If your due date is just around the corner - it means it’s time to get stocked up on all those newborn essentials. From baby clothes to nappy changing must-haves, it can be overwhelming trying to figure out just how much stuff one tiny person needs (and costs!)
A list is key for significant moments like these, which is why we’ve come up with the ultimate checklist for all your newborn essentials. We have gathered all the necessities for you and your newborn so you don't have to worry about the less essential items. In this blog, we'll cover it all.
Even though it may not always feel like it, sleep is a huge part of a newborn’s routine.
In fact, newborn babies spend more time asleep than awake for the first few months of their life (if only their parents could be so lucky). Therefore, it seems sense that you would want the new member of your family's sleep space to be as secure and comfortable as possible.
Enter the Moses basket.
A Moses basket is a terrific choice for both babies and parents since it provides a cosy, secure place for them to rest their heads.
Not only does regular bathing maintain your baby’s hygiene and wellbeing, bath time actually has many cognitive and emotional benefits which will encourage development. All the senses that are engaged during this special time encourage their brain to really focus and pay attention.
The feel of the water on their skin, watching water pour and drain, playing with bubbles, smelling soothing scents, and most importantly, the time for touch. Experts have also found that baths can de-stress and relax your baby to promote a good night’s sleep.
Milestones are an exciting time for you and your little one, and watching your child learn and develop their skills as they grow from baby to toddler is one of the many highlights of parenthood.
It’s important to remember however, that it isn’t a competition or a race. Our little ones will progress at their own pace, and if they take a little longer to reach a milestone moment than other children their age - that’s perfectly alright.
