Celebrity baby or not, getting ready for a bundle of joy takes work. What are three ways you and your partner can prepare for the arrival of your little one?

Cupid’s Advice:

The latest celebrity baby news has us all excited, but preparing for your newborn will take some work. Here are three ways to prepare for the arrival of your little one:

1. Talk to other moms: There are many things about childbirth and infant care that only a veteran mom would know, so make sure you ask a friend or family member what to expect and how to prepare. They’ll have recommendations for everything from what kind of crib to buy to what kind of bottles work best and can share tips on how to keep your marriage strong post-baby.

2. Prepare the nursery: Make sure that you are ready to bring your new baby into your home. Have the crib, changing table, and glider set-up before your little one arrives. Buy some clothes too — but not too many since you never know how big or small your bundle of joy will be! Once they’re born, you probably won’t have time to do these things.

3. Pick a doctor: The best time to start looking for a pediatrician is when you’re still pregnant. You want to give yourself plenty of time to find someone who fits with your family and also accepts your insurance. Make sure they have a similar stance on vaccinations and medications too. Ask for suggestions from your OB/GYN or your nearby friends and family. This way, you’ll be ready when that first cough comes up!
