Why we created our new baby essentials lists…
My Baby List was created by our own personal experience of not knowing where to start when preparing for our first baby.
As the years passed we reaslised that not everything that we did buy for baby was in fact essential, but this is likely because we were blindly shopping and had no starting point.
We have created a comprehensive set of check lists with everything for mum to be, and the new baby. From nappies to nursery items and from baby bodysuits to breast pads.
Some of the baby items we list are essential, such as a car seat for bringing your newborn home from the hospital. But others are nice to have if you can afford it (such as isofix car seat base).
The more we added to the list, the more we realised that this could make the buying experience even more stressful, so it is important to remember that you don’t need to get all of these baby goodies in one go. In fact, you will be given a LOT of items as baby-shower gifts etc. We found that the most important items to have ready – is the contents of your (and baby’s) hospital essentials. personally, we could have clothed our gorgeous baby boy for weeks, just with the presents, and the freebies that are given out by the hospital.
Please let us know if you have any feedback, or if you feel we have missed something.
