1. Baby Bath

Part of every baby’s daily routine is a having a nice warm bath.  May households today don’t even have a bath and those that do don’t want to bathe their newborn in it as it is too big, takes too much time to fill and wastes a lot of water.

This is where we introduce you to our top selling bath, the Skip Hop Moby Bath.

The Skip Hop Moby Smart Sling 3 Stage Baby Bathtub grows with baby through three stages making it useful from birth to toddler.

Plus this baby bath tub is shaped like a whale making bathing your baby even more fun. How can you resist washing bub in a gorgeous whale?

This bath has a removable & washable mesh sling that locks into two positions so you can bathe your newborn while fully supported by this sling, and then you can change it to the lower position for older babies who are learning to sit unaided.

The dual layered mesh and comfort-edge construction of this sling securely cradles baby from head-to-toe freeing up your hands & arms for washing baby and caring for them during bath time.

Simply remove the bath sling when baby has mastered sitting and easily bathe baby in the spacious baby bath tub that has no uncomfortable plastic bumps that make bath time uncomfortable.

It can often be hard keeping baby happy and entertained while you get on with the things you need to do.  You want baby to be safe and happy during those moments when you simply do not need the interruption like when you are showering, or cleaning up or simply taking a well earned break.

3. Baby Monitor

A baby monitor is a must have item these days.  Parents love a good video monitor as it can help them monitor baby from another room or another level of the house or even from the backyard.  A good video monitor will especially give them peace of mind when the parents or carers are asleep.

Having a video monitor on bub means should they stir, you don’t need to stop what you are doing and make a trip to the baby nursery to see what they are doing.  You can simply look at the monitor to assess if they are just stirring or need you there.

Without doubt the tech company Oricom are the makers of some of the best video baby monitors  on the market today.

The Shnuggle Toddler Bath can then be used up until around 4 years old depending on size of child.

5. Change Mat

A baby can go through an average of 2,200 nappies in the first year.  With the average time to change a nappy being 5 minutes that means a baby will spend about 183 hours lying down having their nappy changed.  Knowing that so much time is spent changing them you want to ensure they have a good clean and comfy surface on which to lie.

We absolutely love the Leander Matty Nappy Change Mat because we think it is the best!

Leander’s all-in-one change mat Matty transforms any flat surface into a safe baby change station. Bub will be super comfy lying straight on Matty thanks to its super soft material.

6.  Non Contact Thermometer

The one item every parent will need when they have a baby is a thermometer.  It is the only way to accurately tell if baby has a fever.  Taking a babies temperature can be quite challenging at the best of times but when they are sick the wriggly and squirm and cry making it so hard to get an accurate reading with a standard thermometer.  Plus if they are asleep, you want to be able to accurately take their temperature without waking them.

This is why we recommend a contact free thermometer and our favourite one is the Oricom HFS1000 Non-Contact Infrared Thermometer.

This clever little thermometer allows you to measure your baby’s temperature without any contact involved making it so easy to operate with no risk of virus transmission. No struggle.  No stress.

The colour coded display makes fever monitoring simple and effortless.

It can store up to 32 recorded temperatures making it super easy to track and trend temperature readings.

It’s large backlight display makes reading the result so easy even in the dark middle of the night.

7. Nappy Bin

Changing dirty nappies multiple times a day is bad enough but to having to deal with the smell is even worse.  You can’t just pop them in the kitchen bin as the smell tends to waft out and smells out the house. You could just pop them in the outside bin but this is the very last thing you want to be doing in the cold, or when it is raining or when it is in the middle of the night.

Make disposing of baby’s nappies a breeze with the Ubbi Nappy Bin.  This clever bin can be placed right next to your change station and can hold up to 58 nappies so you really only need to empty this bin once a day even if you multiple bubs in nappies.

There are many benefits to pumping your breast milk for baby.  Pumping allows you to build up your milk supply even before baby needs more milk.  This extra breast milk can then be stored for later use.

10. Drying Rack

Babies up to 2 months old will want to feed every 3 – 4 hours.  This is around the clock.  So this means that every 24 hours a baby will go through around 6 – 8 bottles a day.

To keep the bottles clean and germ free it is recommended that they be cleaned and sterilised and left to air dry.

With so many bottles being washed and dried throughout the day it can take up a lot of bench space.

This is why we recommend the Oxo Tot Space Saving Drying Rack.

With a compact design the Space Saving Drying Rack will hold cups, bottles, and all their parts without cluttering the bench top.

The angled pegs hold cups and bottles at just the right angle for thorough drying, while the top & base are perfect for drying those fiddly bits such as valves and dummies.

When you leave the house with a baby you need to take a lot of stuff with you.  So much stuff it is hard to believe when you first become a parent.  From nappies, to bottles, to wipe cloths, to a change of clothes and so much more.

To leave the house with all of the essentials and some not so essentials you not only need a good sized bag, but you need to be able to access any one thing in a moments notice.

12. Pram Caddy

When you first have a baby one  you spend a fair amount of time walking them in the pram.  It’s a great way to get your fitness back after being pregnant and also a wonderful way to entertain baby with all the sights and sounds of the big world and to also soothe them off to sleep.

When out & about with baby it is essential to pack a few things.  A spare nappy or two, some wipes, a bottle, some water for you and your wallet, keys and mobile.

