The whole idea of shopping for a little one that isn’t even born can be daunting for any mum. The market is flooded with so many items now in comparison to when I had my first nearly 18 years ago. So where do you start? What items do we really need? Today im going to share a Baby Product List. Some ideas for mums to be of what we have used with our 6.
Baby Product List
We always started off with a side crib/Moses basket and then in a few months we moved to a cot. My babies have all preferred the closeness of being in a Moses basket or crib especially in the early days. Plus it was great having my newborn so close to my bed, meaning I could hold their hands and sooth them easily, especially in the first few weeks.
Blankets and GroBags
Whatever sleeping system you decide to use you will need blankets and in time a grobag if thats what you decide to use. We loved cellular blankets for the few few weeks, a fleece blanket when out and a grobag after a few months.
Muslins and Bibs
There are so many wonderful designs out there for keeping your little one clean. In the early days muslins are fantastic. They can be used for so much as well, plus are easily cleaned and dried.
Playmats and Activity Gyms
When I had Kane I dont think there where any of these softer ones. The twins who are 5 however loved being under theirs. They are great for tummy time as well an some even come with a pillow to allow your child to enjoy tummy time comfortably.
Changing Stations and Bags
Definately not something that you need but if you have space a changing station is a great idea especially for night chnages and dressing babies.You can of course just use a changing mat or of course nothing if your brave. We also used cloth nappies with the twins so we needed a large changing bag to carry everything around.
