So you’re a new Grandma? In order to make visits to your home easier for your Grandchild (and their parents!), it’s good to have a few things on hand. Here are some starter supplies every new Grandma needs.
Starter Supplies New Grandmas Need
As a new Grandma, did you ever wonder what supplies new Grandmas need at their house?
Some Grandmas live close by, others a little farther away, and there are those Grandmas who live many miles away from their Grandchildren.
There are Grandmas with one brand new baby Grandchild and the Grandma with older Grandchildren.
I’m a Grandma with two Grandchildren, but others have many more.
In other words, every Grandma situation is unique.
Our needs differ, our time with our Grandchildren varies, and our connections depend upon a lot of factors out of our control.
So, no matter how many Grands you have, their ages, their location, or the amount of time you get to spend with them, you want to be the best Grandma you know how to be.
What Things Do New Grandparents Need to Have?
I’ve made a list of items that you may want to have available at your home for those times your Grandchild visits.
Consider their ages, how often they visit with and without their parents, and how many Grands you have in your life.
Look over the list of what to keep at a Grandparent’s house for baby and see if any or all of these items would benefit you when your Grands are in your home.

Mom here - the gesture is sweet but these kind of things really should be approved by the parents before purchasing/getting used. Things like a carseat, sleeping sitatuion are VERY important and parents will want to have a say in what items are used with their babies/kids.

Another excellent post. We have 25 grandkids, scattered across the country, ranging in age from a couple months old (twins) to 30. Our tenth great-grandchild is due this summer. We used to keep coloring & activity books with crayons in our RV (we were full-time RVers for ten years) but the youngest ones out grew that. then we bought a house in Tennessee and got to meet another family with five (including the newest twins) grandkids. Yup, bought coloring books, crayons and bubble maker for them when they visit. LOL!
