My daughter Jen and I have been talking about the question of baby preps. She has five children and has been involved in prepping for them. She has a few additional suggestions,
First she agrees with Practical Parsimony on not using baby powder because of the possible effects on their lungs. All five of her children grew up without any baby powder and she says that she never had any problem with diaper rashes.
Second, she always stocked several months of disposable diapers and baby wipers ahead so that if something occurred she did not have to immediately switch to cloth diapers. This will help make a transition easier.
Third, once she discovered the formula that seemed to agree with her child, she stocked four of five months of it. Once they started on baby food she made her own and would freeze it.
She would take her vegetables, steam them and then puree them. She would put them in ice cube trays, since this made a good serving size. You can also can the baby food. She did the same thing with fruits. She also feed the children rice cereal. She kept a good supply of this on hand.
Other items that she feels are important to stock up on are baby Tylenol, and ibuprofen, homeopathic teething tables, and any special medications your child needs.
Clothes are another whole issue, she stocked extra clothing in larger sizes and extra blankets because she lives in a cold area, where heat may be a problem. Things like snow boots are important.
While some people may disagree with her storing infant formula and disposable diapers, etc, she feels that there are several good reasons to do it. One you don’t know what will happen after TEOTWAWKI, because of death or injury breast-feeding may no longer be an option. Water to wash the diapers could be in short supply, especially if you have to bug in because of a pandemic or fallout.
Anyway, these are her thoughts on baby preps.
