Before Getting Started

Before you feel like you must purchase all the items listed below because they are "must have gear," it is important to remember that some of the baby gear you already have will still work for your spica baby. Or, some of the products we mention may NOT work for you. Some of the items below, like strollers and high chairs, have multiple products listed under them. All the products mentioned have been successfully used by spica parents, and are given as different options you can try if one does not work for you.


SPICA BABY CARE ITEMS

SPICA BABY CLOTHING

  • Onsies large enough to go over cast. Generally, one or two sizes larger than what they wore prior to going in the cast.
  • T-shirts or dresses that fit over the top of the cast. Again, one or two sizes larger than what they wore before the cast.
  • Socks

OUTSIDE SPICA BABY GEAR

Note: Some parents have found Caroline's Carts provided in some stores work well with spica babies when a small pillow or blanket is added behind their backs.
