Hi guys! I’ve been so touched by all the messages I’ve had since Inès arrived and we are enjoying the early few weeks in our baby bubble. It was definitely easier knowing what I needed the second time around but it can still be totally overwhelming deciding what you need for your new baby. So, I decided to create my newborn essentials guide for first time parents as well as well-seasoned ones! I got to re-use a lot of things from when Honor was tiny as I knew we were having a girl but the majority of my newborn essentials below can be used for any little one. I’ve added everything (or similar) to the Baby & Maternity section of my Amazon shop.
The softest onesies I’ve found, Baby Mori make sleepsuits and swaddle bags in delicious organic cotton and bamboo. I sort of wish I could have a matching one. The colours are simple but so useful: stripes, blues, pinks and plain ones. I’ve massively over ordered on these.
When people say you can never have enough muslins…it’s completely and 100% true. Aden+Anais have some very pretty prints in different materials; cotton and viscose made from bamboo which gets softer the more you wash it. I love their layered cotton muslin sleeping bags too, which keep the baby cool overnight and negate the need for cot sheets.
