Do you feel overwhelmed with the sheer volume of baby accessories and essentials that a newborn baby appears to need. Well you’re not the only one. The first, and most important, thing your newborn needs is lots of love and cuddles. We can’t help with that but we can help with all the rest.
We have also made a list of some other new baby essentials you might find useful, you will be familiar with some and maybe surprised at others.
Muslin squares and swaddles are made from soft breathable cotton and have more uses than you would imagine.
The open weave and lightweight muslin fabric is fully breathable and and keeps your baby warm and cosy without over heating. Muslin sheets make popular swaddling blankets for newborns and are available in a range of colours and sizes.
- use as a swaddling blanket, the ‘give’ in muslin cloth keeps baby secure while not being too restrictive
- easy wash, easy dry burp cloths
- fold into a bandana style bib
- as a breast feeding cover
- great as a tummy-time blanket
- baby wrap
- buggy cover / sun shade
- as a quick changing pad
Changing Bags for Babies
Baby changing bags are one of the items that you think you don’t need, but when you get one you will wonder how you ever managed without one. New mothers simply love them, with all their pockets and spaces keeping everything super organised. Most changing bags come with a changing mat and insulated bottle holders, so handy for going out shopping with baby and you need for change or feed on the go.
My son has long outgrown the need for a baby bag but I still use mine whenever I go out, I can pack my laptop, phone, snacks, book, just about everything, in it
Plenty of baby vests, bodysuits and babygrows are a must. The more sleepsuits and baby all in ones you have the better. Make sure to get ones with poppers at the front and not the back, poppers at the back are a nightmare when changing nappies. 100% cotton babywear is better and organic baby clothes are often considered the best due to the lack of chemicals used in their manufacture.
Newborn baby hats are great for keeping your little one’s head warm and comfortable during their first months of life. Our new baby hats are 100% cotton and super stretchy to fit premature babies, newborns and up to approximately 5 months. Baby hats for newborns are the most popular as they make baby look soooo cute.
We love baby blankets that do what blankets are supposed to do – keep your little one warm and cosy. Knitted baby blankets to add colour to baby’s nursery, organic baby blankets as an eco friendly pesticide free option and cotton baby blankets to keep your little one snug Winter and Summer.
