When should I take care of the initial baby equipment?

From the fifth month on, you can slowly start running errands. Since babies also like to be born before the calculated date, it makes sense to get the most important things by the 36th week of pregnancy. Our checklist for your personal initial equipment for your baby contains all the important utensils you need from the pharmacy and is also available as a PDF file.
