That motherhood is transformative is not a matter of doubt, and the changes it brings are even in the vocabulary of new mothers! Many baby items have super weird names, and it’s not every mother who recognizes their meaning at first.
To help you assemble your layette without forgetting these essential items, which have different names, we have separated the names that generate most doubts for you to prepare!
Okay, let’s start with an easy item! The bodysuit is one of the most popular baby items, and is nothing more than a t-shirt-like piece of clothing, which can have long or short sleeves. The difference is that between the legs, there’s a buttonhole with push buttons. Bodysuits are essential for dressing the little ones more practically, especially on the hottest days, and they protect the baby’s back and tummy without exposing these parts because of the baby’s movements or when we hold him in our arms.
Mijão or culote
Now the names are getting weirder! The culote in this case is not synonymous with localized fat! Lol… That’s the name of another piece of baby clothing, which is nothing more than a pair of elastic pants at the waist, which sometimes comes with little feet too.
The maternity ward is one of the baby items that moms love! It’s a great way to make your baby cuddly and elegant to parade around the maternity ward, ready to go home for the first time. The difference between her and the other clothes is that the maternity wardrobe is a set of various items, which includes a dress or bodysuit, jacket, cap, gloves – and a blanket or baby bag. All the pieces match with each other, with the same print and colors, it’s a cute!
That little pan has the same function as the blanket. It is usually made of flannel, very soft, and is used to wrap the newborn. You can also use the cuff to cover some surface where it will support the baby, to cover the breast during breastfeeding, if you prefer, or inside the stroller to cover it. This is one of the baby items that is indispensable on cold days.
You can tell by the name what it’s all about! The baby bag, also known as the baby carrier, is perfect for the little ones who are more agitated because it avoids the use of blankets and blankets. If your baby moves around a lot during sleep, for example, the baby bag keeps him warm without him being able to find out. This item is used more during the first months of life because of its size, and can also be used for walks to give the little one more comfort.
The regurgitators are like the shoulder pads, which are used to put on your shoulder while making the baby burp. It is common to find regurgitator models that come with a pocket to put another diaper (mouth) inside. They are super practical and functional, perfect for keeping your baby clean. A valid tip is to always keep an eye on the fabric composition, which should be soft so as not to irritate the baby’s skin.
The name is familiar, but in the nursery it takes on another meaning! Trunk holders are baby items with many uses, but the main one is storing diapers and other baby belongings that are used more often. Tram racks are often used in the crib or nappy changing corner of the bedroom. They look great in the decor and you can even choose a theme model of the way you want!
The pharmacy is one of the baby items that helps in the organization of the room. You can use them to store medicines, as the name already indicates, or any other type of offal, so that they are not spread around the room. They are stylish little boxes that are used to organize and even decorate the room.
This biblically named object can be a bit enigmatic for those outside the universe of motherhood. The moisés is a kind of reduced cot, similar to a basket, which is used for the baby to sleep in a smaller space during the first months of life. Today you find models of all kinds, some are more like a mini crib, and others resemble a baby comfort.
Kangaroo or sling
When you think about kangaroo, you picture the little boy in the bag, right? This baby item follows the same idea! The kangaroo, or sling, is used to hold the baby closer to mum or dad, close to the body, without using the hands. The kangaroo is usually a little more technological, with buckles and supports for the baby’s spine, and is usually made of synthetic fabrics. The sling is a large fabric, with or without rings, that the mother or father can wrap around the body holding the baby with a secure tie.
