It’s the age old question (well really, modern day question!), what do we actually need for a baby? We can find ourselves getting caught up in all the baby ads and cool products on Insta and it can be quite overwhelming! Particularly for first-time mums and dads. And to be honest I think it’s a very personal thing. A product can be fantastic for one mama (or baby!) and useless for another. We really do learn by trial and error – welcome to parenting 101!
Nevertheless, I’ve put together a pretty awesome list of Newborn Essentials that I think will serve *most* parents. I’ve either personally used these products or they’re on my wish list for baby #3 – if we ever decide to go there! I haven’t included nursery items such as a cot but I’ll be sure to do a ‘Nursery Essentials’ blog post in the near future.
Anyway, If you’re currently preggers (or trying, or thinking about it!) I hope this helps you narrow down the must-buy list! Or if you’ve been there before and think you have anything to add, pop it in the comments below.
