Having a newborn baby can be such an exciting time for both you and your partner as well as friends and family. There are just so many cute things out there to buy and some great Luxury Baby Boutiques both online and to visit for you to treat the cute new arrival to. Sometimes there’s too much choice and many first time moms really struggle with what they actually need instead of buying absolutely everything and realising it was a waste of money
We take a look and discover 5 of our favourite newborn baby boutique products that have been designed to keep your newborn baby looking adorable, snuggled in the ultimate comfort as well as being practical.
This is undoubtedly one of the best inventions for new moms. A bedtime sleeper is great for putting your little one in when it comes to bedtime. It looks like a dungaree set with no feet, however it is a sleeping bag with shoulder tabs and arm holes and means that you’re not having to worry about the blanket covering their face as they sleep. They range in different weights for the seasons so that your baby isn’t going to be too hot or too cold. We adore the bebe au lait collection as they have some gorgeous little delicate patterns
Muslin Cloths – The Holy Grail Of A Newborn Baby
These are going to be your absolute lifesaver, they’re multi purpose and you should always pack a couple wherever you are going. Not only are they great for catching that unexpected projectile vomit, they’ll help protect your clothes when you’re winding your new baby. Plus if you’re out and nursing and want a little privacy, as these are lightweight and come in a large size they’re great for giving you any privacy you and your baby desire. There are over 20 different uses for Muslin Cloths so it’s worth your while getting acquainted to them before you baby arrives so you can really utilise how handy they are!
Whilst your newborn is tiny, a hooded towel is a fantastic idea for post-bath cuddle as the hood makes it easy to swaddle them as well as keeping their little head warm as you take them from bath to bed.
As your baby quickly grows from newborn to toddler in the blink of an eye (yes, seriously) the teething stage can cause quite some trauma for the whole household! With teething comes a lot of dribbles. To keep your baby’s clothes dry and to prevent them from getting a rash from being damp, we highly recommend having a selection of cool dribble bibs to match their outfits so not only are you saving them from skin irritations, your little one will look the best at playgroup, baby yoga, meeting up with other new moms or whatever other social events you find yourself at.
Finally, a treat for yourself. Add a nursing pillow to your wishlist so that when you’re feeding your baby, irrespective if you’re breast feeding or bottle feeding (we don’t judge eitherway, as long as you’re doing what’s right for you and your baby) you are both comfortably snuggled. The additional element of support and comfort allows you both to get into the best position to help make the feeding experience as simple as possible. Nursing pillows are also great for helping younger children cuddle new babies the first time they meet them as the added support makes it a little more stable and safe for taking that snap for Facebook!
