Baby Basics :: Introduction

Schäfer – 8 minutes old.

Welcome to my Baby Basics blog series. I occasionally receive e-mails from first time Mom’s who either live in China or are about to move to China . These emails contain similar questions:

What can I get in China?
What should I bring from America?
What baby accessory did you love?
Can a Graco stroller survive ancient Chinese sidewalks?

Truth be told, I think I’m a little peculiar to ask this question to. All of my babies were made and born in China. I’ve never registered at Target. I’ve only entered Babys”R”Us once and that was enough to sustain me for a lifetime.

When I gathered my baby basics in 2006, taobao.com didn’t exist. Back then, I collected most items from a family who was “done”. The rest came via ship rate. Well, the slow boat to China has long stopped sailing and taobao.com is now all the rage.

That considered, I thought I would take some time to write about what we found to be most useful.

I hope to cover most items through the following topics:
pregnancy
sleeping
diapering
eating
transportation
play
bath
clothing
books

When this series is done, I’ll add it to a tab for easy access.

Here we go…
