What You Should Buy for Your Baby - Boys Town Pediatrics Quick Tip

Heather Zimmerman, M.D.

One of the most important clothing items is actually a sleep sack. They make these great ones that have a Velcro piece that comes across and it takes out the complexity of learning how to swaddle a baby, which is such an essential key for your baby when you're trying to​ put them down to sleep.

That is something I'd tell parents, if you didn't get a sleep sack as a shower gift, go out and buy one now because you'll use it every day.​​

Knowing what is the most useful newborn item will help when preparing for your new baby. Heather Zimmerman, M.D. at Boys Town Pediatrics, provides information on the Sleep Sack and swaddling. ​
