Ideas For Newborn Items

As I have a few pregnant 1st-time mums as followers I just wanted to share some ideas for Newborn items for the first few weeks and of course, their hospital bag if you are having a hospital birth 🙂 Everybody likes different things so if you have any other ideas please please pop them in the comments below. I made the mistake of buying loads of newborn items when I had my first baby 16 years ago, I assumed they would last, how wrong I was. Babies grow so quickly and they only stay in small/newborn items for a few weeks so don’t buy too much of this size would be my 1st top tip. Also, my 1st baby was 9lbs and so long so some newborn didn’t even fit him lol

  • Vests, I absolutely loved the vests with no poppers, made it so much easier especially when they were tiny changing nappies, and stopped a normal vest rubbing on their umbilical cord. Mothercare has a fab selection, but I’m sure other brands now make them as well.
  • Mittens-great items for when babies are tiny keeps little hands warm and stops them scratching themselves if you find that the ones you have bought fall off pop socks on, works exactly the same and they won’t move 🙂
  • Burp cloths
  • Baby grows
  • Car Seat
  • Somewhere for baby to sleep ie Sidecar/Moses Basket/Sheets/Blanket
  • Hooded towels
  • Baby bath (or just use a sink or bath)
  • Cotton wool/Wipes/Nappy Cream
  • Baby wash/shampoo
  • Nappy cream
  • Nappies (real/disposable)
  • Socks
  • Hats (Winter/Summer)
  • Cardigans
  • Coat/Pram Suit
  • Bibs

Hope you found that helpful and please do add to the list below
