received there and would definitely recommend it."