13. Carrier

For a newborn, there is nothing as comforting and soothing as being held close to mum.  When held close to mum’s chest they feel her warm, they hear her heart beat and they find great comfort in breathing in her smell.  Some babies simply need more comfort than others and this is wear popping them in a baby carrier can provide immense comfort for baby and a great relief for mum who can get about her day hands free.

We absolutely love the Ergobaby Embrace Carrier to keep your newborn baby close and snug from day one.

Getting out of the house to take a break when you have newborn baby is not as easy as it seems.  Mainly because you need to take the baby with you. So you pop them in the pram and head off to your favourite cafe to grab a well needed coffee but as soon as you stop the pram, baby wakes!

16. Sleep Nest

There is a lot of debate about where a newborn should have their sleeps. Many sources will tell you the best place for a newborn baby to sleep is in a bassinet in their parent’s room.  Many parents prefer the option of co-sleeping as they find when they co-sleep their baby goes to sleep faster and for longer.  It also makes night time feeding that much easier.

A sleep nest is a great place to pop bub for sleeps should you choose to co sleep.  As a sleep nest is lightweight and portable you can pop it on any safe flat surface in the house so bub can sleep where ever you may be.  You can also take a nest out and about with you so bub always has a familiar place to lie down for a snooze.

When it comes to sleep nest we love Done By Deer’s Cozy Nest.  It is the perfect size for babies from birth up to 12 months of age.

17. Nappy Caddy

Skip Hop Light Up Nappy Caddy

When you first bring baby home it seems all you are doing is feeding and changing them.  Mainly because that is indeed the case, but also because you do it around clock.

To make life easier during this time you need a nappy caddy that you can pack with your changing essentials and have it with you for those nappy changes.

At night most new parents keep their caddy next to the change station but when it’s dark the last thing you want to do is  wake a sleepy baby by flicking on the light to change their nappy.

This is why we love Skip Hop’s Light Up Nappy Caddy.

This light weight yet versatile & sturdy nappy caddy features a unique touch-sensitive light on the handle.

18. Sleep Aid + Vaporiser

Getting a baby to sleep and to stay asleep is one of the most challenging aspects of being a new parent.  When they are little they need to feel safe and secure and comfortable before they fall asleep.  Plus a newborn’s sleep cycle last for only 45 minutes so they easily stir and wake faster that you know it.

We love the idea of gently soothing your baby to sleep with the world’a first advanced sleep aid vaporise, the Aroma Snooze.

The Aroma Snooze has been specifically designed to improve and enhance the sleep of the whole family, from new born babies, to senior family members.

Featuring a pulsing light that changes through the red-orange light colour spectrum to stimulate melatonin levels – the hormone in our body that regulates sleep.

The Aroma Snooze’s light can also oscillate between shades of the full colour spectrum of LED light, for a soothing and mesmerising effect and can be set to individual colours if desired.

The Aroma Snooze has a built in music & sound component that plays sleep inducing melodies like Rock-A-Bye Baby. Choose the pink noise option for its sleep-enhancing properties, pink noise slows down and regulates brain waves allowing for a deeper, longer sleep. The comforting heart beat sound is great for relieving separation anxiety while the rain sound is soothing for both adults and children.

The built in voice recorder will allow you to personalise your Aroma Snooze experience by making a recording (up to 30 seconds) that can be played on a continuous loop. Perhaps you may like to record a) A favourite song b) Positive words of encouragement c) A comforting ‘shhhh’ sound.

The Aroma Snooze adds a very light moisture (300ml over 10 hours) back into the atmosphere to create a better breathing environment. It may also help you to sleep more comfortably and prevent dry skin conditions.

In the first few weeks of a baby’s life, new parents prefer to have their baby sleep in their room with them.  The best option for this is a baby bassinet as it smaller than a cot and most often portable so you can move them from room to room as it suits.

20. Baby Food Maker

It is recommended that around 6 months of age that baby is introduced to solid food by way of weaning them slowly off their milk.  This can be both and exciting and overwhelming time for both parent and baby.

To ensure the best start to a baby’s food journey it is no secret that they should be introduced to healthy, nutritious foods that fuel their body.  They also need a wide variety of foods and textures for development of their motor skills and to encourage baby to enjoy their diet.

While store bought food is super easy and convenient, there is nothing better than a home cooked meal made with a pinch of love.

We love the Beaba Babycook Neo Baby Food Maker as it the simplest, easiest and most fun way to make a huge range of foods that baby will love.

Babycook Neo’s four settings eliminate the need for pots, a blender and a microwave so that making baby food is as simple as possible.

23. Steriliser

A baby’s immune system isn’t developed enough to fight off some infections. Their main source of nutrition is milk a breeding ground for bacteria, which can make baby sick.

Cleaning and sterilising all bottle-feeding equipment reduces baby’s chances of getting sick. It is important to sterilise feeding equipment & accessories until baby is 12 months old.

The best steriliser is one that is big, fast and doesn’t take up too much space.

We recommend the Tommee Tippee Electric Steam Steriliser as is the best one for the job.

When baby is first born it is so incredible to hold their little hands and feet.  Those little fingers and toes are just so tiny and ridiculously adorable.  But they grow so fast and then it becomes so hard to believe that they were ever that tiny.

We love the Pearhead Babyprints Frame as it comes with everything you need to capture your little ones hand and feet imprints and store them beautifully.

The included ink is designed so that baby’s delicate skin doesn’t touch any ink and is super easy to do.

Then once dry you can store them and your favourite newborn pic in the wooden shadowbox frame and hang in your favourite spot or stow away in your special memories box
